I was so honored this week to present my paper “Mirrors to Mirrors: Metadrama and Reflexivity in Shakespeare and Boogie Nights” at the Pop Culture Association’s National Conference.
This was my first opportunity to present at an academic conference and everyone was very supportive. The chair of my area invited me to return for next year’s event, and I met some very interesting scholars who inspired me to look even further into this relatively new area of adaptation studies. Since I’ve been writing adaptations for the Windy City Players for sixteen years, it seems a natural fit.
The conference was in Seattle, and I had a chance to catch Luna Gale at Seattle Rep – an impressive facility, and a play with a lot of potential.
