I love to direct new and existing works, from solo shows to full-length plays with big casts.

Drama Queens on Recent Tragic Events: "Thanks to this ensemble of gifted actors, Tongue in Cheek’s production of Recent Tragic Events is an effective one, filled with moments of real warmth, humor, and connection."
OnStage re: Relentlessly Pleasant: "Ms. Lipman also succeeds in bringing this emotional play to life. Over the past year, I’ve seen and reviewed a number of shows that have covered the topic of sexual assault and harassment, and this one easily stands out as one of the most wonderfully written plays focusing on this issue that I’ve had the chance to see. It’s no surprise to me that this show has gotten the audience reaction that it has."
