How Not to Be a Lawyer - Theatrical Version

I'm immeasurably proud of all my children, including James, who comes home next week from his summer as a teaching assistant in the EPGY program at Stanford, and Matthew who starts med school at Michigan next week IMG_0285 (where we'll be attending his White Coat Ceremony), but today we focus on my daughter, Arielle (Columbia, MFA, Dramaturgy, expected '10, pictured, in the middle between director Jeremiah Matthew Davis and playwright Daniella Shoshan), who combines an actor's creative instincts, leadership, and an amazing ability to organize things as the producer of Tell It to Me Slowly, one of the plays featured in the New York International Fringe Festival, "the largest multi-arts festival in North America, with more than 200 companies from all over the world performing for 16 days in more than 20 venues."

One of Arielle's claims to fame is the way in which she anticipated the Big Law meltdown of 2008-09, having worked for a year following her graduation from Sarah Lawrence College in 2006 as a litigation paralegal at Weil, Gotshal & Manges in New York, thinking perhaps about going to law school.  Somehow all the thrills and excitement of paralegal life just didn't do it for her.  I wonder why.

Tell It to Me Slowly runs for five performances between August 15 and 29 at the Robert Moss Theater in New York.  I'll see you there on the 29th.
