Crystal is an award winning Brooklyn based playwright. Her recent plays King Kirby, co-written with Fred Van Lente, Geek!, and Cut, have all earned Critics Picks from the New York Times. Her first produced full length The Vigil or The Guided Cradle won the 2010 New York Innovative Theatre Award for Outstanding Full-Length Script. Wild, following its debut in Chicago, premiered in New York last year where the play was nominated for three NY IT Awards. Another Kind of Love, her drama about a family of punk rock singers set in Seattle, has been developed at theaters around the country, most recently at NY Stage and Film, as part of the Lark Play Development Center’s retreat, and will be produced this Spring in Chicago with InFusion Theatre Company. Drunk Art Love, her comedy set in art school, has just become a new web series released online (Vimeo link below). Crystal is at work on her new play Rain and Zoe Save the World, as well as co-writing with award-winning composer Bobby Cronin the book for their musical currently in development (Un)Lucky in Love (Formally Concrete Jungle). She is also thrilled to be a part of the creative team of the musical Mary and Max, based on the film, which will feature Bobby’s music/lyrics, Outer Critics Circle Award-winning Stafford Arima direction, mask design by Joseph Osheroff and puppet design by AchesonWalsh Studio, currently in development this summer.
