From Off-Broadway

Sports agent Liz Rico has money and an elite client roster but a woman in a man’s industry has to fight to stay on top. She’s worked twice as hard to get where she is and wants to take over the agency that she's helped build. Enter Freddie Luna, a high school basketball superstar with a troubled past. If Liz can keep this talented yet volatile young star in line, she just might end up making not only his career, but her own as well. But at what price?


REVIEWS 

“Ms. Coppel’s dialogue is finely honed, her characters drawn with a keen sense of both their forceful drives and inner conflicts.” - The New York Times, Read More

“The play never stumbles, it keeps you gasping with excitement, entertainment value and polish,  introduces a fine  new writer who is going places,  and makes a star out of Karen Pittman.  I was overwhelmed.” - Observer, Read More

King Liz is a welcome addition to the theatrical landscape. Coppel's writing — particularly the self-aggrandizing pitch Liz delivers to the young basketball protégé Freddie Luna — can be razor-sharp, with juicy zingers sprinkled throughout.” TheatreMania, Read More

“Coppel's quick-witted, whip-cracking dialogue...ensure(s) that things always unfold on exactly the time frame they should, without sacrificing tension, suspense, or theatricality along the way.” Talkin' Broadway, Read More
