Somewhere in the early stages of Unboxed Voices I learned something very important: If I title something "1st annual ..." I will inevitably have no choice but to follow through with a 2nd and 3rd and so forth. And so UV has successfully put on this past March our 3rd Annual Variety Show. Now we find ourselves in preparation for our 2nd Annual Short Play Festival, which like many UV fruitions was born from a conversation on some New York City sidewalk that probably went something like this:
"Yeah. Plays. You?"
"Ya, me too. Plays. But I've never had them up or anything. You?"
"No....do you want to?
"Sure, but there's a lot of competition. I just want it performed. Not judged."
Now here we are in our 2nd year with TWICE the fun ahead. Last year we performed for 2 nights at one of our favorite performances spaces, the 45-seat theater Stage Left Studio, with 5 playwrights, 6 plays, and 15 actors. This year we will be hosting 4 nights of performances, featuring 13 plays, from 14 playwrights, with 35 actors at the legendary East Village 99-seat theaterThe Kraine. It's momentum we can't stop!
More information to come. We look forward to seeing you there!

Rose began performing in the 1980's when a corporate take-over forced her out of a job. "I wanted to show that older women still have a lot to offer." Since then she has done her stand-up routines and storytelling at many performance centers in and around New York City. She has been heard on public and pirate radio and seen on cable T.V. Stage appearances include "La Miseria" with Penny Arcade at P.S. 122.
Rose joined the UV talent line up in our first year at Linger Cafe, where she read "La Vecchia," which is included in UV's anthology. She made her way to UV through her writing instructor, author Mitch Levenberg, at St. Francis College in Brooklyn. Most recently, Rose returned to perform stand-up at our 3rd Annual Variety Show where she rocked the house! (Watch here.) Rose will be returning this May 13th to share some more of her stories.
Rose is accepting invitations to tell stories and perform stand-up. She can be reached at
