History and Press
Crafted from the pages of Jessica Hendy's memoir, Walking With Bubbles had its theatrical debut in March of 2021 in Brooklyn, NY, at the Irondale Theatre’s “On Woman” festival. Beginning as a one-act play with music, Walking With Bubbles was the festival’s grand finale production and received critical acclaim.
Following the festival and wanting to elevate the storytelling, Jessica partnered with Jonathan Larson Grant finalist, Brianna Kothari Barnes, to create an original score for her script.
Enter: Walking With Bubbles, a new musical.
In April of 2022, Brianna and Jessica traveled to Ohio for a week-long incubation workshop at their Alma-Mater, CCM, with director Richard Hess. This was in preparation for the first New York City industry reading that happened on May 19th, 2022, at Open Jar Studios.
Tom and Michael D’Angora attended that reading and were inspired to help Jessica and Brianna get Walking With Bubbles to the next stage of development.
In September of 2022, the team took Walking With Bubbles to the Forestburgh Playhouse for their “In The Works ~ In The Woods” festival, headed by artistic director Matt Lenz.
