Judyth Piazza chats with Marla Mase, Writer/Performer/ Producer/Singer/ Songwriter
Marla Mase is a writer/performer/producer/singer/songwriter from NYC. She has written and continues to write plays, monologues, poems, solo performance pieces, erotica, blogs and songs, which have been performed (by her and other actors) around the city. Her most recent show, A Brief Night Out (BNO), is a kick-ass rock-n- roll musical that is fast becoming an underground sensation. The CD soundtrack of the show co-produced and co-written with Tomas Doncker is viraling its way through cyberspace and is getting downloaded daily. BNO has been workshopped at The Duplex, The Barrow Street Theatre, The Delancey Bar and The Laurie Beechman Theatre and is currently looking for a permanent home to live in.
Marla`s play, The Canarsie Line directed by Kathryn Rossetter, ran at The Bank Street Theatre to sold out audiences in 2002 and was invited to the Edinburgh Theatre Festival. Her play Man/Woman was workshopped at the Abingdon Theatre in 2004 and is in the process of being developed through these Brief Nights Out (BNO is the shorter version of the full play.)
Marla`s second CD, Speak, is scheduled to be released in Spring of 2011 and is already underway.
She is also a regular performer in Carolyn Kitay`s Variety Show, Kitay Kitay and the Wonderfuls and she is often asked to perform her songs and her spoken word bits at benefits, mixers, and clubs. Marla has her MA in writing and performance from NYU, is a member of the Phi Beta Kappa Society and is the owner of PARTYpoopers.com and partySWANK.com where she has produced over 2500 events these past 18 years.
Most importantly, she is mother to two beautiful souls. She is grateful for her life.
