Sightings: Danielle Karliner (updated)

Danielle spent six years as Managing Director for City Theatre, producer of the venerable Summer Shorts Festival. In 2007, she went back to NYC to pursue a degree at Columbia University, and new career opportunities.

She's been active in theatre since then, working with the Atlantic Theatre Company, Jujamcyn Theater, and worked on the Summer Play Festival 2009.

And now she's producing a play for the NY Fringe Festival.

Keep up the good work, Danielle!

UPDATE September 2, 2009: The Fringe Festival has ended: how did Danielle's show fare? Well, The New York Times gave it three out of five stars:
Though its many threads pull together convincingly at the end, the play—which could be a half hour shorter without losing anything important—occasionally sags under the weight of its ambitions. Still, Ether Steeds showcases the work of a promising playwright, in a theater well-favored with good AC and comfortable seats.
We'll call that a win!
