SAMUEL FRENCH OFF OFF BROADWAY SHORT PLAY FESTIVAL

Keenan will be directing Round by playwright Johnny G. Lloyd for the Samuel French Off Off Broadway Short Play Festival.

Branden: in his 20s, black, queer. Seth: athletic jock, white, gay, and looking for no strings attached. It's the perfect match...made online. Playwright Johnny G. Lloyd explores how the racism of everyday queer life comes in the bedroom in his work, Round.

Take your next date to the #OOBFestival to see Round on Tuesday, 8/20 at 8:30pm.

MOBY DICK: A MUSICAL RECKONING A.R.T

Keenan will be joining the creative team of Moby Dick by Dave Malloy, under the direction of Rachel Chavkin. Keenan will be acting as Second Assistant Director. 

From the creative team behind A.R.T.’s 2015 production of Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812 comes an epic musical adaptation of Herman Melville’s iconic American novel. As the egomaniacal Captain Ahab drives his crew across the seas in pursuit of the great white whale, Melville’s nineteenth-century vision of America collides head-on with the present.
