As a Director
Drew has been fascinated by multidisciplinary, collaborative theater and film – having been opened to this type of work at the National Theater Institute.
Drew most recently directed and co-adapted We Are ROM3 which received nominations for Best Editing and Best Sci-Fi at RED DIRT INTERNATIONAL and will premiere nationally at JOSHUA TREE INTERNATIONAL (California) and internationally at the SHAKESPEARE ON FILM FESTIVAL (Stratford-upon-Avon). He just completed a film adaptation of Troilus & Cressida starring A.C. Stanford & Hilary Schwartz and is in post-production for the short film White Noise shot in Chicago, 2015.
In the summer of 2015, Drew spent time at the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center as an Assistant Director of the National Playwrights Conference and National Music Theatre Conference.
In the summer of 2014, Drew directed unMasqued’s inaugural play, a blugrass/folk staging of Much Ado About Nothing, at the Pieter Performance Space in LA and then re-staged the production for its Midwestern US tour. This play featured live performance on guitars, banjos, drums, violins, cellos, pianos, accordions, and vocals with visual art by Valerie Sharp, original music by Davis Good.
In the spring of 2012, Drew set out to create and establish a theater collective titled Inspired By which provided Oklahoma City artists (actors, directors, writers, designers, musicians, composers, etc.) an environment to come together, collaborate, and be inspired by exploring together in a theatrical way.
In April of 2013, Drew collaborated with the OCU’s School of Visual Art and Out Of The Box to direct a production of Sight Unseen by Donald Margulies in the Norick Art Center’s main studio. This piece also featured work by his team of collaborators; paintings by Valerie Sharp and music by composer Davis Good.
Continuing this exploration of devised theater in the spring of 2012, he brought together three friends to create the piece Love Again for Broadway Fun for Funds, a cabaret-styled benefit performance which raises money for the fight against AIDs.
