CalendarHello and welcome to, a space for shameless self-promotion. I intend to use this blog for sharing news about my work and – less often – my thoughts about the latest news in theatre, higher education, and related topics.

For now, I’m lining up bookings for guest lectures and other speaking engagements in the coming year. Places you can hear me talk about Playing God in 2016 include New York’s Drama Book Shop (March), the University of Washington’s Simpson Humanities Center (May), and the Mellon School of Theatre and Performance Research at Harvard (June). Your conference, school, bookstore, theatre, synagogue, church, or sewing circle could be on the list, too. For inquiries, please use one of the many “Book Henry” buttons scattered thoughtfully around the site, or just email me at
