Recording a VERY exciting project this month with my pals at Six To Start, a brilliant game developer & entertainment company based in London. As the creators of Zombies, Run! they've kept me busy over the past 2 years, and I can't wait to tackle their new venture.
Also this month: a bit of dubbing at VSI for a great show streaming soon!
Had a blast and learned a lot about motion/performance capture with Richard Dorton and The Mocap Vaults. Such the polar opposite of voiceover... I'll definitely be training more in this fascinating craft.
After recording FLIP & MOZI'S GUIDE TO HOW TO BE AN EARTHLING for Tinkercast/Wondery last year, I was honored to be invited back for another terrific program, WHO, WHEN, WOW! This new series takes kids on an "auditory journey into the lives of unsung heroes, unknown heroines and amazing humans who make us say “WOW!" I play Junko Tabei - the first woman to climb Mt. Everest. As an Everest buff I especially enjoyed recording her story.
This year brought my debut at EAST WEST PLAYERS -- the nation's premiere Asian American theatre. Thrilled for it to be the brilliant Sondheim musical, ASSASSINS. It was such a joy to be back after a TWO YEAR break! Originally scheduled to open in March 2020 but shut down by the pandemic, the team happily reunited to bring this timely piece back to life.
Free Press - "... this imaginative, harrowing, gallows humor-type production marks the triumphant return of one of L.A.’s finest theaters... [with] rabblerouser Emma Goldman (well-played by the droll Kym Miller)."
Los Angeles Times - "...disturbingly timely... this encounter with “Assassins” left me shaken — which is perhaps the highest compliment that can be paid to the show."
Broadway World - "ASSASSINS Shoots to Thrill. ...a winner - visually, musically and across the board... Desai's production is end-to-end joyfulness."
South Pasadenan - "...funny, touching, and deeply relevant... experiencing this show is electrifying and thought provoking."
StageSceneLA - "...ensemble members [in] assorted cameos, most notably Kym Miller’s as anarchist Emma Goldman. ... This one is so good, it could and should go directly to Broadway."
TheatreMania - "...exemplary stagecraft and a committed cast make this a must-see production."
