Judy’s work has been performed in hundreds of venues including on Broadway and in New York’s Town Hall, Lincoln Center, Celebrate Brooklyn, and Playwrights Horizons, as well as London’s Hackney Empire and Barbican, D.C.’s Kennedy Center, Los Angeles’s Royce Hall and Ace Theater (through the Center for the Art of Performance), Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theatre, the Sydney Opera House, The Melbourne Festival (Forum Theater), Stockholm’s Sodra Theatern, the Spoleto Festival, and San Francisco’s Curran Theater and MOMA. More>>

Scott Malia is an Associate Professor of Theatre who specializes in GLBTQIA Theatre, Comedy, Television, and Italian Theatre.  His book, Giorgio Strehler Directs Carlo Goldoni was published by Lexington Books in 2013.  Other articles and writings have appeared in Theatre Journal and New England Theatre Journal.  His play, The Interview, was performed as part of the Boston Theatre Marathon in 2009 and published by Smith & Krauss.  The play was also performed in Ireland as part of the Cork Theatre’s 10x10 Festival in 2013. 

Initially funded by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Arts Transcending Borders (ATB) at the College of the Holy Cross is an initiative designed to enhance the role of the arts in every aspect of the Holy Cross experience by infusing the arts into students’ academic lives and creating new opportunities throughout the curriculum and the community to cross cultural, geographic, and disciplinary boundaries. In tandem, ATB sponsors dynamic public programs throughout the year, ranging from lectures by renowned scholars and artists, to unique performances, exhibitions, and installations. 

This event is funded in part by the Expeditions program of the New England Foundation for the Arts, made possible with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, with additional support from the six New England state arts agencies.
