McCarter Theatre

I will be a panelist after a play at Princeton.


McCarter Theatre.
Hoodwinked is a riveting exploration of Islamist extremism sparked by the 2009 mass shooting on the Army base in Fort Hood, Texas. Created by the multi-award-winning playwright, Emily Mann (McCarter Theatre Artistic Director), the play asks us: how do we make sense of the questions, confusion, and misinformation surrounding one of the most pressing issues of our time, namely global Jihadism.     
Be a part of the conversation: join us immediately following each intimately-staged presentation for moderated discussions with Emily Mann and expert panelists, who will engage with the play’s themes, debate cultural shifts in the Middle East, Europe, Africa, and America; address current public policy; and answer audience questions about the crisis gripping our world.

A Busy Church Month

In January 2016, I was blessed to be invited to share the pulpit at two Collegiate churches in New York City.

The first was Marble Collegiate Church, as part of their annual Trialogue amongst the Abrahamic traditions.
