    "You created a phenomenal two weeks of fervent artistry at work and then brought it to huge audiences so they could catch the fever. I'm so grateful to have been a part this conference. It fed me as a playwright (beyond gelato) in a way that I don't get as often as I'd like."

    -Jennifer Maisel, Playwright
