DU BOIS: A Man For All Times, which features Brian Richardson as Dr. Du Bois.  This play has toured internationally and in Colleges and Libraries around the USA to very high critical acclaim.    As a director, Alexa is very much acting and motion oriented, and believes the audience MUST be entertained and absorbed by the work.  She loves teaching on the College level, and  acting when she get the chance!
