As reported last week, the first Hollywood Fringe Festival is in full swing.  This week, Once More, With Feeling, a play by New York-based playwright Christina Cigala makes its West Coast debut.

It’s a play-within-a-play about a woman’s quest to find her voice–and finish her script.

“I first read the play last year when it was just a first draft, but even then I knew it was something I wanted to produce,” says Laura Youngkin (Theater MFA 10), who is also performing in the play.  “When I heard about the Hollywood Fringe, I knew we’d be a perfect fit.”  The show marks Youngkin’s first foray in producing and acting in Los Angeles.


It all started on the Subway… a feverish one-act written after a messy breakup. Then the playwright heard an urban legend about a snake and its owner, and everything came together. Somehow, these stories seem congruent. The snake begins to stretch, and so do the limits of this relationship. A story about the devourer and the devouree’. Who will eat whom first?
