An American playwright, librettist, and lyricist, Marian’s works have been performed in venues around the country.

She enjoys exploring characters from history, scripture, and folklore, inviting the audience to see an ancient tale with a fresh perspective.

Through her creative projects, she celebrates the courage and ingenuity of women throughout the ages.


The gofundme campaign for our song cycle, Mother’s Word, is live! Please consider making a donation to our production expenses so all proceeds from our performances Sept 23 and 24 can go directly to LCPC’s Parent Ed Scholarship Fund!

The three-movement piece that I wrote with composer Christina Whitten Thomas for VOX Femina Los Angeles (awarded a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts) premiered April 23 at Zipper Concert Hall in downtown L.A.

I was recently featured in ShoutOut LA. Thank you to my good friend and collaborator, Christina Whitten Thomas, for nominating me.
