Hi, I'm Morgan! I'm a twenty-something theater critic and writer (which really just means I've been a Theater Kid my whole life but now I'm an adult) based somewhere between Baltimore and Washington DC. 

Hopefully, I can help you discover a new show or the next song that will be stuck in your head for weeks on end.

I've been a theater writer since 2016, and I'm so excited to share my passion for the arts with you! Happy reading!

Welcome to Intermission!

News: Disney Announces Adaptation of “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” Is In The Works

Although the cast has not yet been revealed, Disney has announced they are working on a film adaptation of “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.” According to The Hollywood Reporter, Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich (the producing team behind the 2019 live-action “Aladdin” reboot) will produce alongside Ryan Halprin, who will serve as executive producer.

“The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” tells the story of seven socially awkward children as they compete in a regional spelling, and the lessons of joy, humor, and heartache they learn along the way.
