The Mad Ones Lab
Randi was invited to participate in The Mad Ones Lab as a director. The Lab facilitates collaboration with folks around the globe to form teams, who will each create a digital short adaptation of an assigned section of The Mad Ones. Randi is directing a watercolor animation version of the songs In My Dream and Moving on, with vocals by Renan Teodoro, Alexandra Desuze, Jenna Kuerzi, and Sidney Houck. Sound design and film editing by Damien Figueras. The Lab will culminate in a digital showcase at the end of October, in which audiences can watch the full musical, with each section of the show having been created by a different team.
The Mad Ones' story of two girls in a car overcoming their grief has inspired a bestselling cast album, thousands of performance videos, viral fan-art, and over 20 million views.
Lilith and Her Demons
Apartment 20 is currently developing a piece that adapts a collection of poems by Enid Dame for the stage, in a song cycle by the same name. Randi led a six-session developmental lab of this piece with a rotating ensemble, ending in an open lab for the public to come witness our work as a part of Philly Free Fringe 2019. Lilith and Her Demons took shape as a concept album in the 2020 Philadelphia Fringe Festival, and continues its development with Apartment 20.
