New Single! "Three First Names"

I just released my debut single, “Three First Names”! Inspired by a night out with friends, where I ran into an old high school acquaintance, this song is an electric guitar filled indie pop bop that confronts the version of myself that I’d like people to think I am with my true self.

Grappling with her online versus off-line personas, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist HaleyJane Rose.... paints a vividly sly portrait of herself. “Three First Names,” decorated with dry humor and driving angst ... illustrates “the contrast of what we put forward and what we choose to show about our lives versus the unedited reality,” she says of the song, which fuses a plainspoken theatricality (from her studies at Marymount Manhattan College) with traditional folk music.

Romeo & Juliet Fight Choreography

I have the pleasure of working with The Friends of Muscoot Farm as their fight choreographer for “Romeo and Juliet”, as a part of the Shakespeare on the Farm series - directed by Mary Roberts. It was so fun to create four unique fight sequences for this play! Here is a clip of Tybalt v. Romeo - this was the actors very first run through the fight! The play will be performed in Katonah, NY at Muscoot Farms.

I am currently working on M&M Productions’ upcoming play, “I Hate Hamlet”, as the fight director. This is such a funny play with an equally comedic and slapstick rapier fight scene. The play goes up February 10, 2018 – March 4, 2018 at Lyndhurst Mansion in Tarrytown, NY.
