In addition to her work with Appleseed, Lynne has a fondness for directing live theatre. Her directorial debut was the world premiere of Mark Troy‘s Paging Dr. Chutzpah at the Sidewalk Studio Theatre in Toluca Lake. This raucous comedy was a big hit, resulting in two extensions before finally closing in March 2008. She went on to direct a staged reading of the feature script she co-wrote, Daybreak, as part of the Bruno Kirby Celebrity Reading Series at The Hayworth Theater, with a cast including Beth Grant, Rex Lee and Mackenzie Phillips. In 2010, while living in Paris, France, Lynne directed several staged readings of Colette Freedman‘s acclaimed play Sister Cities, translated into French by Maëlle Genet as Une ville, une sœur. Back in Los Angeles, she directed the world premiere of Joanclair Richter‘s It’s Good 2 be Crazy, which ran at the Hudson Guild Theatre on Theatre Row in Hollywood in Summer 2011. Most recently, she directed her short play, Can You Hear Me Now? in a program by the same name at the Sherry Theater in the NoHo arts district of Los Angeles.
A proud member of the Los Angeles Female Playwrights Initiative, Lynne wrote her first play in 2011. The 10-minute Can You Hear Me Now? premiered at the Write Act Repertory Theatre’s “Women Inventing Theatre 3 – Connections” program in February 2012. It has since been performed as part of the Old Academy Players Summer One-Act Bonanza in Philadelphia and in a program of one acts entitled “Can You Hear Me Now?” at the Sherry Theater in Los Angeles. Her second 10-minute play, Dog Days, premiered in Philadelphia’s Crack the Glass Theatre Company’s 2013 production of one acts called “4PLAY.”
