A sharing. A letting go. A passing of stories.
AN EXPERIENTIAL THEATRE PERFORMANCE BY MIRIAM WASMUND & COMPANY
Developed by writer and performer Miriam Wasmund, Your Faithful Reader merges the worlds of acting and dance with real letters.
Interested participants were mailed writing prompts—suggestions of letters they may want to write: to others (known and unknown), to themselves, to their most beloved objects, or even the intangible.
The response was pages of heartfelt words, ranging from the romantic and fun to the most honest and brutal truths.
Now a company of actors, dancers, and creatives have given the letters (both anonymous and signed) new life in Your Faithful Reader.

Miriam Wasmund is an Alvin Ailey trained dancer living and creating work in NYC since 2001. She has had the great fortune to work with many inspiring choreographers and travel with dance which ultimately lead her to find her love for movement, creating and community as a choreographer and producer. Miriam is the Senior Artistic Director of DreamStreet Theater Company, a not-for-profit performance company for adults living with disabilities. As well she also works in fitness as a Personal Trainer and a Group Coach and knows how important it is for us to live in our bodies, cultivate our passions and find wellness in sharing our spirit to its fullest. She is beyond grateful to her cast , contributors and long time supporters who have been by her side in all the good and all the struggle, and would like to say a very special thank you to Britton and Melena Fisher for the seed of opportunity to find herself in this again.
thank you to our writers
While we believe that art should be free and accessible, we also know there is a lot that goes into creating the best show possible—from rehearsal space rental to final production costs and so much more.
Your charitable contribution will not only help us make Your Faithful Reader the best it can be, but it will also help leverage additional expenses.
Please consider donating to our GoFundMe campaign in any capacity that you feel is appropriate. All donors will be thanked both here, on our website, as well as the show's program.
We greatly appreciate your generosity!
