J. Deschene (Librettist) is a singer, actress, director, and writer from Boston, Massachusetts. She has sung several of
Gilbert & Sullivan's best loved contralto roles, most notably Lady Jane in Patience, a role she considers her signature.
As a director, she has taken on Pirates of Penzance, Mikado, Patience, Sorcerer, and The Grand Duke, all with the now
defunct MIT Gilbert & Sullivan Players (or MITG&SP). She currently serves as treasurer for MITG&SP's off-campus
continuation, the Savoyards of Boston (savoyardsofboston.com). J. is delighted to revisit this script a decade after the original production and thanks Erin for the fabulous opportunity. She wishes the cast and crew the best of luck and will be cheering them on from up north as she directs Wagner's Das Liebesverbot with the Cambridge Chamber Ensemble
