Cheri Magid is currently writing a scripted podcast, The Classics, which will star Sarah Jessica Parker, for Audible UK. Her film/play A Poem and a Mistake was presented by Australian Centre for Contemporary Art in Melbourne, featured in the BBC Radio 4 podcast Modern Metamorphoses, and was performed live as a theatre piece at Delaware Rep. The Sydney Morning Herald says of A Poem and a Mistake, “You’ll never think of classical literature again without these women coming into your head.” Cheri’s music-theatre performance piece Penelope and the Geese, composed by Milica Paranosic, was performed at The Museum of Asian Art in Corfu, Greece and aired on Autogram, Radio Belgrade 2 in Belgrade, Serbia. Cheri’s plays have been seen at Primary Stages, New Georges, The New Group, The Women’s Project, Rattlestick, South Coast Rep, People’s Light and Theatre Company, The Road Theatre Company and Cincinnati Playhouse among others. She also wrote for the Emmy-award-winning children’s television show Arthur and is an Assistant Arts Professor in Dramatic Writing at New York University.
