Christina's play How to Catch Creation received multiple nominations for dynamic productions across the country: a Jeff award nomination; 2 Barrymore nominations; and 5 Black Theatre Alliance Awards Chicago nominations! 

Read Regina Victor's Windy City Times review for the Goodman production. 

Grab a copy of Christina's drama Blacktop Sky published by Samuel French. Described as searing, unnerving, and compassionate. This play is great and timely for scene work and productions--particularly for college campuses. 

In a recent review for the 2017 Magnum Awards, Christina's photography was described as "compelling," "strong," and "poignant." Check out some of her work on Instagram.

IN THE PRESS

"Every so often there comes a show that's perfect in its execution. MAN in LOVE is that show.... [Anderson's] word play is captivating..."

"PEN/MAN/SHIP is a marvelous piece of writing. ... Touching on questions of criminality, imprisonment, freedom, and self-determination, this play changed the way I look at this country.... "

"Now and then you encounter a show so unique and utterly compelling that it defies comparison to any dramatic work that came before. That's the case with Christina Anderson's MAN in LOVE..."
