An Evening with the Egos had its world premiere at the VTC and then moved to an equity production in Chicago - with Maria directing both productions. She also directed and produced the critic’s choice production of David Mamet’s Oleanna (starring Tom Ormeny); the world premieres of American Iliad by Donald Freed, Lee Murphy’s Monkey Grass, and Freed’s The General & The Archbishop. Her latest critically acclaimed productions include directing the play Kimberly Akimbo and co-starring in Taking Care with Tim Sullens. Maria is the Director of the Gobetti-Ormeny Acting Studio, coaches at various major studios, and teaches at the New York Film Academy. She is a member of the Directors’ Guild of America as well as Women In Film, and Maria was the 1992 recipient of Women in Theatre’s Outstanding Achievement In Theatre Award.
