A Brooklynite since 2001, Lucie was raised in France and Switzerland. Specializing in new work, Lucie spent 15 years developing and directing new plays in New York City and all over the country. She directed World Premieres at LaJolla Playhouse, CATF, Second Stage, Rattlestick Theater, Arena Stage, Hartford Stage, Kansas City Rep, Manhattan Class Company and more. As a translator and adapter, Lucie’s work has been produced in Paris and in New York. Bringing free theater and the works of Molière to Brooklyn was a long time dream which she is thrilled has become a reality.


In 2021, she was awarded the prestigious designation of chevalier de l’ordre des Arts et des Lettres, by the French Government.

An independent feature film Writer and Producer, and a theater Producer and Production Manager, Garth was raised in the Bronx but has called Brooklyn home for more than 15 years. His films, which include Whiteboys and Jails Hospitals & Hip-Hop, have been distributed by media companies such as 20th Century Fox, Fox Searchlight, Studio Canal Plus, Samuel Goldwyn Classics, STARZ Entertainment, and HBO. His theater works have been presented in houses like the Kennedy Center, Sydney Opera House and International Theater Festival of Havana. Garth is excited and honored to be a part of bringing Molière and the funny, biting, brilliant social commentary of his work, to Brooklyn and all of NYC annually.

A native New Yorker, Emma is proud to have been raised in Prospect Heights by parents who instilled a love of theater and the arts from a young age. She graduated in December 2021 from the State University of New York at New Paltz where she studied Digital Media Production and International Relations. She is passionate about communications and has had the privilege of working in a variety positions through her college career and post-graduation, including as Staff Writer at the New Paltz Oracle and at the Legislative Gazette, and as a Communications Intern and later a consultant Communications Officer for an IGO. She is excited to return to her roots and have the opportunity to work with Molière in the Park to bring high-quality, free theater to New Yorkers.
