The New Yorker Magazine wrote that Bixby’s play SOMMERFUGL, directed by Stephen Brackett (director of Broadway’s BE MORE CHILL) and starring Wayne Wilcox (GILMORE GIRLS), “conjured the spirit of Christopher Isherwood, both in its vivid evocation of Europe between the wars and in its characters’ bittersweet yearning for the fullness of life.” His play BLUEPRINT was produced by Tony Award winning producer Arielle Tepper Madover and starred Emmy winner Peter Strauss. GIRL YOU KNOW IT’S TRUE (inspired by the rise and fall of the pop/rock duo Milli Vanilli) was a semi-finalist for the O’Neill Conference, semi-finalist for the Princess Grace Award and was produced in Chicago and Seattle.
