Theatre credits include: Rainbows, Tim Doran, composer (Jasmine wrote, directed, and starred in this show, which was produced first in multiple venues in Los Angeles and then off-off Broadway); The Lover-A Tale of Obsessive Love, Ron Barnett, composer (Lonny Chapman Theatre premier). Jasmine wrote two original musicals that premiered in summer 2017, at the Hollywood Fringe Festival: Sybil’s Closet and F**ked Up Fairy Tales. WeHo Times called the song, “Love is Love” Jasmine wrote (With David Anthony, composer) for F**ked Up Fairy Tales “…an incredible song that it merits a place among the classics of musical theatre.” (WeHo Times, July 2, 2017). Jasmine’s new straight play, The Masher—a black comedy feminist revenge play—premiered at the 2019 Hollywood Fringe at Asylum’s Studio C Theatre to sold out houses and received the 2019 The Hollywood Encore! Producers’ Award based on “artistic merit, commercial potential, and developmental possibilities.” Jasmine also directed this production.
