"A Star Has Burnt My Eye," Howard's music theater meditation on the life and work of Connie Converse, is out on tour in December, with shows at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY; at the Vermont Arts Exchange in Bennington, VT; and at Castleton (VT) University. 

This brand new iteration of the show is once again directed by Paul Lazar (who directed the world premiere at BAM in 2016), and features Howard performing with fellow musicians Dina Maccabee, Charlotte Mundy, and Osei Essed.
