Bros Season 2 Ep 2: Smoothie Dreams
Bros Season 2 Ep 3: Smoothie Nightmares
"But bro-ness and bro-dom aside, there is heart and soul at the core of this web series. There are subway kisses (between men!). And feelings. And real, albeit immature, love. And if the trailer is any indication of what the series will be like, Bros may have just mastered girls better than Girls." - Hollywood.com

Wake Up Call, a full length play co-written by myself and Adam Thomas Smith, has a successful two week run in IRT's 3B Development Series.
“The most stellar aspect of Wake Up Call is undoubtedly how well the writing meshes with the chemistry of the actors. Cooper and Adam Thomas Smith’s dialogue so accurately captures the voice of this generation of characters that I felt like I was watching people I knew, worked with, and had gone to school with. Combine that with the truly wonderful performances by the cast and you end up with some of the most natural friendships and relationships I have seen on stage. ” - Theatre is Easy
“WAKE UP CALL, written and directed by Veronica Cooper and Adam Thomas Smith, is a hilarious semi-autobiographical account of the mischief and shenanigans that take place behind the scenes at a hotel on Christmas Eve. You may never look at the staff at a hotel the same way again.” - Broadway World
