It always amazes me how fast the rehearsal process flies by. "Fastened to the Moon" opens this Thursday, September 15th and runs through October 1st. Get your tickets here!
I am very very excited to share that I'll be playing the lead role of Katherine in a play I've been part of since its start - "Fastened to the Moon" by Linda Kampley. It is a seriocomic piece that tells the story of how a young woman copes with trauma. There are astronauts, sheriffs, and ne'er do well husband.
It's being produced by the American Renaissance Theater Company and goes up mid September. Details to come!
What can I say? It was time for a change.
I just chopped by hair off again to a pixie-ish cut (thanks Crops for Girls!) and got new shots with the lovely and super easy to work with Nick Wheelehon.
Here are some of my favorite outtakes - look out for the new final photos soon!
Happy to share that the filmed version of "Father Daughter Dance", a hard-hitting short play I did with the wonderful folks of Theatre Revolution, made it into its first festival! Catch it at the Peeksill Film Festival on Saturday, June 25th during Block B from 2-4 PM.
Tickets are on sale and going fast for the "Free and Fair Playwright Festival"! The show is June 3rd, 4th, and 5th at the Depot Theater in Garrison, NY. More info and tickets here.
Excited to share that I'll be performing in a short play in June with the amazing folks at Theatre Revolution. "Free and Fair Playwright Festival" will tackle voter suppression with a tongue-in-cheek approach. I'll be playing Carol, a frustrated high school history teacher. More details soon!
I had perhaps one of the coolest first rehearsals ever for a project last night - we spent it at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
The project, and NYU thesis film called "Leave Your Toys", depicts the fraught relationship of a man (Stephen) with his aging Holocaust survivor mother (Marika), and her desire to share her story with her young grandson (Peter). I play the mother to Peter and wife to Stephen, and my presence as a Christian woman adds more tension to the piece. The script is beautiful and moving - made even more so because it is based on the real experiences of the writer/director, Sam Barnett.
Back to rehearsal at the MET - Sam wanted to give us a unique way to bond and connect as a "family". We walked through the halls, chatting as ourselves, then sat and read through part of the script. It was wonderful.
