Winter 2016


Winter has been busy with lots of auditions and some exciting “in the mix ” moments for various high profile TV and Film projects. Also, involved in shooting 4 more scenes for Nick & Nicky where I play sour puss Barbara. My episode of the fun Real Mommy Confessions aired, watch it here. And my episode of Momsters on ID Discovery was also on the airwaves, click here to view. Next week I will be performing in a reading of We Will Rise by Lori Mannettenick and nicky 4nick and nicky 2nick and nicky wes andersonrachel real mommy

 



Fun Fall!


It has been a busy fall! With tons of auditions, making plans for the next steps for Undercover: The Mary Shanley Story and featuring on a few forthcoming episodes of 2 different web series and a role in a short film.  I also was lucky enough to reprise the role of “Adele” in a fantastic parody of “Hello” made by my friends at Barely Productions. Click here to check out the video and watch the hilarious Behind the Scenes video here. Billboard also listed this as one of the top 5 “Hello” Parodies, read the full article here.  Next week I’ll be reading a role in a fabulous new play written by Morgan Gould as part of the Target Margin Institute for Collaborative Theater Making.  And just for funsies, here is a picture of me on set as Adele. Adele 2015



Undercover: The Mary Shanley Story


I performed my solo show at Under St. Marks August 6, 7, 8 to sold out houses, high acclaim, and resounding positive feedback. Friends and colleagues seemed adamant that Mary’s story is one that needs to be told. We definitely plan to bring the show back for a longer run in NYC and also hopefully do some touring.  A few pictures are below.

I also filmed a tiny but fun role in Future ’38 a feature length indie film starring Betty Gilpin and Nick Westrate.  I also had the extreme pleasure of meeting and working with the legendary Madison Arnold, pictured below.

Winter Fun


2015 was off with a bang ! In January, I had fun shooting the Hanging Tree Parody with The Key of Awesome. Click here to watch the hilarious video.

I also had a great time on set with a film I have been part of since last year, a screwball comedy murder mystery called Nick and Nicky. It was an adventure participating in my first overnight shoot at the gorgeous St. Regis Hotel. Click here to watch the fabulous opening scene of the film.

In February, I was asked to read the lead role in a gorgeous play called All the Better Angels written by the immensely talented Louise Flory. It was a pleasure and a challenge to be able to strech my acting muscles in this brilliant and complex piece. The reading was presented as part of the fantastic MTWorks Newborn Festival of new play readings.

 



Happy Holidaze!


Welp, 2014 was a banner year! I booked 3 co-star roles for major networks, 2 supporting roles in indie films, a spec commercial, a print ad, a few parody videos, a couple Shakespeare for Executive workshops at Columbia Business school, a pilot pitch video and a partridge in a pear tree. I was also excited to receive callbacks for 2 Shakespeare plays, including Beatrice in Much Ado (DREAM ROLE!) and to go on many more television and commercial auditions than ever before. I have also returned to voice lessons and have been singing again, so hoping for some musical theatre action in the near future.  Roll on 2015, let’s keep this momentum going! Wishing you a magical season and hoping all your dreams come true next year.  holiday card 2014
