Challenge: The Farm Theater Batting Cage

I signed up for The Farm Theater’s Batting Cages which is challenging people to create a piece upon receiving a curveball of inspiration via email.

I am absolutely thrilled to be cast in Henry V at The Gallery Players in Brooklyn directed by Padraic Lillis, a LAByrinth Theater Company member and the Artistic Director of The Farm Theater.  I’m a huge fan of Padraic’s so it’s exciting to get to do a show with him.

I will be performing as Hostess (Mistress Quickly from Henry IV part 2) and Queen Isabel of France. I am so excited to be in…

Staged Reading: Tales from the Lonely Mean

Staged Reading: Tales from the Lonely Mean

I had a blast last week performing in a staged reading with an old friend from UNCGreensboro, Kirk White and a new friend and fellow alumni, Frannie Civitano. We read six short plays written by Kirk to a supportive and enthusiastic audience in South Orange, NJ. The material is challenging and thought provoking, while still eliciting laughter from the audience.

#Forest Whitaker is a stunning and skillful talent, but after listening to him at the #sagfoundation screening, I am freaking inspired! So eloquent in speaking about Mandela, life, and share his humanity and craft. Also super useful to hear some of the different tools he employs when he is creating a character. Pretty sure I heard some #MichaelChekhov techinque in there….:)

So 598 years ago a King led his troops to battle on St. Crispin’s Day; about two hundred years later a playwright wrote the words that would seal the event into literary and cultural history; 24 years ago an actor and director added his name to the moment in history. Enjoy!

Bryan Cranston’s Advice to Aspiring Actors (by Oscars)

Because this man says it sooo well…his speech to the press after the sag award last year is pretty amazing too.

If I were in California you know I would make it to see Ron Cephas Jones in Prometheus Bound. That man is amazing.

Often by accident I am reminded of how each small decision can propel you to a new opportunity as long as you are open to it.

September

September …..a new blog post….http://wp.me/p3PLlA-6s

I’m not sure whether it is because of the unseasonably moderate and maybe even cool August that we have had in NYC but I have heard loads of complaints about the arrival of September. Perhaps I live in such a populous city inevitably someone will always…

Not exactly related, but goofs are lessons. My twitter account went for a posting ride when I imported my tumblr into a website. Two years worth of random postings in five minutes. Usually more tech savvy but sometimes the extra automation wins the day and leaves me deleting tweet after tweet with a sad little blushing face.
