As you probably know, in addition to being a traditional actress I also have original characters and make videos as them. One of my characters is a Trump supporter named Jake, and I recently made a video about the Coronavirus. The video went viral on Facebook and Twitter (on Twitter because an account found it, thought it was real, and posted it without saying I was an actor). This resulted in many comments and tweets expressing either horror that such a person could "exist" or laughter because they realized it was a parody. See the video below, as well as some of the amazing tweets in response!
Some of you know that in addition to being a professional actor, I'm also an acting coach who specializes in coaching children and young adults. I coached a wonderful bunch of students for their performing arts high school auditions this year, and I love being able to shout their successes from the rooftops. This fall there was a lot of talent and competition for the NYC arts schools. I'm beyond thrilled to report the statistics for this year:
7 STUDENTS ACCEPTED TO LAGUARDIA DRAMA
On June 2 @ 8pm I'll be performing in a reading of Still Life by Anton Dudley, directed by Margarett Perry, at The Cherry Lane Theatre. I will be working with Ms. Perry in July as well, on a show at The Dorset Theater Festival.
I performed in Meghan Dean's play A Two Hander For Three in Studio42's Unproducible Smackdown. My cast mates were the awesome Molly Coogan and Kristen Harlow, and we were directed by the fantastic Erik Pearson.
I also performed in a reading of Believeland by Caroline V. McGraw as part of The Civilians FINDINGS series of new works. Jay Stull directed.
I recurred as the paramedic on ELEMENTARY and had a blast shooting late into the night with the cast and crew. Season 3, Episode 21 "Under My Skin". Photos below!
