A Regular Rejoin with Project Theater's Monthly Show 'Our Bar'
After years away to pursue an MFA and regaining my sealegs I'm very grateful for the ability to say I've rejoined Project Theater's monthly show of new work as a regular cast member.
Described as: "New York's finest theater artists to build roughly ten scenes that could legitimately happen in that bar, that night. Audience members grab a drink, find a seat and watch the stories unfold. With no “fourth wall,” OUR BAR is often described as a month’s worth of bar antics artfully shoved into one hour, and like any great night out on the town, each show is unique. As original theater for each thematic evening, the material you see at Our Bar lives and dies in one night."

BABY'S FIRST CAROL CHURCHILL AND SINGING
In the Fall of 2016 I'll be preforming the roleJoan in Carol Churchill's controversial playVinegar Tom. The play explores the gender biases of the 1670's and indirectly their application to today's society. Joan is based on Emilia Clarke, who was tried for witchcraft in 1654 and accused of having a familiar in her cat, Vinegar Tom. This will be my second journey with directorDaniella Caggiano and as per usual she has some exciting twists on the scripted word that you won't want to miss!
