Hi. It's been a minute. How are you all doing?
The last seven months have been at best stressful, and at worst, absolutely horrifying. I could list everything that has been on my mind lately—#blacklivesmatter, please vote, wear a mask, etc—but this isn't the place for it. Instead, I'm going to let you know some of the moments that have brought me joy and come close enough to actual acting to scratch the itch temporarily.
STEADFAST with Clutch Productions
Presented in three parts as part of the EmpowHer reading series, this epic story about the suffragist movement grapples with the deeply embedded racism of the movement, while drawing parallels to the struggle of women (especially BIPOC+ women) today. I played Pepper, a spunky "rich girl" who sees her privilege as a stepladder to doing more for those who have less.
Fourteen by Alice Gerstenberg with Metropolitan Playhouse
A society grand dame, her eligible daughter, and their unflappable butler prepare for a dinner for fourteen. But when one guest cancels, leaving a table of unlucky thirteen, the game is afoot! A comedy of extreme disproportion.
Bertha: The Sewing Machine Girl with Metropolitan Playhouse
This 1906 American melodrama is weird and wild and wonderful. I play Lizette, the conniving and heartbroken "friend" of Bertha, whose plotting goes right and then VERY wrong.
A Star Wars Christmas Carol for Branford Parks & Rec
Exactly what it sounds like: a parody of a galaxy far, far away meets A Christmas Carol. You can still see it here.
