Survivor Brooklyn South challenge

This month I competed in Survivor Brooklyn South, hosted by the amazing George Nicolaidis and a crew of astoundingly beautiful Survivor super fans. A teeny tiny part of me didn’t believe I could do it—and that part of me died a gruesome death. It was amazing! I made alliances and strategized and won TWO individual immunity idols and found an idol and played it on my closest remaining ally and made it to FINAL FOUR and George gave me the torch (!!!!) AND I won Fan Favorite! BEST DAY EVER

Players Club flag

I sang "Around The World" from Grey Gardens at The Players this month. I just love the story of Little Edie. While preparing the song for the evening celebrating the return of Broadway, I came to deeply respect her vulnerability and gumption—qualities that are often underappreciated in women. Michael Hicks accompanied me and was outstanding, as well as a lovely dinner date.

Drive-Thru Therapist

Stephani has road rage! And she was a ton of fun to play. Watch her 6-minute episode of The Drive-Thru Therapist.

DDO Artists Agency

I’m THRILLED to announce that I'm being represented by DDO Artists Agency in their On-Camera Division. Gina and Michaela are wonderful to work with. Having a strong team is the best feeling!

Family Band

My mother had a milestone birthday this month and I formed The Family Band with my uncle Randy and cousins Will, Trish, and Wilson, to sing "If You Knew My Story" from the musical Bright Star. It’s a song about a woman who has lived an incredible life and is ready to talk about it, so it seemed particularly fitting for my mother:) Watch our performance.

Care and Feeding

Together Apart raised over $40,000 for The Actors Fund! "Care and Feeding", the mini-musical I wrote with Carl Belfatti, was a joy to work on. I am so grateful to Carl, Ann Harada, Mia Ellis, Kitty Balay, and the incomparable Vivienne Benesch for making the experience and the piece more than I dreamed it could be. Watch the 7 minute musical about 4 moms in quarantine.

Together Apart raised $20,000 for The Actors’ Fund last weekend! Here’s a still from my contribution: “Care and Feeding.”
Music by Carl Belfatti - Book and Lyrics by me - Directed by Vivienne Benesch - Starring Mia Ellis, Ann Harada, Kitty Belay, and me:)

Brij

What is Brij doing?? He is performing the Samuel Beckett tribute in The Actor's Nightmare by Christopher Durang, LIVE on Zoom. I had so much fun directing these amazing kids. We came up with a new style of performance we coined “muppet acting” which requires LOTS of gestures and takes to the camera. They created theater magic in tiny Zoom squares and I’m just bursting with pride!
