My next project is a staged reading of Peta Murray’s Keys to the Animal Room at The Beacon Theatre. Directed by Christine Vittorini, it takes a hard look at domestic violence and how the signs of abuse so often go ignored. I play the role of the battered wife, Julie. After our first read thru last night, we talked about how interesting it was that there are so few scripted works by American writers that tackle this delicate subject. As an actor, it is my job to delve wholly into the character and the circumstances surrounding her. It was so hard to let myself go there because the subject matter is so dark, so scary…having no personal experience in physical abuse, I feel like I have a responsibility to those who have suffered and are still suffering.
Performances are scheduled for one weekend only. For more information, go HERE.
The web series I worked on earlier this summer with Pet360 went LIVE today! Check out ALL the episodes of “The Pawffice” HERE! Here is one of our blooper reels! The other actors Joie and Brett were great to work with, but the most professional actor of all was little Noodle. He walked into the office and sat down in front of our director Tim as if to say “I’m ready for my closeup!” Louis (the dog eating the lunch) was a hoot! He patrols the office of Pet360, making sure everyone is where they should be. I asked him to fetch me a coffee on his next round, but he said he couldn’t run personal errands while he was on duty. Busy busy!
Watch all episodes of The Pawffice now!
I’m so excited! The web series I shot with Pet360 is finally going live next week and I can’t wait to see how it turns out! This project was one of the most fun gigs I’ve ever done. We shot 6 episodes and I am in 3 of them. The salad I was eating was pretty tasty, too. We shot that scene a little bit after lunch so I was already full so it was kind of difficult to eat but you know me, I always room for more food, LOL!
My little leading man Noodle stole the show, and my heart! (don’t tell Donut!)
