I started a quarantine movement!


June 07, 2020

This is a crazy time we're living in. Obviously a worldwide pandemic means that safety comes first, but I was understandably upset when Broadway shut down right as the season was ramping up. I was excited for the Tonys and now I feel a little empty without I came up with a way we could all still celebrate! 
The Tony Distancing Challenge was born so we could all dress up and celebrate our love for Broadway in our own way. Throw your own party! Do whatever you feel is right to celebrate.

And please spread the word using the hashtag #WhatIDidForTonys on all social media!

Baby at Old Library Theatre

George Frey Center for Performing Arts

February 21, 2020

I guess you can't keep me away...I took another trip back to Old Library Theatre to join the ensemble in their production of Baby the Musical!

While it was a VERY different musical than Parade or The Full Monty, it was such a blast to work with some of the same folks and some new friends. I had the added challenge of performing the show with a herniated disc, so while I did have to use a cane for my performance...the show must, and did, go on!

I'm part of ITMIT!

The World's Largest Theatrical Database

I'm so excited to be acting as the Research Historian for a brand new theatrical database: Index to Music in Theatre! We will  be cataloging all theatrical pieces that include music.

More news to come with this in the future as we get closer to our official launch!

I won't grow up...but I will go home again!

Cedar Grove High School

February 27, 2020

“All children, except one, grow up.”

I'm so honored to be asked back to my old high school, Cedar Grove High School, to serve as their dramaturg once again for this year's spring musical, Peter Pan: A Musical Adventure! After diving into 1950s Boston in Curtains, this year we get a chance to travel back to London of the early 1900s.

This isn't your typical Mary Martin Peter Pan either...this is the Stiles and Drewe 1996 UK version! I can't wait to dig into a new show and work with such talented students again. To Neverland!

The Full Monty at Old Library Theatre

It was such a blast to return to Old Library Theatre to join their production of The Full Monty! I played Betty and a member of the ensemble.

I loved reuniting with many of my company members from last season's Parade to work on a new show! And made many new friends in the process, of course.

"It's an honor and a joy to be in Show Business!"

It was such a treat going back to where it all started...Cedar Grove High School! I served as Dramaturg for their 2019 Spring Musical, Curtains, and got a chance to connect with a new generation of theatre kids! It was so inspiring to see their passion for the show in an environment that I knew so well. I'm so honored that I was able to be a part of it!

Parade at Old Library Theatre

It was such a pleasure to go back to Atlanta, Georgia once again in Parade
This time in a full production, I was a part of the ensemble of Old Library Theatre's production of Parade. One of my all-time favorite musicals, it was such a treat to jump back into that world with a brand new cast and revisit such a challenging score.

Now You Know: How the Dissolve of the Sondheim/Prince Dynasty Shaped Musical Theatre

I finally performed my thesis, a cabaret/lecture about how the flop of Merrily We Roll Along and subsequent split of Stephen Sondheim and Hal Prince's partnership was actually the best thing that could've happened to their individual careers.
