This fall I'll be heading to one of my favorite places : The Arts Center of Coastal Carolina to play Pat in Kinky Boots! Total bucket list show, and so looking forward to working with both Evan Pappas and Eugenio Contenti, our wonderful director and choreographer!
Finally got to accomplish something that's been on my bucket list for a majority of my life - go to Paris!
I spent a much needed week exploring all over the city, and got into a whole lot of Parisian mischief during my time. Truly an unforgettable experience, and definitely have a strong feeling of wanderlust.
Looking forward to seeing what 2020 holds!
Currently enjoying taking in the beautiful Roanoke, Virginia, for Mill Mountain Theatre's production of The Sound of Music this holiday season, and playing everyone's favorite sassy/deadpan nun, Sister Berthe.
Monday I head back to my home-away-from-home, Arts Center of Coastal Carolina to play Greta Ohlsson in Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express! Can't wait to tackle my first murder mystery, and finally get to show off my Swedish accent... and lay on the beach... that too.
I always love the opportunity to work with new writers, especially female-identifying ones, and this summer I had the privilege to work with Jessica Kahkoska. Kahkoska was the resident artist and part of New Works Initiative this summer at Southern Colorado Repertory Theatre.
I was thrilled to read the part of Lea in one of her works, In Her Bones; additionally, I read for Betty in a snippet of The Death of Desert Rose. It was such a great opportunity to work with another female creative this summer, and I so look forward to seeing more of this wonderful playwright's work.
Heading back to Colorado this summer to the ol’ stomping grounds (@scrtheatre) to revisit an old favorite: THE 39 STEPS, this time as Annabella/Pamela/Margaret (having previously done Clown #2!) and playing The Pilot in the one woman show, GROUNDED. Yes you heard that right. A one. woman. show.
A farce where I play SEXY and INTELLIGENT FEMALES, and a one woman show in the same summer? Elated. And terrified. In the best possible way. And yes I’m already memorizing...
25 is lookin’ pretty damn good thus far...
I've never been described as "painfully shy, struggling to be helpful, and pretty much clueless" and I'm obsessed! 🤣!
Only a few more left of this silly show, going to miss my ol' girl Edith...
"The cast keeps us delightfully amused as the difficulties of Elvira’s continuing materialization continue to take a distressing toll on everyone. There is, through it all, a romantic relationship , a murder and some serious skullduggery. It could only be British, and only Coward."

Just a little over two weeks until we begin rehearsals for Blithe Spirit! I'm enjoying the R&R and looking forward to auditioning for the next few weeks here in the city, but I'm really looking forward to returning to Arts Center of Coastal Carolina and working with Russell Treyz on this piece!
Also, Java Burrito is calling my name (it's better than Chipotle!) and the beach.
We closed An American in Paris on NYE and I'm already missing this cast more than I can articulate; such a beautiful, kind, hilarious gaggle of geese, and they made waking up everyday all the better.
I'm officially back in NYC for three weeks, and then off to SC again for Blithe Spirit, also at The Arts Center of Coastal Carolina! This time directed by the lovely Russell Treyz. So looking forward to jumping into my first Coward play!
Holy Moses! Our first review! The audiences here in Hilton Head have absolutely adored the production - you can feel the energy of the room change when some of their favorite songs propel us into the next scene!
"The dancing, choreographed by Elise Kinnon, takes us through jazz dances of earlier times, classical ballet, modern, tap and even a kick line! The song and dance number with Henri is jaw-dropping. Start to finish, the dancing, all of the acrobatics, the energy, the more ups than downs are spot-on."
