I am proud to announce the launch of a new arts collective – HUMANITY PLAY PROJECT. For our inaugural event on Mon Jan 18, we explored the aftermath of the Charleston, SC tragedy in a curated evening of dance, poetry, song and theatre. We joined together to honor those who were lost – to question why it happened – and to offer a forum for community dialogue. #BLACKLIVESMATTER
What an evening! Still processing the love, the artistry, the community we shared in West Los Angeles this evening. So grateful for this experience. To behold a multi-generational, multi-racial, multi-gender dialogue was extraordinary. And on MLK Day! I am hopeful. I am inspired. I am ready to #DoSomething.
Thank you to our sponsor: West LA United Methodist Church.
Thank you to a fabulous group of actors, crew, and audience members for making the 2015 season of Trippingly on the Tongue awesome. We will be back in 2016 for more “Seriously Funny Shakespeare” and playbook-style improvisation. Huzzah!
Feeling honored and grateful to be part of the THIS IS NOT A TAN community. Last night, we had an amazing performance of BLACK HISTORY MONTH in front of a full house at iO West. Still feeling the buzz! Thank you to our amazing leader and writer, Charity L. Miller. #HOTEP #thisisnotatan #sketch #comedy
“Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.”
– Lord Alfred Tennyson, 1850
Thank you for being a part of my year. From stage to screen, and everything in between, you have been a part of my community. For that I am grateful.
What a year! My nephews Henry (left) and Cal (far right) made their world debuts. My 3-year-old niece Barrett (in green) grew into a walking, singing, dancing delight. Visits to Berkeley and Brooklyn were highlights for sure.
On the career side of things, I formed my LLC and filmed “Topanga Rose” (now in post production). Performing and teaching Shakespeare kept me busy and happy. I had the pleasure of playing Adriana in “The Comedy of Errors” and Margaret in “Much Ado About Nothing” (the latter earned me my equity card!). And the world of comedy continues to treat me well thanks to my extended family at The Second City, iO West and The Groundlings.
Coming up: save the date for Monday January 12. I will perform at UCB Sunset for the first time with “This is Not a Tan” before we return to The Second City for a four-month run.
Wishing you happiness, health and adventure in 2015 and beyond.
