Sorry for dangling you for so long about this next project, but I can finally announce that I’m joining the cast of CAMILLE CLAUDEL at Signature Theatre.Camille Claudel

This stunning new musical by Frank Wildhorn and Nan Knighton tells the story of visionary 19th Century sculptor Camille Claudel, a fiercely talented and independent woman whose work was often overshadowed by her famous mentor and lover, Auguste Rodin. The production will be directed by Eric Schaeffer, and the cast is led by Broadway’s Teal Wicks and Hugh Panaro. I’ll be portraying Madame Claudel, Camille’s repressive mother.

CAMILLE CLAUDEL runs March 24-April 19 in Signature’s Max Theatre. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit Signature’s website.

Nominated!

The 2020 Helen Hayes Awards nominations are out and I’m thrilled to be tapped this year for my performance in Olney Theatre’s production of CABARET!helen-hayes-award31

Named for actor Helen Hayes – a Washington native and legendary First Lady of the American Theatre – the Helen Hayes Awards has honored excellence in professional theatre throughout the Washington region for more than three decades.

This is my 14th Helen Hayes nomination and I’m proud to be included in the group of stellar actresses nominated in the 2020 Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Musical (Hayes division) category. I’m equally excited that CABARET received a total of nine nominations, including nods for its direction, choreography, music direction, set design, sound design, lighting design, and for our Emcee, Mason Alexander Park, as well as for Outstanding Musical.

For a full list of nominees, check the Theatre Washington website. The Helen Hayes Awards gala takes place Monday, May 18th, at The Anthem in Washington, DC. Win or lose, I’m looking forward to a smashing night honoring the best in DC professional theatre!
