WAR PAINT to close December 30th

All good things must come to an end, and that means WAR PAINT, too. Our final performance will be Saturday evening, December 30th, so if you’ve been on the fence about seeing this amazing production, DO NOT WAIT – GET YOUR TICKETS NOW!

I have been so privileged to be part of this show, and so fortunate to have gone on in the role of Helena Rubinstein seven times. Getting the final bow in an extraordinary Broadway hit was both thrilling and humbling, and to share the stage with luminaries like Christine Ebersole, John Dossett and Douglas Sills was the experience of a lifetime. (And I did get to perform with Patti LuPone as well – I’ve been on three times in the role of Magda, Rubinstein’s assistant, and Patti could not have been more welcoming or encouraging.)

For more information and to purchase tickets, visit the official WAR PAINT website. But DON’T WAIT – I expect the balance of this run to sell out fast.


Washington Post “Broadway Understudies” article

In case you missed it, I was featured in a recent Washington Post article about Broadway understudies, complete with fabulous photos by Jennifer S. Altman.

It was great fun to lunch at Joe Allen with the Post’s Peter Marks and talk at length about the trials and rewards of the understudy life. The article will run in the Sunday 8/13/17 print edition and can be viewed online here:  When LuPone and Midler get sick? The show must go on, and so must the sub.

ON THE TOWN – coming up Summer 2018!

Looking ahead (far ahead), I’m delighted to announce that I’ll be appearing in Olney Theatre Center’s Summer 2018 production of ON THE TOWN, opening June 20th. It’ll be a  fast-change tour de force for me, since I’ll be appearing in multiple roles. For tickets and more information, visit the OTC website.
