The Book Signing

I got to kill Scott Cohen in the short film “The Book Signing,” based on a fictional story by renowned newspaperman Pete Hamill. We were on location in a library and I could have lost myself in those stacks for hours:)

Little Lord 2023 Workshop

I spent an exhilarating week with Little Lord at the Mercury Store, building a new show about fears and humiliation (among other things 😳). I love these nutballs and I'm proud to count myself among them.

OCTOBER 2023

Something Wild and Unruly

It’s official! My one woman show Something Wild and Unruly is on December 19th at 7pm at Pangea in the East Village. I LOVE this image that Taylor McGee designed! "Join Meg at the worst moment of her life: the night her teenage daughter doesn’t come home. As she figures out the Where, she also figures out the Why. After all, she comes from a long line of women who knew when it was time to flee… and did. In Something Wild and Unruly, Meg's hilarious and poignant family stories and fears about raising a daughter in New York City are interspersed with songs about rebellion, motherhood, and love.”

The Plinth

Mrs. Pat and George Bernard Shaw dancing

I had the honor of playing Mrs. Pat in Galatea 2.0, written by Sophie Dushko, directed by C.C. Kellogg, and starring Isabel Mar, Violet Savage, and Vince Santvoord at Brooklyn Art Haus. This play is extraordinary. This team is pitch perfect in every way. And this is just the beginning!

Then we all headed to Bath, Maine to rehearse Galatea 2.0, directed by C.C. and written by Sophie, with Isabel Mar and Violet Savage and Vince Santvoord (not pictured). I love this play so very much. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world to be working on this text with these people.

One Winged Dove

Matt Gasda is writing up a storm and I've been in two readings of his new work this month: Salt and One Winged Dove. Both readings were at his space Brooklyn Center for Theater Research, which is becoming a lovely clubhouse for theater folk in Greenpoint.

Competitive Events

I played in a one day Survivor game hosted by Competitive Events and and… drum roll… I WON! Crazy times. I’m still processing it all. I’m so grateful to have met and played with this group of strategic and social powerhouses. I believed deep down that I could do it, but now I know:)

Little Lord Clown

Michael Levinton and the marvelous group at Little Lord invited me to The Mercury Store to help build their next show. We spent a week exploring Tupperware, transparencies, Supermarket Sweep, and humiliation.🤡

MARCH 2023

Malt & Mold

Jessica and I did our first LIVE RECORDING of our podcast Desperately Seeking the '80s at Malt and Mold’s beer garden at 21st Street and 2nd Avenue. We had a blast and all our BFFs did too! To the first of many:)

Minotaur Dramatis Personae

Our run of Dover by Matthew Gasda starring me, Izabel Mar, and George Olesky is going strong. The show is evolving beautifully. AND Dimes Square and Other Plays by Matthew Gasda is available on Amazon and includes Minotaur, which we premiered last summer. I love working with these people.

Improbable Stage is developing a new piece about gathering. I loved meeting and playing with a whole new group of performers during their weekend workshop.

JANUARY 2023

Dover

Hitting the ground running in 2023! George Olesky, Izabel Mar, and I are doing an extended run of Dover by Mathew Gasda. We’ve performed in loft spaces across the city to sold-out houses. The show keeps building and growing. I’m very proud of the work we’re doing.

DECEMBER 2022

Dover Rehearsal

Matthew Gasda asked me and Izzy Mar and George Olesky to perform his play Dover… in 10 days. And we freakin’ did it. It was wonderful - don’t be fooled by the photo - and we’re doing it again in January!

Or Something

I played a tiny role in Mary Neely’s new film Or Something. Everyone on set was lovely. They look exhausted here, but that’s because they were working so hard. Can’t wait to see it!

NOVEMBER 2022

Cabaret Feedback

I did something very scary. I invited my most trusted colleagues to the workshop of my one woman show: Something Wild and Unruly. I’m so grateful for their super valuable feedback and the guidance of Sharone Halevy (Director), Michael Hicks (Musical Director), and Kate Mulley (Dramaturg). Watch this space.

My Mother Is

I played a deeply narcissistic, manipulative, and volatile mother in Max Cohen’s short film "My Mother Is".

Winemak'Her

Bethany Reading

The amazing Bethany James had another reading for her FANTASTIC pilot and this time I Zoomed from my bathtub because of Wifi issues… I’m not sure if anyone could tell😂

JULY 2022

Galatea

I spent a blissful week working on one of the best scripts I’ve read in years. Galatea 2.0 by Sophie Dushko is like Pygmalion in The Matrix and features love dolls and incel culture and Dolly Parton. The incredible C.C. Kellogg of Invulnerable Nothings directed the workshop at the Mercury Store in Gowanus. Vincent Santvoord, Alida Rose Delaney, Lauren Guglielmello, and I went deep on this extraordinary piece.

Survivor New York

I went straight from the Galatea 2.0 workshop to a 4-day Survivor LRG in upstate New York. No spoilers… but it was EPIC. Survivor New York Season 5 will be on YouTube in the next few months :)

JUNE 2022

Minotaur

On the opening night of Minotaur, I thought to myself how lucky I am to be back on stage. I missed theater so much. This show introduced me to a new set of wonderfully talented people, reunited me with some old pals, and was incredibly creatively fulfilling. What a wonderful welcome back! Huge thanks to Matthew Gasda, Bob Laine, George Olesky, Katie Kane, Cassidy O’Grady, Eliza Vann, Mary Neely, Aubrey Mann, and Michael Segal💜

Peace and Love

I had the absolute delight to perform in Peace and Love in Brooklyn, a new musical by Eamon O’Tuama at the incredibly cool Beckett’s Bar as part of Origin Theatre’s Mondays in May reading series. Pictured here with Maria Deasy, Annalisa Chamberlin, Ciaran Bowling, and Gary Troy.

I had the pleasure of helping The New Wild develop Everybody is Gone, a piece of immersive journalism that illuminates for audiences some of the experiences that the Uyghurs and other ethnic minorities in Western China face as a result of the Chinese government's systematic oppression.

The director, Anna Sørrig, and most of the crew of the short film "Dying to Survive" are Danish. There was a soothing babble of Danish underscoring the whole day of shooting. Very Hygge!

God of In Between

February was chock full of readings: I played a gay local politician from Minnesota in The Chaos Theory of Now by Jennifer Joy Pawlitschek, directed by Alisa Matlovsky for the League of Professional Theatre Women, and reprised Evelyn in the musical two-hander The God of In Between by Christopher Wall. Lots of creative energy in the air!
