Lots of work behind the scenes happening in my world! Casting Director workshops abound and new headshots coming soon! Find me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
I’m very excited to be understudying in A Gulag Mouse by Arthur M. Jolly at Sacred Fools Theater. This amazing script about 5 women in a Siberian Prison in WWII is a calculated, violent, head trip and it’s an honor to be a part of it. Especially in our new home on Theatre Row AND to be the first show in the newly renovated (former Elephant) blackbox stage.
Since I am in the alternate cast, we only get one show!! April 28th. And this show will sell out very, very quickly. This is no hyperbole, I assure you. So I’m sharing this with you now, over a month in advance of my performance and I would love if you could get one of those seats. All of us understudies will, I’m sure, have a lot of people vying for them that night. Click here to get a ticket.
“In the pressure cooker of a Siberian gulag, five women will learn to work together… or die trying. Grim tragedy and dark humor coexist in this wartime thriller.“
This show I’ve been doing has been clicking along to sold out houses so well that I forgot to update here and for that I am sorry! BUT we did just extend, so check out the very funny world premiere western comedy by the brilliant, Bill Robens: Rio Hondo at Theatre of NOTE! Extended until Jan 10th!
“If you’re in need of a diversion in these terrible, wearisome times — and surely we all are — might I suggest Theatre of Note’s uproarious staging of Bill Robens’ western parody Rio Hondo” “It takes great skill to play goofiness well and with a straight face, and in this wonderfully silly show every cast member steps up to the plate.” – Deborah Klugman, LA Weekly
“Bill Robens has provided [a] witty and knowing Rio Hondo, currently in its world premiere at Theatre of NOTE. Director Jaime Robledo brings a stylish panache to the show, which benefits from a comedically inspired ensemble.” – Terry Morgan, Stage Raw
“Rio Hondo, for its part, deconstructs the traditions and tropes of movie westerns with all the rigors of diligent scholarship and none of the pomposity. Author Robens’ tools are fascination and delight, and he has in Robledo the great fortune of a perfectly attuned presenter.” “It’s just a very good and often hilarious show that uses the right people in the right parts.” – Jason Rohrer, Stage and Cinema
“There are endless one-liners and outrageous burlesques of film and television violence crashing nonstop through Robens’s delightfully silly send-up, all brought to life by Robledo’s unique comedic vision and a stellar supporting cast.” – Travis Michael Holder, Arts in LA
I’m so happy to share that season 2 of EastSiders has a few episodes available for watching on Vimeo with more coming up soon and coming to DVD Nov 3. I’m also SUPER jazzed that the episode I’m in is up on AfterEllen.com! You can read about it and watch a scene from that episode here. Check the show out, it’s really good!
