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

“Hearts Like Fists” is a HIT!!

August 15, 2012 in News

For the past year I’ve been working on prducing the world premiere of “Hearts Like Fists” written by Adam Szymkowicz and directed by Jaime Robledo. It’s an action packed, genre bending story about the nature of the heart set in a world of evil villains and beautiful Crimefighters. We opened and it’s a HIT! We’re already adding two shows, Aug 23 and Aug 30. We got Critics Choice in the LA Times and Pick of the Week in the LA Weekly. As well as favorable reviews on Stage Scene LA, Arts Beat LA and LAist! Get tickets before they SELL OUT!!!

“‘Hearts Like Fists’ is the perfect summer date show: exhilarating, nerdy-sexy, and silly-smart.” – Charlotte Stoudt, LA Times

More Cinderella, Fight Training and Interning!

May 1, 2012 in News

I had the pleasure of working with some of the members if Interact Theater doing a Panto play of Cinderella at the NoHo Arts District two months ago and we’re back up again on May 15th for a few more shows! I get to play Mina, one of the “ugly stepsisters” and it’s SO much fun. The average grade level of the kids is 3rd grade and they are a blast.

I’m also in weekly fight training since I’m understudying in the show that I’m producing with Jason Moyer for Theatre of NOTE, “Hearts Like Fists” by Adam Szymkowicz! Lots of planning for our super fun Cos Play ball that we’re throwing and trying to raise funds through IndieGoGo. I’ve got quite a goal to meet and every dollar helps, although if you donate $50 you get two tickets to the Cos Play ball! That’s cheaper than the ticket price for the event! Lots of fun stuff on the horizon for that show and it’s a blast!

I started an internship at DDO Artists Agency and am having fun and learning a lot!
