I just made history!


Hey everyone!

I am overwhelmed to be able to officially announce that, not only was my He For She inspired NYC production of HAMLET nominated for three major New York Innovative Theater Awards (Best Leading Actress for myself, Best Director for myself, and Best Revival of a Play,) but apparently I have just made history.

I'm the first person (not woman, person) ever nominated for a major award for both playing and directing HAMLET.

WHAAAA??????

And there are articles being posted about it!

The return of my He For She inspired "Hamlet"

Hey everyone! I promise to write a longer post soon (and I'm so sorry I've been so MIA - been crazy busy with projects!)

My He For She inspired (slightly) gender reversed "Hamlet" did so well last year, it's coming back!

To start, check out my interview for AlphaNYC and The Actor's Audience (with my amazing co star Ryan Clardy - who plays Ophelia,) about the production:
