NEWS 

BLKS AT SPEAKEASY STAGE COMPANY

I am absolutely thrilled to be back doing theatre in-person with "Boston's Home for the Bold" at SpeakEasy Stage Company! BLKS by Aziza Barnes "follows three twenty-something Black women trying to find intimacy and purpose in a city that doesn’t seem to care about them." I am having a blast playing That Bitch on the Couch and Drunk White Woman. You can learn more about the show, view cast bios, and purchase tickets here. We open October 29th and run until November 20th, 2021!

MEET ME IN THE BATHROOM

I loved reprising the role of Laser and playing the villain (cue black lipstick, thick eyeliner, and a whole lot of teenage revenge) in Boston playwright Cassie M. Seinuk's new play, "Meet Me in the Bathroom," directed by Cassie Chapados. This virtual reading was entirely rehearsed & shot on Zoom and presented live from our bathrooms on June 20, 2021. Watch the angst, high school #metoo movement, and teen drama explode at the Facebook live event here.

 

SEEING VIOLET

I had the pleasure to work with Boston director Vincent Earnest Siders on this Zoom reading of Peter Snoad's new play, "Seeing Violet." Set in a wealthy, coastal Massachusetts town, I played an early 30s wife hunting for answers to New England's part in the Slave Trade while reconciling her personal grief and confronting her part in white supremacy. You can view the whole play here...

 

CENTRAL SQUARE THEATER'S VIRTUAL WOMEN & SCIENCE THEATER FESTIVAL

I was absolutely thrilled to be back in the rehearsal room (on Zoom!) as part of CST's virtual Women & Science Theater Festival. I played several female characters - from a dutiful Victorian Irish sister to the revolutionary physician Alice Hamilton and even a robot - in the "In the Play Lab: Original Ten-Minute Plays" event! The plays were streamed online from April 15-18th, 2021. You can view more about the festival here...

KILLING MOM

In February 2020, I was cast in my first New York City production, Killing Mom, a poignant comedy and new play by Megan Smith-Harris with Jessica Jennings as director. I was ecstatic to begin rehearsals playing Kat, a blue-haired goth teenager with a lot of mommy issues. However, due to COVID-19, the production was unfortunately postponed. In an exciting update, the play was added to the Kilroys List 2020, which you can find here. You can also check out the Killing Mom production website here... 

LITTLE WOMEN

Christmas magic? Dancing with my idol, Emma Watson? Petticoats & 27 button jackets & my first time on a feature film set?? I had the time of my life as one of the Principal Dancers in Greta Gerwig’s Oscar-nominated film, Little Women (Columbia Pictures), which was released in theaters nationwide on December 25th, 2019. Be sure to look for my bobbing blonde head at the Gardiner Ball Scene (when Laurie and Jo meet) in the first ten minutes of the film. Watch the official trailer here

 

A CHRISTMAS CAROL

In November 2019, I returned home to Boston for the holidays and joined the cast of A Christmas Carol at Central Square Theater, playing the roles of Belle and Martha Cratchit. The production ran from November 29th to December 29th. You can view promotional clips from the show here.

SNOWGIRL

In April 2019, I was brought onboard as the Choreographer for Snowgirl, a new play by Rosie McInnes that was developed at Central Square Theater in Cambridge, MA. This was my first choreography project for which I devised movement for a work-in-development. On November 11th, 2019 Snowgirl had its first workshop production and world premiere as part of the Nora Theatre’s “That’s What She Said” series.
