Two Films, Two Festivals!

N.I. and JE SUIS

Hello Texas and and New York! Here we come…

N.I. is a haunting short film that explores artificial intelligence and what it means to be human. It is also part of the 2019 official selection at the USA Film FestivalN.I. will be screening in the Narrative III Short Films Category this Saturday April 27th at 9:30pm. This gripping film comes from VFX Emmy nominated and award winning director, Sallyanne Massimini, and stars Giorgia Whigham and David Meza, with me rounding out the cast as…THE VOICE. This was such an exciting film to work on! If you’re in Dallas, come check us out! If you’re not, you can catch the film online.

Je Suis explores the myth that women can “have it all” as a woman struggles to balance work and family life. Je Suis is heading to the Blackbird Film Festival as part of the 2019 Official Selection and will screen on Sunday, April 28th in Block K  from 3:00pm – 4:30pm as part of the Dramatic Action Shorts category. If you’re in the Cortland, New York area, please stop by and check us out! Je Suis is written and directed by Faith Strongheart and has enjoyed an incredible festival run. Congrats to our entire cast & crew!

It has been such a joy and honor to work on both of these thought-provoking films. And so exciting to see them making the rounds on the festival circuit. I just wish I could be in both Dallas and New York this weekend…

A New York Minute’s Glimpse into Audies 2018!

What an amazing time I had last week in New York as our audiobook community gathered for the APA Conference and celebrated the 23rd Annual Audie Awards at The New York Historical Society. It was such a special night catching up with dear friends and colleagues, and I so enjoyed the chance to make some new friends as well. I’m deeply grateful to be a part of this incredibly warm, generous, and loving community!

Congratulations to all of the 2018 Audie Award winners and nominees! What a joy it was to celebrate with you.

See you next time, New York!

 

 

 

Carousel on Broadway – A Truly Magical Night!

 

 

I am still in awe thinking about the Broadway revival of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Carousel, directed by Jack O’Brien! What a treat to see this powerfully rich show on my last night in beautiful NYC. The emotionally stirring music, gorgeous choreography, exquisite set design and absolutely stunning performances, literally took my breath away!

I was especially looking forward to seeing Jessie Mueller on stage, as I’ve been following her career since she starred in Beautiful a few years back and I just love her work, always fresh, real and so captivating.  Joshua Henry was riveting as Billy Bigelow and Renée Fleming brought the house down with “You’ll Never Walk Alone.”

If you are in NYC or planning a trip, do check out this incredible show! Now playing at The Imperial Theatre.
