Seven years ago, I moved to Chicago from Seattle.  I landed in a whirlwind of auditions and new opportunities and took on all sorts of fun and wonderful projects.  One of these projects was a ridiculous show called "Impress These Apes," which, if you're in Chicago and haven't heard of it, you should totally check … Continue reading Chicago and Me

Thoughts about the show from an audience member…

I am having a delightful time performing my one-woman show, 185 Buddhas Walk into a Bar...  I can't believe that the run is almost over!  When I got online this morning, I was greeted by a lovely message from an audience member who saw the show last night.  Here is the message: "I cannot stop … Continue reading Thoughts about the show from an audience member…
