What an amazing day, recording all new demos for the musical Gone With The Wind with Jerry Sternbach and the glorious Janene Simpson. I had the time of my life this afternoon, singing beautiful music and laying down some tracks with two uber-talented people. YAY!


September 1 -
I just need to write about last night. I am so incredibly thankful to every person that showed up in support, whether you were there in the house watching the show or on-stage singing or playing an instrument. I am floored and completely humbled by the turnout, the compliments and the energy in that room last night. So grateful to have each and every one of you in my life. THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!

January & February ~

Happy New Year!

The months of January and February were some of the most artistically fulfilling and also the most painful of my life. I had the absolute pleasure and honor of being a part of the cast of the Adam Guettel & Craig Lucas musical, “The Light In The Piazza” at South Coast Reperatory Theatre. I truly was one of the best experiences of my career. This cast and crew were some of the best I have ever worked with and I feel so blessed to have been a part of it.

On a sadder note, as some of you know, I have been caring for my Aunt Elizabeth in Northern California this past year as she fought with Colon Cancer. On Sunday, January 26, she lost that fight. There is nothing more to say except that she was like a mother to me and I am devastated. But I know she is no longer in pain and that she is with God.

I wanted to express my gratitude to all of you for the thoughts, prayers and well wishes while we all struggled through this together. Now it is time to heal.

March ~

The month of March was filled with readings of new shows, including a new play “The Piaggi Suite” as a part of The Living Room Series at The Blank Theatre Company in Hollywood, followed by a private living room read of a new musical at the end of the month. This month also saw a trip to New York, which included seeing LIZA and ALAN at Town Hall (that’s Liza Minnelli and Alan Cumming...and Musical Directors Lance Horne and Billy Stritch), followed by Liza’s birthday party and then Kinky Boots on Broadway a few days later to witness my friend Eric Leviton in his Broadway debut. It was a fulfilling and productive trip...but now back to work! THE SWELL SHOW is happening in New York at Birdland Jazz Club in mid-May! Lots of rehearsing to do. Here’s our sizzle reel... look for me at 2:34 in!

Monday, May 13, 2013
Birdland Jazz Club
New York, NY

Tickets available now!




January and February ~

The new year has begun with a bang! On January 1st, I received a phone call which eventually led me to be cast in a concert version of The Songs of Andrew Lloyd Webber, replacing the incomparable Valarie Peri, one of the original EVITA replacements. We rehearsed for a few weeks and then we were off to South Carolina, where the concert was performed at the Newberry Opera House. It was an amazing experience and I truly can’t wait to do it again!

During that rehearsal process, the phone rang again - but this time...it was THE OSCARS calling!!!

I had the amazing honor and privilege of being one of 24 people , hand-picked by the incredible producer Cameron Macintosh, to sing in the Les Misérables Ensemble at The 85th Annual Academy Awards on February 24th. I still can’t believe I just typed that...but it truly did happen! It was everything you’d expect it to be and more - one thrilling day after day. I am so grateful for the experience and so incredibly happy to have met and worked with some of the best singers and actors on the planet.

To see our performance, head to my MEDIA page - it’s the first video posted!

Two days after The OSCARS, I received a phone call from The Blank Theatre in Hollywood to be a part of their Living Room Series - playing Louise in the reading of THE PIAGGI SUITE. It was a wonderful week of playing with a crazy gifted cast and an incredible director and production team.

Next up - working on my first album (looong overdue!) which will be titled “&” (or Ampersand). I am really looking forward to working with some of my most favorite people on the planet - can’t wait to begin sharing info on the album soon!

March / April 2012

It has been a whirlwind couple of months! Can’t believe we are already in April. Here were the happenings...and stay tuned for more!

~ March ~

Friday, March 23 brought a fun evening, coaching the middle school kids at Paul Revere School in Pacific Palisades on their current production of Crazy For You (a really fun annual event I am a part of with Scott Nevins and, this year, Tony Award winner Daisy Eagan joined us!). I performed a Jule Styne song at a Rick’s Picks evening, benefitting the Actor’s Fund on Sunday, March 25. And, on March 30, I had the great honor of singing in an evening celebrating the gorgeous music of my friend, John Bucchino, at THE COTERIE in Hollywood...a truly special night.

~ April ~

April has already been a busy month! On April 1, I was a part of a wonderful evening, singing Bob Merrill music for the April Kritzerland show. It also celebrated the inaugural show of the Sterlings Upstairs at The Federal (my new favorite spot in my neighborhood!). The cast was amazing and the special guest was the incomparable Lainie Kazan. She understudied Barbra in Funny Girl, of course, so you can imagine how nervous and excited I was to have the responsibility of singing “Don’t Rain On My Parade” and “People” with her in the house :) It all went so well and I am thrilled I was able to be a part of that night.

Monday, April 2, brought another concert - Musical Mondays at ELEVEN Lounge for my friends Scott Nevins and Ryan O’Connor! I also did my first duet there, with my dear friend Lesley McKinnell. Many moons ago, Lesley and I did Les Miserables at The Hollywood Bowl together and she just got off tour doing that little show WICKED...so we finally got to sing For Good together! It was a blast and I am so happy we were able to share that night.

All great shows - all so fun - and much more to come!
