2015 was filled with many happy acting projects including a 3-theatre engagement, first at the 2015 Tony Award-winning Best Regional Theatre Cleveland Play House, then to Mark Cuddy's brilliantly run Geva Theatre Cente and his equally welcoming The Cape Playhouse, as global celebrity Masha, in the Tony Award-winning play #VanyaAndSoniaAndMashaAndSpike, cast by the inimitable Paul Fouquet, with 6 or so films rounding out the year.
A few of them include Josh Mostel's tough-talkin' wife in the comedy by Isaac Chehebar, "The Amazing Ray," cast by the incredibly warm-hearted Donna Grossman Bernstein; the lovelorn lead in the extra-talented Hugh Scully's "Confabulation" with Kevin Nagle and Frank Schiavone; and the devastated mother in the awesome spoof by Chris Carfizzi, with amazing makeup by Lenore Koppelman in #WhitePrivilegeFrankenstein.
The year's-end feature film was as the mother of the horrified daughter Samantha Scaffidi and Alan Hasnas as my husband in #DamienLeone's "Terrifier", with much gratitude owed to the hilariously talented actor & "LI Diva" award-winning star, Katie Maguire Edri, who also produced and cast me in #ChristopherEadicicco's "Waiting for the Sun."
Plus some voiceover gigs. And I started teaching my SitCom classes at The Actor's Green Room, thanks to the generously-spirited, bright light, that is Jen Rudolph.
Looking forward to continuing the filming of the oh-so-gifted Joe Ronca's feature film comedy, By The Dashboard Light, in 2016, as the erotic-Jeopardy aficionado mother of the lead character, perfectly portrayed by Keith Chandler and DP'd by the amazingly creative eyes of Derek Mindler.
And I'm so excited about the juicy series regular and recurring roles that I am booking on primetime TV series in 2016! Maybe as Liz Keen's mother on #TheBlacklist. Or a family member on #KevinJames' new multi-camera #SitCom coming to NYC. Or another of Denis Leary's old flames on "Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll." ;)
Happy Holidays to everyone!!! And may 2016 be the year that all the rest of your dreams come true! Blessings, goodies, and love to you, your family, and friends!!!
