Coaches on the Edge Present the Hair Apparent

elizabeth: Laurie and I went to see the revival of “Hair” this past Sunday in Manhattan. I remember reading about this tribal love-rock musical in 1967 and wishing I was older so I could go see it. But my parents had the local nunnery on their speed dial (my parents knew the Jetsons – look it up) and I was too cowardly back then to attempt incurring my parents wrath. Plus I would have been force-fed Frank Sinatra records and that could have scarred me for life.  So finally this past Sunday I was able to let the sun shine in on a young girl’s wish.  ...more

Lord Help Us

As most of you know, I am a theatre person--I act, I direct, I sing, I move well (that's the nice way of saying I'm no dancer, but I can pick up choreography and pull it off without looking too awful!) Ricky is also artistically minded--he used to play the flute, he was a dancer back in the day, he has also acted, directed and choreographed and now he's an arts administrator.Because we are both so artsy-fartsy, we've joked all along that we were probably going to end up with a really sporty kid. ...more

My Career in Musical Theatre

When I tell you I was in The Music Man, your first thought would probably be: "Oh, were you Marian the Librarian?" No, I was not Marian the Librarian! Just because I wear glasses and read a lot and look like someone who should know the Dewey Decimal system and my mother's name was Marian does not a Marian the Librarian make me. You think you're so smart. ...more

How I Spent My Valentine's Day. Full Story!!!

Most of the story, anyway.  Took place over 5 hours.  Details must be lost in the wash. I packed a backpack, suitcase, and the 5 foot canvas heart to bring to the space–(the Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts). ...more

Childrens’ Underwear on my Head in the NYC subway.

When I turned 27, I decided that every day of my 27th year, I would perform somewhere. I decided I could do this anywhere for any duration, so long as I had an audience of at least one. ...more

a tribute to high school actors

i love teaching high school actors. together, they are a group of inherently cool people.  and in every group of students there is at least one, often two or three, of the following: - the chic i wish was my friend - the dorky boy who will grow up to change the world - the political activist who has done more in 15 years than i have in 30 - the forgotten child who fell into acting by chance and it has changed her world - the one i want to party with - the gay boy who doesn’t know it yet, or does but doesn’t announce it ...more
