Check out this episode from Franceli Chapman’s talk webseries, Celi’s Hangout on YouTube. A unique forum addressing artists of color with topics ranging from finding housing to chats with up-and-coming talent like the women of Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black. Franceli is a smart, driven, fascinating young woman with a unique perspective. Definitely one to watch. So honored to be a panelist on this episode!
With Joe Manganiello, the hot werewolf from True Blood! I’m playing Eunice, the loud landlady to the iconic couple. (Incidentally, Eunice is my grandma’s name, so this one’s for you!) ACT stage veteran Rene Augesen plays Blanche. So excited to begin rehearsals next week!

We had a blast premiering our workshop production of Fondly, Collette, written by Sibyl Kempson, at Walker Arts Center in Minneapolis, MN. Inspired by the work of Jane Bowles and Mary Shelley, as well as The Women, Fondly is a gothic story about a middle-aged couple overcome by the ancient mysteries within their quiet home.
