Someone To Belong To
By Christine Denoon and Lorie Steele
Music by David Denoon
Directed by Leslie Collins
I have been busy directing an original musical debuting at The Peoples Improv Theater Sunday Nov 11th at 8 pm and Sunday night December 9th at 8 pm. The musical came to me from Christine Denoon, who wanted to write a musical based on her late father's compositions he left behind. David Denoon was a CLIO award winning copywriter who also had a passion for writing music and jingles. So, after many years of his songbook just collecting dust in the attic, Christine got it out and asked a friend to play all of these songs just to hear them. Some of them she remembered from her childhood and some she had never heard before. He even had music collaborations with famous composers such as Jerry Herman in this book and NEVER HAD ANYONE HEARD THEM!!! Anyway, she and Lorie Steele set out to write a book and use these beautiful songs in an original musical. They brought me on board to direct and here we are... "Someone To Belong To" I am so proud of this piece and I hope you'll come to see and hear this charming new musical. Follow her tumblr about the show! www.musicandlyricsbydaviddenoon.tumblr.com

Rock of Ages Ad
Watch out for me across town! I recently shot a print ad for the musical "Rock of Ages." You can see me as a housewife and a rocker chick on subways and billboards all over NYC!
If you missed my solo show, Poteet Girls, at the NY International Fringe Festival... no worries! I will be performing the show again very soon. Check back here for the latest performance dates. Until then, come see me improvise at the PIT every Friday night.

New Comedy Short
I filmed a new comedic short featuring JB Smoove (Curb Your Enthusiasm). This video was a blast to make and I always appreciate the opportunity to wear lace in public. I make an excellent hooker.

Two of the films I acted in for the NYTV Festival were official selections. They recently debuted at the end of October, with "From Adam" winning Best Writing for the entire festival. I am proud of both films, check out the trailers!
