The full cast of Chicago’s production of Drunk Shakespeare has been announced, and—you guessed it—I’m in it! As stated in the Broadway World article, “Drunk Shakespeare begins with one professional actor drinking more than five shots of liquor before attempting to lead the cast through a Shakespeare play in under 90 minutes. The results are messy and outrageous. Every night is different and truly anything can happen.” Come see me surrender to the spirits and the Bard beginning May 2 at the Lion Theatre (182 N Wabash).

This spring, I will be understudying the roles of the Traveler and the Woman in The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane at Filament Theatre. I am so, so, SO excited to be working with Filament on this stunning play about love and loss (I [expletive] you not, I have not been able to get through the play once without crying). Performances begin March 30 and run through May 26. I will be going on for the Traveler May 11 and 12. For tickets and more information visit http://www.filamenttheatre.org/

Happy to announce that I will be playing Miss Casewell in Metropolis Performing Arts Centre’s production of The Mousetrap by Agatha Christie! The murder mystery-thriller holds the title for the longest running play on the West End, and I’m excited to explore its twists and turns. (It helps that my favorite board game is Clue and I went through an Agatha Christie phase in middle school.)
The Mousetrap runs January 31 – March 16. For more information visit MetropolisArts.com, and check out the casting announcement at https://perform.ink/metropolis-has-its-the-mousetrap-cast-and-creatives/

Last night, I went on for German stewardess Gretchen in Metropolis's production of Boeing Boeing. Though I had three hours' notice and one rehearsal, with the help of my incredible castmates and stage manager, the show took flight, with only a bit of turbulence along the way. Big thanks to the incredibly supportive and kind flight crew of this Boeing aircraft for guiding me towards a smooth landing. Until next time--auf wiedersehen and gut nacht!
(I apologize for all the flight references I’m still on a bit of a high from the performance hahahHAAAhaaaa)
