Life at The Goodman

I’ve had a ball working on By The Way, Meet Vera Stark at The Goodman this spring.  It’s a terribly smart play that gave me the opportunity to play four different characters (one on-screen and some with accents).  Working with Lynn Nottage is a real personal triumph–she was one of the first playwrights I came across that taught me that I could have a voice in the American theater.  So I’m proud to say that I’ve finally had the opportunity to cross paths with her (we’re both in the seated row).  Also, Chuck Smith and the Goodman team are a dream to work with, and I’m thrilled to have developed a relationship with them.

News!

This spring I’ll be performing in By The Way Meet Vera Stark at The Goodman.  Lynn Nottage is one of my favorite playwrights that I’ve never worked with.  Her work has inspired me countless times and this piece is no exception.  I fell in love with this play when it was first produced in New York.  I remember reading it and wishing that everyone I knew had read it because it begged discussion.  It’s an incredibly nuanced, dynamic, smart, funny, tragic work.  And I am so honored to have the opportunity to explore it on one of Chicago’s premiere stages.

Also, I’m so pleased to announce that I’ve signed with Paradigm Talent Agency in the commerical and voiceover divisions.  The team there is just so helpful and accessible and agreeable.  I’m so happy about the union and excited for all of the work we’re going to do together.
