Recent Work

Last fall I played Annette Raleigh in GOD OF CARNAGE at Shakespeare & Company.  It was wonderful to act with Elizabeth Aspenlieder, Allyn Burrows and Jon Croy again and with our director Regge Life for the first time.  We were nominated for Outstanding Ensemble in the Berkshire Theatre Awards.

I had, apparently, been thinking of the role for quite some time. My family shared this photo with me from a few years ago!

We did a 3-part video interview on Shakespeare’s Will.

I have had the good fortune to play Ariel twice at Shakespeare & Company: in 2001 with Michael Hammond as Prospero and in 2012 with Olympia Dukakis as Prospera.

Boston Symphony Orchestra did a video series about music composition inspired by Shakespeare plays.  In this video I talk about Ariel and I introduce the scene where Miranda first meets Ferdinand (starts around 0:34).

In 2003 I played Cordelia with Jonathan Epstein as King Lear.
