I'm thrilled to have been asked to participate in the William Inge Play Lab this year with my play Ocotillo. This is the 36th year of the festival and Beth Henley is the featured playwright. That should be some Master Class!
ANNAPURNA has opened and the reviews are great. I am so grateful for a place to live and be in such a lovely play.

Ocotillo is now a finalist at Route 66 Theatre Company in Chicago and The Playwrights Center, Minneapolis. One of these days it will actually be selected.

I shot a TV pilot with Kevin Nealon. Also in the cast were David Arquette and Peter Bart. Lots of fun. Then the following week worked with NY Directors "The Speilbergs" on the new Dollar Shave campaign, playing (who else?) the power woman.
