  • Press and production photos for QUEEN!

    “RECOMMENDED
    Brainy & Entertaining. This timely story about the interplay of science, conscience and the heart offers a most winning test case.”
    -Chicago Sun-Times

    “Awesome! Two powerhouse women fighting convention. QUEEN lifts up women in a way that’s intellectual and passionate.”
    -PerformInk

    “Intriguing, funny, and highly relevant. A cerebral version of the sexual cat-and-mouse games.”
    -TheaterJones

    “Engrossing. An excellent quartet of players… who give performances of conviction and realism. QUEEN should go forth into the regional theatre world as a popular selection.”/
    -ChicagolandTheaterReviews.com

  • No-whale whale watching

    Some days I actually take advantage of living in beautiful Southern California. On Saturday I went on a whale watching cruise in Long Beach with a friend who’d done it several times before, but thanks to the good luck charm that is me, we didn’t see a single dolphin or whale, which apparently is super weird. Still an incredible day out on a boat, (A BOAT).
