“In a more nuanced role, Kristen Krak is lovable as Nina, an aspiring actress who quickly forms a bond with the man she insists on calling “Uncle Vanya.”

WILD FIRE at Denver Center

Wild Fire follows the lives of 8 people in Grand County Colorado over the course of one momentous week as they face the threat of the unprecedented East Troublesome fire in 2020. Actor musicians tell the stories through words and a folk score written by Colorado musicians.

I am DELIGHTED to be spending this summer at Williamstown Theatre Festival as a member of the 2019 Non-Equity company. I will be appearing in the Community Works production of Summer's Soldier, a new work by Boo Killebrew. Stay tuned to find out what else the summer will hold! 

The Trial of Mrs. Surratt

The Trial of Mrs. Surratt

I've spent the last two months training with The Wandering Theatre Company in preparation for their production of The Trial of Mrs. Surratt by Lanie Robertson, running in May at the Flamboyán Theater in NYC. This play features original contemporary folk music, is based in Viewpoints, and is the best ensemble I've worked with in the city. Keep an eye out for tickets and more information! 

First Feature!

First Feature!

Filming a feature in a week? Why not! I'm very excited to have booked the lead in a SAG feature film shooting at the end of September. The cast had me cackling all the way through our first table read, can't wait to get started!

"The 24 Hour Plays: Nationals is a professional experience for artists 25 and under. Over the course of a weekend, the company will engage in workshops, panel discussions, and their own production of The 24 Hour Plays in an Off-Broadway theatre."

A New Hat: Composer?

A New Hat: Composer?

When Liv and Mags ask you if you want to have anything to do with their work, you say yes! Which lead me to composing 5 original songs for their new show, "Dickie in the House," running at The PIT Loft this summer. "Based off of the 5 things they think they know about the Watergate debacle, this wacky play attempts to retell the story of this Great American Scandal. Armed with their joint ignorance, original musical numbers, and plenty of costume changes, these ladies are here to educate you, sort of."
