New work by local playwrights – Showcase at the Vortex Sunday August 8th

In a simple yet smart move, a talented group of Austin’s playwrights have banded together to present small samples of their work to local theatre companies and directors in the hopes of making some new connections. The desired effect is that some writers and directors will find new people whose work and ideas they respond to. For actors,  it’s a great way to get in front of a lot of directors and writers. I am excited to be doing a selection from Sarah Saltwick’s play, “She Creatures.”  I feel very lucky actually in that the scene I am doing is entirely self-contained, and not a sliver of a larger work. The other playwrights involved are Aimee Gonzalez, Jason Tremblay, Cyndi Williams, Trey Deason, and Meg Haley.
The event will take place on August 8, 8pm at the Vortex Theatre. If you have a theatre company or are just interested in the work of Austin’s playwrights, come and check it out.  The whole event was conceived by Elizabeth Cobbe.  Contact her for more information.

Working Hard

Photo from the set of Austin High by Ryan Green Photography

Hello my babies.  Just want to let you know something exciting is in the works.  Exciting to me at least.  There has been radio silence from this blog, and my JMJ site has been redirected to point here.  What could it all mean?  Developments are on the horizon.  Big, shiny ones that blind your eyes.  Stay tuned.

Austin High

The Haulin' Ass Pedicab crew

We’s tough

I’m two days into shooting Austin High and all I can say is that this movie is gonna be pretty effing funny.  There’s an entire blog devoted to it that you should not only bookmark, but potentially sign up as an extra or even add to the the kickstarter fund.  I’ll have lots more Austin High stuff to follow, but just wanted to wet your whistle with these shots of us ladies shooting on 6th and San Jacinto.  We bad.  keepaustinhigh.com

“I got your back” 69ers

That’s something improv performers say to each other before  a performance.  A tradition where you actually touch each other’s back when you say the words.  You don’t stare meaningfully into each other’s eyes or anything, it can be casual, but that’s the kind of thing I totally nerd out on and secretly love.  I’m in the secret club of improv performers!  I think that means you make a lot of “Yes, and..” jokes.  If you don’t get that, it means you’re not in the club. Like I am. I am in the club.

This show was scripted, who am I kidding?  But seriously, I want to write a love letter to everyone involved in it.  I learned so much about letting go and being bold from these people.  I was also never bored. Britney in the booth and Adam Hilton and the band were solid gold.  I feel guilty for being so afraid of performing with so little rehearsal.  I just didn’t know who had my back.

Actual New Headshot?

So I'm 95% sure this is my new commercial headshot.  Would you like me to see you a product of some kind?

So I'm 95% sure this is my new commercial headshot. Would you like me to see you a product of some kind? That could be arranged.

So, a while back, I posted my new headshot, which ended up not being my new headshot.  Now that my agent has actually reviewed them, I have more candidates that would be actually accepted.  I still like the first one, cause dammit I am wistful.  But its not versatile enough.  So the one above is approved by Heather and is most likely going to be my commercial shot.  I need a theatrical one.  Will you please help me pick it out?  I don’t trust myself at all at this point.  Photography by the hilarious and charming, Jake HoltContinue reading
