Thanks to my dear friend Shaheen Vaaz, I am just finishing up playing the vivacious, neurotic movie star Masha in six totally sold-out performances of Christopher Durang’s brilliant Tony Award-winning comedy VANYA AND SONIA AND MASHA AND SPIKE at LA’s Pierce College, and it has been a blast.  LAPC has a fantastic theater program where professional actors can work alongside drama students in a supportive atmosphere of learning and mentorship, and Shaheen, who is a newly appointed drama professor there, invited me out to take part in her first production.  It has been a lovely experience being back on a campus and getting to work with up-and-coming future thespians, and not only that, but our production earned such raves in press and word-of-mouth that all six performances sold out.  Thanks to my lovely castmates, a fantastic crew and creative team for this wonderful experience.  And Shaheen, it’s an honor to have helped launch your new career at LAPC.  NoHo Arts District Review here!
