~The last weekend in July I made it onto a PIT House Team. Yay! We named ourselves TrapDoor, and we continued to perform long-form improv comedy every Monday night!!
~I made my most outrageous appearance to date in Kurt Braunohler's Night of the Living-- as a giant baby in a giant Baby Bjorn strapped to Kurt for the whole opening monologue!!! I seriously cannot wait to get those pix.
~I was a featured dancer in the music video "Awkward" by The Vigilante. Check it out here!
~In addition to performing with TrapDoor, I was invited to perform with Hello & Epic Beards, the PIT's first two musical improv house teams!!!
~In personal news, two of my longtime students had their Bar/Bat Mitzvahs!!! They chanted beautifully. Awwwww :)
~I performed in Times Square and on the High Line in Tyler Ashley's "Half-Mythical, Half-Legendary Americanism", a dance theatre piece produced as part of Performa11, a biennial performing arts festival. Check out a review of our piece on Whitewallmag.com!
~A mish-mash of everything: TrapDoor, Epic Beards, Story Pirates, Night of the Living... and a trip home to Saint Louis for Thanksgiving!
DECEMBER -- hold on to your hats...
~I booked TWO projects that I auditioned for in ONE day!!! I shot a web commercial for MD Connect and played a well-meaning but ditzy receptionist... and I sang and danced in new web content for Skinny Cow: the shoot was an outdoor, one-shot, two minute music video with my new friends at And Now Media!!!
~I was hired as the new online host for CheapNYC TV-- a website for free and Cheap things to do in NYC. We have already shot two projects: one at SantaCon and one on the Staten Island Ferry!
~I did another Zoeshow: LIVE! in conjunction with aMios (theatre company).
~Hot Damn: My PIT team TrapDoor had Daily Show correspondent Wyatt Cenac as a guest performer. Not a bad way to close out 2011!!! :)
Should my new year's resolution be to update this blog a LITTLE more often??
Ha! We shall see... ;-)
