For those of you who didn’t know me 25 years ago, I dreamed of being a Broadway singer and dancer. In my senior year in high school, I got the part of The Leading Player in Pippin which Ben Vereen played on Broadway. I knew I had what it took to be a Broadway star.
I got into NYU School of the Arts for Drama, but every course was theater related and I thought I should have a more rounded education and chose Barnard. I got a great education and did some theater. After college, I pursued an acting career whole-heartedly for two years landing very few interesting parts. But, as an after school teacher, I developed interactive storytelling techniques and my career as a storyteller was born.
Fast forward 25 years. I’m telling my personal survival story at conferences around the world. When I saw a theater festival in New York City looking for one-act plays that are easy to produce, I applied. On October 8th, I have my one night of fame on 42nd street. My presentation educates, inspires, motivates, and entertains….a lot of bang for your time and a few bucks.
Hope to see you there!
