Once the world's largest producer of lead and zinc, Picher became the EPA’s #1 Superfund site, deeming it the most toxic place in America. The Picher Project, based on interviews, personal stories and historic events, covers the town’s 100-year history from the opening of the mines to the town’s demise. While grappling with losing their homes, the town is forced to confront their complicated political divide, unpredictable natural disasters, and environmentally caused illnesses. Through the lives of Picher citizens and the often forgotten experience of the Quapaw Nation, The Picher Project shows the struggles of illness, pride, love and loss. The Picher Project ultimately asks the following questions: How do we take responsibility for our history? How do we treat the land we live on? How do we leave our home?
Last Fall I had a blast playing a tiny part in this short written by the Drew Barrymore Show's brilliant Cristina Kinon and directed by the equally talented Josh Ricks. Click below to see in the IMDB listing WHY I would have done this film simply for my character's name (you'll find me listed under "Other Cast").
Finally, was tickled pink to perform alongside a stellar cast for the world premiere reading of A.J. Freeman and Sam Balzac's witty and wonderful musical version of Noel Coward's "Hay Fever."
I KNOW, I KNOW, I'M NOT ON IT....BUT STILL SO PROUD OF THIS SHOW!!!!
While I am not on the album, I was honored to have been invited to watch the recording sessions....and I'm in the liner notes for SWINGING! :)
This is truly a lovely show...and a must listen for any Musical Theatre fan!
This reviewer seems to get what the cast and creatives set out to do...
