From the bottom of my heart, thank you to everybody who made the show possible.
A little over three years ago, I started singing again. Almost two years ago, I started writing FEED THE MONSTER. Six months ago I started taking acting classes. It’s been a whirlwind of activity, an adventure, and the most satisfying challenge I have ever undertaken. What have I learned from all this? If you love doing something, and you surround yourself with talented people who believe in you, somewhere along the way you start to believe in yourself. That’s when great things happen. Was the show perfect? Was my performance the end-all/be-all? Did everything go according to plan? No. No. And no. Does any of that matter? Not a bit. What matters is that I set out to do something and I did it. I had ridiculous amounts of fun doing it. And a lot of you came along for the ride.
Who knows what’s next. When I figure it out, I’ll be sure to let you know.
Meanwhile, thank you to the following people without whom this nutty project would never have happened:
Thanks to Garry Novikoff, Greg Nemec, Lola, Christian Polanco, Kia Rogers, Anthony Bova.
Special thanks to classmates Mary Dimino, PJ Walsh, Josh Rivedal and Michelle Glick for their support.
I am eternally grateful to FringeNYC for taking a chance on me.
To my amazing, funny and brilliant husband Matt Unger — there would be nothing without you.
