I am very excited to announce that I've been cast to play the lead in the independent short film "Float," a very sweet and touching tale about… a puppet. That's right! I'll be playing a puppet named Parker who is trying to find herself but gets lost in the drama of the human world. This little gem is produced by Believe Limited and will be filming in November.
Well, golly! Looks like everyone is loving this show! Not only did we get Critic's Pick in the Times, but we also got Critic's Pick in TimeOut NY! AND they gave me a special shout out…
"The rest of the cast is winsome too, including the go-for-broke Gretchen Wylder in multiple roles. If you like musicals that earn their exclamation points, this may be what you've been itching for." ~Time Out NY
Go-for-broke. Well, I guess that'll be my official tagline til the end of time.
For other great press and shout-outs about moi, meander over to my press page, why don't cha?
Neil Genzlinger of the New York Times gave FIVE STARS to Bedbugs!!!
Here are some of the review highlights…
"A theatrical breath of fresh air! The supporting cast rides the juggernaut commendably, even when asked to embody some creaky stereotypes."

Bedbugs!!! It's a Musical is officially open! WOW! I am living on this stage, folks. I am so very excited to see where this journey leads. Already, audiences are freaking out they love it so much. SO proud to be a part of this incredible show!
Oh, and who doesn't love a little step and repeat action?! Ba-bam!
Yeah, the title pretty much says it all.
The cast and creative team of Bedbugs is like a dream come true. Everyone is too. damn. talented. They're making me WERK, y'all.
But one thing's for sure… it's gonna be gooooooood.
I can FINALLY announce this now -- I've been cast in the new Off-Broadway production of Bedbugs!!! It's a Musical going up at the ArcLight Theatre this September! The cast is just killer and I can't wait to collaborate with all of them this month.
The show had me laughing out loud when I read it and I can't wait to hear the rest of the music. Think "RuPaul's Drag Race" meets Rocky Horror Picture Show meets "South Park." This stuff is the creation of genius, I tell you. Comic genius!
Clearly, I am excited. Here's the press release if you feel like taking a gander and for more info about the show, visit www.bedbugsmusical.com.
Sleep tight! Mmmuuahahaha
I'm a Covergirl! …well, not quite. But I am featured in a magazine! And I'm just so giddy about it! (See my 50% victory-growl, 50% giddy smile, 100% awkwardly-posing-with-a-picture-of-myself face? Yup. That sums it up.)
When I first moved to NYC and attended my first Pride parade, I picked up Go Magazine, which is the most widely distributed free lesbian magazine in the country. It was their "100 Women We Love" edition, in which they choose 100 out activists in the arts, politics, and business worlds and do a write up on each one. I thought to myself, "I want to be in that one day." And here I am! My very first magazine write-up. Exciting stuff!

The NYMF sure flies by quickly. What a blast, though! Rescue Rue was my first experience with performing in the NYMF and it was such a great one. The cast was just wonderful, with an original Broadway Avenue Q cast member as well as several current members of Off-Bway's Avenue Q! These were serious puppet people, folks. …and they weren't even that weird! Ha! I loved collaborating with all of them. Crossing my fingers for a Rue extension somewhere cause, gee, it sure was a great show.
That was quick!! Rescue Rue opens TONIGHT as part of the New York Musical Theatre Festival! Get your tickets HERE for a measly $25! Woohoo!
