I'm super excited to be performing in TYPECAST this Sunday @ The Duplex. The concert will benefit two incredible organizations: Life After Hate & Drama Club NYC. Life After Hate is an organization that works with individuals who want to leave a life of hate group involvement for a life of love and inclusivity; while Drama Club NYC works with young people caught up in the juvenile criminal system using the performing arts as a tool for them to find their voices and thereby lowering their chances of returning to prison significantly. All proceeds from this concert will go to both organizations.
Tickets are $15 online or $20 at the door. There will be a two-drink minimum at the venue. Click here to purchase tickets!
I'll be performing at 54 Below on Tuesday, October 24th, through Lindsay Mendez and RSO's Actor Therapy! I'm so excited to be returning to the 54 Below stage, and performing alongside some wonderful, talented students of Lindsay Mendez and Ryan Scott Oliver.

When I was 8years old, my parents took me to see one of my first Broadway musicals, Aida. I remember I was sitting in the audience not really knowing what to expect when a tall beautiful dark woman appeared on stage as the leading lady. I was shocked; confused; emotional. All of these feelings crept up on me because I had never seen a black woman in a lead role in a musical. Before that I had no idea that someone with my shade could achieve more than ensemble or background. Heather Headley inspired me that night to reach for more than the backup singer or the token black player in the ensemble. Representation matters--it mattered for me, and it matters to other women and children of color. All women of color--directors, composers, and performers--are giants in an industry that lacks representation, and this concert is an ode to them!
Join us for Alex Sage Oyen and James Presson’s Archie’s Final Project at The Script @Stage 74, a new musical development program. The Script @Stage74 is dedicated to developing new works and cultivating artists while also benefiting the surrounding community. Committed to the words develop, donate, and inspire, artists will be donating their time and, in lieu of ticket sales, audiences will donate an item such as a can of food, item of clothing, or book that benefits a chosen mission program of Jan Hus Presbyterian. At The Script, artists and audiences will come together to inspire.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
