Cabaret, Footage, and a very Full Calendar

June is filling up quick, and I decided to add it all to my Get In Gear calendar, an incredible 100 day program built by Show Biz coach, Bonnie Gillespie:


This is helpful in keeping track of all the footage I've filmed for my web series, Laura Loves NY, as well as setting up days for post-production. I also added the cabaret class I'm teaching with Mary Feinsinger, my Music Director from Hell's Belles the Musical at the 92Y.  I'm kinda amazed myself at this opportunity until I realized I've done two cabarets: one at The Actors Fund called "Love in 35 Minutes," and the mini cabaret I crafted to promote Hell's Belles when it was running Off Broadway. I performed it at the legendary Don't Tell Mama, or "Mama's" as most cabaret kids call it.
 

 I've also got the usual stuff of auditions and working with my acting and voice coaches, and it helps to see how I'm filling my days with so much good stuff!

Hope you are too!

Broadway Bites with the Queen of New Jersey

I met Erin Zapcic a few years ago when she was a wench at Medieval Times. Since my first professional gig was in the Shakespeare troupe for the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire, I could relate. We both connected via Self Management For Actors by Bonnie Gillespie, and we did Get In Gear together, which is a unique program that is truly life-changing as well as career-changing.

Erin recently made history as the first queen of Medieval Times, and it took me back to my brief stint as Queen Elizabeth for Penn Ren. My husband said I swaggered like Bette Davis ;)

I invited Erin onto my web series, Laura Loves NY, to hear about some of her adventures. She met me at one of her favorite spots: Broadway Bites:
