In the winter I booked an incredibly fun gig called Pants on Fire. It's a really fun podcast that helps kids gauge what's true and false. Two experts come on the show to talk about a subject, and the kids use their lie-detecting skills to see who's the expert and who's the fake.
The hosts, Deborah Goldstein and Ethan Berlin, are hilarious, and all of the episodes are a delight, mixing humor with history. My episode on Glass just came out.
This summer began joyously with a visit to LA to see our old friend, Kacey Camp, who played The Queen at The Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire, which was my first full-time acting gig. Kacey welcomed me to The Faire in the same way she helped my husband and I move to New York: with an open heart.
She was so good at playing The Queen that my hubby and I continued to
call her, Your Majesty, especially if we wanted to curry favor.
As I began to work onstage in New York, Kacey moved out to LA and landed some sweet gigs on TV. She was even showcased on Entertainment Weekly when Universal Studios opened up Harry Potter World. So my hubby and I headed to LA to see my family and catch up with Kacey at her new stomping grounds in Hogsmeade!
My husband loves dinosaurs. Always has, always will. When our nephews were old enough, he couldn't wait to share the Jurassic Park movies with them. That's how much he loves dinosaurs.
He recently posted this on Facebook, and it made me smile :)
We went to CA a few weeks ago to see an old friend from the PA Renaissance Faire: Kacey Camp. She was our Queen when we were both hired for the Shakespeare troupe at the faire, and we've been friends ever since.
Kacey showed us around Universal Studios, and we had to go on the Jurassic Park ride. My husband suggested I film some segments for my webseries, Laura Loves NY, so we did a special California Edition:
My husband is the one making faces behind Kacey and me in the early part of this vid. He's a big kid and so am I! We keep each other laughing. :)
More vids to come from our CA visit. But for now... onto the next adventure!
I was so honored to have the very talented Russell Kohlmann on my web series, Laura Loves NY. We had a blast, running around the West Village, singing songs, talking about upcoming films, Kate Bush, sharing advice, and celebrating Pride.
