Whew! What an exciting month! Two days after moving back to Orlando, I began rehearsals for Adam Bock’s “The Receptionist,” directed by Kevin Becker. This production was the Central Florida premiere and opened on July 18th. In this four person, political, dark comedy I was cast as Lorraine Taylor (pictured below) and had to play a range of emotions such as crying over an ex-fiancé to seducing a colleague to attempting to convince my friend to go into hiding. It was a rollercoaster of a show and I enjoyed every second of it. Photo: John DiDonna
As soon as "The Receptionist" closed, I began working on “Burned,” a short film directed by Nicolas Perez. I was cast as the role of Rachel. In this piece the protagonist, Eric, is in love with his best friend, Rachel. Rachel is a fun loving, free spirit and, unfortunately for Eric, she is already in a committed relationship. Hearts are broken on Eric’s 3oth birthday when he decides to express to Rachel how he feels. Pictured above is right before Eric (Shannon Bassoe) shares his true feelings to Rachel (self). As soon as the film is finished, clips will be available on my website.
