THE JOURNEY OF THE NOBLE GNARBLE: On Saturday, we celebrated the book of launch for “The Journey of the Noble Gnarble” by Daniel Errico, with illustrations by Tiffany Turrill, at Books of Wonder on West 18th in NYC. Books of Wonder is the oldest children’s bookstore in the city, with scores of old and rare treasures. Such a magical place! Jose Sepulveda and I sang a song from the musical adaptation of the “Noble Gnarble,” which is currently being spun by Denver Casado. It’s an adorable and uplifting tail tale of a little fish who longs to swim to the top of the ocean. Visit www.noblegnarble.com for more info.

BED FELLAS: I’ll be playing Amy Parker in a workshop of the new musical “Bedfellas,” by James Olmstead, Omri Schein & Andrew Smith. Also starring Ben Nordstrom, Mark Emerson Smith, Kristen Mengelkoch and Omri Schein.

Pearl Studios: 519 Eighth Ave. NYC. October 17th. 7:00pm.

Merton of the Movies

As for theatre, Donald Brenner and Doug Katsaros have written a fantastic little musical, “Merton of the Movies,” based on the novel, turned radio play. We held a casual reading last November and performed the first staged reading at the Richmond Shepard Theatre on April 27th with dear chums Josh Grisetti, Erik Liberman, Martin Van Treuren and many funny folks. It’s always extra exciting to be working with old friends and this is a fun piece for me since I get to play a whole slew of silly broads.

Speaking of comedy, LIVE FROM HEAVEN: Richard M. Nixon’s Mandatory Fun-Time Concert at UCB Theatre was a hoot! Funny-man Lee Rubenstein wrote and directed. I played Pat Nixon opposite writer, Aaron Glaser as Mr. President.

I was honored to take part in the Sing for Hope concert at the Leiderkranz Club, in conjunction with Opera for Humanity, benefitting the Ronald McDonald House of NYC. Amy Shoremount-Obra put together a beautiful night of opera and musical theatre.  Adam Monley and I sang “All I Ask of You” from “Phantom of the Opera.” Amy Decker Gibbs, Eve Gigliotti,  Rebecca Nash, Patrick Blackwell, Michael Corvino, Jennifer Tiller, Julia Mintzer and accompanists Carol Wong and Carmine Aufiero all gave wonderful performances.

Set your DVR! I’m playing Amy Sawyer, the sneaky gal hiding important documents from the FBI, on USA Network’s “White Collar,” set to air in June. The show is great and I’m excited to be a part of it! Episodes are also available online at  www.usanetwork.com/series/whitecollar/

Had a blast recording Denver Casado‘s latest project “Musicville,” written with Betina Hershey. This new show teaches children about music through a fantasy tale and is packaged with the previous “Monsterville.” I also have a new animation reel, engineered by the talented Nina Negri. She just recently opened her new studio on the Upper West Side.

I’ve become a contributing columnist for a fabulous online magazine, 24Savvy. Check out my latest articles on “Spring Beauty Cleaning,” and why “Mario Badescu Might Be the Best Goo!www.24Savvy.com.

Cheshire Fox has a new logo! Thanks to Norahead at 99Designs, we have a fantastic trademark emblem to represent all creative projects developed through Cheshire Fox Productions.
