"Whether live theatre, Zoom, film, or television, I can't wait to share my upcoming projects with you!"

Deadly, The Musical:
I had the honor of working on this new and exciting musical that was done in COMPLETE isolation. As an actor in this Zoom production, I was responsible for my costume, hair, makeup, set, props, lighting, accompaniment, and filming myself for each scene all from my apartment living room! Throughout all of the rehearsals and the two weeks of filming, every member of the company, from the actors to the designers to the directors, did all of their work in isolation.
While the idea of never being able to be in the same room together presented its challenges, especially the idea of learning complex musical arrangements through Zoom, everyone worked incredibly hard to create and bring a new and exciting hybrid of musical theatre and film to audiences from across the country!
This musical experience, turned film experience, was directed by Caesar Samoyoa (Broadway's Come From Away), with book and lyrics by Vanessa Claire Stewart (a fellow WebCo alum), and music by Ryan Thomas Johnson. This musical brings to light the stories of the incredible women whose lives were cut short by the infamous serial killer, H.H. Holmes.
