Original Artist Series

Melissa E. Driscol has created an online talk show during the pandemic that takes a detailed look at a different artist every week through interview and performances and/or video. I am thrilled to say that I will be her eighth guest on Saturday, September 19, 2020 at 8pm EST. I’ve known Melissa for a number of years now through my performing at Stonewall Inn. She a talented performer herself, who has proven to be a warm and gracious host during this series. We will cover how I started acting and writing, which led to a vast array of content creation, particularly during my time in the pandemic. We’ll also likely discuss the performing I’ve done for other artists’ projects from the world premiere of the musical What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?  to Law & Order: SVU


The  highlight of the evening will be the premiere of a very fun piece I used to perform at Stonewall completely revamped into a special effects/musical extravaganza for this “broadcast from home” era we now live in. Here’s a sneak peek:

UPDATE: Here is the performance from the show:

pride 2020

For its 10th anniversary, I’ve given this song a makeover. I wrote it during the fight for marriage equality, yet the song still resonates given the actions and goals of the current administration. This July, I celebrate 10 years of marriage with the man this song is about. No one can take that away from us.
