Warming my heart with coffee and a show at the Globe!

I saw the incredibly talented all female cast perform Emilia at the Globe. Emilia is one of my all time favorite Shakespearean Women…so I was elated to say the least.

“Then let them use us well: else let them know, The ills we do, their ills instruct us so”.

(Emilia- Act IV, Scene 3 of Othello)

Yes, this is real...

I will be playing Helena in Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream at Camp Bar in St. Paul! Shit-faced Shakespeare® is the deeply highbrow fusion of an entirely serious Shakespeare play with one entirely shit-faced cast member. Outrageous raucous and completely unpredictable, the show has been running since 2010 and has already entertained over 100,000 eager theatre goers across the UK and US.

We open January 20th, 2016 and won't stop running the show until who knows when! Here is the link to all the fun! http://m.bpt.me/event/2719939
