We've just wrapped principal photography on indie film "William's Theme." I play Skye, the quirky diner waitress who overcomes her challenging past and helps re-inspire William's creativity.

Check me out on set! Can't wait to see how the footage turns out.

I've spent the past couple of months working hard to build new relationships with regional theatres across the country. I managed to combine a personal trip down South with meeting 5 regional theatre Artistic Directors. I also spent a couple of weeks on a New England regional theatre tour, meeting representatives of half a dozen more Equity houses. This brings the total of Artistic Directors I've met with personally in their own theatre up to over 25! I love getting the chance to talk Art with these hardworking and important theatre people when we have the chance to leisurely connect. And check out my cute yorkie co-pilot!

I haven't updated my little news section in hot second, and that's because I've been so incredibly busy with The King's Whore all summer!

The show is officially closed, and it was a huge success. Head on over to my Reviews page for excerpts from our rave reviews, and click over to my Theatre Photos to see some gorgeous production pics. 

I could not be more proud of how the show turned out or feel more grateful for the incredibly talented people I met because of it, both onstage and off. If you didn't manage to catch the show, you missed out! :)

I'm just starting to feel emotionally and physically recovered from a show that was so demanding, and very much looking forward to what's next!

Earlier this year, I filmed an episode of the webseries Parker & Steve where I starred with my Yorkie, Stella. The episode has been released today! Check it out on youtube, here's a still from the episode:

We're working hard on getting The King's Whore up and running this summer, and I wanted to share some of my marketing materials for the project with you!

The show will run July 27 through August 11 at Walkerspace, and will be directed by F#&king Up Everything's Jen Wineman, whom I'm so excited to work with.

We're currently in the thick of our final fundraising push -- you can back the project by clicking here before June 1st.

We're assembling the very last of our design team right now, as well, and auditions will be held in just a couple of weeks -- exciting! Stay tuned for more news as the production progresses this summer.

Well, it's official -- we closed 4,000 Miles this past weekend and I'm back in NYC!

We got some great reviews of the show, check them out on my brand-spankin' new REVIEWS page here on my site.

The reviews are out, and "The Crucible" is in!

The East Hampton Star writes, “The cast is exemplary…Kate O’Phalen as Mary Warren turns in a wonderful performance as Abigail’s cohort. Ms. O’Phalen in particular gives a moving turn as a young girl torn between going with the crowd and doing the right thing.” To read the whole review, click here!

Newsday writes, "Murphy Davis's crackling cast delivers a knockout distillation of this masterpiece."

The Sag Harbor Express writes, "This powerful production, directed by Murphy Davis, features a top-notch cast who really bring the material to life. The cast is so passionate that the audience can’t help but feel the oppression that must have been 17th century Purtan society."

Tonight we open Bay Street's production of "The Crucible"! So honored to be a part of this production, to work with an incredible cast and crew, to be asked back to Bay Street, and to get the chance to portray Mary Warren (an incredible role). Break legs tonight, everyone!
