RC 1966 ​​
After performing on Broadway in George M! and
No, No, Nanette , five National Tours, Regional Productions, I began directing, choreographing and creating solo performance projects for musicians, artists, dancers and writers in a variety of venues. As a 35 year member of Metro Baptist Church, I am a member of our Sanctuary Arts Initiative which is encouraging numerous opportunities for dancers, actors, artists and singers to perform and/or show their work.
Memories of The Rehearsal Club have book-ended my 51 years in New York City! I moved to New York from Cleveland, Ohio on September 1st, 1966 and lived in the 4th floor front room with a roommate for several months along with Blythe Danner, Sandy Duncan, Nancy Wight, MaryJane Houdina, Maxine Green and Judy Jenson!  Many of those same women came to tea and that was when the new chapter with those talented women began!

 My first full scale production, HIS LAST DAYS by Dallas Holm was performed three different years and had full AEA casts, including Judy McLane and Wayne Duvall.  Most recently, I presented an art gallery reception and show, PAX RWANDA for curator, Julie Meehan, a dance concert for choreographer, Lori Leshner and an original musical, BECAUSE I CAN, SIR! for actress/composer/singer Susan Braden who is bringing a new awareness of possibility to Cancer survivors!
In 2018, I have several new projects in the works – A monologue about racism written by actress, Nancy Linehan-Charles during February, Black History Month; a concert by the Trio, Terezetta, featuring female musicians and composers to honor women during March – National Women’s Month and during April, another Art Gallery Show titled ANIMAL SHELTER, featuring the paintings, sculptures and watercolors of artist, Marcia Scanlon.  We know ‘the arts heal hearts’ and the challenge of presenting such diverse offerings is only heightened by seeing others move their talents and dreams forward.

I hope these experiences will help move MY biggest dream forward, as well – a Museum of Dance, Culture & Movement – an idea and project that is long over-due but whose time has surely come.  As I collect the people who also believe in the importance of a Museum of Dance, Culture & Movement, I hope to see the vision become a reality sometime in my life!
