legacy and to inspire and support future generations of aspiring young artists."


Michele Nezwazky-Smith

RC June 1974-June 1975 ​​
I attribute all of my great successes in NYC to the foundation and support that the Rehearsal Club gave me, from the minute I first walked up the stoop and met Addie, till the day my family and I drove away to Florida in September of 1989. 

My first year as a naive New Yorker was well protected and guided by the angels that watched over our Club!  I went from a cocktail waitress to a Theatrical Wardrobe Union member during my year there. Although my dream was to be a dancer, my goal was to travel and see the world with a road show. All of my goals came to pass, with extra bonuses along the way!  

And one of the surprises was meeting my husband, Barnaby, a fellow union wardrober,  and having 2 of the most amazing children EVER!  All of whom carry on the legacy of a “behind the scenes” show biz-family!  I have since hung up my dresser's apron. And, newly retired, I'm happy to support my family, and get a second chance at friendship with the gals I met at the RC in 1974 and beyond! I'm so grateful for my life!  And I'm grateful to the Rehearsal Club for playing an enormous role in it!
