I am so grateful to Lee Brock and FAB Women of the Barrow Group for encouraging me to develop my solo piece" RANDOM ACTS". The performance on October 15, as part of the Emerging Artist Theater's New Work Series 2013 was better than I could ever imagine. We were almost completely sold out and the response was overwhelmingly positive. I am so grateful for everyone who came to the show. I hope to have a short video and some stills from the show next week. So stay tuned.
What happens when a young girl is left to fend for herself on the streets of the SouthSide of Chicago in the late '60's? Her father, a Lutheran minister, wants to change the world, and her mother just wants to be the perfect pastor's wife.
I am also happy to report that Trailer Cash 2013 was a huge success. The lovely and talented Irene Walsh won the cash prize of $2500 for her film, Lapa: The Heart of Samba. Congrats Irene!
Lastly, I had the great pleasure of doing a staged reading of T.D. Mitchell's new play, QUEENS FOR A YEAR, (She's the creator of Army Wives) about rape in the Marines. A compelling and moving piece. It was wonderful to work with the amazing Jill Eikenberry again.

"Notably, the scene between Merrick and the Marilyn Monroe played by Hinrichs, where she disrobes for him, shedding her wig and blouse, is performance at its finest." [Read Review]
