Two years ago today I helped you cross over dad-I hope you are at peace and holding mom's hand.
A great week supporting my talented friends' theatrical art. There is hope! Congrats to you all. #nyactor #musicaltheatre #veterans #nytheatre

Oh my beloved city! 16 years ago, after walking home from the upper east side, joined at Canal Street by an army of New Yorkers covered in ash and soot, we walked across the Manhattan Bridge with thick smoke over lower Manhattan and choppers overhead. I got home and ran up to my roof the see the towers no more. Tonight this blue light reminds me of where you stood: proud and strong. #neverforget
Portrait series by artist/photographer @laurensowa for her Women in Film campaign. I talked about my involvement with the veteran community here in NYC through @decruitvets of Bedlam Outreach. Proud to begin training this week as a facilitator for his "Decruit" program. Also headed into the re-write room for my short film about veteran suicide: "The Invisible Wound". #womeninfilm #nyactor #veteran #screenwriter #worldsuicidepreventionday
When you spend a day on set, you escape the news and social media for 12 hours. My heart breaks for my friends in Houston who are rebuilding & my Florida friends who are waiting for Mother Nature to decide their fate. You are all in my thoughts & prayers. I'm gonna keep making art and paying attention. I want to hear from all of you. #harvey #irma
Mrs. Bachmann was laid to rest today. Condolences to her loving family, especially my Ferrer sister Linda who treated her mom with dignity and love.
I got to have lunch with @jakesings05 and Jen today. So proud of him as he gets ready to embark on the National Tour of "Love Never Dies". Thanks @kristenblodgette and Dan Rosokoff for being so good to Jake! #musicaltheatre #actorslife #freakyfridaypride
This brief respite brought to me by my unions! #laborday #unionpride #grateful
I had trouble singing this in church-so much suffering this week. Looks like all my Houston & Burbank friends are safe. A good friend's mom died this morning-uncanny that she crossed my mind this morning. #weareallconnected
Happy to host the producer/director/writer of the short film "The Homecoming". Hosted a screening in Brooklyn for some of my cast-mates. Salut! #shortfilm #womeninfilm #nyactor
