2012 Update

April 20th, 2012

Hi all!

I’ve already been wonderfully busy this year. In January, I was thrilled to play Jenny in Neil LaBute’s The Shape of Things and Grumio in The Taming of the Shrew, both with CAGE Theatre Company. The productions were extremely well-attended and well-receieved.

March brought us the opportunity to re-mount “Hit and Match” in Manhattan Repertory Theatre’s long one-act competition. Most of the December cast was able to return.

April has been a bit more relaxed, but it’s just the calm before the storm: there’s lots to come this summer. Stay tuned for more new plays, Shakespeare, and singing.

Oh! I have a Twitter account now. Feel free to follow me: @melissajmeli

More soon,

Melissa
