The leaves have changed colors and the temperature has dropped here in NYC…. I can’t believe its November already! October just flew by! It was a busy month for me and I couldn’t be more thankful. To kick off my month of October, I was a part of the Mario Fratti-Fred Newman Political Play Reading Series. You know that wonderful moment, as an actor when you read a script where the playwright has given you words to really play with– that’s exactly what happened with Jason Maghoney’s script, HEART. A compelling story about the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina & how a young woman tries to show her “heart” on putting the pieces back together. Being able to be directed again by Theater Hall of Fame Producer/Director Woodie King Jr. was a joy!
Other exciting news of October, The Fall Season of Celi’s Hangout kicked off with vengeance! I took my first ever ON CAMERA Technique class. Dena Tyler is such an awesome teacher I learned a great deal from her and look forward to making my transition from theatre to TV and Film. Speaking of transitioning , it has already begun. Look at all the screen credits that happened in October: (Click on links to watch)

To round out the month, for Halloween, I paid tribute to actress Uzo Aduba from Orange is the New Black! (I love the show!) I dressed up as character “Crazy Eyes” and uploaded to Youtube a “home video” performing lines from the show. As an actor, its great when there are shows that come along that inspire us. Orange is the New Black is a show that truly shows an array of characters! Who knows? Maybe some day I can be a Litchfield prisoner as well 😉
