Who am I? (Good question!)
Well, I'm a woman, an actor, a wife, mother, grandmother, and a daughter. My parents immigrated to the USA from Russia: my singing, happy father, from a small "Shtetl" in the Ukraine; my elegant, complex mother from Kiev. I spoke very little English when I went to 1st grade, but "caught up" and was off to Syracuse University at 16. After Graduation, on to NYC to make the "rounds". My first job came within 4 months---- Jo in "Little Women" in a touring company; a different town each day, 11 shows a week. I took turns driving the truck---- Salary $35 a week. Ah! the good ole days! After that? Well, it's pretty much, all here on the website.
I've been UP and I've been DOWN, but I'M A LUCKY LADY! The joy of doing what you REALLY NEED AND WANT TO DO, continues to keep me ALIVE!
