Performing in Spamalot

If you’re in the Los Angeles area, I welcome you to attend a performance of Spamalot, the fantastically funny musical theatre production that I’m dancing in this summer.


The show runs from June 29 to August 3, 2013 at the Morgan-Wixson Theatre at 2627 Pico Blvd. in Santa Monica. Showtimes are at 8pm on Fridays and Saturdays and 2pm on Sunday. You can buy tickets online or at the box office (which is open Wed-Fri, 4-7pm; phone: 310-828-7519).

Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Spamalot was the 2005 Tony winner for Best Musical and tells the tale of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table as they embark on their quest for the Holy Grail. Flying cows, killer rabbits, taunting Frenchmen, and show-stopping musical numbers, this production has it all.


The original 2005 Broadway production, directed by Mike Nichols, won three Tony Awards, including the Tony Award for Best Musical of the 2004–2005 season and received 14 Tony Award nominations. During its initial run of over 1,500 performances it was seen by more than two million people and grossed over $175 million.


I’ve been having a blast performing in this production, and would love to see you there.  My husband, Matthew Sheehan is serving as the Stage Manager (which means he gets to “assist” me with my many costume changes, something he’s thoroughly enjoying).

I hope you can come check it out! Remember, what happens in Camelot, stays in Camelot.

Dancing in “Crazy for You”

You’ve heard all about my novel, DANCING WITH DANGER, and maybe you’ve read that I’m a dancer myself in real life… well, now you have a chance to see my dancing skills in action!  I’m currently performing in a production of Crazy for You at Santa Monica’s Morgan-Wixson Theatre, and I’d love to see you there.  It is a six-week run, and we are currently in our second weekend. We have shows every Friday and Saturday night at 8pm and Sunday at 2pm until Aug 4th. Here is the show’s website, where you can learn more about the production and buy tickets:

That’s me on the left! This picture was (illegally) taken during one of our shows, but hey, I’m not complaining!

We’ve received some fabulous reviews, and yours truly was even mentioned in one of them! I’m rather proud of this particular mention, because I do not have a speaking role in this show.  To be singled out from the rest of the fabulous ensemble is fantastically flattering, so forgive me as I brag all about it!

Curious to know more about the show? Here’s the blurb from the Morgan-Wixson website:

Crazy For You is the story of Bobby Child, a well-to-do 1930′s
playboy, whose dream in life is to dance. And despite the serious
efforts of his mother and soon-to-be-ex-fiancee, Bobby achieves his
dream!  Memorable Gershwin tunes include “I Got Rhythm,” “They Can’t Take That Away
from Me,” “But Not for Me”, “Nice Work if You Can Get It,” “Embraceable You,”
and “Someone to Watch Over Me.”

Crazy For You was nominated for nine Tony Awards in 1992 and walked
away with three, including the coveted Best Musical — and when you
come see our production at the Morgan-Wixson, you’ll
know exactly why. If you haven’t seen this show before, you’re in for
a real treat. This show is fun for the whole family and has it all – hilarious comedy, beautiful
romance, mistaken identity, plot twists, cowboys, gorgeous dancing
girls, fabulous dance numbers, and or course, classic Gershwin music.
