Fabulous LA STAGE Times interview with director Bill Castellino

There was even a wonderful feature article written about me in UCLA’s Daily Bruin – I’m a proud alum of their theatre dept.!

Party Time!

It was great to have so many friends and family come out to support us this past weekend!
I was especially blown away by my dear friend, the uber creative and talented Jonathan Fong of Style with a Smile TV, who came, enjoyed, and showered me with a custom-crafted, personalized IONESCOPADE necklace! How amazing is this!

So sad to say goodbye to our incredible director, who is now back home in NYC working on, gosh… I don’t know how many exciting new projects. Bill is always busy, and after having had the honor of working with him these past few weeks, I can list many reasons for why he’s always in demand…

But we’re not letting go of our amazing musical director, Gerald Sternbach!
Thrilled to have him with us for the entire run of the show!

    Hi Kelly, wow! This looks fabulous. Unfortunately I’m not able to visit any of your performances live, but it’s so nice to get a glimpse of this sparkling musical via the internet. Big Hug from Holland 🙂

    Juan – If you make the trip, we’ll do the show for you twice, just to make it worth your while 😉 Hugs back!!!
