Circus Theatricals is on fire!

September 4, 2010

In theatre news…

Circus Theatricals (my company!) & John Farmanesh-Bocca’s Not Man Apart‘s co-production of TITUS REDUX is a hit at the Kirk Douglas Theatre! This limited engagement – starring Circus’ Jack Stehlin (Weeds) & Brenda Strong (Desperate Housewives) – closes on Sept. 12th, so hurry on down to Culver City and catch it before it moves on to NYC…and points beyond.

Today this link appeared on CBS Los Angeles — http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/top-lists/top-99-seat-theaters-in-l-a/

…naming Circus Theatricals as one of the top 5 99-seat theatres in Los Angeles!

(Getting Out – the play I starred in during June & July – is even mentioned in there!)

OK. OK. Enough about that.  What is DLB up to?

Voice over is keeping me busy.  So hurrah for that!

And not to be too vague or anything, but I’m finally moving forward on a long-gestating personal project that – God willing – will end up on the big screen in the not too terribly distant future. (I’ve waited 11 years as it is to get this baby on its feet.  I think I can be patient awhile longer.)

I’m also so excited to start Shakespeare Workout at The Antaeus Co. next week.  The 1st month will be spent working with director Bart DeLorenzo!  Hello Hamlet, King Lear & Twelfth Night!

Happy Labor Day weekend everyone!  I’m outta here.

where was I?

May 7, 2010

Hello again.  Figured I’d check in. Since I last wrote, there’s been some activity here & there.

My CRIMINAL MINDS episode aired on Wednesday eve (aka Cinco de Mayo).  Hurrah!  If you blinked, you missed my mug (but damn, I looked good for those 1.5 seconds!), but you definitely heard me a heck of lot through that Teaser.  🙂

A couple weeks ago, they brought me in to do ADR.  A page of new stuff!  That was fun.  But sometimes I wish I didn’t know what I was doin’ in front of the mic, ya know?  I mean, I was in and out of that recording stage in 20 minutes!!!  Sure sure, I made the post people very happy for giving them a little extra time to eat their lunch.  But I have so much fun…I just wanna do MORE of it, ya know?

Speaking of fun…I seem to be coming up for more voice match gigs.  Now, that’s pretty cool, too.  Did Amy Poehler for a spot back in December.  And had a callback to match her BFF for a Dreamworks Animation project.  (so close, but alas, no cigar).  And turned in a (I think) good “stab” at Julia Roberts for the upcoming Eat, Pray, Love.

Next week, I’m going back to The Young & the Restless to do another off-camera u-5 for them.  Now, this is a cool way to do voice over — from a recording booth on the soundstage, I get to do the scene LIVE with the actors who are on camera.  (Look ma! I’m really acting!)   Good times, good times.

And last but not least, I am in on-going rehearsals for GETTING OUT (become a fan on Facebook).

The opening is finally in sight!  We’re playing on Sunday nights through June (7pm.  starting May 30th, Opening Night June 6th) at the fabulous Hayworth Theatre downtown! Come on down and see me tackle my 1st lead role in a gorgeous play by Pulitzer Prize winning playwright, Marsha Norman!  Directed by Robert Cicchini.  And co-starring members of the Circus Theatricals Studio Ensemble.

Don’t miss this very limited run!

Ok.  That’s enough for now.

Network Primetime Debut on Criminal Minds!

March 22, 2010

I shot my role on CRIMINAL MINDS last Friday!!!  This was my 1st job on network primetime, and I had a BLAST !  The episode (“…A Thousand Words”) was directed by the wonderful ROSEMARY RODGRIGUEZ, and written by one of the coolest people I’ve met, Executive Producer, EDWARD ALLEN BERNERO.

Ya know, I always wondered what casting office would be able to stake claim to “casting Dana Lyn Baron in her 1st role in primetime” (I know I keep repeating that word.  So sue me…I LOVE saying it!).  A HUGE thanks to APRIL WEBSTER & ASSOCIATES, and specifically SCOTT DAVID & ERICA SILVERMAN.

From the audition to the table read to shooting — the Criminal Minds cast & crew was just awesome!  So welcoming & supportive.

My only wish is that it didn’t all go by so fast.
