Last Monday, January 17, 2011 I had the pleasure of attending the Los Angeles Ovation Awards. In Los Angeles there is a great organization called The LA Stage Alliance. This organization acknowledges the theatre community with an annual awards ceremony. Many shows keep their fingers crossed in hopes of being nominated.
As you may remember, last year I starred in a wonderful production: “The Women Of Brewster Place.” For my role as Lorraine, I won the StageSceneLA award for “Best Featured Actress In A Musical.”
Later we found out the entire cast and the show was nominated for 4 Ovation Awards!!!
Anyhoo…we went to the ceremony and I felt like a superstar! We walked away with 1 of the 4 awards were nominated for: “Best Production Of A Musical – Intimate Theatre.” What a thrill.

Uzo Aduba was introduced to me from my friend Saycon Sengbloh. She told me I just had to connect with this talented sista named Uzo. Well, Uzo and I met up during a dinner break she had and we had a chance to talk and learn about each other. We spent the hour talking shop and then finished with this great interview.
She is currently performing with the new musical “Venice” in Culver City, CA. If you are in the area, go check it out!
