How Not do Date While Trans | Short Film by Nyala Moon |
Screening Schedule and Awards
August to November 2022
“How Not to Date While Trans” explores the intrigue, as well as the many challenges, of the dating life of a black trans woman. In this dark comedy, we live through the events and experiences of the main character, portrayed by superstar Nyala Moon as Andie, trying to navigate the roller-coaster ride of a trans woman dating on the complex and comical journey of mating and dating. It was great being part of this unique and wonderful break-through film. It is now screening all over the world and being well-received by the critics. I feel so honored to being part of such an important film.

Bellevue Love Story | Short Film by Michael Wolfe |
May to November 2022
Playing Vidal in the film “A Bellevue Love Story” was such an amazing ride. As a dancer myself, like Vidal, it was an intense experience expressing an art form that requires practicing hours in front of mirrors, to achieve what sometimes felt like an unattainable ideal. Thank you to our amazing director, Michael Wolfe, who crafted all the characters in this film with such impeccable creative detail, and to all my amazing fellow actors and crew. What a team!

Last night was my opening night performance of “Museum” by Tina Howe at the historic Amateur Comedy Club, produced by The Snarks, which was founded in 1909.
“Museum” follows a day in the life of a “Metropolitan” museum, its guards and patrons. The play is a didactic spoof on high-brow art and the decaying state of our culture.
Thanks to all the Actors and especially the Emmy Award-winning director, Penny Bergman, who skillfully directs and gracefully choreographs “Museum” to great effect, assisted by the wonderfully talented and fabulous Rebecca Downs and Tyler McCombe. And if God is in the details, I loved the guided-tour voiceover by the ever-elegant sounding Philippe de Montebello, whose mellifluous voice reigned as Director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art from 1977-2008.
