Becoming a MOM; being a MOM. What does it mean? How does it change & define us? Lorraine Rodríguez-Reyes went on a personal quest & interviewed a host of fascinating women who were brave enough to share their stories. MAMI CONFESSIONS gives us insight into these remarkable women. With amazing specificity & grace, Lorraine Rodríguez-Reyes channels the lives of these fifteen women with a thread of her own life experiences. You may laugh, you may cry, but be prepared to go on a life-changing journey.
Lorraine Rodríguez-Reyes received her MFA from Harvard's American Repertory Theatre (A.R.T.)/Moscow Art Theatre Institute for Advanced Theatre Training, illuminating an acting career that has led her to the stages of the Cherry Lane Theatre (Verse Chorus Verse), Mint Theatre (On the Edge), Repertorio Español (La Gringa), Theatre Row (A Bicycle Country, Dog Day Afternoon) & so many others. Lorraine's love of character development is what makes her such a versatile actor & she insists it's difficult to choose favorites, but if pressed, she may tell you she's quite fond of Three Sisters, performed at Columbia Stages, Dostoevsky Demons, performed at Moscow Art Theatre, Melancholy, a show she did at the beginning of her career at Harvard, directed by Scott Zigler & the role of La Extraña in De Dónde at The Looking Glass Theatre, which earned her an OOBer Award.
Lorraine's on-camera work is nearly as prolific as her stage work. Some highlights include the HBO mega-hit series, "The Sopranos," as Nurse Ramirez & on ABC, as a recurring Guest Star on "What Would You Do?" In film, Lorraine again joined team HBO as part of the HBO International Latino Film Festival as Carmen in Taught to Hate. Another of her many film projects, Willets Point, an independent film by TJ Collins, made its World Premiere at the Quad Cinema in New York City. For her performance as Doris, one of Willets Point's leads, Lorraine was nominated for Best Dramatic Actress at The Long Island International Film Expo.
