Rachel Louise Thomas Visits SOMETHING NEW Podcast
In Episode 210, award-winning musical theatre writer Joel B. New sat down (via Skype) with Rachel Louise Thomas, an actress/singer/dancer based in Los Angeles, California.
Ms. Thomas' credits include performances at The Rockwell in Los Feliz, The Cupcake Theatre in Hollywood, and mostly recently in an event for "Travel and Leisure" Magazine at The Pelican Hill Resort and Spa in Newport Beach. In February she was a featured soloist in Joel Rieke's "Apsis Requiem", an interactive opera exploring grief and community healing. Recently, she began a new adventure as a background actress on TV, film, and commercial. If you didn't blink, you may have seen her on CSI: Las Vegas or Grey's Anatomy. In the Fall of 2011, she began performing with the BroadwayWorld Award-winning Transcendence Theatre Company, located in the beautiful Sonoma Valley of "wine country" at Jack London State Park (www.transcendencetheatre.org).
Song Premiere: "Easier" from Joel B. New's TO HELL AND BACK. Inspired by the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, this indie-rock album musical follows a broken songwriter on a madcap cab ride into a soundless world to save his muse from the hands of a lonely fangirl.
