Vicky is living her dream working as a zookeeper, spending her days with penguins, lions, tigers and bears (oh my!). Theatre has always been an interest of hers, but ever since moving to Ohio in 2003 it's become a true passion. Downtown Cleveland – the largest theatre district outside of Manhattan – is a frequent stomping ground. She sees as many touring, local, regional and orchestral productions as she can and is always looking to broaden her theatrical horizons. When not outside at the zoo or inside a theatre, Vicky enjoys photography, bird watching and knitting.
War changes men. Faith changes men. Family changes men. These are a few of the themes central to THE WHIPPING MAN, the Civil War-era drama playing at Cleveland Play House's Second Stage through December 2nd. This is the type of show that sticks with you, the type of show that you'll be thinking about days later. Do yourself a favor and see it before it closes.BWW Reviews: New BEAUTY AND THE BEAST Tour Can't Compare to Original November 13, 2012
BEAUTY AND THE BEAST is a 'tale as old as time' and while the story and music are wonderful and as good as the audience may remember, the new NETworks touring production - currently playing at PlayhouseSquare - is a far cry from the magic of the original Broadway and touring productions.What's On: Upcoming Shows in Cleveland and Akron - Nov 2012 November 5, 2012
The first national tour of ANYTHING GOES kicked off over the weekend and is already proving itself to be a must-see show, playing to near capacity crowds. The cast and crew of the S.S. American stay in port through October 14th before sailing off to the next city. Make plans to pick up tickets if you haven't already!What's On: Upcoming Shows in Cleveland and Akron - Oct 2012 October 8, 2012
A veteran of stage and screen, Pamela Myers has starred in several of Sondheim's works, including INTO THE WOODS, GYPSY, SWEENEY TODD and SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE.

June 7, 2012
When all is said and done, Great Lakes Theater should be extremely proud of its first collaboration of PlayhouseSquare as part of the annual Key Bank Broadway Series. The production is on par with the touring shows that stop in Cleveland. Just because SONDHEIM ON SONDHEIM is considered a regional production shouldn't stop people from going to see it. You'll leave the theatre with a deeper appreciate of the theatre process, more knowledge of the amazing Stephen Sondheim and a song or two stuck in your head.What's On: Upcoming Shows in Cleveland and Akron - 5/1 to 5/31 April 30, 2012
When you think of vibrators, the Victorian era generally doesn't come to mind. Most people would probably find the sexual revolution of the 1960s a far more appropriate time frame … and yet Sarah Ruhl's IN THE NEXT ROOM, or the vibrator play, takes place in 1880s post-Civil War America when vibrators were regularly used as a medical tool.BWW Interviews: Talking Shakespeare With ROMEO & JULIET'S Christian Durso April 17, 2012
Los Angeles native Christian Durso stars as Romeo in Great Lakes Theater's current production of ROMEO & JULIET at the intimate Hanna Theatre in downtown Cleveland. I recently had the opportunity to ask Christian Durso a few questions about Shakespeare, a topic he is obviously passionate about.
BWW Reviews: GLT's ROMEO & JULIET Is a Captivating Romance – Now Through 4/28 April 16, 2012
The tale is one everyone is familiar with - Romeo and Juliet, two star-crossed lovers - fall in love despite the fact they are the children of two feuding families. Their tale ends in tragedy when a series of duels forces them apart … but ultimately reunites them in death.BWW Reviews: THE ADDAMS FAMILY Tour Proves Lackluster, Now Through 4/22 April 12, 2012
Since their creation in the 1930s by cartoonist Charles Addams, the Addams Family clan - Gomez, Morticia, Wednesday, Pugsley and Uncle Fester - has managed to infiltrate popular culture. Whether it's singing along to the finger-snapping theme song from the 1960s television show or instant recognition of the macabre characters, most everyone has a connection to the Addamses. That's one reason the touring production of THE ADDAMS FAMILY was so disappointing.What's On: Upcoming Shows in Cleveland and Akron - 4/1 to 4/30 April 4, 2012
Veteran stage actor Bob Ari stars as painter Mark Rothko. He has appeared on Broadway (FROST/NIXON, THE CONSTANT WIFE, BELLS ARE RINGING and LAUGHTER ON THE 23rd FLOOR), Off-Broadway and at regional theatres across the country, as well as landing parts in several television shows and movies. I recently had the opportunity to ask Ari a few questions about his role in RED …
