Dana Weddle, from Oklahoma to the Peace Corps to Hollywood, "We have been wanting to do this show together forever, it seems! We fell in love with the music in college and have been dreaming of doing the show together ever since. Holy wow! 10 whole years ago. Now we live in Hollywood and have been so fortunate to have met Mike Pettenato, the owner of The Cupcake Theater. We did a little singin' at one of his cabaret nights and he wants to put on the show with us! He is stoked about Last Five Years and is as excited as we are about it. "Dana Weddle just recently took home the 'Best Actress' award at the International festival of solidarity in Film in Barcelona, Spain. The film was called 'In Tune With you' in which she played the lead.
