Also began a burgeoning Voice Over career in commercials, video games, and animation.

BORDERLAND By Natalie Elizabeth Weiss Comes to Brooklyn Photo BORDERLAND By Natalie Elizabeth Weiss Comes to Brooklyn
by Stephi Wild - Apr 12, 2022

On Wednesday May 25th, the first person to ever put the words ‚Äúfemale orgasm‚ÄĚ in print will finally get her day in the sun. That person is Ida C. Craddock, a real-life 19th century sexologist who, in addition to her groundbreaking sex education work, was an avowed Spiritualist who claimed to be married to an angel. BORDERLAND is a pop opera that merges the harmonic tension of contemporary classical music, the delicious ring of musical theater voices and an other-worldly blend of electronics and texture.
