New play: All for Joe

The new musical, All for Joe, will be performed on July 16 at The Duke Theatre in NYC. Joe dreams of making it big with his music, but goes into the business world to support his family. Meanwhile, his daughter finds her first love, his wife and her friends struggle with being middle-aged and his father-in-law thinks he’s Elvis! In the end, there is a twist, but one thing is apparent… The tremendous love his family has for him.


“Meant to Be – The Lives and Loves of a Jersey Girl”

As a young girl in blue-collar New Jersey, I loved three things: Danielle Steel novels, Gopher on “The Love Boat,” and working on my tan down the shore every summer. I figured I had a bright future as a cruise director or…well, what career was there for a girl who knew all the Guns ‘N’ Roses lyrics?
