Fantastic time at the Premiere of The Great Chicago Adventure and the unveiling of the new theatre at the Chicago History Museum. Othel and I were proud to be asked to read the Declaration of Independence at the opening ceremony. It was a beautiful day and I was happy so many of my friends and family were there to share it with me.

Happy Thanksgiving!! I have been so busy that I have not updated in quite awhile. Filmed a National SAG commercial earlier this month and I am getting new headshots in December. Hopefully things will slow down and I can post more. Have a safe and happy Turkey Day!!

Last night’s show was probably the best audience I have had in awhile (shoutout to the OG’s).. Can and can’t wait for closing night today. It’s been great!!
