Well, this was quite a night!
Myself & my team were running from one hotel to another doing hair & makeup for the worlds icons.
The list of legends of the Grammys were overwhelming.
This is just some of the artists that were being honored:
Whoopi Goldberg & Paul Shaffer were presenters.
Needless to say we had a busy & memorable night :)
This Award show is one of a kind. First it takes place in one of the most beautiful places on Earth St. John of the Devine.
It celebrates the LGBT Community & it's stars!
Cyndi Lauper was honored & had 12 violinist play behind her as she sang "True Colors".
It was sad at times hearing the stories of people that were killed in the Orlando shootings & many other very disturbing stories but this show is trying to keep people aware of what is going on & the LGBT community is getting stronger & wiser with the help of educated people.
I LOVE my Crew below!!!! True ANGELS!!
So Steve Harvey's first hosting show was "Showtime At the Apollo" 20 years ago. Unfortunately he was fired & there were so many other hosts that took over the show.
Most like Whoopie, Capone, Monique, & many others I did the show with over 15 years ago at the Apollo.
Steve decided to buy the show & bring it back every Saturday night like the old days.
6 days..3 shows a day... We had our first couple of months.
Looking forward to our next run :) complete with Steve harvey & The Sandman.
Well, this was the first year the NBA had it's own award show & it was awesome!
Drake was the host... how could they go wrong :)
Nicki Minaj sang & had 18 dancers that all needed hair & makeup. It was a crazy show but as ALWAYS.. we got the job done & with elegance.
Looking forward to next year.
I JUST LOVE MY CREW !!!!!!!!! THEY ARE THE REAL STARS!!!!!
This was one of the best plays I've done in quite awhile.
I was honored to work with Kevin Kline which he won the Tony for his performance in this play.
The wig maker, wardrobe, writers all should have won awards!
The wigs were all sewn by hand with love & the wardrobe was spot on for the 1920's
Again I was so honored & grateful to work for Broadway HD & PBS for being able to see & be part of the fabulous play.
Kevin shined as the true star that he is !
Thank goodness the Tonys came back to Radio City! That is their proper home :) We were at the Beacon the last couple of years.
Kevin Spacey was our host this year & he did not disappoint. He was funny & he can really DANCE & SING!
Uma Thurman , an old client hung out in the makeup room & we had some laughs.
It takes a village to pull off this show & I'm proud to say this is my 18th year doing it.
This is my favorite show of the tear...No drama because theatre actors are so professional that drama isn't even in their vocabulary :) Which in this business is RARE!
This show just keeps getting better & better every year!
What an AMAZING play we did at The Tony Kiser Theatre.
The best part was meeting this fabulous actor Wade McCollin. He transformed his beard into frost in 2 minutes then changes it back. there were many transformations & it was so exciting to be a part of this beautiful cast. I learned a few things as well.
Again it was cool that Broadway HD streamed this LIVE.
Check out the transformation on Valerie Vigoda below.
This is totally worth going to see. Keep your eye out as they are moving to a new theater .
What a wild night in Asbury Park :D
It was the 9th Annual Red Carpet Induction Ceremony ..Class of 2016 Inductees
Pretty much the best of the best of New Jersey.
This was my first year & i knew quite a few of the inductees.
Jay O Sanders & I did like 8 plays together & he was one of the presenters so the photo below is him & I being photo bombed with our producer Marc Wollin. Very cool night!
The Inductees were:
Kelly Ripa, Carol Blazejowski, Carol Higgins Clark, Connie Francis, Rosey Grier, Arthur Imperatore, Tommy James, Wyclef Jean, Ray Liotta, Chuck Wepner, Peace Pilgrim, & Alfred Koeppe
Tommy James & Wyclef Jean performed. It was an awesome night.
I just love doing plays. It's hard sometimes to even get tickets & the hustle trying to get in & out of he city & the price.. well that's another story!
So I feel very blessed to be able to film these plays & being a big part of watching them being streamed on Broadway HD.
This play staring Marin Ireland was very dark but she was a ONE WOMAN show & commanded the stage for the full 90 minutes.
It was dark but sometimes reality is not funny!
Being in the desert meaning VEGAS for 15 days is hard on a girl, but working with Penn & Teller & the whole "Fool Us" crew is so worth it!!!
This is our 4th season of "Fool Us" on the CW Network channel & they are already taking about the 5th season...YAY! The show was also nominated for many awards this past year. 2017 will not disappoint!
Penn & Teller are the coolest guys to work with & all the magicians that come on the show make for such a memorable day.
Of course I would NEVER tell how the tricks are done..... but honestly the acts are getting better & better. There were more magicians that fooled them this year than all the years combined.
Can't wait for next year :D
When John walks into a room you know it!
He's in awesome shape but he can't fit into clothes off the rack :) John's legs are so muscular we had to rip the back of the board shorts to get him in them.
Working with him was a blast as he was the host of the Nickelodeon "Kids Choice Awards".
It was a very COOL feeling looking up in Times Square & see the promo we did for the show. As they say it was as big as life.... and life is GOOD!!!
One afternoon I received this call asking if I could do "Drone Racing" for the DRL in an empty warehouse in Nokia Bell Labs. This is also about a good 3 hours outside of New York City.
Thinking to myself what??? Why would they need makeup & hair???
In comes Abby Hornacek the host. She is also the daughter of the head couch of the New York Knicks Jeff Hornacek. She lives in Los Angeles now going to school but is trying to make it in the broadcast arena which I know all of you are going to see her & she will be a household name. She's that good :)
It's not so much ..well of course she is stunning but she is a real trouper. We had to be at this HUGE empty warehouse for at least 14 to 15 hours a day & she never complained.
Drone racing is so cool & worth looking up to watch, just saying.
It was an awesome experience & a gig I'll never forget. The people at DLR are also very cool!
