Woman of Light

This past September I was involved in a great project, the staged reading and backers audition for Woman of Lighta rock opera based on the life of Mary Magdalene written by my dear friend Michele Wagner. I was in London for two weeks to assist anyway I could, and ended up being in the cast directed by the wonderful and amazing director, Marc Urquhart. How was it being in a play in the West End? Pretty far out. We performed September 21, 2012 at the Charing Cross Theatre.

In October I was privileged to work with my son, Dante Piro, for the first time in a show. We were both in Pinkalicious, the musical, at Roanoke Children’s Theatre in Roanoke, Virginia. I played Mrs. Pinkerton and Dante played the role of – wait for it – my son Peter. It was a ton of fun, kids loved it, but the best part was working with Dante. Check out the excellent review in the Roanoke Times.
