I have been lucky enough to appear at Sunset in “You Can’t Get There From Here,” “Steel Magnolias,” “Moon Over Buffalo,” and I will always be grateful to the After Sunset Studio Series and Nathan Marinan for the opportunity to be a part of the remarkable cast of “Andre’s Mother” and “Mothers and Sons” last season.
