Mad Women

I haven’t been in front of the camera or treading the boards since State of Women closed, but that’s not to say I haven’t been performing… You may have noticed I fell in love with social media and I have pursued it with a college certificate & I made a move to headquarters within the museums I work at to tell the story of ALL the museums, not just the two I have managed since 2011. I love storytelling. I think that it was only natural for me to become a performer/actor, but online media is a new stage of sorts to perform on! I tell the museum’s stories there and I am super excited about it.

Last night I got to dress up and tell the museum’s stories at a 1960 Beatles event at Market Gallery and it was oh so fun! I used Joan Halloway from Mad Men as inspiration, see the results!

It was so fun to be in period dress (and not be in a bonnet!) and get so many people’s reactions – so many participants shared their stories of fashion and memories of their friends and family looking like me! (And a lot of people thought I looked like Joan so that’s good! Mission accomplished!)

I love playing dress up, that will never change. I love telling stories either on stage or off 🙂
