What's In A Name?
On first encounter, folks may find my name a little difficult to pronounce, so lets start there:
né-hé-sigh-u is a little song
say to yourself, "I'll never lie to you"
now say Né-hé-sigh-u
and... di-ganz rhymes with "hands"
I've certainly had my hands full. 2014/15 was an abundant Season!!
After playing "The Angel" in a critically acclaimed revival of MARISOL at Luna Stage directed by Niegel Smith, who has just been named the new Artistic Director of THE FLEA (go ahead, Niegel!), I headed to southern Vermont to play "Mrs Muller," in DOUBT.
Then onto VoxFest , a one-week new play lab at Dartmouth U, to workshop and present a staged reading of Aleshea Harris'
ROAD KILL GIANT, directed by Marina McClure.
All this before heading to Chicago Shakespeare Theater to play "Cordelia" opposite Larry Yando (Wall Street Journal's PERFORMER OF THE YEAR!) in KING LEAR.
Upon returning to NYC, I immediately began pre-production for a triptych of Gertrude Stein plays I directed for Target Margin Theater's Stein Series. My lab FIVE HISTORIC CHILDREN WHO ARE NOT ran at The Bushwhick Starr in late January.
The New Year also brought other gifts: It was my good luck to sit in on and observe Tina Packer, Dennis Krausnick and their gifted faculty guide 50 courageous participants through the first week of Shakespeare & Co's Month-long Intensive.
As well, TALENT HOUSE, NY has signed me!!
