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!!
I played "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 played "Mrs. Muller" in DOUBT.
Then onto VoxFest at Dartmouth U to workshop and perform a reading of Aleshea Harris' ROAD KILL GIANT directed by Marina McClure.
All this before heading to Chicago Shakes to play "Cordelia" opposite Larry Yando (Wall Street Journal's PERFORMER OF THE YEAR!) in KING LEAR.
Back in NYC, I dove into pre-production for the Gertrude Stein Lab I directed for Target Margin Theater. My triptych, FIVE HISTORIC CHILDREN WHO ARE NOT, ran at The Bushwhick Starr in January.
The New Year brought other gifts! Lucky me, to sit in on and observe Shakespeare & Co's Tina Packer, Dennis Krausnick and faculty skillfully facilitate the first week of the January Month-long Intensive.
As well, TALENT HOUSE, NY has signed me!!
