Welcome to all Dark Shadows Fans!
Welcome
to Dark Shadows fans from "the most evil lady who ever lived" -- or at least that's how I was referred to when I was playing Eve on DS. I've gotten to know many of you through the DS Festivals, but I know there are some who can't get to these wonderful weekends, or worse yet, don't know anything about them. I hope to fill that gap and to keep our regular Festival-goers up to date with this Web site.You'll see updates on Festival and personal appearances including photos with my co-stars and fans, my theatrical scrapbook with stories and photos of many theatre productions, and my photography gallery (I'm also a professional photographer.)

My career memoir, On Stage & In Shadows was published in 2005, and is available on Barnes&Noble.com and Amazon.com.It can also be purchased at your favorite bookstore or at our Festivals. And, there's a fabulous special offer, that you'll find as you read on.

It's always been such fun to see our faithful fans at the Festivals, and now it's great to be in touch with all of you through my Website.
Hope you enjoy it.

But when the show began, this is what I changed into. (And I made the dress!)That's one of the intriguing stories in my book

 Darling Jonathan Frid

some time in the '80s

 April 19, 2012

It is with a sad heart that I write of Jonathan Frid today, a few days after his peaceful death. Jonathan means so much to so many people and he holds a very dear spot in my heart too.

We worked together on Dark Shadows. and that was the most wonderful professional experience. But we really got to know each other very well, a number of years later, when we would meet with Louis Edmonds and have great evenings of eating and drinking and talking. It was at the same time that he began his one-man shows, and I was one of his biggest fans.

We really got to know and love each when, in the 1980's, David Moore asked Jonathan to direct "The Lion In Winter" at Georgia College, and Jonathan asked me to play Eleanor of Aquitaine. That was quite an experience and cemented our friendship forever.

Jonathan Frid was a "one-in-a-million kind of guy, and I am so lucky to have known him.


 Donna MacKechnie and Marie Wallace

 Here I am with Donna MacKechnie (photo appeared on Theatermania.com on June7, 2011.) It'swas taken in the lobby of the Union Square Theatre in New York City. We attended the opening night performance and party of "Desperate Writers". We talked about the upcoming Dark Shadows Fest and it I think she'll be there along with me and the rest of the gang.

in a "wildly funny, flashback camp comedy".
  We missed our opening date of March 9th because one of our actors fell ill. However, he recovered quickly, and we had a truly fabulous opening on Friday, March 11th. We have many Dark Shadows fans signed up to see the play next week, and there's a group driving up from Maryland with Guy Haines, and regulars like Lorraine and Schurah will of course be there. One DS fan did show up on our first "opening night" - George Sauer. We took lots of photos and talked and he'll be back for a future performance. Photos will follow. In the meantime, see FaceBook

July, 2010 Dark Shadows Fest
was the BEST!!!

I'll be posting lots of photos soon (the above is from a former Fest but it's so cute, I dont mind leaving it up for a while longer.)

Many wonderful old fans (not in age, but in years coming to the festivals) were there, and at least 40% or more were NEW fans, or first-time Festival goers. It was at the Marriott Burbank Convention Center,
in, of course, beautiful downtown Burbank.

And you'll be seeing lots of his shots on my site, and many taken with my camera but shot by our fans, and some that I even took (the ones that I'm not in)

And what a line-up of cast members we had for this most exciting event!
Jonathan Frid, David Selby, Lara Parker, John Karlen, Kathryn Leigh Scott, Jerry Lacy, Roger David, Kathleen Cody, Christopher Pennock, Lisa Richards, Jim Storm, and Moi!
We also had appearances by Bob Cobert, Stuart Manning, Big Finish Productions, Sy Tomashoff, and probably a few more wonderful people who somehow I was too busy to see.


Great Success!
 September 20th EAT Benefit Concert
"Broadway Sings for EAT's Supper"

I was on the benefit committee for Emerging Artists Theatre, (the non-profit theatre group where I played in "The Chiselers" and "Where's Sheila"), and had a very successful evening on September 20th. We had a catered party/concert that took place from 6-9 pm at the Prince George Ballroom at the Prince George Hotel.

Tony Award winner Victoria Clark (The Light in the Piazza) and Tony Award nominee Chad Kimball (Memphis) entertained us, along with other Broadway performers including Capathia Jenkins (Caroline, or Change), Ryan Duncan (Altar Boyz) and Sebastian LaCause (Dancing in the Dark). The songs chosen by the artists, had the lyrics changed by the EAT playwrights into "food" songs. They were all marvelous, and Capathia Jenkins rendition of "All Those Yams" (All That Jazz) was spectacular.

Emerging Artists Theatre devotes its programming to developing new works from new playwrights and theatre artists. The company has premiered over 300 new works in its 18-year history.

In addition to benefiting Emerging Artists Theatre,
proceeds will also go to the Actors Fund of America and Common Ground.

 Dark Shadows Resurrected 2009

 with Kathryn, husband Geoff

Jonathan Frid during Q&A 

 Lara Parker with me

Dark Shadows Festivals get better and better each year - that's what all the fans tell me, and I think so too!
Our last one was in 2009, on August 14, 15 & 16th at the
Renaissance Newark Airport Hotel
in beautiful, downtown Elizabeth, New Jersey
I was there along with Jonathan Frid, Lara Parker, Kathryn Leigh Scott, John Karlen, and Jerry Lacy.
We had planned to have Donna Wandrey there, but I'm sorry to say that she ended up with a terrible
summer cold and wasn't able to be there. She was disappointed, and we actors and her fans were equally so.
But those of us who were there had a glorious time.

Theatrical

I was in the production of Mark Finley's "The Chiselers"
for the Emerging Artists Theatre's SPRING EATFEST 2009

I played the marvelous character of Beverly Carstairs and had a wonderful director, Melissa Attebery, who guided us through the production with great expertise. We did our last performance on Saturday, March 7th, and I was sorry to see it end. But we had a lovely packed house, with many DS fans, and we all had a great time.

 The SuperMegashow
& COMIC FEST

Saturday,
July 12, 2008

It was their 10th anniversary! And to celebrate, they moved to a new larger location in the Wayne NJ area at the Crowne Plaza Fairfield NJ RT 46 east next to Willbrook mall. I joined Larry Storch (F Troop, Adam West (BatMan) Julie Newmar (CatWoman)and Eric Estrada (Chips) on Saturday.
 

     


Larry Storch and Stiller & Meara and Me

  I recently had the pleasure of being filmed for an upcoming documentary about Larry Storch. It was a fun day and I have a few photos to show that enjoyment. Anne Meara and Jerry Stiller also were interviewed that day and they were delightful. Larry, as always, kept me laughing all day.

My friend, Larry Storch, (Corporal Agarn, of F Troop), just sent me this copy of a photo of us when we were rehearsing for a production of I Oughta Be in Pictures. It was in 1981 at The Hampton Playhouse in Hampton, New Hampshire. We had such a marvelous time doing that show. There are lots of stories about it in my book, On Stage & In Shadows.




I'm happy to say that the sale of my memoirs is going very well. And once again at the 2009 Festival, because there were so many new fans, and fans that haven't been to a Fest for 10 years, I almost ran out of copies. And for all of you that already had read the book, thank you for the wonderful comments about my book.
