At the age of seven I began studying music and dance and won every talent contest I entered. Also at the age of seven I was chosen Little Miss Twin Cities in my hometown of Crystal City/Festus, MO. In 1977 I was Mrs. Missouri in the first National Mrs. America Pageant that was televised nationwide from Las Vegas, NV. During my long career as a real estate broker, I majored in music in college, after which I became a host of a weekly classical music program over radio station KCSN (KCSN Concert Hall) followed by 10 years as host of Arts In Review at radio station KPFK. After leaving KPFK to move to Northern California, I returned to Los Angeles two years later and began writing theatre reviews for NoHoLA (later renamed MetroLa), became a contributor to The Tolucan Times writing theatre reviews and special feature articles. I also began writing an article entitled People, Places, and Things for a newspaper, The National Jewish News, and am still a regular contributor to that paper.

LOST IN YONKERS review

The Group Rep’s production of this play is of the highest quality, superbly performed by an outstanding cast and superbly directed by Larry Eisenberg (Co-Artistic Director of the Lonny Chapman Theatre). It is a drama filled with emotion, but comedy persists as well. Every performer is outstanding and all actors dialects are perfect throughout. I must give extra kudos to Roslyn Cohn for her performance as Bella. - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

APRIL, MAY & JUNE review

All three actresses give powerful performances and bring these three sisters to life. As Gary Goldstein says about why he wrote this play, “….if the words of this play can in any small way, help one rethink or reconcile any unsettled feelings toward a parent or a sibling, wouldn’t that be a great bonus?” - Recommended
