AMANDA TREES
Performed in Le Boudoir at Chez Moi 
(fashioned after a Marie Antoinette speakeasy)
I couldn't resist seeing what was behind the secret entrance to the downstairs music room - none of our RC women wanted to make their way to Bklyn so late at night - so, it was just me.  Quite a treat, too.  Delectible edibles, wine & jazz.  Thank you, Amanda!
DIANE FINDLAY
Gateway Playhouse
Aug. 20 - Sept. 15, 2018
Broadway World:
". . . boasts an entirely superb cast."

Long Island Advance, Glenn Rohrbacker :

"Another standout performance is from Diane J. Findlay, who plays the role of Hannah, Alex's mentor and dance coach.  She brings a piece of humanity to the story that gives Alex's quest more meaning.  Findlay is also excellent in the delivery of her comedic lines, and can balance her feelings between the lighthearted moments and the ones that aren't so much.  Her back and forth with her aide Louise, played by Amanda Finch, is also very humorous."
