Many thanks to Undermain Theatre, I’ve been able to add HQ posters and production stills from Amy’s role as Therese on stage in 1998 — which earned her a nomination in the Leon Rabin Awards for “Outstanding Performance by an Actress in a Lead Role”! Gallery links & previews are below, enjoy!
Back in November, Amy made her first public appearance of the year, appearing in a family friendly interpretation of Prokofiev’s Peter And The Wolf — the article below offers more information. I’ve also added a few images to the gallery; previews & links are below. Doesn’t Amy look lovely?!
As part of her Saturday Morning Mash-Up series, passionately innovative conductor Rachael Worby, Artistic Director of MUSE/IQUE, offers a kid-friendly version of Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf in which classical music becomes cool. Add in special guest narrators – Golden Globe winning actress Wendie Malick (Just Shoot Me, Hot In Cleveland) and Dan Lauria (The Wonder Years, ED, JAG) – and they will leave you and your family gasping (and texting) for joy. Before you know it, the line between orchestra and audience disappears. Performances take place at 10:00 AM and 11:30 AM on November 5, 2011.
Worby, who spends more than half the performance off the stage directly engaging the kids and families, brings her lifelong passions for people and music to the experience of the Saturday Morning Mash-Ups. As Artistic Director of MUSE/IQUE, Worby is renowned for mixing high culture with casual whimsy. She has engaged writer Matt Nix to create the text for a group of actors, including Malick and Lauria, who will each be paired with an instrument. Additional cast members are David Fickas, Kiele Sanchez, Amy Acker, Jay Karnas and Bradley Whitford as…the wolf!

Images have finally surfaced online from the reading of The Monster Tales, which took place back in February in NYC, which Amy was a part of, along with Larry Pine, Dee Hoty, Jenn Colella and Vince Gatton — the 7pm evening kicked off the Legacy Reading series, featuring readings of works from previous Boomerang seasons; Monster Tales originally premiered at Boomerang in 2002 — the aim was to introduce a new audience to the play as well as raise money for the company.
Thus, 004 images have been added to the gallery, thanks to BroadwayWorld.com — don’t hesitate to let me know if you come across any more. Gallery link and previews are below, enjoy!

Hope everyone is enjoying the daily updates at the moment – which will continue for the time being since I have some extra free time right now.
In today’s update, I’ve added convention images from over the years to the gallery – many thanks to Steve Rogerson for allowing me to repost his images – and if you have any convention related pictures of Amy, don’t hesitate to send them in. You would, of course, receive full credit.
Other images added include super rare images of Amy on stage in theatre productions and agency headshots. You may also notice that I’ve re-sorted the photoshoot section, which makes for easier viewing. Gallery links and previews are below, enjoy!
