About ActYourAge!


Born the same year as Wonder Woman, we've both had our share of hard knocks. I've survived 6 broken bones, 2 broken marriages and a broken spirit. Now I'm "breaking a leg" on stage!

In hilarious and moving scenes, I portray a "sophisticated" 16-year-old who becomes a telephone operator in NYC and an unhappy Hausfrau in the Swiss Alps. Then I segue into a globetrotting entrepreneur and an intrepid sailor at the helm of my own life.

Now that I am performing ActYourAge!, the comment I hear most is, "You are inspiring!" – which inspires me.
