From Merle's forum:

Well, I'm off again. After a WONDERFUL run in MOST WANTED at La Jolla, I have migrated to L.A. for the next few months. The project is a new piece called ATLANTA at the Geffen Playhouse. Check it out Geffenplayhouse.com
I will take some time out to go film NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH written and directed by the incomparable Rod Lurie.

Hi! I've only discovered Merle this summer, but I've fallen in love hard and fast. I just posted seven icons over in my journal, so let me know what you think! Thanks.

Love the new look (...of the community)! Not that this is a good thing for those late-night train rides, when maturity takes a tumble, but so be it. It looks fab.!

Tango, Anyone? [Saturday
June 30th, 2007@2:29pm]

[ mood | excited ]

From the blog:

Well, well, well... I thought I had put up my tango shoes. But I was wrong. It is OFFICIAL. I will be tangoing with Anthony Rapp in the RENT! And, if you missed me opposite Adam Pascal in Aida, you can see us on stage together again at the Nederlander as Joanne and Roger who do not interact at all... he he
Tarzan closes July 8th and I will be on stage at RENT July 9th. This will only go until the middle of August, so get on it, get there, give me a jungle yell!
Movie coming up, gig coming up, and so much more...



From the forum:

Oh yes! I will be tangoing again for a very short stint. But this time with the darling Anthony Rapp. I will come back to RENT as Joanne the day after Tarzan closes, July 9th and stay until mid-august. Very excited! Come support...

Undercover Showtunes [Friday

From the forum:

Hey Guys! Thanks for being so amazing and supportive. With that in mind, I wanted to let you know that I will be performing @ The Zipper Theatre in a benefit for the New York Musical Theatre Festival. It will be quite amazing with lots of Broadway, Film and TV stars singing an eclectic selection of music. This is the same space where the Working Benefit was. I loved that space and I'm excited to get back there. It reminds me a little bit of the theatre we had when I was in college! So, check the blog for more details. See you there!

Love, Merle

And from the blog:

Hey Gang! Just a note to tell you that I will be performing in “Undercover Showtunes,” the second night of NYMF’s highly-anticipated Spring benefit concert series to raise funds for the 2007 NYMF Festival. The evening will feature an extraordinary and eclectic group of Broadway, TV and film performers bringing out the theatrical side of the music world’s most beloved rock and pop songs, an approach that met with great acclaim in their kickoff concert of songs by singer/songwriter Ben Folds.
Also peforming will be: Gloria Reuben, Alison Fraser, Christian Campbell, Mano Felciano, Michael Winther, Stephinie D'Abruzzo, Peter Friedman, MMIriam Shor, Ann Morrison, Mary Faber and Natascia Diaz.

So. HI. My name is Lizzie. I just saw Tarzan on Wednesday and I loved it. Merle was AMAZING. Clearly, as if she could be anything less. And here is my picture with her. ^_^

Because I don't want my giant face all up on the top...Collapse )

Broadway.com video and photo op of Tarzan. They show the same clips as the BWW preview, but they interview the cast and creative people and Merle is interviewed towards the end. I dont think Ive actually ever heard her be intervied before so that was cool.


Heres pictures too.  A lot of new ones and Merle is in a bunch.  There's a picture of her and her boyfriend in there too.  They look like kind of an odd pair but she looks so happy in the picture :)
