Daily Brink’s Shayna Article… Fun!

The new online publication Daily Brink has posted an article and photos of me.  They also do an amazing job of plugging Grease 3: Threase.  The only thing they left out was how much of a collaboration G3 is with my BFF and partner in all things comedy Katherine Bryant Flaherty.  She co-wrote and co-produces G3 with me and I would be remiss to not give her the appropriate credit.  Even though I’m funnier, smarter and prettier.

Note the baby bump in the homepage photo…  That’s my kid!

If Grease is the Word, Threase is the Thword!

So we will be running our production of Grease 3: Threase September 30 – October 28th, Thursday nights at 8pm at the PIT (People’s Improv Theatre).  Tickets are on sale now through the PIT’s website.

“Grease 3: Threase” is a modern day tribute to the worlds of Grease 1 and 2, where rambunctious, musical teens help assimilate the new foreign exchange student, all while preparing for this year’s talent show. Will she ever be cool enough to be a Pink Labia? Will the T-Boners ever stop being so cool? Back from summer break at Schmydell High, the T-Boners and the Pink Labias sing and dance their way through “senior year” while learning important lessons about friendship, pregnancy, laser tag and racial profiling.

A political plea…

Check out my new pro-gay marriage song recorded at Moonwork in NYC.

And here’s the Baby Song sans the band from the same show.  Shhhh, it’s a lullaby.
