Days before it hits your television, here's a sneaky peaky at the commercial The Civic Theatre produced for By the Way, Meet Vera Stark - which opens FRIDAY! The concept is my character, the actress Gloria Mitchell, is getting ready to shoot some close-ups, and this commercial is a collection of candid outtakes.

I haven't watched it. I can't. I look at most photographs of myself through my fingers, as if I'm watching a horror movie. I am the most unphotogenic (is that a word?) person in the tri-state area, and I will fight anyone who challenges that dubious honor. But, the show, itself, is shaping up to be hilarious, so regardless of my less-than-captivating face, you should come see it.
