Disappearance of Melissa????


Bonjour one and all!

I am alive! I have just been extremely busy/uninspired/overwhelmed/creatively empowered this month. So much has been happening in April that I haven’t been able to focus on a theme for the month, much less take a deep breath!  Between rehearsals, performances, a quick trip home, to dog sitting, living in Queens for a week, taking tons of behind the scenes photos, to seeing amazing shows, supporting friends, planning brunch reunions, teaching in jail, and catching up on sleep, I have not been able to put all of my adventures down in the blogosphere!

So, since the month is almost up, don’t expect too many posts in the near future. I have to double down and figure out my time management skills more efficiently to bring you awesome content.

Don’t fret the New York Dreamer is still dreaming and is, in fact, involved in tons of amazing adventures. Recaps, catchups, photo galleries, dance videos and more will come, just not now!

Thanks for hanging in and check out my older posts and Instagram page to keep up with me until then.

Ciao 🙂


Oh, Hello There!


Long time, no write? Yes, I know. I’ve been missing in action over here on New York Dreaming, but never you fret. This is an extremely good thing. 2015, as I might have mentioned numerous times so far, is treating me supremely. Since I last wrote, I was cast in and completed a show, became an artist  member of a theatre company in the city I am extremely proud to be a part of, started rehearsals for another project, in the middle of rewrites for another and added another shift on to my normal duties over at the day job.


My passion is definitely in the driver’s seat this year, and that can only mean great things are on the horizon out in the real world and here on the blog. As February begins to wind down, I am ready to flood the home page with all of my adventures and accomplishments from the past two weeks AND ready my mind for my March monthly goals.

There’s a lot to do, and only 3 days to do it. Here goes!!!

Ciao 🙂

Holy Moly!


Holy Moly, you guys! It’s December!

Where on earth did this year go? It just flew by and over the course of the month I will be doing “Flashback Friday” posts featuring three months each week!

I think it’s safe to say that my “Fall First” bucket list, has been a bit of a snooze fest. After taking on extra shifts at the office, participating in readings and becoming involved with a theatre company, free time has definitely been spent with friends or fictional stories courtesy of Netflix, Hulu and the old Broadway. Eh, what can I say? I’m only human 🙂

My hope, however, is to make up for the lack of posts in November with tons of photos, poetry, quotes, and more for December. With holiday parties, family galas, Christmastime in New York, and any other exciting plans that may fall in my lap, this month shall be spectacular!

So my question for you is…how are you going to finish out 2014?

Ciao 🙂
