About Diana

intelligent, off-beat, sarcastic... a young "Bebe-Neuwirth-mixed-with-Bea-Arthur" (At least, that what's Peter Filichia of the Star Ledger thought)

Most recently, you may have seen me on I'd Kill For You, As the doe-eyed, distraught wife and mother... who’s actually having a torrid affair and masterminds a brutal murder

Coming up soon... After producing and performing in the NY premiere of The Unfortunates, a riveting one-woman show as part of FringeNYC and Fringe Encores: it's back for a limited run!
