Harold Pinter's OLD TIMES on Broadway directed by Douglas Hodge starring Clive Owen, Eve Best, and Kelly Reilly with Hair and Makeup Design by Amanda Miller.


Harold Pinter's OLD TIMES directed by Douglas Hodge for Roundabout Theatre Company's 50th anniversary season with Hair and Makeup Design by Amanda Miller closes this weekend after a limited run on Broadway.  


This weekend the MANNES college of music and PARSONS the new school for design collaborated to bring to the stage at the Gerald W. Lynch Theater, the New York Premiere of Jonathan Dove's modern opera FLIGHT.  I've been the Wig, Hair and Makeup Designer for The New School MANNES OPERA Department for ten years and still have a great time working with these young talented singers led by Artist Director, Joseph Colaneri. 



I'm headed to Steiner Studios on Monday for fittings with Steve Coogan and others in the cast of the new series HAPPYish.  Watch for its premiere on Showtime in April.

johnbrown by Dean Moss at the Kitchen

In May I was thrilled to work with Dean Moss and company on a video of a short scripted text written by playwright Thomas Bradshaw that was included in the new work: johnbrown.  johnbrown premiered at the Kitchen in October.  

Directed and produced by Dean Moss/Gametophyte, Inc. from a commissioned original text by Thomas Bradshaw, it features (in order of appearance): Pete Simpson as John Brown; Okwui Okpokwasili as Frederick Douglass; Aaron Hodges as Watson (JB's son), and Tymberly Canale as Helen Pitts (FD's second wife). The custom created wigs and hair pieces were designed and constructed by Amanda Miller.

Enter Autumn

It was a busy summer in the wigshop offering support with custom wig and facial hair rentals and sales to the fab hair/makeup teams on locally made TV series like ELEMENTARY, GIRLS, THE GOOD WIFE, and new series' UNBREAKABLE KIMMY SCHMIDT for NBC and CRIME for HBO. 

I also did design work on a couple films #MADEINNY.  Watch for future posts as the films are released in the next year.

Well Deserved EMMY Award Ms. Margulies!!!

Couldn't be more thrilled for the wonderfully cool Juliana Margulies on her EMMY Award Win for her work on THE GOOD WIFE.  I love working with the hair and makeup team on this Made in NY series.

A Visit to the Wigmaker

Freelance writer Katie Calautti approached me via email at the start of the year about an article she wanted to write for Vanity Fair.  We found a time for her to come by the wigshop for a visit.  What a great time!
