Beam 2018

This year Beam took place at the Stratford East Theatre March 1st-2nd and was a showcase of some of the most talented new musical writers, composers, directors and performers. It was a joy and a privilege to take part in it and I was so fortunate to see some incredible new work and new talent.

Rebecca Applin and Pete Ashmore wrote “On This Day”, a piece about the relentless attack of the 24-hour news cycle and it was written to examine innovative ways of utilising actor-musicians. Adam Lenson directed a cast of 4 actor musicians which include Pete, Joey Hickman, Josie Dunn and myself.  Feedback was very positive and the hope now is that it will find a collaborator to give if some weeks R&D exploration before a full run in the future.

Earphones Award February 2018

Very excited to announce I have won a Golden Earphones Award from AudioFile for my narration on “Death Below Stairs” by Jennifer Ashley.  Here’s the review:

An excellent story combines with an excellent narration. Anne-Marie Piazza’s proper English accent is perfect for this murder mystery set in Victorian London. Shortly after Kat Holloway is hired as a cook at a Mayfair mansion, her assistant is found bludgeoned to death in the larder. As the murder investigation unfolds into a scheme to assassinate the queen, Piazza perfectly voices the various classes and accents of the characters who range from servants to aristocrats. Piazza deftly delivers the voice of Daniel McAdam, a mysterious man who can move among servants as well as gentry. Piazza effectively captures all the suspense and drama as Kat and Daniel risk their lives to save England from disaster. Listeners will be delighted with this series debut.
