May, 2019

5/29: Ta-daaa! My name is changing. Most of my previous work is still under RJ Newell. It’s me, though. I swear. Unless it’s embarrassing. Then it’s not me.

5/26: Closing night of Macbeth at the Loft Ensemble was electrifying. Thank you to all who came! It was a blast to play Hecate in Russian.

5/22: New headshots, who dis? I shot with the fabulous KAT TUOHY, my favorite LA headshot queen. New photos are coming soon.

5/18: It’s table read season at Loft Ensemble! I’m giddy AF over the brilliant cast who read my first original play. Death and Other Girly Things is aliiiiive! Thank you to all who made it so fun.

5/15: RJ Fontaine is now a SAG-AFTRA member. Now she’ll only speak in third person. It’s required, to obtain membership. That, and fairy blood.

5/8: I’m stoked to be on the committee for organizing Loft’s 1960’s-themed Grand Opening Gala (June 9)! It’s going to be fancy. Get your tickets here.

5/4: I went to my first Renaissance Faire and it was fantastic. Happiness is eating a turkey leg in a sea of corseted boobs.

5/1: I <3 the Groundlings School. Classes are fun.
