When I was 5 years old, my parents introduced me to The Sound of Music (on a VHS tape recorded off the TV). Legend has it that I insisted on watching it every day after school for a year... and, so began my love of musical theatre, film and Julie Andrews. I am a NYC based Actor, Singer, Writer, and a graduate of the Hartt School of Music. I have worked regionally, off-Broadway, in TV, film, and cabaret, having co-wrote and produced a two-person cabaret act  - As We Stumble Along. I am currently working on a one woman show. You can find me on many Stage Stars recordings and at open mic nights around the city,  singing my heart out, or occasionally, rockin' out with a band.

Welcome! Don’t have a reservation? No problem. On Cocktails at Table 7: Inside New York’s Joe Allen, your table is always ready. In candid conversations with Broadway veterans, long-time regulars, even past and present employees, your hosts, Dana, Sean and Jason, recreate the intimate vibe that an evening at Joe’s has always offered. You’ll hear stories of the “Good Ol’ Days” in 1960’s Hell’s Kitchen, rarely told anecdotes from the shows on the “Flop Wall,” and the special connection between the restaurant and the people who make theater happen (Chita Rivera, F. Murray Abraham, and Daryl Roth, just to name a few.) You’ll feel like you’re tucked away at your favorite table or perched on a barstool sipping a martini, enjoying an insider’s night out. What began as an effort to preserve the connection to our beloved community has evolved into a joyful celebration of the memories and moments that have made Joe Allen one of Broadway’s most enduring hits. Cheers!


Cocktails at Table 7- Inside New York’s Joe Allen is produced and hosted by Jason Woodruff, Dana Mierlak, and Sean Kent, with music by James Rubio and logo design/artwork by Christina D'Angelo. The producers would like to extend a special thank you to the owners of Joe Allen, Orso, and Bar Centrale Restaurants.
