MELINDA BUCKLEY (Writer / Performer) has appeared on Broadway and in the National tours of several shows, including Crazy For You, A Chorus Line and the great honor of working with Bob Fosse in the revival of Sweet Charity. She performed improv and sketch material with Gotham City Improv and Chicago City Limits and appeared as a stand up at Caroline’s, Stand-Up NY and Gotham Comedy Club. She has written and performed several solo shows and this most recent show, MOTHER (and me) was featured in FringeNYC 2014, where it won ‘Best of Fest’ at the C.O.W. and received an extension. Following the Fringe, it went directly into development runs at Second Stage Uptown, Chicago Shakes and at Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor. This past year, it was selected as one of 12 shows (out of 400) to be featured in Green House Theater’s ‘Solo Celebration’ festival in Chicago. This was followed by a successful 3 week run at Geva Theater Center in Rochester, NY where MOTHER (and me) performed to capacity audiences and exceeded box office expectations. It has been featured at The Cape Playhouse, the Cotuit Center for the Arts and the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown and will premiere at the Martha’s Vineyard Playhouse this coming May.
