Victoria Clark, a Tony winner for her performance in The Light in the Piazza, will direct the short film For Me & My Gal.
The film, starring Brittany Jeffery, is the first of five in the filmmaking initiative from Maggie Politi and Spiro Marcos, Ladies in Action, which features short films all written and directed by women, and starring a woman in the lead role.
Jamie Buxton penned the screenplay for For Me & My Gal, which reflects on music and the unique ways it can stimulate memories and motivate us to follow our dreams.
The cast also features award-winning playwright Glenn Alterman, Jordan Barrow (Sousatzka), Matt Cusack (Bandstand), Brooke Davis (Orange Is The New Black), Datus Puryear (After Midnight), Mya Rose Puryear (Sousatzka), and Michael Stiggers (Beautiful).
Clark was also Tony-nominated for her work in Gigi, Cinderella, and Sister Act. She has directed for the New York Musical Theater Festival (Newton’s Cradle, 2016 Best Musical, Best Director), Fredericia Theater in Denmark (2017, The Trouble With Doug), The Philadelphia Opera Theater, Texas Opera Theater, Chautauqua Opera, and the 92nd Street Y in New York
