TueNight 10: Nandita Shenoy

Quick Bio: Nandita is an actor-writer who loves to hear an audience laugh.  Her latest play, Baby Camp, had a public reading in NYC on July 8th.

Beyond the Bio:  “As I hurtled toward 40, I felt such a sense of urgency that if things didn’t happen before that date, I would be doomed forever.  But then it happened and my life, including my career, got better! I’ve worked more consistently as an actor, had more plays produced in better venues, and experienced a truly stable and loving relationship, all in this decade.”
