Veronica Traymore is still considered one of the greatest actresses who ever performed on the English speaking stage. 

Born Velka Schulze, she started her career as a child touring the country with her sister Rosamund.  She met her first husband, Reginald Traymore, in her first Broadway play, Beyond the Hills, where he rechristened her “Veronica” after the character she played in it. 

It was only a few years later, after the Traymores had some success in London performing in repertory, that she achieved stardom playing ‘Little Minnie’ in Tender Silences on Broadway.  The decades that followed saw her create iconic performances in such plays as The Wild Duck, The Merchant of Venice, Sitting in the Middle With A Hat On, and A Question of Morality, among many others. 

She retired in 1962 after a triumphant run as ‘Miranda’ in Five Feet Below.  She died in 1978, outliving all three of her husbands.   It is fitting that today’s audiences get to rediscover a moment of theatre history and the legend that was Veronica Traymore, in Deadly Stages.

(Phoebe/Connie) was introduced to the stage at age six when she auditioned for a professional production of Show Boat. When asked if she had prepared something to sing, she replied, “Yes, I am going to sing for you, ‘You Are My Sunshine’. Would you like me to do it Operatic, or Country Western?” Inevitably, she sang it for them both ways and somehow, still got the part.

After graduating with a BFA in acting from Emerson College, Dani was hired to play Snow White in San Francisco’s long running Beach Blanket Babylon. Following her tenure at the Blanket, Dani joined Actors Equity and found a passion for developing new works at TheatreWorks Silicon Valley where she created the role of Harriet Smith in the world premiere of Paul Gordon’s Emma.

Emma was made into a feature film and can be viewed on Amazon Prime and Along with co-creator and director, Tim Werenko, she co-wrote, co- produced, and starred in the award-winning web series Running Lines, now streaming on YouTube.

Though raised in California, Dani is proud to be a New York actor. If it wasn’t official before the Law and Order appearance, it is now.

Great adventures include: touring the country as Miss Barley, et al. in the Tony Award winning musical A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder, playing Chana in Paula Vogel’s Indecent, several Off-Broadway productions with the National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene, and practicing just enough to sing at Carnegie Hall.

One response to “Meet Your Cast here”

  1. […] (Video Design and Direction) As of right now, I only have David’s acting bio, which does not do justice to his technical/artistic expertise in creating the video sequences for DEADLY STAGES. I could re-post his acting bio here, but you could also just go find the MEET YOUR CAST page, and read it there… so here’s that link: Meet Your Cast here on […]
