There is another world, and it is in this one.
— Paul Eluard
“Not only is Shari Caplan a terrific actress, but she took to puppeteering like a seasoned professional. She brought ‘Sheena’ to life while doing something no Muppet performer ever had to do: play opposite her own puppet. Few actors can say that they played two characters simultaneously. People were surprised to learn she wasn’t a puppeteer before the episode.”
— Anthony Scibelli




As an actor, poet, and community organizer, I seek to reinvigorate our collective imaginative potential and to diversify our tapestry of voices. At once critically-minded and intuitive, I strive to create work that vibrates long after the words have been spoken. I am particularly drawn to projects which champion women, bend artistic boundaries, and reinvent thoughtfully.
