When I mentioned her stage work, I was merely pointing out the fact that the stage is 'acting without a safety net'. On stage, there aren't human props for actors/actresses. It's your job to portray that character effectively. Granted, that's the stage and the CSI:NY is written with inconsistencies in her character from week to week, but I'd imagine an actress who touts a Masters andBachelors in ACTING would be doing a better job. But, I guess that's just me. I'm sure that no one would dare equate her to Patrick Stewart or any of the other people who started out on stage. Hell, Keanu Reeves starred as MacBeth once. (Not sure if that applies here, but people love/hate his acting. ) I'm just wondering how someone bases her collegiate education on that art, get into acting and stink so badly.
