Well, this year sure has gotten away from me! Busy times yield fewer updates! Here's what has kept me so preoccupied...
MOMS THESE DAYS
A little "short film" for a little car brand from Michigan... this one is for all the busy, beautiful, amazing moms out there!
As always, don't be a stranger on the Instagram! Have a wonderful, blessed, & safe summer!
What an autumn!! Here are a few projects I've been working on...
TOP PHOTOGRAPHER WITH NIGEL BARKER
I had to keep a few secrets this fall, but now I can finally share this! Click below to see my appearance on Nigel Barker's photography competition, Top Photographer. We filmed courtesy of ADORAMA at the ultra-hip Paper Factory Hotel in Long Island City--have a look for yourself!
And finally...are you unsure what to do with leftover turkey and trimmings this coming weekend? Check out my hands (& their friends!) in our cute little ad!
As always, let's stay connected on Instagram (@NoreenEddy)!
...wishing you and yours a safe and blessed holiday!
Hello and HAPPY SUMMER! Here's the latest!
Catch my smiling mug on pages for fashion and beer, and the other (longer) half of me in an online catalog. How many Noreen-halves, -parts, and -wholes can you find? Gotta catch 'em all...but you won't find any in Central Park, you crazy kids!
NOREEN - HANDS...
...for a national COFFEE brand! Anyone who knows me well, knows how much I love coffee! What a joyful day! Check out the awesome stop-motion work by the production team here! I'm the model-in-the-middle starting at :21.
I just enjoyed a fabulous shoot for a well-known website, playing a happy wife and homeowner. My "husband" and I even bought a new roof! Special thanks to the good folks in Boston for the fabulous stay! All the while, I continue training with Ken Schatz (technique) and at UCB (improv). Bring on the summertime shoots!
Until next time, be safe, stay cool, and... CHEERS!
It's been way.too.long. since my last update. Best excuse ever? You'll have to keep reading to find out why I was so distracted!
Here is a quick wrap-up of my latest work:
THE ROLE OF A LIFETIME
Shortly after Christmas, I became Mrs. Eddy! Derek and I are happily dancing through life together.
Until next time, catch me on Instagram (@NoreenEddy), Twitter (@NoreenHughes), or right here on my site!
It has been a WHIRLWIND of sunny days and summer breezes! Here's my latest work!
It was such a joy to work with Prestige Jewelry Club on their cable and online show during the month of June! I got a full education on gems, diamonds, and all kinds of beautiful sparkles. If you enjoy jewelry, check out an online episode here!
Well, thank Heaven for chirping birds, bursting sunshine, and even those pesky pollen allergies... spring is finally here! My latest highlights....
GOOD MORNING AMERICA
I had a great time modeling on ABC's Good Morning America last month! We showed looks from favorite TV shows on "How To Primetime Your Closet." I couldn't believe they let me represent Sofia Vergara's character, Gloria, from Modern Family. Here's a still, or watch the whole segment here!
We had a great day shooting a new App promo - watch "Custom Automation in No Time" at the bottom of this page. I played another lovely wife!
And, here's some more parts work for an online campaign for a well-known shoe brand! Very springtime :)
DANCERS OF NEW YORK...
...won big at the International Mobil Film Festival! Thanks to our fearless phenom videographer Tristan Pope, we took first prize in the fourth annual competition in California. In case you missed it, here's the link to watch!
UP NEXT.... BIG NEWS! (REALLY, REALLY BIG!)
I will step into the role of "Mrs." for the rest of my life - my sweetheart proposed, and I of course said yes! (insert smiley faces, silly hearts, and exclamation points... here.)
Let's have life, and have it abundantly!
...and I really do mean that!
It's been a busy and wonderful year... here's what's happening!
ENRON at the GARAGE THEATRE GROUP
It was a quirky and wonderful run of ENRON at the Garage Theatre Group in Teaneck, NJ. I had a great time playing news reporter Gayle Davenport, among five other characters. Being a part of this diverse ensemble of chameleons was an acting study all on its own! We played lawyers, analysts, raptors, mice, a barbershop quartet, the list is goes on... It was a trip to be part of Lucy Prebble's innovative play.
BRIDAL WEEK with CYMBELINE
I had the pleasure of modeling for Cymbeline Paris at this fall's NY Bridal Week (...no, I have no plans to get married right now!). Look who stopped by our booth - the gracious and wonderful Randy Fenoli, from TLC's Say Yes to the Dress!
I'm very happy to say that I am now working with MSA WOMEN. So far I have walked for Irina Shabayeva at the MacDella Cooper Fashion Benefit for Ebola, and for Montaha Couture at a Fashion 4 Development event. I am looking forward to a successful 2015 with this well reputed agency!
COMMERCIAL PRINT representation
I have also just begun working with ABBEY LYNN MODELS. Three cheers to this new agency - glad to be on the Lifestyle board!
There are lots of new additions to my portfolio, thanks to wonderful photographers Steven Menendez and Nuru Kimondo. More to come very soon....
Until next time, I wish you holidays that are merry and bright!
Well, here we go into my favorite season of the year! SO MUCH has been going on, and I'm thrilled to share it.
SINGIN' IN THE RAIN makes A SPLASH!
Well, the audiences and critics alike couldn't get enough of Singin' in the Rain at the Reagle Music Theatre - and neither could I! This show is one of the classics, the true gems, and boy did I have the time of my life as Lina Lamont. It was a privilege and pleasure to work with the brilliant Kirby Ward, our incomparable director, as well as a wonderful cast and crew..
What did the critics have to say?
"But perhaps the most difficult and demanding role in the show... [is] that of Lamont, the silent movie star with the determinedly off-key speaking and singing voice whose career is threatened by the emergence of 'the talkies.' It requires acting chops, strong comedic timing, concentration in staying off-key, and the ability to stay in character while putting over a number such as 'What’s Wrong With Me?' and Hughes is spot-on in her performance."
Rich Fahey, On Boston Stages
"Willing to do anything for a laugh, Noreen Hughes portrays blond celebrity bombshell Lina Lamont. She is gawky, shrill, and cunning, her lanky body, stature, and wild eyes make for a perfect Lina as she bellows out an added song not included in the film version, ‘What’s Wrong With Me.’"
Jeanne Denizard, Boston Performing Arts Examiner (five stars!)
"Hughes got plenty of laughs as the screechy Lina."
Joel Brown, The Boston Globe
"Hughes’ Lina Lamont is not someone with whom you want a romance, but Hughes brings much humor and credibility to the self-interested and imposing villainess. With legs for days, Hughes could easily just be a pretty face, but she is willing to give her Lina so many dislikeable qualities that the character becomes a humorously conflicting character. Her “What’s Wrong With Me?” is a star-turn of purposely screeching vocals juxtaposed with her gorgeous body and movements."
Brian Balduzzi, My Entertainment World
TRISTAN POPE PHOTOGRAPHY
I just had the pleasure and privilege of working with brilliant dance and fashion photographer Tristan Pope on a beautiful video, "Dancers of New York." Featuring a myriad of NYC dancers and styles, this video was shot entirely using apps and features of the new iPhone 6. The full YouTube page details Tristan's approach and techniques, for anyone interested. Enjoy!
UP NEXT: ENRON
Next up, I'll be part of the mad ensemble of ENRON at the Garage Theatre Group in Teaneck, NJ. Rehearsals start tomorrow and I am looking forward to seeing this neat play on its feet!
Until next time, I wish you warm apple ciders, cozy sweaters, and crunchy leaves under your feet...!
LONG OVERDUE UPDATE! How on earth is it July already??
A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM
I couldn't have had a better time as Hippolyta in the Storm Theatre's production of A Midsummer Night's Dream, which played May 30 - June 14. What a brilliant, hilarious cast that grew night after night! Here's a pair of production photos:
I had the pleasure once again of shooting with the wonderful Taylor Hooper. We tackled the "straight hair headshot" - many of which are now on my main and print pages. Which do you prefer, curly or straight?
SPECK CANDY AMP COMMERCIAL
Keep your eyes peeled on the internet for a new commercial for Speck Candy Amp phone cases. I play a sleepy, eye-rolling office employee..... it was a stretch. ;) Footage coming soon!
SINGIN' IN THE RAIN
I am super excited to announce that I will be playing Lina Lamont at the Reagle Music Theatre in their August production of Singin in the Rain! I am currently up to my ears in preparing my voice for this role, and feel very sorry for all of my neighbors listening nearby.....
Wishing you perfect summer sunsets, icy cold beverages, and magical fireflies to light your sky...!
BASTARD BLOOD with SYBIL LINES
Next up to bat - a showcase production of Bastard Blood at Broadway Presbyterian on April 25, May 2, and May 3! This production chronicles the War of the Roses, beginning after the death of King Henry V and carrying through Richard III. I will be portraying both Eleanor Cobham and Alice Chaucer in this immersive theatrical experience. Our fearless creator and director, Sybil Lines (formerly of the Royal Shakespeare Company), has woven together Shakespeare's timeless words to illustrate the history of the struggle for the crown of England.
A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM
On deck - it is a springtime full of the Bard for me, as I am thrilled to be cast as Hippolyta in the Storm Theatre's upcoming production of A Midsummer Night's Dream! Performances begin May 30... details forthcoming!
Check out my print page for a few additions in the fitness department, and also some recent updates to my MSA Models page!
But my favorite role in my life so far... is "Auntie Noreen." My brother and his wife welcomed a baby girl into the world in January. My niece is an inspiration and a beauty! What a blessing!
Until next time... Enjoy SPRING! PLAY BALL!
Find Noreen on...
