A graduate of Vassar College and the London Academy of Musical and Dramatic Arts, this classically-trained actress and singer also studied at Oxford University and at Carnegie Mellon. Her more serious roles have included "Titus" in an all-female production of Shakespeare's Titus Andronicus, "The Duchess of Malfi" in The Duchess of Malfi, and "Masha" in The Three Sisters, all performed at the MacOwen Theatre in London - but - she has also played the female lead in Pippin, "Joanne" in Company, "Joann" in Godspell, "Reno Sweeney" in Anything Goes, "Adelaide" in Guys and Dolls, and "Helga" in Cabaret in companies in the US. She played "Mrs. Malaprop" in The Rivals, a restoration comedy directed by Norman Ayrton, and played the mezzo-soprano and five other acting roles in Ecstatic Journey, a multi-media opera at the American Opera Project in New York City composed by David Rodwin, who recently performed his one-man opera, Virtual Motion, her in LA. Ms. Robinson has also had TV roles on Ellen and Murder One, played the female lead in See No Evil, an independent film screened at the New York Stage and Screen Festival, and has performed "in studio" for a number of soundtracks and demo recordings. Inspired by the cabaret performances of Betty Buckley, Bernadette Peters, Bette Midler, and Andrea Marcovicci, her program features jazz, blues, and standards, and lays the foundation for an anticipated one-woman show.
