Vivian is so excited to be back in Cleveland and to be a part of “Dawg Pounded.” After graduating from Cleveland State University, Vivian moved to Los Angeles while performing in Kaiser Permanente’s national touring children’s show “Professor Bodywise.” While in L.A., she was very active writing, directing and acting in a wide variety of productions. Some of her favorites roles include Kate in “The Taming of the Shrew,” Madame Zelda the fortune-telling psychic in “Murder at the Mansion,” and portraying Mrs. Claus on Hollywood Boulevard. Vivian was also cast as the first female Emcee at Universal Studios Hollywood, hosting the “Star Trek” Adventure. Since returning to Cleveland last year, Vivian directed “Amelia’s Alive” for CPT’s 2014 Pandemonium event, portrayed Oona Blind Eyebrite in the Tower City Christmas show “Kringle’s Inventionasium,” conjured spells as Mammy in “Wiley and the Hairy Man” at Brecksville’s Theater on the Square, and worked as a standardized patient with the Cleveland Clinic. She has also started her own entertainment company, TheVaudevillePlayers.com. She would like to dedicate her performances in “Dawg Pounded” to her daughters, her mom and family, and most of all to her dear Dad, Warren, who was a devoted Browns fan for over 50 yrs.
Miss you, Dad!
