Two-time Tony Award winner Katie Finneran (Promises, Promises, Noises Off, TV's "I Hate My Teenage Daughter") will offer an acting and musical theatre performance master class today, April 27th from 6:30pm to 10:30pm at The Davenport Studios in Midtown Manhattan.
Katie Finneran has played Tony, Drama Desk, and Outer Critics Circle award-winning roles in Promises, Promises and Noises Off, and has carried that expertise to film and television, most recently starring in the FOX sitcom, "I Hate My Teenage Daughter."
