Judith F. Bradshaw

When you are inspired by some great purpose,

some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds;

Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction,

and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world.

Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.

This just in...

I ended 2018 with 2 days in December on a Short Film

It's Not All About You 

Played the mom, Monica...Moms have become my "thing" it seems!

In November I had the thrill of joining Carlos Dengler (AKA Carlos D. previously of Interpol) on his festival bound short film.  He is an inspiring artist...an energizer bunny creating, creating, creating...so inspiring. Was happy to take even a small part!  Yes, this was another "mom".

I have been facilitating, and participating in, the Writers Forum ( for Grad Acting Alumni) every 3rd Monday of the month... we have created a safe place where alumni of NYU Grad Acting can bring work and hear it read/get feedback...all at a distance from the marketplace.

I had the fun of once again joining the 

Studio Tisch Summer Cabaret and Soire

It was a joy to mix with these talented people.

This summer I joined

SHE COLLECTIVE a dynamic community of women who work in theater/film/TV created by Erica Jensen (Calleri Casting) with Dani Super.  If you are interested in more info send an email via this website and I will connect you to them!!

May/June I took on one of the most demanding and complicated characters I have had the opportunity to explore to date!  Catherine, in the new play "The Fragrance the Violet Sheds" by Steven Sandler, has pushed the boundaries of what a "loving" mother should do and...well, I don't want to say too much...it was directed by the amazing India Marie Paul.  Here's hoping audiences will be coming to see it soon (but as with most workshops, we wait...we wait patiently - or not!).

In February 2018 I joined the cast of a new musical:

 "Henry (Box) Brown "

Directed by Tony winner Ben Harney 

It was a fabulous opportunity and the show has headed off to Edinburgh Fringe Fest!  I was honored to work on this piece and bid the show a hale and hearty, "Break a leg!" (why didn't you go, too?  Alas, Actors Equity rules prevented me from participating further.)

An interview for Backstage!  Thank you Linnea Sage!
