Season 3: Episode 7: Sharon Lawrence Interview: Empowering Women Through Theatre

In This Episode

So honored that five-time Emmy Nominated actress Sharon Lawrence answered my call.

With a career that spans TV, Movies & Theatre, Sharon Lawrence has been entertaining audiences for over 30 years!

I have been a fan of Sharon’s since 1997 when she starred in her own NBC comedy series Fired Up (co-starring Leah Remini).

On Broadway, Sharon has been seen in the revivals of Cabaret, Fiddler on the Roof & Chicago.

Her TV/Film credits include NYPD Blue, Queen Sugar, Shameless, Dynasty, Rizzoli & Isles, Drop Dead Diva, One Tree Hill, Grey’s Anatomy, The Christmas House & The Christmas House 2: Deck Those Halls. Sharon just finished filming Season 2 of Spectrum’s Joe Pickett.

Next week, Sharon returns to NYC to star in Robin Gerber’s new play The Shot at the 2022 United Solo Festival.

In this interview Sharon pulls back the curtain to reveal:

  • How she got involved in Robin Gerber’s The Shot
  • How she prepares for such a demanding role
  • How she decompresses after a show
  • The boundaries she puts up when working
  • How The Shot can help those affected by domestic violence


The Shot is a work of fiction drawn from the story of former Washington Post publisher Katharine Graham. Before becoming publisher, Katharine was an abused wife, derided in public & beaten in private by her husband, who had inherited The Washington Post newspaper from Katharine’s father.

The Shot will play at Theatre Row in NYC for 3 performances only: 10/27, 10/28 & 11/2. Click here for tickets!
