“In this quirky comedy by Will Eno, we meet Bob and Jennifer and their new neighbors, John and Pony, two suburban couples who have even more in common than their identical homes and their shared last names. As their relationships begin to irrevocably intertwine, the Joneses must decide between their idyllic fantasies and their imperfect realities. Upon its Broadway premiere, The New York Times hailed The Realistic Joneses as “far and away the most stimulating, adventurous and flat-out good play to be produced on Broadway this year.”

One of Kate’s favorite venues in LA became home for a while to try out new songs. With the Philosopher’s Stone Poets, a non-profit poetry group, Kate performed her original songs and covers. Some favorites included ‘tearin up my heart’ by NSYNC and her original, ‘kingdom come.’

[originals: ‘the way’ + ‘aphrodite’ + ‘california wildfire’ + ‘big love’]

If there was ever a video designed to make the Internet explode from joy, this is it. Los Angeles actress and self-described "Harry Potter superfan" Kate Parkin posted a video on YouTube featuring a medley of Taylor Swift songs reworked with Hogwarts-related lyrics and sung from the point of view of J.K. Rowling characters Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley, Draco Malfoy, Luna Lovegood and, of course, the boy wizard himself. - The Los Angeles Times

YouTube genius Kate Parkin combined two great tastes that taste more than great together — Taylor Swift and Harry Potter, to be exact — to brew the perfect parody potion. -MTV

“Bad Blood,” meet Mudblood. That's thanks to enterprising YouTuber Kate Parkin, who took several of Taylor Swift's 1989 songs and changed the lyrics into a delightful mash-up touting the values of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. -Billboard

Among the talented cast, the young lovers particularly stand out: Kate Parkin as Helena...Parkin’s body language is wonderfully expressive and her denunciation of Hermia is particularly passionate. -Los Angeles Stage and Cinema, Midsummer Night's Dream at The Odyssey Theatre
