Like many creatives, I was navigating the virtual and audio space during the pandemic. I had been in-talks with my Talent Managers at Bohemia Group to develop a full Audio Drama Series and have Philly Chick Pictures and I produce a project, while still quarantining, to keep me creatively inspired. I greatly appreciated Curt’s writing talents and was impressed with his expertise in Sound Effects. Curt had pitched me a few fantastic storyline ideas, I fell in love with A Voice In Violet, and we began our production development process in the fall of 2021. We spent ample time fleshing out this series and assembling the necessary components. I was blessed to have Casting Director, Alison Buck, sign-on to help me cast our talented Actors (I had dreamed of!) Bronson Pinchot, Nikki Blonsky, and Nelson Lee (Thank you, Kat Seigworth!), then I had to have my talented friends and associates, Eric Etebari and Wilson Jermaine Heredia, onboard, as their roles were written for them, along with songs from my darling Diva Songstress Fawn, and score from the wild musical mind of Composer Michael Trapp. We truly assembled a dream cast, as well as keeping our commitment to diverse and inclusive character development and casting. As an Actress, I loved playing Violet so very much. Curt wrote this role perfectly for me and I had so much fulfillment finding the layers of this character throughout the audio series. I only hope the narrative audio podcast fans and listeners are entertained by A Voice In Violet." - Brooke Lewis Bellas"It has been a thrill creating in the audio space, and with our talented cast who truly elevated the words off the page. Many thanks to Brooke Lewis Bellas for bringing this project together." - Curt WiserA Voice In Violet releases on multiple podcast platforms in 2023.
