Maryjane L. Baer (Daisy) is proud to be back performing at Shawnee, with Rebel Stages and sharing the stage with Brandon and Dan! Most recently she appeared in “Moon Over Buffalo” playing Charlotte for which she received a 2021 Broadway World Award. Over the years she has performed with several theater companies, including the St. Bart’s Players (NYC), the Town Players of New Canaan (CT) and last year in Baer Bones Productions staged reading of “Lettice and Lovage” (Lotte Schoen). Maryjane is looking forward to again playing Linda Loman in Side of the Road Theater's production of "Death of a Salesman" in late April. Bringing Daisy to life has been a wonderful experience. Thank you to Brandon and Jazzy for the opportunity and to Dr. Baer for his unending support!
