In addition to having originated several roles in new plays that you’ve never heard of… Terri is also a stand up comedian having worked at most of the clubs in New York City. As a comic, she was a host for Good Morning America’s “All Night Long” series, and featured in the VH1 programs “Robbing the Cradle” & “Hot Babes, Ugly Guys”. Most memoriable gig? A live industrial where the line up consisted of only Terri, General Colin Powell and The Brian Setzer Orchestra… Terri is unbelievably grateful to Michael & Phil for their continued support in making this show happen.

is thrilled to continue working on Last Call after two critically acclaimed runs in South Florida. Always in the studio, he has lots of records coming out in the next year, but nobody that you’ve heard of… yet. Phil has been in the trenches working with bands for over a decade — producing, engineering, playing guitar/bass, touring, mixing FOH, etc — most notably engineering on Radio 4’s Gotham, Stealing of a Nation and Enemies Like This. And over the last few years, his star’s been rising. He produced/engineered on The New Pornographers albums Challengers and Together, A.C. Newman’s album Get Guilty, and has been working through a whirlwind of back-to-back projects ever since, with Neko Case, Okkervil River, The Bogmen, Bird of Youth, Ted Leo and the new New Pornographers. In 2010, his work with Neko Case on her album ‘Middle Cyclone’ granted him two Grammy nominations for Best Contemporary Folk Album, and Best Recording Package. In theatre, he was the sound designer on “Escape from Bellevue: A Rock and Roll Odyssey” written and performed by Christopher Campion, and ran to sold out houses at the Village Theatre in the heart of Greenwich Village.
