  • Maine At Last

    I hope you're having a wonderful summer and beating the heat.

     Happy to be escaping New York City for Maine, where I can unwind and relax for a bit. My girls love the island, and Vinalhaven has always been a great source of inspiration for me as well as our shooting location for Islander.



    Stay tuned next month for our exciting news on Child of Grace!

     Thank you for all your continuing support.

  • Playing Iago In Theater for The New City's OTHELLO

    I also look forward to playing Iago in Othello next month at Theater for the New City (known familiarly as "TNC"), one of NYC's leading Off-Off-Broadway theaters. Known for its high artistic standards and widespread community service, TNC is a Pulitzer Prize-Winning theater and has won 43 Village Voice Obie Awards for theatrical excellence.

    Othello performances run May 13th-17th and their shows usually sell out quickly, so if you plan on going, please get your tickets now. To RSVP, email

    TNC is located in the East Village at 155 1st Avenue, between 9th&10th Ave. NYC 10003.

     Hope to see you there!


  • BIG Announcement!

    It is with profound joy that Noel and I announce the birth of our daughter, Vera Garcia Hildreth, born on March 7th at our home in NYC.

    Weighing 7lbs. 8oz., she's nursing and sleeping soundly through the night. Noel is resting comfortably.

    Her 2 year old brother, Lennox, wasn't quite sure what to make of her but her big sisters, 6 year old Aya and 4 year old Chiara were very excited to meet her.

    We all gathered around her at the kitchen table yesterday afternoon and she appeared to look about as if to say " what have I gotten myself into…?"

    Life baby…life.

    Please join us in welcoming Vera to our family.



  • Happy Valentine's Day

    Last week, I sent you an email announcement that you'll be receiving monthly updates from me. I wanted to remind you that if you wish to unsubscribe you can do so below. If not, stay for the next installment in March! 

    One of my goals is to collaborate with NYC talent reps. If you know a NYC agent or manager with whom I can share the premiere info for my new film "CHILD OF GRACE" (2015), that would be most welcome! Simply hit reply to this email and let me know. 

    Finally, I'm excited to announce that today at 4:00pm there will be reading of a new play by Dominic Hoffman, "Dinosaurs", for producers and investors at the Producer's Club in Midtown Manhattan! This witty four character comedy has been described as "Oscar Wilde for 2015." We expect to mount this exciting new work in NYC soon!


  • My exciting projects in 2015 with Sternman Productions

    It's a Happy 2015 New Year for Sternman Productions as we launch into 2 film projects in development , "The Cutting" and "The Invested", and as we prepare to mount the new play by Dominic Hoffman, "Dinosaurs", in NYC .

    Our 2014 baby, "Child of Grace", is in negotiations for distribution and soon I'll be making announcements on how and where to see the film in 2015.

    We are just in the process of securing an actress for our backers and producers reading in late January at the Producers Club in midtown NYC. Very exciting !  It's a fantastic part for a female lead and I'm looking forward to hearing the play again after a very receptive staged reading at the Electric Lodge in Los Angeles last summer.


    Stay tuned...
