I joined the military and made the Sundance film festival and also Broadway 


From Sundance Channel:


BIG STORM: THE LYNNDIE ENGLAND STORY

directed by Twan Huys
2005 - 39 mins - Color

Nudity, Adult Content

Photos of her smile and thumbs-up gesture taken at Iraq’s notorious Abu Ghraib prison are now known around the world as the face of American abuse. In a rare extended interview recorded shortly before her court martial, US reservist soldier Lynndie England tells how a gullible small-town girl from West Virginia found herself at the center of an international scandal. Dutch filmmaker Twan Huys’s disturbing film also features interviews with journalist Seymour Hersh, Paul Bremmer, former Brigadier General Janice Karpinski and England’s family.



A short video clip from the film is available here.

But the story doesn't stop there. From New York Theatre Guide:


The Culture Project Company presents Guardians, by Peter Morris, opening at the Culture Project on the 11 Apr 2006, following previews from the 1 Apr and running through to the 25 May 2006

Guardians: A two-character monologue play - a fictional account inspired by prominent true scandals of the Iraq War: the Abu Ghraib/Lynndie England affair and the publication by the British paper The Daily Mirror of fake torture photos, which led to the resignation of its editor. This twin scandal and the eerie collision of Britain and America raise troubling questions about torture and accountability in the U.S. Army and the responsibility of journalists during wartime.

Guardians' cast, directed by Jason Moore, features Katherine Moennig (American girl) and Lee Pace (English boy).



And she gets letters:

Lynndie England
c/o Naval Consolidated Brig Miramar
46141 Miramar Way, Suite 1
P.O. Box 452135
San Diego, California 92145-2135

Dear Lynndie,

I’m sorry if this sounds a bit cranky, it really isn’t supposed to be, but I think you owe all of us an explanation about what went on over there in Iraq. I guess I’ll just cut right to the chase and ask the question that all of America is asking: What the hell were you guys thinking?

On the bright side, I think you can put this all behind you and I don’t think your life has to be ruined because of it. People screw up all the time and I think most people understand that you weren’t really running the show over there.

That’s about it for today. I hope you will write back.

Sincerely,
Reverend Rich

P.S. I read about your burns and I hope that you are going to be okay.



Maybe she'll write Reverend Rich back. The Unabomber did. And Dr. Jack Kevorkian's jury consultant did.

Well, I did appear on Radio City Music Hall's stage once.

With a tour guide, during a tour of the facility. We also met a Rockette.

Although I've done theatre, I have not yet had a solo singing role.
