Coaching on a New Pilot: Spanish + Mexican Accent

on 21 April 2017.

Entertainment Weekly Praises My B'Way Debut

on 16 March 2017.

Entertainment Weekly lauded my work on the new Broadway musical, Come From Away: "...It feels right to give a rare shout-out to a dialect coach: Joel Goldes had performers skillfully switching in and out of Newfie speech, which sounds a bit like an Irish brogue by way of Fargo,)" as well as, "a Brit and a Texan...; and one cynical New Yorker who finds the hospitality to be suspect. There are Spanish-speakers and French-speakers and two Swahili-speakers terrified by the sight of volunteers in Salvation Army uniforms."
