Her play, THE DIRECTOR, starring John Shea, ran Off-Broadway for over six months to critical and popular acclaim, and won "Recommended Play" status from The New York Times. FLORIDA GIRLS, Nancy's one-woman show, toured several states after its Off-Broadway run, and she continues to perform it around the country. Her most recent play, LAWNCHAIRS, was produced this season at Scranton's Electric Theatre Company.

Other New York productions include her one-woman show, YANKEE WOMEN (The Triad), Lady Macbeth in Shakespeare's MACBETH (William Redfield Theater), Mary in THE BOTTICELLI GAME (American Renaissance Theater).
