ORFEH (MRS. WASSERSTEIN) cont'd.

A hit from London, the stage version of the John Travolta disco film classic, Saturday Night Fever (1977), arrived on Broadway, featuring Orfeh as Tony Manero's jilted sidekick, "Annette". Critics singled her out for her powerhouse rendition of the disco smash, "If I Can't Have You", in the first act. Orfeh met her future husband Andy Karl during "Saturday Night Fever."

 

Orfeh and Andy appeared onstage together again in "Legally Blonde" - she as Elle's hairdresser friend "Paulette" and he as "Kyle," the UPS man who steals Paulette's heart. Orfeh received a Best Featured Actress Tony nomination for her performance in "Legally Blonde".

 

On TV, Orfeh's played a tough chick from Staten Island on Sex and the City (1998), a sassy secretary on Chappelle's Show (2003) and a grieving widow on Law & Order: Criminal Intent (2001). She was also seen on the big screen in Julie Taymor's movie musical, Across the Universe (2007), and can also be heard on the soundtrack, backing up music legend Joe Cocker on The Beatles classic, "Come Together".

 

Orfeh balances her acting and singing work with a career as one of the top voice-over artists around.

 

Orfeh continues to work on her music and released her debut solo CD, "What Do You Want From Me", on Sh-K-Boom/Ghostlight records. The CD is available everywhere in stores and online, now.
