In addition, she has worked with theater companies like Marin Shakespeare Company, Bike City Theatre Company, and Davis Shakespeare Festival. Playwriting, songwriting, and fantasizing about adapting musicals as though they were Shakespeare plays are Talia’s favorite pastimes. She is also an actor, singer, mediocre pianist, and food enthusiast.
