The show received rave reviews and is is in development for a larger NYC run.

Schuyler is a prolific song writer and is constantly adding to her large catalog of original songs.  She wrote and recorded her first single, “I Am Today” at age 10, 100% of her proceeds from “I Am Today” go to pediatric cancer research.  A poet at heart, Schuyler is inspired by life around her and continues to develop in front of audiences as an actress, writer, guitarist, and humanitarian.
