— Neil Gaiman

You know Jamie Donnelly from her double-wide smile and champagne personality. A veteran actress of stage, television, and movies, Jamie is a bonafide cult figure for not one but two major 20th century cultural events: The original "Rocky Horror Show", both at the Roxy in Los Angeles and on Broadway with Tim Curry, in which she coined the roles of Trixie and Magenta, and "Grease" on Broadway and in the movie with John Travolta and Olivia Newton John in which she played Jan,

the "brusha brusha" Pink Lady.

Jamie resides in Westkill, New York - she's a Catskills local!
