Get to Know Martha Plimpton with 10 Fun Facts You Probably Don't Know About Her Already (Exclusive)

Martha Plimpton is a beloved Emmy-winning actress best known for her work in TV shows like Raising Hope, The Real O’Neals and The Good Wife, but she’s also an activist who found the nonprofit A is For.

A is For, which Martha co-founded with Kellie Overbey, is a small nonprofit organization that was created to de-stigmatize abortion through the arts, and we offer financial support to abortion-providing services.

This weekend, Martha is hosting Broadway Acts for Abortion at 54 Below. A star-studded group of talent including Kelli O’Hara, John Cameron Mitchell, Ann Dowd, Carrie Preston, Michael Emerson, Bonnie Milligan, and more are coming together to raise money and awareness for abortion rights. The event is on Sunday (October 1) at 6:30pm!

Ahead of the event, we caught up with Martha to learn some fun facts about her that most fans probably don’t know. Check them out below!

  1. I co-created A is For alongside my dear friend Kellie Overbey to create a space for artists to stand up for reproductive rights, and dismantle the stigma surrounding abortion care. To date, we’ve donated 250k to abortion providers and fund across the country, built programs like our one act playwriting contest, and each year we throw what everyone has said is the most exciting benefit of the year, Broadway Acts for Abortion.
  2. In 2018 I traveled to Africa and studied tracking in Botswana and South Africa for one month. It was the most profound and life-changing experience of my life. I slept in a tent with elephants and leopards sauntering past all night. I passed my exam at the top of my class. I can’t wait to go back.
  3. I’ve driven across the U.S. in pretty much every direction nearly twenty times. I’ve driven through every state in the union, except Hawaii and Alaska. I recently purchased an Airstream trailer, and plan to keep on doing it! Maybe Alaska next summer?
  4. I’ve had abortions and I’m not afraid to say so. I’m very fortunate to have had access to the medical care I needed, when I needed it. EVERYONE should have that access. Abortion is healthcare.
  5. When I was nominated for an Emmy Award for Raising Hope, all of the nominated actresses (myself, Amy Poehler, Melissa McCarthy, Tina Fey, Edie Falco, Laura Linney) got together and walked on stage as our names were called, like at the Miss America pageant. When Melissa McCarthy won, she got a tiara and a bouquet of roses. I think it’s still one of the funniest moments in an awards show ever and I’m so proud of all of us for pulling it off.

'Drag Race' Star Willam Joins 'Titanique' Musical - Exclusive First Photos Revealed!

RuPaul’s Drag Race alum Willam has joined the cast of the Off-Broadway musical Titanique and we have the first photos of the star on stage as Victor Garber!

Willam is best known for appearing on season four of Drag Race back in 2012 and for making a memorable appearance in Lady Gaga‘s A Star Is Born movie.

Titanique is billed as an “irresistibly funny and irreverent new musical send-up of the blockbuster film Titanic, featuring the songs of pop icon Celine Dion.”

Here is the official synopsis: “Want to find out what really happened to Jack and Rose on that fateful night? Just leave it to Céline Dion to casually hijack a Titanic Museum tour and enchant the audience with her totally wild take, recharting the course of Titanic’s beloved moments and characters with her iconic song catalog.”

Willam joined the cast as Victor Garber in early September and comedian Drew Droege also just joined cast in the role of Ruth.

“Boarding Titanique has been nothing but smooth sailing, and that’s probably from all the wonderful Celine Dion music we’re privileged to sing each night,” Willam said in a statement. “This boat is stocked with quintuple-threat performers who are CPR-certified due to the fact that audiences are constantly gagging at the hilarity – and how cold the drinks are from hitting an iceberg every night! Captaining this shit eight times a week is a joy, and a decade after Drag Race, I finally get to prove that my boat IS pretty, and my boat is the best.”

Titanique is being performed at the Daryl Roth Theatre in New York City’s Union Square. Get tickets now!

  1. I’m an Eagle Scout. Let’s go camping! But somewhere with no mosquitoes. Mosquitoes love me.
  2. I have a scar from the Rose Bowl! Apparently, I was squirming in my mom’s arms at our first (and last) football game and I smacked into the chair in front of us. I would go to the ER two more times as a kid because of head injuries. It’s a wonder that I have a solo show memorized in there.
  3. I graduated high school at the age of 16. I didn’t get my drivers license until after I graduated!
  4. When I was in high school, I voluntarily put myself in conversion therapy. I don’t recommend it. I do recommend therapy-therapy.
  5. I waited tables and bartended for over seven years in New York City, even after I was appearing on a TV show.

Get to Know Madisyn Shipman with These 10 Fun Facts & Watch Her 'Jill' Music Video!

Former Nickelodeon actress Madisyn Shipman has launched a music career and her new single is out now!

The 20-year-old singer and actress is best known for playing Kenzie Bell in the hit series Game Shakers and her other credits include The Peanuts Movie and Ordinary World.

Madisyn just dropped her new song “Jill,” which marks her fourth song to be released this summer in preparation for the release of her upcoming album.

We chatted with Madisyn to get to know her and learned 10 Fun Facts. Check them out below!

  1. I’m very into personal development. I went to my first UPW before COVID and I attribute a lot of my growth to having a strong mindset. I’m constantly working on being the best version of myself. My mentor Traci Porterfield is a strong vessel in holding me accountable.
  2. My debut album will have 21 songs on it in honor of my 21st birthday. All of my songs are written from my own personal experiences so I thought it was only fitting to do 21 songs for this release just in time for my birthday!
  3. I made a 6 song EP when I was 9 about living in New York and being from a small town.
  4. My family relationship is my greatest strength. I think it’s so important to have an open and honest relationship with your family. My mom is definitely my best friend, I tell her everything. Family is everything. I can’t wait to be a wife and mother one day!
  5. Growing up I was obsessed with Anne Frank. I think the main reason I was drawn to her story was the fact we were around the same age and she documented her life in a journal the same way I have for many years. I’ve read and watched every Anne Frank related show, movie or book. I actually took a trip to Amsterdam a few years ago to visit the Anne Frank house but it was closed due to covid. Definitely need to plan another trip soon!
