If you're looking to write and direct a web series sensation based on the lives of actors in New York City, you should probably know a thing or two about
acting. Kate Wetherhead, co-creator and star of hit comedy web series “Submissions Only”, knows more than a thing or two. She has appeared in hit Broadway musicals like Legally Blonde and the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee as well as Off-Broadway productions of The Other Josh Cohen and Ordinary Days. In “Submissions Only”, Wetherhead plays Penny Reilly, a struggling actor and eternal optimist faced with the intimidating world of Broadway. In reality, Kate isn't struggling (anymore, at least), but she is an eternal optimist. This week, we are thrilled to get this woman of many talents On the Couch!
