YOU CAN LEARN ABOUT MY PLAYWRITING at  As their website explains, "Doollee is an online database of playwrights and theatre plays. As an ongoing project we aim to list every play written or produced in English since 1956, the year John Osborne's seminal play Look Back in Anger was first performed at the Royal Court in London. We add submitted information to the site daily and all contributions we receive help make this the most meaningful and definitive guide to modern playwrights in the world."

      It's likely that everyone in this shot --  not just me -- has less hair now than we did when the photo was taken -- in the 1990s in the yard of Tim Considine's house, where we were celebrating his birthday. From left:  Lonnie, Tim Considine, Steve Stevens (agent), Tommy Kirk, David Stollery.

In January, 2007 a stranger knocked at our abode. 

Joining our family before her fourth month, Asta Astaire is a stunning, tiny kitten.

She is a "tuxedo" cat with long white whiskers. She also has four white paws and a large white splash at her throat, all of which accent her black fur with dark brown highlights seemingly created by a Beverly Hills hair and fur stylist.

She is named Astaire because she cavorts, jetées and dashes back and forth like Fred, who also wore a tuxedo and made his name in black and white films!!!!


Her lap bear is named Thomas Stearns Eliot who is not a poet but is very comfortable.

  • If you haven't already - check out Before & After MMC for a biography, vintage photos  and resume of the very early performing I did (1948-1955) before the MMC, including an Oscar winning film, a few TV "classics" and a commercial that many of the 50+ gang may remember. My latest acting/writing/choreographic and directing credits are here as well. Another memory lane trip is Scrapbook.  

  • You might want to look at Special Offers for the new DOUBLE DVD!  3+ hours including scads of things you've never seen before! Give someone else (or yourself) a mouseka-present. All items personally signed - unless you don't want me to (NOT signing costs extra (:--)) ! ) 

  • The Roll Call page has room to include your e-mail address so I can contact you if there is "breaking news" about me or any of the MMC gang and so you can contact each other.  

  • Finally, if you want to correspond with me, but  don't want to share your e-mail address with other fans, I can be reached at Lonniemmcataoldotcom.  It's written that way to avoid spam; change the at to @ and dot to .
