Kathleen Antonia Tarr
Kathleen Antonia Tarr has been a professional performer for over ten years. Although best recognized for her commercial work, Kathleen Antonia’s credits include stage, film, television, and new media. Also a singer, she appears on numerous albums from country to opera to dance including her own CD of jazz standards, “Next Time”.
A Harvard Law School graduate, Kathleen practiced law in California for six years as a civil and human rights attorney, her first two years serving as a Skadden Fellow in what the Los Angeles Times describes as “a legal Peace Corps”.
She left legal practice for a career in entertainment, recognizing that media often has a greater impact on popular thought and behavior than law. An eternal activist, she continues working for equal justice: as media advocate for WenHoLee.org in the successful campaign to free Dr. Lee from incarceration; as a presenter on a San Francisco Bar Association’s racial profiling panel with then District Attorney Terence Hallinan; and speaker at Oakland City Hall’s Proposition 8 press conference “Day After Day Of Decision”.
Kathleen is also a published writer, cited by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeal for her law review article “Above and Beyond” and frequently reviewed for her non-fiction contributions to “That Takes Ovaries!”. She is currently in post-production on “Getting Played”, her documentary about discrimination in the entertainment industry. Additionally, Kathleen tutors K-12 and college students in mathematics, reading, writing, and SAT preparation. Visit her YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/WhatTheProducer.
