Dianne grew up a Valley Girl in Southern California, graduated from UCLA, and moved to New York to pursue a career in musical theatre. Well… a funny thing happened on the way to fame and fortune. Her only role on Broadway was as a waitress at the Saloon restaurant at 64th & Broadway. Undaunted, Dianne downshifted to try summer theatre.
After performing on stages from Manhattan to Monrovia she returned to LA and began her career as an agent. Today she is a partner in well-established management/production company, Industry Entertainment. She has also returned to her roots in musical theatre, recently co-producing the musical GLIMPSES OF THE MOON in the Oak Room of New York’s Algonquin Hotel.
Dianne is married to writer Jeff Cohn, who has written the special comedy material for her show PART TIME DIVA. They live in Studio City with their two children, Andrew and Hayley.
