Kate Forbes
           Kate            Forbes

Gifted narrator Kate Forbes is a professionally trained actor who has appeared on Broadway, in regional theaters, and with a renowned touring company.

After graduating from Sarah Lawrence College, where she was active in theater, Kate completed an M.F.A. at New York University School of the Arts. With this training, she launched into a successful acting career. In her first role, she played Lady Peazle in a Broadway production of School for Scandal. Her stunning performance earned her a Theater World Award for an outstanding Broadway debut. Her other Broadway roles have also been impressive. Kate has played opposite George C. Scott in Inherit the Wind and Julie Harris in Scent of the Roses.

Kate has appeared in many regional theaters. Among her favorite roles she lists Kyra in Skylight at the Playmaker’s Rep, Stella in A Streetcar Named Desire at the Dallas Theater Center, and Henriette in The Learned Ladies at the McCarter.

This talented actor feels that one of the highlights of her career was the two years she spent touring with The Acting Company, which has been staging plays across the country since 1971. During her years with the company, Kate played two critical leading roles: Nora in A Doll’s House and Desdemona in Othello.

In 1998, at the urging of The Acting Company’s director, Kate sent a sample narration tape to Claudia Howard, Recorded Books’ studio manager. Claudia was impressed; she called Kate in for an audition, and soon Kate was behind the Recorded Books microphone. To date, she has narrated such popular Recorded Books titles as Sidney Sheldon’s The Sky Is Falling and Robert Morgan’s Gap Creek.

Average Narrator Rating: 4.57 (See Reviews Below.)

fiveStar.jpg HEART WARMING
(Review of Kate Forbes narrating Morning Glory)
One of the most delightful books I have read/listened to in a very, very long time!! Wonderfully wirtten and equally well read. - Reviewer from NJ, USA


fourStar.jpg Well done
(Review of Kate Forbes narrating Whisker of Evil)
Some people may find the animals talking enchanting, I must admit I am not one of them. I had to overcome my difficulty with this aspect of these stories. Fortunately the plot and human characters were strong enough for me to hang in there and Im glad I did. The authors manage to combine equine breeding lineage, small town country living with diverse and interesting characters and their beloved animals into a well told mystery both old and new. I enjoyed it enough to try another in the series. - Reviewer from after 50 years in NJ now in MT


fourStar.jpg Truly one of the best books I’ve read
(Review of Kate Forbes narrating Redeeming Love)
I have recommended this book to many of my friends, and their response is always the same . . . Wonderful, heart warming, powerful. This book will leave you you with such a warm feeling inside. It is a Must Read for inspirational fiction fans. - Reviewer from Tennessee
