Currently, Denise is starring in the Tennesee Williams play ORPHEUS DESCENDING at the Theatre/Theatre in Los Angeles with outstanding reviews. To quote one recent review, "Denise Crosby as Lady personifies grace under pressure with languid fluidity. Crosby is simply a joy to watch. From the tired, aged beauty and victim of circumstances to the saucy, confident heroine in the third act, Crosby never tips her hand. With magnificent self-restraint and a quiet, simmering confidence, Crosby owns the stage…simply put—this is her show and she radiates even from the shadows like a single flame".

Denise CrosbyDenise has also worn a different hat as Producer and Host of the feature documentary "TREKKIES" released by Paramount Pictures. The film reteams her with director Roger Nygard who directed her in the Indie comedy "HIGH STRUNG", written by comedian Steve Oedekerk. They have also worked together on the sequel, "TREKKIES 2" currently out on Paramount Home Video.
Denise currently resides in L.A. with her husband, writer Ken Sylk and their 11 year old son, Augie, along with 3 golldfish, 2 cats, and a very sweet Basset Hound named Clementine.
