Taryn Manning, Pennsatucky From ‘Orange is the New Black,’ to Sign Autographs, DJ at Mohegan Sun

Los Angeles Times

Pennsatucky may be an inmate in Litchfield Prison, but luckily it won't take going into lockup to see the woman behind the religious zealot from "Orange is the New Black."

You can meet actress Taryn Manning, who plays the character on the popular Emmy-nominated Netflix series, right here in Connecticut at Mohegan Sun on Halloween. 

You can get her autograph at the Signings and Sightings event, starting at 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 31, followed by a live question and answer session at 10 p.m. in The Shops concourse at Mohegan, where you can ask her everything you've been dying to know about playing Pennsatucky.

The break-out role might be how Manning is known, but she is also a dancer who is classically trained and a clothing designer with her own line, Born Unique.

She's also a recognized musician who has a solo artist and DJ career. She'll be doing a DJ set at the Vista Lounge at Mohegan Sun later in the evening, so you can hear her music for yourself.

Her song, "Send Me Your Love" previously topped the Billboards Dance charts, according to her website. Her remake of "Rip Her to Shreds" with her her brother Kellin Manning as a member of the electronic and pop duo Boomkat is heard in the opening of the movie, "Mean Girls," according to her website. Eminem licensed her single "Wastin' My Time" for "8 Mile" and her song, "The Wreckoning" was in the opening to "The Italian Job," according to her website. You can also hear her solo tracks on The CW's "Melrose Place" and "Hawaii 5-0," her website bio states.

The event is first-come, first-served, so get there early.

Due to the time constraints of the event, Manning won't be able to sign personalized messages or take photographs with fans' personal cameras. However, her headshots will be available.

Organizers will hand out bracelets at the venue starting at 8 p.m. and there will only be a limited number given out. You have to have a bracelet to get into the line for her autograph.
