Lacretta Talks About Creating Her Own Character As The Bailor In Night Court | Exclusive

Within the ensemble of the revival sitcom Night Court is the comedian Lacretta. The actress steps into the bailiff’s shoes as Donna “Gurgs” Gurgabous.

The Synopsis 

The eternally optimistic Abby Stone (Melissa Rauch, “The Big Bang Theory”) follows in the footsteps of her revered late father, Judge Harry Stone, as she takes on the challenge of overseeing the night shift of a Manhattan arraignment court. Abby always sees the best in people and her passion for justice is undeniable. In her quest to bring order and dignity to the court and reign in its colorful crew of oddballs, she enlists former night court district attorney Dan Fielding (John Larroquette, “Night Court” 1984-1992) to serve as the court’s public defender. Still exceedingly self-confident, Fielding must adjust to a new boss and a new job – defending the downtrodden. And, beneath his arrogant demeanor, there is an empathetic side to Fielding that Abby is determined to unearth.

The Kansas City native, Lacretta started her career in the theater world at the age of 14. Coterie Theater was her home during the 90s while being part of several plays like A Wrinkle In Time and 101 Dalmatians. And expanded to doing a national tour with The Book of Mormon. Although she is known for screen projects like Law & Order, Gotham and Second Act with Jennifer Lopez she continues doing theater.
