She quickly ended up back on stage, performing Off-Broadway and in the national tour of STOMP.

IndieWire said, "[Unlovable] has plenty going for it... but it's most appealing because of the full-force charm and talent of its leading lady, Charlene deGuzman... She's also just plain wonderful to watch, deGuzman is a star in the making."
