And with that, an email from Artistic Director Ava Roy followed, with a date set for our first speak-through of the text, off-book. I’m excited to be a part of this experience. If there’s one thing I was struck by when I saw it last year, it was the total immersion of the physical environment – the wind, mist, the bridge overhead, the sound of the sea, or traffic, depending on the conditions. Add to that one of the most fantastic challenges an actor can ask for – a brilliant cast and fierce dedication to the text. I can’t wait.
Tickets are now on sale for performances starting in late May 2014!
