Funny you should mention it, because I mention it as one of my top picks in this week’s maxamoo! But yes, I am hoping to see it.
What happens when he’s your Romeo but you’re not his Juliet?
Then you go and find yourself a Bottom.
After the show there will be a talkback where you will each have the opportunity to ask the actors how they remember all those lines and how much they get paid for this.
During a talkback at Wicked, someone asked my friend what her Real Job was. Because a lead role in a Broadway show wasn’t real?

Awesome! Enjoy. It’s a great show.

Today, my Shakespeare professor informed us that there was once an avant garde production of Macbeth done entirely in the nude
Its title was a direct quote from Act 2:
"Is This a Dagger Which I See Before Me?"
I mean, maybe there was more than one, but his was definitely all nude, and just called Macbeth.

I forgot that I read this play. I know that’s not a great start, but now that I googled it and remember reading it, I remember liking it. But I guess ultimately it didn’t stick with me, though I remember really liking the doubling.

Oh my goddddd Matt…
Since Balm in Gilead has 300 people in it I’m going to skip it. SO. How about Heidi Chronicles?
Heidi- Elisabeth Moss
Peter- Christian Borle
Scoop- Chiwetel Ejiofor
Susan Johnson- Lucy Liu (I don’t know where this came from, but now I like the idea.)
Becky- Nikki M. James
Fran- Anne Harada (also doubling as the TV anchor)
Jill- Frances McDormand

I’ve lived in NYC for a little over six years. I’m originally from south Texas, and came to this area of the country to go to college in upstate New York. After graduation, I moved around a little bit on a variety of short-term stage management contracts, and then finally settled up here. I went where the work was, basically. And the most work, for me, is in NYC.

My favorites change all the time, but right now: Annie Baker, Young Jean Lee, David Greig, Tom Stoppard, Katori Hall, Kim Davies, Lanford Wilson, and Naomi Iizuka.
