GAME OF THRONES’ Peter Dinklage & OITNB’s Taylor Schilling to star in A MONTH IN THE COUNTRY off-Broadway

Ivan Turgenev’s classic play chronicles the comic and erotic turmoil that befalls an otherwise quiet country estate when a handsome young tutor arrives to teach Natalya Petrovna’s (Schilling) young son. But it is Natalya who becomes interested in a tutelage of another kind, much to the consternation of her husband and her suffering friend, Rakitin (Dinklage), who is secretly smitten with her.

We’re overheated after performing outside at SummerStage, so we’re taking our clothes off! $2 off your ticket if YOU show up half nekkid, too!!!

So, we’re all going to this, right?

Oh my goodness David, you’re going to slum it with us downtown theater kids again?

Anonymous said: What are some unique monologues that you've heard for woman?

When I was little, I did some modeling. Minor stuff. Nothing fancy. But one thing I did, which was part of some celebration of the local botanical center, was a tableaux. I was the little girl in the white dress at the center of this:

For HOURS. It was a verrrrry long time for a 7 year old to stand still. But I was so excited to be doing a tableaux, since that’s what they did in Little Women. Also, I really loved wearing a hat, but did not love holding the hand of a total stranger.

The dogs and monkey were wooden cutouts. I really wanted to be the lady walking the monkey. There was a giant picture frame around the area of the park where we were.

I have been trying to get my hands on pictures, but they are at my parents’ house and my mom has no idea where they are. But I’ve always loved this painting because of that.

But I’ve never seen Sunday in the Park with George.

Hamlet 1989

OMG look at bb Mark Rylance IN HIS JAMMIES

I remember those pajamas as if it was yesterday.  THE BEST HAMLET EVER.

Also probably the best field trip in my school’s history.  Who would have known that we’d be seeing the greatest Hamlet of all time. ALL TIME.

You fields of ghosts who walk these green plains still.
Come, you giants!"
