We've been neck deep in rehearsing this wonderful adaptation by Catherine Bush for the past few weeks and are finally getting ready for an audience.
This will be my third time working with Cleveland Play House and (spoiler alert!) my third time dying on the Allen Stage (Death by scenery strikes again!). Returning to this rehearsal room was like stepping into a different world. CPH has gone above and beyond in investigating and exploring new ways to change the traditional power structure within the rehearsal room. I hope to see more of this approach spread out across the regional theatre scene.
Working with this phenomenal ensemble has been such a gift. Laura and Rod went out of their way to seek out actor combatants who can handle the heightened language of the piece and both the text and fights throughout shine as the story gallops along.
If you find yourself in the Cleveland area between now and May 22nd, come join us!
