I'm going to be part of the 2017 Actors' Renaissance Season at the American Shakespeare Center next year!
It's a bundle of exciting plays and an excellent troupe. See for yourself come January 2017.
Here's my track:
I aim to share some of the process on the work in the coming weeks/months.
Three of these plays will not have a director (Merchant, Scandal, and Coriolanus). The troupe will put it together as an ensemble. Shakespeare's day didn't really have the role of director that we do today. That's a relatively recent addition to the theatre world.
We'll also "go rogue" when it comes to costuming those plays.
Our rehearsal schedule is a bit on the "very little time" side. And we're performing these plays in repertory.
I did the Renaissance Season in 2014, and it was mighty fun and mighty challenging.
Amidst my other duties of directing All My Sons, grading projects, and working on some auditions, I'm in this lovely creative incubation stage where the plays and roles are swirling around in my head. I'll probably get a jump on memorizing (particularly Menenius) soon.
More information about this exciting season can be found on the American Shakespeare Center website.
