I have been so fortunate, thus far, to have been involved in a project or production since the first of the year. With this momentum, I have had the opportunity to meet and work with such beautiful people in talent, spirit, and joy. I think what appeals to me so much about the theatre, are the comrades I interact with along the way. I have been unable to post the many photos I have taken behind the scenes since The Fire This Time Festival, and I thought it would be a great post to publish today in light of Private Lives’ closing on Sunday.
I have had oodles of fun with each person you see in these photos and my heart has a place for each and every one of them. You see, they are not just cast mates and co-collaborators, they are my friends.
This photo collage includes photos from Cafe Le Monde, Private Lives and reunions with cast members from The Fire This Time Festival and Ivanov.
This week’s #AboutLastNight is all about “Not In This Room,” the production I’m working in as a part of the Fire This Time Festival Festival downtown. What a fantastic opening weekend, three shows down with only two more to go, this experience has been a great one. Not only do I get to work with Daaimah Mubashshir again (read here about our last collaboration) but I’ve made new connections with my fellow actors.
On top of opening a show, my good friend Andrew and his classmate Andrea, made their first trip down from Syracuse on Friday for a ceramics conference. 2015 has officially begun now that I have had a taste of home 🙂
Hope you enjoy the photos, and if you’re in the New York area head over to horsetrade.info to buy your ticket to the Fire This Time Festival’s 10-minute Play Festival.
