Reporting to let the world know I (barely) survived the first week of B3-The Hybrid at Black Box Acting Studio. Seriously, I'm sore in some new places, and it's not like I'm out of shape. This high-intensity class combines Meisner and Viewpoints and I am excited to see where it leads. We are developing a physical language to discover text with and I can't wait to see what comes of this course. I've always felt a connection with Viewpoints work and how accessible it can be, so I'm excited to integrate it more fully into my stage work in a meaningful way.
The attached photo is the "Paparazzi Pic of the Week" for Black Box's weekly newsletter, "Your Weekend Buzz". Clearly, class is quite the knockout (though Conner seems to be just fine up right).
4 weeks to go!
Audience Annihilated Part Two: Gold Star Sticker
When: 10/31-11/3: Thu-Sat 7:30, 8, 8:30, and 9 PM, Sun 7:30, 8, 8:30, 9, and 9:30 PM
In his second 15-minute haunted house/horror show (the first staged in 2011), Jeremy Menekseoglu creates a thoroughly chilling nightmare in the time it takes most performances to open the curtain. Up to four audience members can play the starring role of six-year-old Princess, chained first to the TV (metaphorically), then the bed (actually), as she's subjected to the disturbing events unfolding around her. Other, more traditional seats are available, but I recommend this role, especially if you have a hand to hold. The thrillingly too-close-for-comfort characters, whose beer breath you can smell, are flawless: Nicole Roberts is heartless as Mother and Madelaine Schmitt worms into the pit of your stomach as Bear, a teddy-turned-tormentor. —Marissa Oberlander
