Announcement time! In light of an actor having to drop out, I have been promoted from "button pusher" to "Mrs. Heckwick/Prossie" in Dream Theatre Company's The Mechanical Man, to be performed at the Chicago Fringe Festival! While unexpected, this is exciting news, as many of you may have gathered, I'm a girl who likes to be on stage. This silent all-girl steampunk German Expressionist play is like nothing else you'll see in Chicago, let alone at the Chicago Fringe. We started rehearsing tonight, tried on some costumes, and I am already in love with this show.
Anna Menekseoglu, Managing Director of Dream Theatre, actor, director, knitter, costumer, and podcaster extraordinaire, did a podcast interview with Vinnie Lacey, co-founder and Executive Director of the Chicago Fringe. Anna teases Mechanical Man, reveals the origins of Dream Theatre, plugs MEDEA currently running at DTC, and explains the wonders of yarn bombing the Fringe. Check out the podcast below!
