I’m excited to work with Custom Made Theater Co. for the first time, with Brian Katz directing! I’ll be working on the role of Ella. Very curious about her, and her prototype in Uncle Vanya. Time to brush up on Chekhov! Rehearsals begin in a few months, and the show goes up in May.
About the show:
In this brash reworking of Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya, a group of old friends, ex-lovers, estranged in-laws, and lifelong enemies gather to grapple with life’s thorniest questions—and each other. What could possibly go wrong? Incurably lustful and lonely, hapless and hopeful, these seven souls collide and stumble their way towards a new understanding that Life Sucks! Or does it? Posner’s follow-up to his Stupid F*cking Bird (seen at SF Playhouse) is Mel Brooks meets Chekhov: lowbrow, dirty, passionate, and unexpectedly tender.
