Bonjour mes amis!
Are you wondering who the hell these people are? Well, read on sucka.
So the pre-production for Lookingglass Theatre's FEDRA is cooking along nicely! Last week the cast, director and a few designers came together for a reading of the latest draft of the script. I have to admit, I was quite scared---no, terrified! Every time I fly to Chicago to do work I try to arrive with enough time to get sleep, workout, and rest. But all of my nerves seem to thwart every effort to appear calm, cool and collected.
Lucky for me, Lookingglass theatre is my home, and its never a room filled with strangers. When I arrived at the Hancock to our rehearsal space, the first person I saw was Morroco Omari. Let me tell you folks, the day always goes well when you're greeted by a good looking Taurus man like Mr. Omari.
Make no mistake about it, I have a crush on EVERY single actor in the show. And why shouldn't I? If you spent 2 hours with Tamberla Perry, Lauren Hirte, Michael Salinas, Sharina Martin and my favorite Taurus man Anthony Fleming III, you'd be drooling too. ( Sadly Lisa Tejero could not join us but the gorgeous Nicole Shaloub filled in and yes, I have a crush on her too!) All of the aforementioned people are glorious good looking bastards and I want to hump all of them.
Okay, so they're all talented, brilliant artists and are veterans of the Chicago stage and film blah blah blah I feel like we've assemble the hottest cast EVER. Led by an even hotter hottie directress Laura Eason.
So my friends, if you want to see some hotties do some damned fine acting start saving your nickels! Tickets for Fedra go on sale August 18th. You can of course become a subscriber NOW for as low as $80.00! And that includes all three amazing shows for the next season J. Nicole Brooks' FEDRA David Catlin's ICARUS & David Schwimmer's TRUST.
Oh and the reading went really REALLY well.
I hope to see you there. And if you subscribe to our 2009-10 season. I'll hump you.
Ciao for now kiddies!
