I’m having a great time rehearsing excerpts from Much Ado About Nothing, Twelfth Night and Two Gentlemen of Verona for Boomerang Theater’s benefit on Monday night in the West Village. It’s called Shake the Room and goes up on Monday, July 2 at 8 p.m. Tickets can be purchased here. Audience members will call out the scenes from a list of titles like “My Best Friend’s Girlfriend” or “Just Get a Room Already,” and can give the actors style prompts like western, film noir, superhero movie, etc.
Brian Gillespie is directing my cohort of scenes and I am performing with Francesca Calo, Andy Ingalls and Katherine McLeod. The evening is hosted by Brian Silliman. Below is a picture with about half of the actors involved.
