Rehearsals are well under way for Brave Spirits Theatre's history-making SHAKESPEARE'S HISTORIES project, during which our ensemble of 20 will be performing all eight of the Bard's history plays in repertory over two years, and we are having an absolute nerdy blast of a time putting all of this together. Tickets are now on sale for the full two years, and are already selling quickly, which has all of us thrilled and excited!
This first year's shows are the HENRIAD, comprising RICHARD II, 1 HENRY IV, 2 HENRY IV, and HENRY V, and my rehearsal hours are steeped in elegant anger, stage combat, the exploration of Welsh, and Scottish accents, to flesh out my roles of the Duchess of Gloucester (R2), the Douglas (1H4), and Lady Mortimer (1H4), among others. I'm having a marvelous time, and using every tool in my actor toolbox while acquiring some new ones. Our first preview is January 2nd, 2020!
