Goodness, I don't even know where to begin!
After enjoying an evening on Cloud 9 from a successful, inspiring reading of Más Cara, I went straight into rehearsal for Theatre en Bloc's production of Tanya Barfield's Bright Half Life. It's a non-linear, two-person play that jumps through the different chapters of the long history between Erica and Vicky. The show opens next Thursday (March 31st) and runs for two weekends in the Pony Shed at the VORTEX. And tickets are free. Yes, free! But reservations are required and because the space only seats 15, tickets are going FAST. [We've also got a special fundraiser performance on April 8th so that Theatre en Bloc can continue to offer affordable, quality theatre.]
Details and tickets for the fundraiser performance and all other performances can be found at: theatreenbloc.com
NOT ONLY THAT, but since my last post, I completed Improv 101 at The Institution Theater and participated in a student showcase that was remarkably supportive and full of energy. A couple of voiceover projects have come along and I've continued to work diligently on my voiceover demo with Lainie and this week. I started rehearsing for Teatro Vivo's production of Jelisa Jay Robinson's Stories of Us, which I am also very excited about. It opens on April 21st and examines the intersections between latinidad and blackness - something I know a thing or two about. It runs for three weekends and additional information and tickets will be at: teatrovivo.org
Yes, I know - rehearsing two shows at once and doing all the things at the same time is ludicrous, but that's just the hustle, y'all. Luckily, I'm in my groove. I hope to see you at one or both of the shows and if we've never met in person, please introduce yourself!
