THE STACY PLAY – SOLD OUT

I’m very excited about directing a staged reading of THE STACY PLAY – A LOVE SONG – VOLUME I for two performances in Central Park this Saturday. The cast consists of Soraya Broukhim* as Stacy and Brent Wellington Barker III as Jonathan. They are both members of The Living Theatre’s acting company, where I recently saw them perform in Judith Malina’s HISTORY OF THE WORLD.

Our rehearsal last Saturday was full of challenges. I had to rework the route for the walking tour because of loud music coming from events based near the sites I had chosen. I moved the action to three spots surrounding Bethesda Fountain: an outcropping of that great, bold gray rock for Act One, a site overlooking the Lake for Act Two, and a grove of trees overlooking both for Act Three. I  hope that the audience will feel a connection with nature and a large sense of space while listening to the story of a woman’s spectacular life which spans over a century.

Stay tuned next week for news of the reading, and some audience responses.
