I just got home from my first rehearsal for CasablancaBox, and it’s fantastic! I’m barely done with my SITI training two week program (last class was on Friday) and now I am very grateful to work with director Reid Farrington – he happens to love working from Viewpoints – and co-director Marina McClure, who has assisted Anne Bogart/SITI Company!!! Can you believe that???
After the SITI workshop, I am so fortunate to go straight into rehearsal for this inspiring stage play, and in less than two weeks I will be on stage at the HERE Arts Center downtown Manhattan, in the role of German Refugee, Hilde!
My new character worked on the movieset of Casablanca in 1942, and she speaks almost entirely German throughout the play. O, I am so excited to be working on the German language and my German accent. Please come and see this piece about the making of Casablanca, in which we not only get to act, but also move and sing!
