Today I’m up bright and early, ready to hit the road towards Ithaca, NY with Matt Clevy, Fault Line Theatre’s Director of Communications. After several weeks of rehearsal and months of planning, From White Plains begins it’s latest reincarnation at The Kitchen Theatre with the same cast and design team from our previous run in New York City.
Tonight, Matt and I will be attending the opening performance and reception. I’ve seen this show close to 100 times (literally), yet each time I see it I discover something new: sometimes I’m moved by an unexpected moment, other times a passage of writing jumps out at me in a way I never noticed. I think that is one of the joys of great theatre: when all the elements of drama (acting, design, writing, etc.) are functioning together cohesively to tell a poignant story, it can never get old.
Happy opening! And I’ll see you in Ithaca!
