Shakespeare, Shaken

Twenty actors and one rehearsal: What could go wrong?

  • Um, there’s a dead lady in my pool. … Audra Honaker plays Ophelia and James Ricks is Hamlet in this year’s Bootleg Shakespeare production.

“Audiences love it when there is a train wreck,” Henley Street Theatre Company’s artistic director, James Ricks, says of his annual Bootleg Shakespeare production. It’s all part of the crazy energy of the event, in which selected actors converge on a specific day with lines memorized, costumes chosen and props in hand, go through one practice run and then perform that night in front of an audience. This year’s show is “Hamlet,” in which Ricks will reprise the title role he played 11 years ago at the Blackfriars Playhouse in Staunton.

Ricks has never acted in a Henley Street bootleg production, and he’s in good company. Some of Richmond’s leading actors, such as Audra Honaker and Scott Wichmann, are joining in for the first time along with key management from several local professional theater companies.

“It’s been a long time since I’ve had to memorize words and say them in front of people,” says Philip Crosby, managing director of Richmond Triangle Players, who last acted onstage in 1985. “My goal is to wake everybody up,” he says, “so this performance could end up somewhere between Oscar Wilde, Terry-Thomas and Bette Midler. We’ll just have to see.”

Wichmann plays Fortinbras, his first performance since his return from deployment to Afghanistan as a Navy reservist. There he worked with the Army to recycle and dispose of used equipment in an effort to clean up battle space. “It will be my first exposure to this process,” he says. “It is scary and interesting to see what the dynamic is and just be a part of that energy.”

What Wichmann’s talking about is the Elizabethan-style staging that minimizes rehearsals and emphasizes performance. “Actors were given their lines and the cue that indicated when they needed to execute those lines,” Ricks says. “So not only were roles learned in isolation from the other actors, but also the rest of the play.”

Lack of rehearsal time may have been normal for actors during Shakespeare’s time, but modern-day actors are used to practicing their parts. “It is really interesting to see how different actors handle the intensity of this type of staging,” Ricks says. “Some thrive on it while others just fall apart.”

“I think I’ll love it,” Honaker says. “It’s kind of like how a callback works [in an audition]: You just go out there and do it the best you can right at that time. You don’t have time to overthink it.”

Past years’ bootleg performances sold out in minutes at the previous location, Virginia Rep’s theatre at Willow Lawn. Moving to the larger November Theatre, formerly the Empire, will accommodate more people and permit a bigger show — which also maximizes the potential for mishaps. Another plus for Ricks is that the performances tends to show off plays that aren’t normally produced, such as “Titus Andronicus” and “Troilus and Cressida.” “There’s no expectation of what those plays are supposed to be like. Everybody’s going to come into ‘Hamlet’ thinking they know the show,” Ricks says. “We want to defy some of the expectation and maintain the bootleg aesthetic, which is very irreverent and kind of all over the place.” S

Henley Street Theatre Company’s Bootleg Shakespeare production of “Hamlet” takes place at the November Theatre on Saturday, Oct. 27, at 7:30 p.m. Free, suggested donation $10. Tickets will be released at 6 p.m. Limit two tickets per person, no reservations taken. For information, visithenleystreettheatre.org or call 340-0115.

Tribute to Obama Mama

This just in from Boomie at the Hamner.  Looks interesting but my plate is full for this weekend.  Would someone else like to write about it and post on this blog?

Greetings from the Hamner Theater!

October has been a busy month and we are headed to Halloween and then of course, the election!  We’ve been in rehearsal for Stanley Ann, the Unlikely Story of Barack Obama’s Mother.  And it opens this Thurs., Oct. 25 at 8pm.  Additional performances are Fri. and Sat. Oct. 26 and 27 at 8pm at the Bridge PAI in Belmont.

This new one woman show in 13 scenes features Kate Adamson as Stanley Ann – yes, she was named for her father – and is produced for the Hamner by Jen Hoffman Jones, in partnership with the IRC.  There will be talkbacks following each performance with actress, director, producer and IRC representative – please stay and be part of the conversation!

The Bridge is a cozy space just over the Belmont Bridge and reservations are suggested – call 434-361-1999 to reserve a seat.  Admission is by donation with a suggested donation of $10.  For more information please visit  www.thehamnertheater.com 

Coming on the heels of Stanley Ann is the Red Eye Project, a student-initiated fund raiser for the new works initiative at Hollins College.  On Sat., Nov. 3, the Hamner is teaming up with the Wayne Theater to host the East Coast performance of the 7 new works; the same 7 new plays will be shown in 3 other time zones simultaneously.  Like 24/7, the Red Eye Project brings together directors, actors and new 10 minute scripts for a fast and furious 12 hour production process, culminating in a performance at 8pm in the Gateway space in Waynesboro.  The performance will be videoed, as will the performances in Chicago, Montana and California and shared on you tube – a chance to see 4 unique versions of each of 7 new scripts.  Visit the Facebook page for details about the other theaters involved and more about the project itself.

The Hamner Theater champions the development of new work and the VPSI (Virginia Playwrights and Screenwriters Initiative) is the process we offer to playwrights to do so – a chance to work with dramaturg, director and actors to move a script closer to being ready for production.  We are currently working on Uxoricide,  by Charlottesville playwright Rick Steeves, “The Drake Play” by DC playwright Richard Washer and Love Songs by Norfolk playwright Patti Wray.

Speaking of new plays, opening at Four County Players on Oct. 26 is a brand new play by Shawn Hirabayashi – Woman in a Tiled Room.  Visit www.fourcp.org for details.  Help keep theater alive and vibrant – support new work!

Nov. 3 is also the next CLAW date – that’s Charlottesville Lady Arm Wrestlers.  These plucky women fight for a charity and this time, the Hamner Theater is the lucky  charity.  Please come out and support the Hamner Theater and root for your favorite strong-lady!

This is a lot of information for one newsletter but remember Stanley Ann this week, Oct. 25, 26 and 27 – hope to see you at the Bridge!

Cheers,

Boomie

Original Masks at Firefish

I have seen some of these already and they are marvelous!  And just in time for Halloween or to pick up early for the Beaux Arts Ball in February. MB

The Mask Show:  Unmasked and Unhinged

 October 25th through December 5th 2012

Charlottesville, VA-  FIREFISH Gallery, an art gallery in downtown Charlottesville that carries handmade artisan work and craft by local artists and artisans, announces a new collaborative exhibition of masks.  The show titled:  The Mask Show- Unmasked and Unhinged, showcases the masks of twenty local artists.

 

The exhibit was the brainchild of gallery owner and mask maker Sigrid Eilertson.   She started an individual mask for each artist and then handed it off to be completed by the artist through any means desired.  The results have been spectacular.  Eilertson states, “I know most of these artists personally so I had them specifically in mind when starting their mask.  Where they took the mask was up to them.”  The collaborative process is representative of the philosophy of the gallery- to make art accessible, to encourage community involvement and to support emerging artists.  The artists have used a wide array of materials including leather, fiber, coconut shells, paint, jewels, etc..  Each mask reflects the personality of both artists and their skills.  The masks range from large, elaborate and complex to a more minimalist subtle beauty.

 

The artists featured are:

Sigrid Eilertson Eileen Butler Matthew Merkle

Charlotte Fracis Susan Clawson Jennifer Elmore

Ken Nagakui Virginia Myers Peter Krebs

Rick Miller Alex Bolling Darrell Rose

John Tripple Steve Taylor Daphne Latham

Stephanie Helvin Alp Isin Annie Jacobs

Rudgar Clawson Christos

 

For additional information about this exhibition please contact Sigrid Eilertson: co-owner of FIREFISH Gallery at 434/984-1777 or sigridanne@hotmail.com or visit us online at firefishgallery.com

 

FIREFISH Gallery is located on the historic downtown mall at 108 2nd St. NW, Charlottesville, VA.

Avenue Q at Tandem Friends School

Even though Tandem Friends is a rather progressive, forward thinking kind of school I was shocked when I heard that AVENUE Q was selected as the Upper School play this year.  I agree that teens should learn about and discuss issues presented in the play in the safe environment of their homes and the class room but Holy Cow! this is some fairly grown up content.

Then I learned that the play has been adapted to be more appropriate for this age group.  Now I am curious how much it is changed and if the piece maintain its integrity.  If you are also curious (or even if you would just like to see the show) here is the 411:

 

Music and Lyrics by  Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx
Book by  Jeff Whitty
Based on an original concept by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx

Tandem’s Artistic Team:
Director –  Larry Goldstein
Music Director – Erica Umback
Choreographer – Galen Greenlaw
Puppetry Director – Jigsaw Jones
Scenic Designer – Chris Halstead

AVENUE Q SCHOOL EDITION is a laugh-out-loud musical that tells the timeless story of a recent college grad named Princeton who moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q.  He soon discovers that although the residents seem nice, it’s clear that this is not your ordinary neighborhood. Together, Princeton and his new-found friends struggle to find jobs, dates, and their ever-elusive purpose in life.   Winner of the Tony “Triple Crown” for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book, AVENUE Q is packed with heart.

Because the original AVENUE Q has some content elements that have previously made it a difficult choice for some high school productions, MTI has worked with the AVENUE Q authors to create an adaptation that maintains the dramatic intention and integrity of the piece, while editing it to make it more appropriate for high school audiences and performers.  The show addresses important issues and stays true to its identity as an energetic blend of a beloved children’s show and aB roadway musical. Avenue Q is a place where puppets are friends, monsters are good and life lessons are learned.(Adapted from the Avenue Q website)

Performances are Thursday, Friday and Saturday, October 25 – 27 at 7 p.m.  and Sunday, October 28 at 2 p.m.  Tickets are $10/Adults and $8/Students and Seniors.  Reservations may be made by calling Kelly at 434-296-1303 x0.  We will reserve 100 seats per show and release them 10 minutes before curtain.  There will also be 35 seats left unreserved for first-come, first served.

Virginia OperaThe Pearl Fishers, Georges Bizet’s classic tale of forbidden love, unfolds on an island fishing village, cloaked in mystique. Pearl fishermenZurga and Nadir, are old friends who swore an oath to never pursue the beautiful Leila, with whom they are both in love. In preparation for a fishing trip, an anonymous veiled virgin arrives to pray for the fleet’s safety. When the two men learn of the virgin’s true identity, they become locked in a bitter love triangle that tests the bonds of friendship and loyalty. The sumptuous and melodic score by Bizet, composer of operatic mega-hit Carmen, showcases the celebrated “Pearl Fishers Duet” for tenor and baritone, “Au fond du temple saint, “ which has been regarded for decades as one of the greatest operatic numbers of all time.

Stake your Territory in Clybourne Park

I would like to begin my thoughts on Live Arts production of “Clybourne Park“, awarded the  2011 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the 2012 Tony Award for Best Play by Bruce Norris, with  the chorus of a song from “Avenue Q”:

Everyone’s a little bit racistSometimes.

Doesn’t mean we goAround committing hate crimes.

Look around and you will find

No one’s really color blind.

Maybe it’s a fact

We all should face

Everyone makes judgments

Based on race.

Yes, everyone is a just a bit racist and even though we may do our best to hide that fact (or perhaps we are a unaware), at times our ignorance and fear surface despite our best efforts.  Norris creates a sociological study in “Clybourne Park” of how in two very different eras we are basically just as racist, we simply express it differently.

The play is a follow up story to Lorraine Hansberry’s 1960Tony nominated play, “A Raisin in The Sun“, a piece that attempts to give background story to a real life lawsuit (Hansberry v. Lee, 311 U.S. 32 (1940)) in which the  playwright’s family battled a white neighborhood association to keep their home.  The story takes place at 406 Clybourne Park,  an Arts & Crafts style home in a neighborhood in northwest Chicago much like Washington Park where Hansberry’s family lived.  The first Act unfolds in 1959 when Russ (Ray Nedzel) and Bev (Barbara Roberts) are packing up their belongings to move two years after the suicide of their only son, a veteran of the Korean War. Various characters enter the space and become caught in an uncomfortable conversation when the head of the all white neighborhood association reveals that the new owners of the house are black. Act II, is the story fast forwarded to 2009 when a descendant of the purchasers is selling the  now dilapidated house  to a gentrifying yuppy white couple. Norris shows us through his characters that battles of all kinds (mental, physical, psychological) are fought over territory – who is allowed where, when, and how.

Norris’ script is so densely rich with meaning, innuendo, social observation and humor that honestly, I forgot to notice many production elements (except the spectacular set designed by Jeff Kmiec and expertly constructed by Geoff Otis and a staff of volunteers) until the second Act.  My first Act amnesia is, however, a testament to the high level of both Betsy Tucker’s directing and the acting ability of the cast.  Had there been major flaws in the execution of that delicate, mine -field of a  script, it would have stood out like finger nails scraped across a chalk board.  Instead, Nedzel and Roberts start out the play with excellence and it is carried through by the rest of the cast particularly, Chris Patrick who plays rather overtly racist Karl in the first Act and a rather closeted racist, Steve in the second. In fact all of the actors play dual roles, a device Norris plays with like a person who teases a cat with a string.  He uses stereotypes, timely social morays, repeated themes and lines sometimes from different characters and sometimes from their opposites between the acts that keeps the audience raptly engaged. Tucker is keen to pick up on the fun in this and blocks her actors to mimic the playwrights game, the actors expertly comply delivering lines and utilizing copy-cat physicality to emphasize those moments.

In fact, this group is so good that despite a most unusual moment about 15 minutes into the second Act, actress, Jenny Smith who plays Francine/Lena was called off the stage due to a family emergency and replaced by Assistant Stage Manager, Jovi Richards,(she was great, BTW) the cast soldiered on without missing a beat.  ( I plan to see the play again just to get the un-interrupted version.)

Richards was lucky though, she got to perform one of the best bits in the play in which Lena tells a joke to demonstrate the offensiveness and falseness of the PC veneer each character is polishing in their race/class discussion.  She tells this joke which sent the audience into absolute howls of relief/recognition laughter:

The Joke:

Q:Why is a white woman like a tampon?

A: Because they are both stuck up c – – ts.

(If you can’t figure out the punch line then you must go to the play.)

That joke alone, in the context of the play or not, is worth the Pulitzer in my book.

The two production elements that flawed the show for me where lighting (at least in the second Act when I made a conscious effort to notice) and a costume issue.  I noticed plenty of shadows on faces particularly upstage -which is annoying when watching an otherwise high caliber production.  In terms of costumes, Tricia Emlet does a bang- up job matching the costumes with the characters and eras. The glaring costume problem is: whatever she used to fake Betsy/Lindsey’s (Lena Malcolm) pregnancy.  Part of the issue was how Malcolm seemed to treat the large bulbous false tummy as a weightless balloon- very much unlike the reality of being in the late stages of child-bearing.( I suggest to Ms. Malcolm, a method acting technique of following a sleepless night, drinking about a gallon of green tea in an hour then strapping a  30 lbs weight very tightly to her belly so that it puts pressure on her bladder then taking a run up Carter Mountain without allowing herself to pee for at least two hours to get the idea.)

Other than those two things, I thought this show was FANTASTIC! and I highly recommend it. I talked to several people over the weekend who had seen the show and all of them said that it had spawned some really interesting conversations, especially the ending- which will remain undisclosed here but suffice it to say that the consensus is to love it or hate it. People either get a sense of closure and the joy of completing a running theme or they feel that it is too jarring and introduces an extraneous issue into the mix.  I urge you to laugh, cry and flinch through the show and make your own decision.

The Cast: Ray Nedzel, Barbara Roberts. Jenny Smith, Mark McLane, Brandon Lee, Chris Patrick, Lena Malcolm, Eamon Hyland, and for one night only, Jovi Richards

Note:  Melanin will be performing a staged reading of “A Raisin in The Sun” in Rehearsal A room on the 4th floor at Live Arts on October 13 at 8:00pm and on October 14 at 2:00pm all tickets are $10.00.

“Opera from the Inside Out”

On Saturday at 12:15pm at The Paramount Theater, Mary Ann Archer, a flutist with The Metropolitan Opera Orchestra for 26 years, will share how she learned opera from ‘the inside out’, by playing in the orchestra, first learning her notes, then listening to the other instruments ‘ melodies, then hearing the singers, then reading the words and learning the stories. Over countless rehearsals and performances, each opera’s characters and stories became to her like old, dear friends. 

Don’t miss this unique chance to hear some of Mary Ann’s inside experiences of playing L’Elisir D’Amore/The Elixir of Love with the Met, in New York and even in Japan! 

The 13th of October also marks the start of our second fall session of our popular Italian Language through Opera course, Italiano all’OperaLet us know if you’d like to visit a class as our guest one Saturday soon. We have also posted many of our Winter 2013 Italian classes, too!
