Happy closing to a process that was, from start to finish, a beautiful whirlwind.
The Boston Globe comes to talk to us … and also manages to document Samira rocking the leather trucker hat of my dreams.
DANGEROUS HOUSE has gone through so many incarnations since its early drafts (and big love to the NNPN and InterAct Theatre who commissioned and produced the earliest of those drafts.) Of the pages that existed then, not many remain – and only two words out of the original title. Some plays are born knowing how to be what they are… and some have to shed their skins again and again until they get there. I’m so excited to dig in with Saheem Ali and the Williamstown crew, as this play gets up on its new feet for the first time in years, and takes a walk around…
2 weeks of rehearsal, 2.5 days of tech, and we are open. I don’t know how Williamstown makes it work every summer, but somehow they do, and to me this miracle is right up there with loaves & fishes / water into wine. (Speaking of wine… it is also a miracle that there is any left in the Berkshire area.)
