I can't believe we open this Friday! You do not want to miss Oedipus The King at the Midland Center for the Arts! This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see a masterpiece Greek tragedy by the great Sophocles, in the round, with masks, and RARELY performed on stage.
I have been blessed to act in many plays in my life, but this one has a special place in my heart. The cast and crew - we are phenomenal - I am so honored to be a part of this experience. The translation by Nicholas Rudall is rich! We spent a month delving into the text. Certain lines or words would reveal themselves to us and blow us away every time we read through the script. We also worked in rasaboxes to strengthen communicating different emotions with our bodies. Oedipus is a tragedy, yes, but it also has a deeper message of seeking the truth, no matter what the outcome.
Check out the videos below. I, along with other cast mates and our amazing director Annette Thornton, talk about the show:
I hope you can join us this weekend or next! You can purchase your tickets at Midland Center for the Arts website. See you there!
