Audiences are laughing their way through My Man Godfrey, and you should join them! There are only two more weekends left to catch this rare classic screwball comedy.
Here are a few of the reviews so far:
“Directed by Doug Staley, this show was beautifully set and costumed, and the theater was full of eager patrons. This madcap rom-com whipped the audience up into fits of laughter throughout the play. The performances of Alysha Curry as Molly the maid, Sarah Karnes as Irene Bullock, and Teri Lazzara as Angelica Bullock all displayed quick comedic timing and attention to detail that kept the audience laughing all night. Between the costumes and the drinks, the jokes and the jewelry, this production was certainly a party.” – Drama in the Hood
“Sarah Karnes’ portrayal of the bratty, diluted Irene is a delight. Teri Lazzara brings sauciness to the flighty Angelica Bullock. As her piggish “protégé” Carlo, Lantz Wagner is so dramatic in a really entertaining way. Terrence Boyd’s Alexander Bullock was an enjoyable victim of circumstance.” – BroadwayWorldSeattle
Turns out one of my favorite movies of all time, My Man Godfrey (starring William Powell and Carole Lombard) is also a play, and I am beyond excited to share with you that I will be playing Irene Bullock in Theater Schmeater’s upcoming production of My Man Godfrey (directed by Doug Staley).
Most people have never heard of this gem of a film, which is unfortunate. I quote this movie on a regular basis and have since high school. If, as of yet, my recommendation to see this movie has gone unheeded, you now have an even better excuse to see it. There are literally eight fullversionsofthemovieuploadedonYouTube. Go watch it, and then come see the show.
On April 20th, I will start rehearsals for Renton Civic Theatre’s production of Sandy Wilson’s The Boy Friend, directed by John Kelleher. I will play Fay, one of Polly’s school chums, in this delightful musical comedy set in the 1920s.
Tickets for Leavenworth Summer Theatre’s 2014 shows are on sale now! I’m performing in all three productions this summer: The Sound of Music, Fiddler on the Roof, and The Drowsy Chaperone. Sound of Music and Fiddler are both outdoor productions.
I hear that tickets sell out (and there are no wait lists), so get your tickets while the getting’s good! It’s sure to be a wonderful summer.
