I just finished my first Equity show at Dallas Theatre Center. Quite a monumental occasion for me. I feel I am moving closer to my career goals and feeling more driven with each experience.
The show as Inherit the Wind, and it is a Dallas, TX classic as well as American theatre classic.
This show gave me a new way of looking at theatre and reinforced that the combination of powerful actors and amazing text, plays can transcend time and place. That this "dinosaur" of a script is still just as relevant today.
My favorite moment was hearing Michael Connolly, performance after performance, whisk me away with "An idea is a great monument than a cathedral, than the advance of man's knowledge is more of a miracle than any sticks turned to snakes or the parting of water." (Inherit the Wind). I got to watch him being alive and playful every night. A true master class.
Plus, it introduced me to Margo Jones, who is quickly becoming an important of my future. She directed the original production of Inherit the Wind in Dallas, TX in 1955. It become a huge Broadway success because of her. She has inspired me in new ways.... STAY TUNED FOR MORE ON THAT!
