This weekend I was involved in a preview of performances from Hubris Production's 2007/08 Season at the Hoover-Leppen Theatre at Center on Halsted.
They are doing 3 great shows this year:
Love! Valour! Compassion!
Five Women Wearing The Same Dress
Girls Will Be Girls
I was involved in the show "Girls Will Be Birls". This is a World Premier stage production of the award-winning film Girls Will Be Girls.
Three Actresses at various places on the Hollywood food chain navigate the mindfield of love, aging and ambition. Evie, an aging actress in the twi-dark of her career, drinks her way through the day, longing to jump-start her career and any man in the vicinity. Her roommate and verbal punching bag, Coco, only yearns for one thing: to have a child with the doctor that performed her abortion. When Varla, a country girl with a bit of an eating disorder and her own dreams of making it as an actress, joins the household, their aspirations and sordid pasts come to an unforgettable boiling point.
I played the character Varla for this preview and was just recently asked to play the role in the production as well. I am pretty excited since this is a great company and a really funny role. So I will keep you posted on performance dates!
