Lisi Stoessel as Barkeep (Fall 2015 cast). Throughout the devising process, we left room for each character to grow in its own way, and gave support to each actor to discover how the character wanted to live in the world we were creating. No character followed the same performance style, and the Barkeep was one of the most mysterious, both in devising and performance. With little spoken text and few outright narrative revelations, the original Barkeep Jessica Ruth Baker, along with the actors who came along in the fall, Stoessel and Caitlin Bouxsein, worked diligently to find ways to give concrete narrative clues to the audience without being able to speak directly to them. Barkeep was one of the most challenging but most satisfying characters.
