Description

In our remount of the show in the fall of 2015, we increased our cast from 6 to 16, creating 3 new characters and doubling the actors for the existing parts. A large challenge in the remount was having the original actors teach their parts to the new actors, because the characters were not created from a script, but from the minds of the original actors, and therefore their individual humanity was infused into them. The new actors had to find out where their own selves existed in the characters, often resulting in us needing to adjust scenes or moments to fit with the new actor's mind, body, and voice. We worked with our original actors to create a sense of generosity about their original creations, and essentially deputized them as directors to help their counterparts.
