‘Hearts Like Fists’

The very lovely Kimberly Yates of Moxie Street Picture Shows asked me to come out and play:

Come see “Hearts Like Fists” by Adam Szymkowicz (lovely playwright & interesting guy – he’s got a great feature on his blog where he interviews playwrights), in a reading at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe!

It’s a sweet comedy about the vulnerability of love, delivered in the superhero comic book genre!

‘Chekhovek’ – Great review in the New York Times

Apparently, I am a “very fine Celia Schaefer” and part of a cast that is “nimble, deftly portraying the numerous characters.” Quite a nice thing to read!

Rehearsals for Chekhovek Begin

Celia Schaefer and Eddie Allen take a break during the first table read of “Chekhovek.”

This is incredibly exciting. I did a production of an early version of this play up in Hudson New York two years ago and it’s finally come to New York!

It’s a collection of Chekhov short stories adapted for the stage. I have the unbelievable privilege of reprising the role of Anna Sergeyevna, the title character in “The Lady with the Dog,” and have picked up the title role in “The Chemist’s Wife” as well! If you don’t know Chekhov’s short stories, run out and buy the Pevear/Volokhonsky translation collection NOW. Such fantastic writing!

The majority of the rest of the cast from the original production (Eddie Allen, David Anderson and Rob Leo Roy) are back and we’ve added the wonderful Elizabeth Fountain. If you want to see more, the website is up at www.chekhovek.com.
