Old Times @ Fusion Theatre Company, Albuquerque, NM. (From Kate’s Act II entrance monologue “I’d like to go to the East, or somewhere like that…”)
Fusion’s production of ‘Old Times’ is superb”
“The gem in this production is Celia Schaefer, whose Kate is positively riveting, especially in her final, shocking… monologue.”
“As hostile and cryptic as it is glamorous, FUSION’s production of Harold Pinter’s Old Times froths over with barely concealed tension.”
It has been a glorious opening week here in Albuquerque. Good lord, I do love working on great plays with artists who are every bit as committed as I am to delivering something true, something revealing.
This is my first time working with Gil Lazier, a Fusion regular — and I can see why. He’s a joy.
And I feel so happy and at home working with Jacqueline Reid (we were classmates at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts). She’s luminous, impetuous, powerful. And I’m show-spouses again (last time was in “Disgraced”) with the lightening-quick John San Nicolas. I’m in heaven!
