J-E-L-L-O


JOHN FARRAGE DURING THE ACTOR DRAW… SURPRISE! WE PUT JELL-O IN THE TIN! THE JELL-O TIN SEEMED LIKE SO MUCH FUN THAT ERIN KRAFT HAD TO TRY IT OUT! TIM HYLAND SCOLDING ERIN, “NOW YOU GOT JELL-O ON THE PAUL MULLIN SCRIPT!”

Explicate


ex-pli-cate [ek-spli-keyt] -verb (used with object), -cat-ed, -cat-ing. to make plain or clear; explain; interpret. Used in a Sentence: There is a lot of explicating to do in the 8th floor rehearsal room today, where Erin Kraft, Tina LaPadula, and John Paulsen are working furiously to make sense of PLAY 7, We’re Not Talking by Paul Mullin. Inner monologue, imaginary voices, a beach blanket? Come make sense of it all yourself, when We’re Not Talking premieres and closes tonight at […]

A moment with Erin Kraft…


SLOOP: Erin, how would you sum up your play? ERIN KRAFT: A touching exploration of human relationships. The uncertainties of ourselves and the uncertainties of other people. (all spoken in a breathy voice) SLOOP: How about your cast? ERIN KRAFT: I have a BAD ASS CAST! As happens in the staff room, this set off a spiral of absurd responses… TIM HYLAND: You have BAD ASS GAS? ERIN KRAFT: Yes, my cast has to moon people and I may need […]

TECH – The Female of the Species by Maggie Lee


Tech for show three has begun – 4:35. Megan Ahiers has just arrived and is sitting next to me. She must have not liked my patchouli scent because as soon as she arrived she left. Oh my goodness… has Brandon Whitehead lost weight? He looks fabulous! I can’t believe he doesn’t have a boyfriend… (Brandon may or may not have told me to blog that) Ahhh… Ryan Higgins almost slid off the stage! Erin Kraft reminds him to be safe. […]

LOU HAS ARRIVED!


14/48 Stage Manager, Lou Butler, has arrived! Quick Quotes and Tiddly Bits: “Intense. The day has been on constant fast forward. Veterans have asked if I’m going to barf.” – Arreola – VIRGIN ACTOR (Hey, don’t barf on me, buddy.) “It has to come from the heart… I’m starting to find it.” – Ryan Higgins – ACTOR (asked how the ‘girly wave’ he was directed do was going for him) Morgan Rowe is wearing a birthday hat… yup. “God… we […]

Floor 7 Lounge


Just moved my home base from the basement to the 7th floor. Couldn’t handle the barrage of insults from Alex Samuels… hopefully he won’t find me here. Erin Kraft and her crew of Ryan Higgins, Brandon Whitehead and Troy Lund are currently on break. What I witnessed during their previous run: * hilarity * a massive deer head looming over their process… a ‘spirit guide’ you might say… EK agrees * EK watched her pet from the stairs * there […]

Q & A – ERIN KRAFT (DIRECTOR)


SLOOP: How has your morning been going? EK: Really fun. A good group of boys. Surrounded by the men, just the way I like it. Got a weird, sci-fi piece. Instead of going big, we’re going smaller and weirder than ever. * She then left the room with her bagel and cola before I could ask her about the dangers of Director Butterflies. Will pursue the answer to this at a later time.*
