PATP: The Virgin and the Veteran


This weekend’s cast features two recent PATP, UW graduates – Scott Ward Abernethy (virgin actor) and Marianna de Fazio (veteran actor). We saw Scott as Francis – a patient recovering from serious war time trauma, mumbling “Lights Out”, in Zoe Fitzgerald’s Good Night. Tonight, he’s cast opposite Danielle Daggerty in the evening’s only two hander – Courtney Meaker’s Shorty Says Goodbye. Marianna played the half “feeble”, half scheming sister in Erin Stewart’s Mr. and Mrs. Hargrove on Friday, surprising and awing the audience […]

Early Impressions from Show #5 and #6

The 14/48 Gods May be Strong with this One


Before the Thursday night meeting started, people were mingling, saying hello to old and new friends. Marianna de Fazio (veteran actor) bumped into Keni Cohen (virgin director). After exchanging their names, Marianna said to Keni, “You look familiar. I wonder where I’ve seen you before.” Joe Ivy reads his lines as Marianna de Fazio looks on.Photo: Agastya Kohli “You look familiar too.” Keni responded with the second half of a conversation that so many theatre people have had before, and […]
