You gotta see this, just because it could turn out to be a total debacle! Here's the inside LiveJournal only scoop on the cast:
Steve - Adorable guy and a great actor (very talented). But we have to play a romantic scene together and there's not an ounce of chemistry there. In fact, we keep ending up giggling every time we get close to the kiss. Come and see if we finally end up putting on the most convincing, hot, romantic, sexually tension filled scene ever...or we fall flat on our faces!
Susan - She forgets her lines, some of which happen to be MY CUES. So if she forgets during the performance I'll be cue-less and standing there like a dolt trying to improvise!!! Susan is also supposed to break myself and Steve up when I say, "Stop or I'll scream!" She either forgets, comes in to soon, or takes so long that by the time she gets there Steve is practically on top of me on the table! She also has a habit of breaking character and even laughing. Come see if she's really a consummate professional under it all and can keep it together for a real performance or if I end up standing there on the stage in total silence...wondering if she's ever going to give me my cue!!!
Paul - My goal is to work as hard as this guy! He gets better and better every rehearsal. And it's because he does his homework, does his warm ups before rehearsal, and takes his own personal time to research. Since he plays a grampa in one of the scenes, he even spent a few hours with some elderly folks to study them. He's a professional through and through and he's got some of the funniest moments in this play! He'll crack you up.
James - He's kinda yummy. Wait, that's not what I meant to say! Hehe. Actually he and I have so few scenes together that I haven't had a chance to formulate a legitimate opinion about his skills. But I suspect that, like me, he holds back at rehearsal and is going to surprise us all during the performance!
NOTE ABOUT ONE OF THE SCENES: There is an infamous crotch grabbing moment in the play, totally cracks everyone up! My goal, biggest challenge in this play, is to NOT laugh during the crotch grabbing. I'm going to try my damnedest (is that even a word?)...focus on Susan instead...think about dead puppies...anything. If I can get through the crotch grabbing without falling down laughing -- some one needs to buy me a drink after the show -- please!!!
