Now here is a project I have been looking forward to for a very long time: Tape by StephenBelber.
The play’s focus is controversial, intense, violent, and very exciting! I’ll be playing Vince, a bad‐tempered, drug-dealing volunteer fireman – a very different character from anything I’ve played before.
Another aspect of this show is the unique, site-specific setting. Tape takes place in a hotel room, and Pink Banana Theatre has teamed up with the Best Western Inn Towne Hotel to produce the show in a room of the hotel.
The show is already intense, and having only 12 seats inside a small 12 x 15 ft. room, will definitely increase what the audience is feeling, to say the least!
Here’s some info from pinkbananatheatre.com:
Tape, set entirely in a hotel room in Milwaukee, brings together old high school friends Vince, a bad‐tempered volunteer fireman, and Jon, an up-and-coming filmmaker. After reminiscing over old times, the conversation – and their friendship – turn nasty.
Tape, By Stephen Belber
November 8 – 21, 2010
at the Best Western Inn Towne Hotel, Downtown Milwaukee
Reservations only; seating is extremely limited!
Directed by Juanita Schuelke and Fjosh Redbeard
Featuring Rob Maass, Matt Kemple and Gwen Zupan
We began rehearsals a few weeks ago, and the show is really coming together. It’s a great script, and Stephen Belber’s writing is deep and profound – a real “actors play”. There are so many levels of power and corruption that seep into the characters of Vince and Jon, it has truly been a joy to work on this show.
