Sunday on Stage

June 18, 2010

By Maureen Torsney-Weir, cast member of Sunday in the Park with George

Well here we are in the middle of our run of Sunday in the Park with George212 We’ve been through an exhausting (though completely worth it) tech and previews, > seen an exhilarating opening night and now are doing eight shows a week of this fabulous show.

I play the Old Lady and the critic Blair Daniels in Sunday.  It’s fun to hear the audience murmuring when I come out to the “Blair Bling” in Act 2: “Is that the same woman who was the old lady?”. Thanks to Terry Nolen and our wonderful costume designer, Rosemarie McKelvey – I do look different! Its a funny thing, but as a painfully shy person in my private life, I am completely comfortable on stage.

Through the lives of the characters I get to play, I am most fully myself onstage.  Terry Nolen, who I’ve been lucky to have done 5 plays directed by him, says he wants to see our souls onstage.  Come see to see the souls of a most extraordinary company of people!
