The actors live on the site where the theatre is located, so us New Yorkers don’t have to worry about subways or long travels. In many ways, it’s a vacation. The best part of course is that we actors get to do what we love every day. Nothing better than that. As far as this cast is concerned, each actor has already done a considerable amount of homework and memorization, so when we arrive on the 27th, we can hit the ground running the next morning. And with British accents, you want to be as prepared as you possibly can be. It’ll be a wonderful process. The process of putting it all together is why I love it. It’s work, but it’s also where the fun is. I look forward to laughing a lot in rehearsals.
Lastly, how do you think the Danville audience is going to react to a play about a man who commits bigamy?
Look, this is not a Harold Pinter or Tony Kushner play. The play doesn’t set out to make any broad strokes. Ray Cooney wrote a play with one objective: Make ‘ em laugh and keep ‘ em laughing. That’s what we hope to do.
