Eyes on Actors: Kate Lass

Let’s meet the supremely rad Kate Lass! Recent Unrehearsed roles Kate has scrolled include Auffidius in Coriolanus, and Sebastian in Twelfth Night.

Q: What can the audience expect from an Unrehearsed production of Two Gents?
KATE: A completely engaging experience. You can yell at the characters! And in this play, you will probably want to!

Q: What’s your favorite show from last season? Why?
KATE: Richard II was really exciting for me. I wasn’t as familiar with it as the others, which is always fun, and we got to see some great performances, especially from our newer company members.

Q: You and your BBF are going on an all-expenses paid trip! Where do you go?
KATE: London, Italy, and then a cabin in the woods for a while.

Q: Love makes…?
KATE: Babies. Occasionally.

Q: What’s next for you?
KATE: I’m assistant directing a reading of Richard III with Unbound Theatre Co and Midsommer Flight, fight choreographing Romeo and Juliet at Teatro Vista, and acting in Stranger on the River at Bittersweet Arts Co.

What role(s) is Kate playing? Come see her performances on April 10th & 17th to find out!

Eyes on Actors: Erin Caswel

Our first night of Two Gents is *exactly* a fortnight away!

Let’s meet the undeniably cool Erin Caswell Brutscher, who gave us a tickling turn as Constable Elbow in last year’s Unrehearsed Measure for Measure:

Q: What can the audience expect from an Unrehearsed production of Two Gentlemen of Verona?
ERIN: Lots of creativity in movement, stage pictures, and unexpected audience participation

Q: “What’s your favorite show from last season? Why?”
ERIN: Measure for Measure. It was a work of Shakespeare’s I had never read or seen

Q: You and your BBF are going on an all-expenses paid trip! Where do you go?
ERIN: Germany, Austria, and Switzerland

Q: Love makes…?
ERIN: Everything better!

Q: What’s next for you?
ERIN: More stage combat and voice lessons!

Eyes on Actors: Jessica Goforth

TWO GENTS is but a fortnight away, let’s meet our intrepid players!

Jessica Goforth, the ultimate warrior queen, has previously rocked the scroll with The Unrehearsed Shakespeare Company in Twelfth Night ’18 as Maria, in Coriolanus as Volumnia, and in Richard II as the Duchess of York.

Q:What can the audience expect from an Unrehearsed production of Two Gentlemen of Verona?
JESSICA: They can’t. One of the things I love about Unrehearsed is that anything can happen. The audience has no idea what’s going to go down, and neither does the cast!

Q:What’s your favorite show from last season? Why?
JESSICA: I had never seen or read Richard II, and I was struck at how good it was – the pacing moved quickly, the verse was beautifully written and the tragedy was heartbreaking. I wish people did this show more often!

Q:You and your BBF are going on an all-expenses paid trip! Where do you go?

Q: Love makes…?
JESSICA:…a giant mess of things but it’s probably worth it…?

Q:What’s next for you?
JESSICA: An Enemy of the People with Goodman Theatre (March 10 – April 15, use code ENEMYCAST for 50% off tickets!), I’m also understudying Down The Rocky Road And All The Way To Bedlam with Otherworld Theatre, and I’m going on May 3-6.

Another disquieting romp through toxic masculinity, Two Gents tells the story of how a Love -Connection becomes a Love-Triangle, then a Love-Parallelogram, then a sort of Love-Gordian-Knot. Clever servants, clever lovers who impersonate clever servants, True Love and a bit with a dog! You’ll find yourself asking “Who is Sylvia?” before wondering aloud, “Who in their right mind would think these men should be allowed to act this way?”

Coriolanus at the Public House Theater

Buy your tickets here!

We close our seventh season with Coriolanus, the Roman tragedy that pits elitism against ignorance. Hero of the patricians and blight to the plebeians, Caius Martius has been instrumental in Rome’s military victories, particularly those with the Volsces and their commander, the tremendous warrior Auffidius. But when Martius is rewarded for his latest victory with a new honor, he soon discovers that power comes with a price; a price he is unwilling to pay. With petty, gossiping commons and an insufferably elitist lead, it’s hard to say who the hero of this story is. But in true Unrehearsed style, the audience gets to make that decision for themselves: in the moment, moment to moment.
