"Three Sisters" by Anton Chekhov is obviously my favorite Studio Project ever, with Irina Sergeyevna Prozorov my favorite role in my Juilliard journey so far. This is my most personal work to date and I can't believe there would be a studio project that would top my first year, Discovery Project ("Pericles" by William Shakespeare) experience. It's interesting that my first and last Studio Projects became the most memorable thus far.
On the evening before the first showing of Three Sisters, we received a ticket offer for Lillian Hellman's "The Little Foxes" starring Laura Linney as "Regina" and Cynthia Nixon as "Birdie" at the Samuel Friedman Theater on Broadway. I normally make use of the night before showings to get some rest but this offer was too good an opportunity to pass up. There was a pre-show reception at the Glass House Tavern across the theater (cocktails and all!) and a post-show meeting with Laura Linney for Juilliard students, alumna and donors.
I was helping out organize souvenir programs as part of my ushering work-study last Saturday for the third-year Shakespeare Repertory productions of Cymbeline and Henry V (fantastic work by Group 47) when I was thrilled to see new flyers for the upcoming 50th Anniversary of the Juilliard Drama Division!
Clockwise from top: Robin Williams (Group 6), Viola Davis (Group 22), Laura Linney (Group 19), Jessica Chastain (Group 32), Jimmie Jeter & Chelsea Williams (Group 45), and Jayme, Anthony and I (Group 48) are in the center flyer.
We are on our last week of classes before our summer begins. I cannot wait.
