Critics Picks November 25

Paula Cale in the role of Heather and Vonessa Martin in the role of Corryn
A parent-teacher conference in a fifth-grade classroom. Paula Cale’s Heather is the teacher at the end of her rope; Vonessa Martin’s Corryn is a mom clearly on edge. Their brilliant performances elevated Johnna Adams’s taut two-hander into a riveting and unforgettable event. When either actor appears again, or if the production returns somewhere, don’t pass up a chance to be present.
—Bob Verini

Jack Stehlin in the role of Gustav
Jack Stehlin does a great “commanding.” He does a great “creepy.” So, when given a chance to do “commanding” and “creepy” in one production, the combination is stellar. And yet his performance as a wronged husband in August Strindberg’s not-oft-produced Creditors includes surprising colors. Is his character coldly manipulative, or is he desperately hiding enormous sadness? Stehlin leaves it to his enraptured audiences to guess.


AND FROM NEW YORK...

Jefferson Mays in the roles of the D’Ysquith family
Playing eight members of an eccentric upper-crust British family, Jefferson Mays gives new meaning to the phrase tour de force. Switching personalities and Linda Cho’s elegant Edwardian costumes with lightning speed, Mays draws laughs with a raised eyebrow or an upward inflection, creating a gallery of hilarious grotesques. Don’t be surprised if he gets another Tony Award to accompany the one he won for I Am My Own Wife, in which he plays 40 characters.
—David Sheward

Role: PROBATION OFFICER
Represented By: Domina & Associates Talent Agency

Additional Notes: LaVelle LaRue is a great theatrical performer, who happens to also be an all around comedian. Built like a real life action hero, one can easily see that he is "made" to play authoritative and very deep expressive roles. Even his comedy comes from a dark place, as a way of healing from real life events. The intense emotion that he displays with just his eyes alone have the power to dramatically change the vibe of a room, whether good or bad. No matter what the performance is, HE BRINGS IT! http://DominaTalent.com http://www.imdb.com/name/nm5253432/ @LaVelleLaRue http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AM0c8cb0mes

Critics Picks November 18


Gregory North in the role of Juror Three,
Playing Juror Three, Gregory North perfectly fills the plum role of the loud, bullying businessman who threatens other jurors with his unyielding opinions.
—Melinda Schupmann

Nicholas Ullett in the role of The Doctor,
With gleeful abandonment, Nicholas Ullett entwines himself within the persona of the kingdom’s all-purpose arbiter of life and death.
—Julio Martinez

Sandy Yu in the role of Girlie,
Sandy Yu’s Girlie, absorbing her life’s experiences as layered armor, slowly evolves from relentlessly happy but naïve American TV–loving Filipina country girl to a sadder-but-wiser woman who now knows how to control her own destiny.
—Julio Martinez




AND FROM NEW YORK...

Mark Rylance in the roles of Olivia and Richard III
In a dazzling tour de force, Mark Rylance tackles a pair of diverse Shakespearean roles in repertory. In keeping with Elizabethan tradition, all the female roles are played by men in these productions and Rylance makes a convincing Olivia, the icy lady whose mournful exterior melts when she encounters a beautiful youth (who happens to be a maiden in disguise) in Twelfth Night. His feminine reserve turns to schoolgirl giddiness as Olivia falls in love. In Richard III, he endows the tyrannical usurper with a devilish sense of humor, all the more horrifying when contrasted with his evil machinations—including murdering half his family to get to the throne. In both roles, Rylance creates the illusion that these immortal lines are being spoken for the first time, which alone is worth the price of two admissions.
