Our Night of New Works continues at the Bryant-Lake Bowl this Friday! We’ve asked our toughest critics to share a few thoughts about all three pieces. Thank the lawd, our interns seem to like us! (Oh, and tickets are on sale now!)
Jessica Spivey recently graduated from the University of Minnesota Duluth where she studied Theatre and English. Besides spending time with the wonderful NNW cast and production team, she spends a lot of time with her cats, reading, playing Sushi Cat, and making general merriment. Sometimes she goes to work.
A Gamer's Guide to the Five Stages of Grief
A must-see for any gamer out there. Unfortunately, I was never allowed to play video games when I was a child, so if someone would like to teach me, I would appreciate it.
Christina Lein choreographed a beautiful and moving piece about the struggles that sometimes come hand-in-hand when teaching at a public school.
The Golden Carp.
A new opera is combined with puppetry. There's even shadow puppets. SHADOW PUPPETS.
This fall, Audrey Thayer is going to be a sophomore at Chapman University, located in Southern California, where she is double majoring in Theater and English. Audrey has acted in shows her whole life and recently became interested in not only being onstage, but being part of the backstage process as well. She is thankful for the endless support of her family, and the opportunity to be surrounded by the talented people of Savage Umbrella. Audrey hopes to take the knowledge she has learned from this summer and apply it in the Fall where she will hopefully be Assistant Stage Manager for several shows at her University.
A Gamer's Guide to the Five Stages of Grief.
If "gaming" was actually like how it is in Gamer, I would game. Who doesn't want an "orb of kick-assery" around them? Also, I was the true director of this show.
The ending of STOP makes me tear up every time. And I've seen it about a million times.
The Golden Carp
The Golden Carp is stuck in my head constantly - and Jessica and I attempt to sing all the parts backstage. Jessica has a lovely baritone voice.
