Boy Gets Girl

The year is finally winding down and it's time for our last Studio Show of the season, Rebecca Gilman's Boy Gets Girl. With a stunning cast of 7, this show is sure to impress. It's the story of a blind date gone horribly wrong. First year MFA Directing Candidate, Kristin Fox has been working with her cast for the last several weeks and is proud of the work they've done. "They each bring something different to the table and have been really open to the more organic style of directing that is my preferred way of working."

Though the Studio Shows are always pressed for rehearsal time, Fox didn't have the cast on the stage right away. "I always start with at least a week's worth of table work. I find that the time spent talking things out and crafting the characters in a safe - round table like setting creates an extra layer of richness and depth to the characters once the actors get up on their feet and start moving around the space."

And it shows! The cast is dynamic and they work extremely well together. You have 3 more chances to see this show! Tonight, Friday and Saturday are the final performances, all at 7:30 in the Andreas Theatre. See you there! :)
