September 8 - October 8, 2017 Metropolitan Playhouse 220 E. 4th St. NYC
After a thoroughly enjoyable run as Belgian orphan Marthe in Metropolitan's 2014 production of The Hero, I'm beyond happy to return to Metropolitan to play a decidedly un-orphaned and altogether insufferable young lady of society, Clara Hunter, in The Climbers. It's a hilarious 1901 play chock-full of tragedy, social-climbing, and flirting with married men. I can't wait.
* * * Very funny... The excellent company of actors... work effectively as an ensemble and mine the characters for their inherent silliness and pathos without resorting to caricature. -- Talkin' Broadway
"Warm-blooded, frolicsome and splendidly cast, this production at the 47th Street Theater leads with its heart. Nimbly played, the lively young lovers seem as if they could live down the Street...They swoon, and we feel their rapture. They torment one another, and we pity their pain. When something is funny, which is often, the audience bubbles with belly laughter. The quality of mirth here is not strained, not even close, and thank goodness for that."
