I'm Reviewed in the New York Times!

I'm very excited to announce that my production of DUTCHMAN, by Amiri Baraka produced by my theater company The Seeing Place Theater was reviewed by Maya Phillips of the New York Times, with my photo front and center!



Part of the review reads:
"The Seeing Place production, which starred Timothy Ware and Erin Cronican and was directed by Brandon Walker, highlighted the sexual friction between Clay and Lula. Cronican’s Lula gives Clay a lusty up and down, hungrily takes bites of her apple, a seductive smile creeping across her face. Ware’s Clay smirks gamely in response; he seems mostly unbothered by her odd diversions and casually racist remarks and appears to lust back...By underlining the sexual power dynamic between the man and the woman, Walker’s direction simplifies the larger reach of the play and what the characters represent. The tension becomes less about the matchup of Blackness and whiteness in society than about the interracial fraternization of one Black man and one white woman..."

We also appear in the PRINT EDITION - with a teaser image on the front page of the Arts section:

  1. Is the Seeing Place production still available to watch?
    I have known Jennifer Mudge, a fellow Rhode Island, for decades.

    1. Hi there! For our production we had to end streaming based on the union contract we were on. But Jennifer's production, which is different than ours (I played the same role as her) has another performance tonight, I think.
