Have you seen Dan Walls’ videos of rehearsals and interviews with actors?
I’ll post a link soon for those averse to Facebook!
There’s also a glimpse of behind the scenes at Bloomsday on Tintean, the free online Irish-Australian magazine. As you’ll gather from the videos, rehearsing Portrait is an intense and (mostly!) joyful experience.
Update on the booking situation:
- A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (the centrepiece play at fortyfivedownstairs theatre)
Bookings have been stronger this year than for many years, and already, well over a week out, the play on Bloomsday itself (Thursday 16 June) is fully booked. Sorry, to those of our patrons who didn’t leap in soon enough. However, it’s not all doom and gloom, as although bookings for the Preview (Wed.), 17 June (Friday) and 19 June (Sunday) are strong, there are still seats available, and a lot more on Saturday. So, suggest you get in soon by phoning the theatre (03 9662 9966) on or going online.
