On the villain. . .

Last spring I was thrilled to be a part of the Raven Theatre cast that brought THE OLD FRIENDS to the midwest.  (And only the second full production in the U.S.)  I got close and cuddly with Julia Price, a brash, glamorous, desperate villain of a gal who will stop at nothing to retain her position as beauty queen, power broker and man magnet in Harrison, Texas.  Stuck in a forced marriage with a man she hates, she is a lonely, angry gal who has filled the emptiness and lack of love in her life with booze, men, and vanity that is carefully preserved with her big, big bank account.   That loneliness is carefully masked with a brittle gaiety, charm and acidity that breaks only when pushed to the farthest extreme.  In the meantime, she'll cut your legs out from under you as soon as look at you.  Cross her at your peril boys and girls.

And what did I discover?  A deeper understanding of fear and loneliness as powerful negative energy sources.  And playing the villain is a blast.
