PHOTO EXCLUSIVE: A Two-Show Day With How to Be a New Yorker Writer and Star Margaret Copeland
How to Be a New Yorker, the Off-Broadway comedy written and performed by Margaret Copeland and Kevin James Doyle, now plays The Screening Room Theater at Planet Hollywood Times Square. Copeland shares a recent two-show day with Playbill.com.
Just woke up! Immediately I slip into my robe and slippers and off to the coffee maker I go.
Nothing kicks your a** like a Refine Method class with founder and teacher Brynn Putnam, one of my favorite ways to sweat.
Back home my sister Beatrice is cooking up some perfect pumpkin pancakes.
Uh Oh! I'm running a little late. I hope the B, D trains are running smoothly today :/ I hope Olivia doesn't write me up in the performance report...
There's my Stage Manager Olivia Gemelli....Stern for a second but happy to see me so we can start cracking jokes. She's the best and the Boss.
This guy! Kevin James Doyle, my comedic other half and co-writer. I check in with him and he gives me 2 thumbs up which means it was a late night but he's feeling good!
Makeup time! "Olivia, do I have too much blush on?" Kevin, "You have too much everything on" "Shut up Kevin! Olivia?"
Let's stretch it out. Gosh these pants are tight.
Kevin and I fight like brother and sister but at the end of the day we love each other...
