That's right readers, Alexandra Silber here, back and ready to [over]share! Well, with such a lovely response from all of you how could I stay away?
The truth is I just couldn't resist sharing a bit more from behind the scenes at Manhattan Theatre Club's revival of Master Class starring Tyne Daly at The Samuel J. Friedman Theatre!
Wait, does this make it a serial?! A serial deserves a proper title. Hmm... perhaps...
"Are you there God? It's Me Sophie."
"Sophie Knows What You Did Last Summer"
"Sophie De Palma Explains it All For You?"
Regardless... I bring you, with unabashed "Sophie Geek-Chic" pleasure:
"The Adventures of Sophie and Sharon!"
You see, Sierra Boggess (who plays soprano Sharon Graham) and I are having so much fun together offstage, we wanted to give you our very own sneak peek at all this said fun.
Do we spend every day off together? Maybe. Did we turn our dressing room at The Friedman into a character-related Juilliard dorm room? You betcha.
Wanna take a closer look at all this adorable insanity? It is just a click away.
According to MTC, "Terrence McNally's play about Maria Callas (Tyne Daly) takes us to one of her famous master classes, where, late in her own career, she dares the next generation to make the same sacrifices and rise to the same heights that made her the most celebrated, the most reviled and the most controversial singer of her time."
Stephen Wadsworth directs a cast that also features Olivier Award nominee Sierra Boggess (as Sharon Graham), Clinton Brandhagen (as Stagehand), Jeremy Cohen (as Emmanuel Weinstock), Drama Desk Award winner Alexandra Silber (as Sophie De Palma) and Garrett Sorenson (as Anthony Candolino).
