STAGE VIEWS: All in the Timing Star Matthew Saldivar
16 Feb 2013
Playbill.com's series features actors commenting on their recent theatregoing experiences, what productions they're looking forward to and more. Here, via email, we hear from actor Matthew Saldivar, who is part of the cast of the Primary Stages 20th anniversary revival of David Ives' All in the Timing, which recently opened at 59E59 Theaters.
What show recently impressed you? The last show that I saw that really impressed me was Peter and the Starcatcher. I saw it right before I took over the role of Black Stache. It's very interesting to see a show from the outside and then take it apart from the inside and put it back together.
What production are you most excited to see? I'm looking forward to seeing Anna Khaja's Shaheed: The Dream and Death of Benazir Bhutto at the Culture Project.
What play/musical would you most like to revive on Broadway, and which role would you want to play? I would love to play Tom in a great Broadway production of A Glass Menagerie.
What are your current/upcoming projects? I'm currently trying to create a musical/theatrical piece adapted from the classic Mexican revolution novel "Los de Abajo (The Underdogs)."
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
