"Ethel Sings" opened off-Broadway today at The Beckett on Theatre Row. I get to play a myriad roles that include Robby Rosenberg - Ethel's six year old at the time of her execution, a menacing FBI agent, a lewd jailhouse cop, a gossipy court clerk and even a Brooklyn-born news reporter! Making such quick-fire changes of character without resorting to mad costume changes or broad caricaturing has been a welcome challenge. Heck, I even get to sing! What a great opportunity to stretch, expand and discover the self while working on this startlingly relevant work.
Hope to see you all there.
