|Kevin Fennessy and Erin Eva Butcher:|
Chekhov on the Catwalk
We were a big hit. We strode out together, got to the end of our runway and busted a few dance moves. Then I slid out of my woolen jacket and cap, dragged it behind on a runway sashay to the hoots and hollers from the theater crowd. Erin paraded back, and we stomped off together. Motivated by the heat of the night and in the heat of the moment I made my few minutes on the catwalk count.
And don't think I'd miss the opportunity to remind you, again, that the award-winning production of UNCLE VANYA is returning by popular demand, at the Chelsea Theater Works, from October 10 thru Nov. 4, Wed. thru Sun. evenings. The original production's cast members Erin Eva Butcher (Sonia), Ron Lacey (Astrov, nominated for an Elliot Norton Award), Ann Marie Shea (Maria), Ann Carpenter (Nanny), Mike Handelman (Workman/Musician), and I (Telegin, AKA "Waffles") are joined by newcomers Diego Arcienegas (Vanya), Gordon Jack Schultz (Professor), and Kate Paulsen (Elena). Directed by Danielle Fauteux Jacques, Apollinaire Artistic Director and recipient of the 2012 Elliot Norton Award for Outstanding Directing/Fringe for this production. Last winter we sold out every show, and many were shut out. With an audience limited to 30 members per performance, many shows are selling out already. Don't miss it this time.
