Every last member of the cast of The Lucky One sounds credibly born and bred in old Blighty … Cheers to all and to dialect coach/dramaturg Amy Stoller for their stellar work in this area.
Michael Portantiere, Talkin' Broadway
on The Lucky One
Performances of the Mint Theater production of A.A. Milne’s The Lucky One, directed by Jesse Marchese, have been extended through July 2, at the Beckett at Theatre Row. Dialect design and dramaturgy by yours truly.
Anna Deavere Smith’s Notes From The Field, directed by Leonard Foglia at Second Stage, is still racking up plaudits. On May 23, Anna received an Obie Special Citation for Notes From The Field; on May 7, the production received the 2017 Lucille Lortel Award for Solo Show. Congratulations to Anna as creator, writer, and performer; to Lortel nominee Elaine McCarthy for outstanding projection design; and to the rest of our wonderful, extensive team. It takes a lot of people to put a solo show together and give it a good home. I'm proud to be part of this crowd.
