In rehearsal:

The Suitcase Under the Bed, four short plays by Teresa Deevy, directed by Jonathan Bank at the Mint. Performances begin July 21 at the Beckett at Theatre Row.

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.

on The Lucky One

The Mint Theater Company production of A.A. Milne’s The Lucky One, directed by Jesse Marchese, enjoyed a successful run at the Beckett at Theatre Row. Dialect design and dramaturgy by yours truly. Here are  Paton Ashbrook as Pamela and Ari Brand as Bob Farringdon.

Anna Deavere Smith recreates her speakers’ inflections and rhythms with an exactitude that comes only with hard study .… We become vividly aware of nuances of phrasing and tone that we would be unlikely to catch if we were watching the same people on television. (Amy Stoller is her dialect coach.)
