Introducing Jimmy Ray Bennett

October 6, 2008

Greetings, fellow Prospect groupies.  Chris here, live on location at Epiphany Studios with your Illyria update.

Today is indeed an exciting day as we are adding in the otherworldly talents of Mister Jimmy Ray Bennett to our rehearsal process. Jimmy Ray had his first rehearsal a number of weeks ago, and has since been working at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts as a part of “Broadway – Three Generations.”  Today is his first rehearsal with the rest of the cast.  In the meantime, the masterful Jed Peterson has been standing in and his assistance has been absolutely integral to the process.  Like I said, the guy’s a master.

Jimmy Ray brings a New and Fascinating energy to Malvolio’s scenes (I used to say “interesting energy” but Jimmy Ray took severe offense to the non-specificity of said word.  Even though he was kidding, I have taken the note and am now taking greater care in my use of adjectives).   This is always an interesting Fascinating transition to witness as the other actors receive their cues in New and Different ways than those they are used to. It also colors the show a little Differently on a whole.  All in all, it’s very interesting Fascinating to watch the transition from Masterful to Otherworldly.  INTERESTING FASCINATING!

So the whole show’s going to be Stellar.  Please take the time to look up the definitions of each adjective used so far in this post as they are carefully selected, by me, for you to read and not misunderstand.  When I say Stellar I mean of or relating to a star or stars, that is to say, “out of this world.”  For real, we’re doing the show on the moon (Hudson Guild Theatre, 441 West 26th St.).

Until next time, Illyrians!
