Bianca LaVerne Jones as Camae

Bianca LaVerne Jones’s glorious, mischievous, and deeply sensitive interpretation of Camae. Her work on stage defines the word “protean” – she enters the scene like a lightening bolt (indeed, if memory serves, she enters with one) and immediately electrifies…

Wendy Arons

Camae is not what she initially seems, and although it would be a disservice to anyone who has not seen or read this play to give away here what we discover about her, I do not feel it is too much of a spoiler to reveal that what we think is going to turn into an evening of seduction becomes, instead, an evening of revelations, both literal and figurative.

“The Mountaintop” at City Theatre

The setting of Katori Hall’s play The Mountaintop (currently running at City Theatre) reveals nearly everything we need to know about what is at stake in the action: “Room 306 at the Lorraine Motel, Memphis, Tennessee, April 3, 1968” – the evening before Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated on the balcony outside that very room. It is a dark and stormy night; and the cliché of that opening seems a deliberate one, an early indication of the play’s interest in taking its audience on a journey from stereotype and “what we (think we) know” to the unexpected surprises that are revealed when clichés, stereotypes, and everything we (think we) know is subjected to closer inspection.

LONDON BOUND!

I leave in two months for London where I have been accepted into the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts for Directing.

The school accepts six (6) Directors a year.
There is a lot for me to accomplish in a short period of time.  I was accepted into LAMDA on  Saturday, June 18, on my first day of rehearsal in West Virginia at the Contemporary American Theater Festival at 1:52pm.  Rehearsal started at 2 pm and I was just walking into the rehearsal room.   Imagine me backing out of the room with an eager look on my face when I saw the call coming in from London!

Getting the acceptance was great but it was late in the summer and only allows me three months to prepare finances, visas, housing, books and warm clothes.

I need your help.  If you will please assist me in giving to my GOFUNDME.

I will be extremely grateful.  In my past you have seen me succeed in my endeavors and I plan to succeed at LAMDA as well.  I will come back to America a  stronger woman and a more accomplished artist with a sharp Master’s degree in Directing from the “Yale of London”.

Please consider that your monies will go directly toward a text book, a play, an Oyster card, rent or some “blacks”.  You can donate with this in mind. (smile)

Please spread this email.  I am in West Virginia and I won’t be home in NYC until August 1.
