Let's Connect With ... Cassandra Moselle
Happy Tuesday! Welcome to Acting Class Daily. Each week we make a Kindred Connection with new members of our community - learning about formative moments, experiencing a few of their favorite things, tasting their artistic heart, and getting a look into their very soul.
#KindredConnect … Cassandra Moselle
In the 10th grade I had to do a book report on an Italian Renaissance painter. There was only one woman painter on the entire list. I told my teacher I wanted to do my report on Artemisia Gentileschi. My teacher told me that there wasn't a lot of information on a woman painter and it would be easier if I picked one of the male painters. Adamantly, I stuck to my choice and have not only read many biographies about her life but I've traveled to see for myself every single one of her famous paintings (sans one) in person. And if that doesn't tell you my life story in a nutshell I don't know what will.

Share a moment when you experienced the best of yourself as an artist.
The post-show whisky toast, as I was riding a high of endorphins, having packed a house at the Edinburg Fringe Festival. It was a grind but I'd trade it all in to do it again, producing and performing in a damn good show.
