Week Twenty Five: Prologue
Happy Thursday! Welcome back to Acting Class Daily. Today we’re personalizing the work with a themed knicknack from this week’s class, a formative moment of magic … and, most importantly, Bauer’s chance to say hello.
Prologue (The Phantom Lady - XRT, 2011)
When I think of moments where an audience is transported from their theatre seats to atmospheric worlds, my mind turns to … The Phantom Lady .
Embracing the archetypal themes and characters from the play, and the decision to thread it with music from The Nutcracker Suite, we begin with two siblings discovering a hidden attic of dusty dolls forgotten to the world.
Here’s the Prologue … right through to our play’s first words.
Here’s a favorite picture of mine, capturing the taste of discovery in our Atmosphere Work.
