In a recent review of "The Clearing" our theater critic wrote that Drama Desk Award-winning director Josh Hecht "keeps his audience completely captive...and his work with the cast is nothing short of terrific." (Read the full review here.) Written by Jake Jeppson, the play follows two brothers who climb to the top of a gorge where they roast marshmallows, tell stories, and remember a long-buried secret that comes to the surface when one brother's love interest digs a little too deep. With a wonderfully realistic set by Daniel Zimmerman and a magnetic ensemble of actors, there are many reasons to see this mysteriously compelling play.
StageBuddy's Glenn Quentin caught up with actors Allison Daugherty, Gene Gallerano, Brian McManamon, and Brian P. Murphy to chat about the rehearsal process, their characters, and what this play evokes.
