COOL STUFF BY PEOPLE I KNOW: THE WOMEN OF MASTERMIND

Here's some stuff by the women who worked on the productions of Mastermind that have gone up this year (so far). This is what they're doing now and that you should endeavor to check 'em out.

MANUSCRIPT - KATHARINE BRANDT
Mastermind - Liz

Katharine originated the role of Liz in the premiere production of Mastermind, the one-night only show last April.

You can distinguish her in the photo by her being the one that is a her.

Katherine is one of the principals of Tall Blonde Productions, and not jsut for being a tall blonde, so that makes her both star and co-producer.

She told me of her plans to bring this play (herein lies a review of its Broadway run) to LA for its west coast premiere back when we in rehearsals for Mastermind. I was immediately intrigued by this tale of deception by people a little too clever for their own good. Aside from that, Katharine is a hellishly good actress, so I'm totally checking this out.

GROSS INDECENCY - SUSAN LEE & BETH RICKETSON
Mastermind - Director & Mastermind - Liz

Susan took Mastermind and really made it her own in its recent run at the Eclectic Company Theatre. Now, at said theatre of which she is a company member, she's directing Gross Indecency: The Three Trials of Oscar Wilde. With her keen eye and ability to reach into a piece and pull out the emotions buried within combined with the fact that that Oscar dude was wild, this should be a party (like it's 1899).

Also, it was written by Moises Kaufman, who's five kinds of hot these days. His 33 Variations was all over the last Tony Awards and he's prehaps best known as the writer behind The Laramie Project.

Featured in the cast is Beth Ricketson, who also played Liz. Another excellent actress who has a fantastic and piercing stage presence.

I'll be hitting this one as well. September should be a good month for live theatre. Again, click pix tix.
