  • Portraying Maria: Life on stage with Sarah Amengual | The Current
    of been hooked ever since You played Maria on Broadway as well What does the role of Maria mean to you I got to work with the writer of the book Arthur Laurents who was the director of the production and is also a Broadway legend It was my first job out of college To go straight from Broadway to go work with a Broadway legend to work on such a beautiful piece that truly transcends the theatrical and nontheatrical communities a show that everyone knows It s such a powerful show that s still powerfully and culturally relevant The musical is as beautiful as ever The dancing is as picturesque and gorgeous as ever I couldn t be more thrilled and it s wonderful to play a role that has so many different levels to it She s not just a sweet girl She s also a strong woman Do you think you share anything in common with Maria I met my husband when I was 15 so I definitely know what it s like to fall in love hard and fast so I can definitely relate to that I m also Puerto Rican so I have that in common What was it like to live in New York and be on the big stage Wonderful and terrifying and so exciting The first time I had a private rehearsal scheduled with Arthur I got locked in my elevator of my building so all I could think about was I m going to be late because I m locked in an elevator somewhere I was never actually nervous while I was on stage but I was nervous that I would get out there and it would just overwhelm me But luckily I had really wonderful cast mates and supportive scene partners who kept me right there with them Even though it was such a huge house we felt like it was just the two of us How did you prepare for your current role For this role I wanted to go back and re explore it because it s very much a gift to be given the opportunity to do a role a second time It s a very common feeling among actors that the day you finish the show is the day you finally feel like you understand the character It s the day you finally feel like you understand all of the choices you have been making So I was at that point but now I can come back and come up with new choices and find ways to improve it and make it more exciting and more relevant to this production because it s all new people How does the dynamic of the new cast work There are the nicest group of people you could possibly meet Truly everyone in this cast is so sweet and lovely and they make everyone feel at ease and comfortable They are just amazing people I have nothing but glowing wonderful

  • Interview with an elder from “The Book of Mormon” | The Current
    the process so I don t think anybody knew the type they were looking for You know it s a Broadway hit Why not audition for it I did and you know what It went really well for me apparently You had roles in a variety of different plays from Camelot to The Producers to Miss Saigon What was your favorite play to be a part of and why So I started with musical theater in Wichita which is a wonderful regional theater to grow up with I got to do a lot of shows in college with them and they bring in a lot of talent from like the big schools in the Midwest so I got to work with them I never had a favorite show I really loved doing Miss Saigon It was one of my favorite shows to be a part of I really loved being a part of The Producers as well The two are completely different types of shows but I would say those two were my favorites out of the numbers I got to do Chitty Chitty Bang Bang I believe I did in the Midwest in Lyric Theater in Oklahoma and I got to work with a really great choreographer Joanne Hunter who really pushed me to dance even more than I could at that level so I think each show that I did in those theaters I learned something new from I learned a lot and being someone who was very green in the theater world which just means very new to the business I learned a lot from them and they taught me a lot It was a struggle for a lot of years but I think it s paying off What do you relate to the most with your character Elder McKinley He wants to be the best he can absolutely be and I think when I was McKinley s age I wanted so badly to be the perfect person and do everything right There s always a method to fixing things like We ll just take deep breaths and everything s OK or for McKinley it s We ll turn it off or for Daxton it s OK I m going to keep a smile on my face I think we related a lot there But where I ve been able to learn and where McKinley learns in the show is being yourself is what is perfect The imperfections are what make you perfect In the show you get to see McKinley grow and learn it s OK to be who he is and that s actually what is perfect Is there a particular scene you love the most I love Turn It Off That s Elder McKinley s big number It s the hardest number I do in the show and it s probably the most rewarding I think the audience really comes out loving it too If I have to pick a number that I m

  • From fiction to film: Interview with ‘The 5th Wave’ author | The Current
    of I m on my own and how am I going to navigate and survive in a world that s so foreign to me and to everything that I ve known before Certainly that s one of the major themes of the book I mean obviously it s in an alien apocalyptic setting which is not very usual but you can look at that as sort of a metaphor of being forced to grow up As an author what did you think of the adaptation process Was there anything that surprised you I think I m luckier than a lot of writers to have my writing adapted The rights to the film were picked out before I even finished the book They were picked up shortly after the book was purchased by Penguin Publishing I was in that process pretty much from the very beginning although I did not have a hand in adapting my work which is probably a good idea because movies are not books and books are not movies There are demands that are possible in books that aren t possible in movies and vice versa and I always try to keep that in mind as we move through the process but the short answer is yeah I was pretty involved I wasn t there on a daily basis for the shoot I was working on a different book at the time but the days I was there I had regular talks with the producers and the director From what I have seen I think that fans of the book will be very pleased with how the filmmakers have captured those core stories and how they ve done the characters What is the one thing you hope to see come out of this movie adaptation of your book I don t know I mean I haven t seen it yet but I was in for some if the filming and from what I had seen I think the filmmakers were very cognizant of the fact that what really sets this story apart is the heart of it the characters and what drives them as ordinary people in just extraordinary circumstances That s the kind of story I love to read and to see on film and I think they really worked very hard to capture the essence of that What was the deeper message you were trying to get across from the book at first and what message do you hope to get across from the movie When you write for young people you have to be careful about the whole message thing because no one likes to be preached at especially young people Message is something that I kind of let grow organically as I tell the story My first goal is to never bore people because I feel like as a writer particularly in this genre your major goal is to entertain You can tell a story and have a very deep reverberating message but

  • Talking with Toxie the Toxic Avenger | The Current
    It s kind of like one character but it s really two The hapless hero falls in love with the town librarian who only loves him because she s blind How long does it take you to prepare for a role like this We have three weeks of rehearsal before we open the show Naturally when you hear you re being cast in a show you familiarize yourself with the music and once the script comes in you start reading it Personally I don t like to memorize things immediately I like to be familiar with something I find that if I memorize all my lines before I hear what anyone else is going to say I tend to not listen to the person I just talk at them What other plays have you been in My last play in an Actors Playhouse play was First Date last March Before that I was Miracle on South Division Street The most recent show that I was in that was not Actors Playhouse was the concert series of Palm Beach Dramaworks They did concert versions of some of my music What s different about the roles you played in the past compared to your role now as the Toxic Avenger The last show that I was in I was cast as the town jock the guy who s sure of himself Well this is the exact polar opposite In the beginning of the show I m shy and weak I m very self conscious and unsure of myself And then I become this superhero and am still in essence very unsure of myself That goes against what I m cast as normally which is someone who s very confident How does an average day of rehearsal go for you It s like a normal job Instead of working 9 to 5 we go from 2 to10 p m As soon as we get there we go over some music and if we have any questions we address those immediately Then we go right into the beginning stages of rehearsal This is part of the process where the director says we have to bake the cake first and then we can ice it later In what ways if any can you relate to your character Even though I know I m cast as confident people I m still very much a nerd at heart I m still afraid to talk to girls I m very unsure of myself and like most actors I m also extremely self conscious It s really easy to relate to my character in the beginning Then once I emerge in this 20 pound rubber muscle suit covered in mutant boils it was easy to relate to because I love the Marvel and DC superhero comics So it was really fun to walk around and be a superhero for a couple hours a day What do you want people to know about your character Just know that he s

    it to see the rest Did you ever think you would star in the Broadway production Actually before I started rehearsals I had never seen the movie all the way through so I had no idea I would be doing this I actually have a friend who told me about the audition and I ended up going and it ended up happening for me I definitely didn t see this in my plans but I did see myself performing and singing on stage so it all worked out Can you describe your journey leading up to getting this role How did you get started I ve always had a love for singing I ve been singing since I was a little girl in my church When I got to middle school I joined the choir and in high school I was in theater and I did a lot of plays and I really loved it My first musical was The Wizard of Oz and that was just such a great experience After that I went to college in San Antonio Texas and I worked professionally at Six Flags and SeaWorld as a singer and dancer So I ve just been doing this for a while I kind of stopped for a little bit I went to nursing school and my friend called me and was like You gotta come audition This is perfect for you So I went and auditioned and here I am What s is like touring It s fun It s definitely something I probably would have never done had I not been on this tour You get to see a lot of places you necessarily wouldn t have seen We re going to Alaska in a couple of weeks and that s a place I would have never planned on going so the tour is allowing me to do that Also we re going to Tokyo Japan It s just a nice opportunity to see things and do things you typically wouldn t do How long did you train for your part We started rehearsal Sept 1 and we opened Oct 14 so that was about six weeks of rehearsal I do a little bit of running and cardio and at first I was not totally 100 percent prepared for the role because it s a really high energy show A lot of people don t realize that the musical itself is a lot of moving a lot of dancing so you really have to have stamina Are you able to relate with your character in any way I would say so Delores learns a lot about herself in the play For me through my journey I ve learned so much about what really matters in life and I think part of playing her is revealing that part of the character to the audience How is it working with your cast mates It s fun Everyone has such a good time together This is one of
