Today's WTF Scoop - YOU BETTER SIT DOWN has begun and a TEN CENTS Love Affair?

On the Nikos Stage, our final show of the season, YOU BETTER SIT DOWN: TALES FROM MY PARENTS DIVORCE began performances last night and will open tonight! We spoke to members of our audience last night to hear what they had to say about the show.

When we gave Lauren Molina the flipcam last week, she did more than just introduce us to some of the cast, she uncovered a scandal! Are you curious? Watch the video below to find out what's REALLY been happening backstage (no cast members were harmed in the making of this video).

YOU BETTER SIT DOWN will run at the Nikos Stage until August 21. TEN CENTS A DANCE will run at the Main Stage until August 28. Tickets for both can be purchased in person at the box office, by calling (413) 597-3400, or in person here. Don't miss out!

Tonight, YOU BETTER SIT DOWN: TALES FROM MY PARENTS DIVORCE (our final show of the season!) begins performances at the Nikos Stage. Created by The Civilians, a New York-based theater company, which creates original work derived from investigations into the world beyond the theater, YOU BETTER SIT DOWN is a heartbreaking and hilarious play created from interviews between the cast and their parents. Take a look at this sneak preview!

YOU BETTER SIT DOWN will run at the Nikos Stage until August 21. Tickets can be purchased in person at the box office, by calling (413) 597-3400, or in person here. Don't miss out on this innovative new work.

Building a New World For a New Play: Spotlight On Design

It is often said, and rightfully so, that future careers in the theatre are forged here at WTF, and the alums of the design departments are no exception to this rule. Take, for instance, set designer David Korins and lighting designer Ben Stanton of She Stoops to Conquer and A Doll’s House. Both started out as interns, moved their way up, and now enjoy illustrious careers both at the Festival and beyond.

Flower Sample
Gabriel King and Jon Bass in The Comedy of Errors
Theatre artists are still being home-grown here today. Just two short weeks ago, a brand new play debuted as part of the Williamstown Workshop Department (which produces all Directing Intern and Directing Assistant projects). It was written by Jon Bass, a member of the Non-Equity acting corps who you may recognize as Dromio of Ephesus from this year’s Free Theatre production of The Comedy of Errors. Jon’s play, F***book (which was helmed by Directing Assistant Jason McDowell-Green) is the story of six twenty-somethings navigating the world of relationships, Furries, and midday margaritas In New York City, both on- and off-line.

A designer’s work is an exercise in both creativity and practicality. They must understand the piece and come up with effective (and often budget-conscious) ways to bring it to life. Collaborating with the other designers and the director, they must devise the best way to bring what’s on the page to the stage. When a new work is being done, with revisions and different elements added daily, the process provides even more unique challenges. We talked to one of the festival’s talented Scenic Design interns, Benson Knight, who provided the set for F***book. Here, he shares insight into his process as he worked on this brand new work.

How did you design for a script that is still undergoing changes?

Going into a project that is still under construction you have to know that a high level of adaptability is required. New pages are constantly being added and removed and it is your responsibility to keep up. Luckily with this script there were numerous different locations to create and this naturally lends for a scenic design that is very versatile. An alteration in the script or stage direction ended up being as easy as shifting around some chairs to create a new picture and acting movement.

How did you deal with the particular necessities of the play – multiple locations, fun tone, contemporary characters, etc.?

Flower Sample
One of the images Benson used as inspiration for the set
The two major acting areas were the guys’ and girls’ apartments. Both of these were much more fleshed out and personal to the characters so we chose these spaces to anchor the set. The various other smaller scenes would dance between these worlds. Responding to the abstract works of Barnett Newman and his severe separation of space with line, we created a network of light bulbs that formed a barrier between these two living spaces. It is underneath this lit network that many of the computer internet scenes took place.

Designing for a comedy also gave me a lot of liberty as to what colors I used, and the palette was bold and bright. The girls’ apartment was the softer of the two and had many earth tones of greens, browns, and charcoal grays. In contrast, the guys’ apartment focused more on saturated primary colors.

Flower Sample

The set dressing was also crucial in expressing the characters. The symmetrical world of the women was much more based in organic shapes that were seen in the lamps, chair, and ottoman. The mismatched asymmetrical world of the guys was much more based in comfort and practicality. Along with the DVDs and iPod player that filled their world were also hints of their nostalgic past such as a Battleship board game, a solved Rubik’s cube, and a mixed tape that’s somehow still floating around.

Checking In With the Famiglia of the Fellowship Play

On August 14th and 15th, WTF audiences will have the chance to witness a play as homegrown as they come: Samuel D. Hunter’s When You’re Here directed by Portia Krieger, this year’s Fellowship Play.

The Fellowship projects, like the musical After Robert Hutchens WTF audiences saw last month, are commissions written specifically for our Non-Equity ensemble of 10 early-career actors. During the intensive Fellowship development process, an entirely new piece of theatre goes from an idea to a full production in an astounding 5 weeks.

Flower Sample Members of the When You're Here cast during rehearsal.
At the beginning of the season, Portia and Sam came to Williamstown with only the notion that they wanted to collaborate on a play that explores the increasing anonymity and transience of America- all set within the walls of an Olive Garden franchise. During a weeklong workshop, Sam and Portia met with the company of Non-Equity actors and began to build the community the play depicts from the ground up. By the end of the week, Sam had churned out a draft of the first act. Sam then left the festival to expand the script to its first complete draft. Just days after After Robert Hutchens closed, Sam and Portia were back at WTF to have the cast read through the latest draft of the script, and since then writer, director and actors have been tirelessly working together to bring the world of When You’re Here to life.

With the cast and creative team gearing up for the first every production of this new work, we have asked one of the actors to answer an imaginary Olive Garden job application in character. Here’s a sneak peak at one of the ever-evolving figures that populate the world of Sam Hunter’s When You’re Here:

Flower Sample
Harry Ford during the culminating read-through after the initial workshop week.
Harry Ford plays Eddie, the manager of the Pocatello, Idaho Olive Garden where When You’re Here takes place.

Have you been convicted of a felony in the last ten years?
I don't even drink let alone felonize, though I'm not even sure what would count as a felony nowadays. I guess that's a good thing.

What is your favorite Olive Garden dish?
The breadsticks. Hands down.

What previous experience do you have that makes you qualified for this position?
It's in my blood. That's good enough, right? I can handle anything that comes my way with a smile, a firm handshake, and a complimentary dessert of your choice.

What’s your favorite memory of interacting with a customer?
It would have to be a 5 year old's birthday party when I first started working here. Her name was Jackie, and she had probably 10 little friends with her. When it came time to leave, Jackie started crying because she didn't want to leave because she had "made a new friend." Me. She cried all the way out the door. When I got to work the next morning, I found Jackie and her mom waiting in the hostess area. "She wanted to have lunch with her new friend," her mom said. Totally worth coming into work that morning.
Flower Sample
Playwright Samuel D. Hunter and Director Portia Krieger look on as their company reads aloud an early draft.

Come out to see When You’re Here, the exciting new work by Samuel D. Hunter directed by Portia Krieger. It runs August 14 and 15 at 7 pm and 11 pm in the Directing Studio. Tickets are free, and the box office will begin taking reservations for the general public on August 11!

Pour Me a Glass of Cabaret

Of the many amazing events constantly going up here at WTF, the Cabaret series is certainly one of the most memorable. The Cabaret began at the end of the 1972 Williamstown season as Nikos Psacharopoulos’s last-minute answer to replace a cancelled season-concluding musical, and it has been a staple of the Williamstown season ever since. From the ever-impressive Apprentice Chorus to solos showcasing the Non-Equity company’s pipes to guest appearances from the Equity Company, each one offers its own surprises. This week, we raided the WTF archives to bring you some gems from Cabarets of old. Eric Shethar, one of our Literary Interns, also sat down with Kris Kukul, the Festival’s Cabaret Director, and Kevin Hourigan, the Cabaret Intern, to talk about how those enchanted Cabaret evenings come together…

Flower Sample

Eric Shethar: Kris, how long have you been working on WTF’s Cabaret?
Kris Kukul: 7 years. My first year here I was hired as the musical director of the fellowship musical, but ended up being a last-minute replacement for the Cabaret Director. I’ve been back ever summer since.
ES: And Kevin, as the Cabaret intern what is your role in the process?
Kevin Hourigan: As Kris’s intern, I schedule rehearsals, assist Kris during them. I also do transcriptions and help with arrangements.
ES: Do you guys have any idea the kinds of instruments and voices you have before you get here?
KH: No. Not at all.
ES: So you literally get here and in the first week figure out what you have to work with?
KH: For the first Cabaret, sometimes things were really changing until the day of. As far the apprentices go, we always use an apprentice chorus, but we don’t know what they’re going to be until we see them.
Flower Sample
Myra Taylor, Dwight Schultz, James Naughton, Christopher Reeve, and Stephen Collins in a rousing ensemble number. (1984, Photo Credit Nina Krieger)
KK: I can usually come up with some apprentice numbers before we arrive, but that’s about it.
KH: But we cast musicians from the same Apprentice and Non-Equity pool, so we can’t even work on orchestrations until we get here. And then as far as the solos go, that’s completely dependent on which actors are moving through the Mainstage and Nikos shows at the time. So, we have to wait for them to get here so we can find out what they have up their sleeve or what they’re interested in performing.
ES: And is that the biggest challenge of putting together the Cabaret? Is it that it’s always in flux?
KH: It’s hard because it’s really a week rehearsal process. And it’s funny because for the second and third Cabaret the most work happens in the first half of the week because we have to do all of the orchestrations, make all of the music, and then teach it to everyone so quickly.
KK: That, and coming up with a good opening number.

ES: And so with the Equity Company, you said that you have to wait until they get here to see what they’re interested in. Do you ask them what they’d like to sing, or do you give them options?
KH: Some of them, like the performers who do more musical theater, actually come with a book of music. But for other people, singing is not necessarily their forte, but it’s something that they want to do, and they know it will be fun.
KK: When Maura Tierney (THREE HOTELS) and Jessica Hecht (A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE) approached me about doing a duet, I came up with a shortlist of about five songs for them.
ES: Kris, what is one of your favorite Cabaret memories of years past?
KK: Do I only get one?
ES: For you, I’ll give you three.
Flower Sample
A young Christian Slater and Gwyneth Paltrow share a duet years before they became household names.
KK: Greg Hildreth (WTF and Broadway’s BLOODY BLOODY ANDREW JACKSON, Fridays@3’s HOUSE ON STILTS) singing “Broadway Baby” from Follies in a diaper.
ES: Was that your idea or his idea?
KK: His idea.
ES: Any other gems?
KK: Catherine Brunell (WTF’s ANYTHING GOES), who was in the 2002 Broadway production of THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE singing “Gimme Gimme” from the show, and Brooks Ashmanskas (currently in SHE STOOPS TO CONQUER) berating the sound girl who was moving the microphone while he was emceeing and then kissing her.
ES: As a peace offering?
KK: It was a very complicated relationship.

ES: If you had to sing a song, Kevin, what would be your big Cabaret debut?
Flower Sample
Rosemary Harris, Maria Tucci (who wrote and starred in IT'S ONLY A READING as part of this year’s Fridays@3), and Joanne Woodward in one of the annual WTF galas held in New York City.
(1985 credit Bob Marshak)
KH: My big Cabaret debut number would be…this is hard. I don’t know!
ES: You have no idea?
KH: I don’t know. You’ll have to wait for my debut to see!
ES: Kris, your song choice?
KK: Two words: Dolly Parton.
ES: Ok, but what song?
KK: Any of them. Probably her version of “Stairway To Heaven.”
ES: If you could dream-cast and bring anyone to sing any song in the Cabaret, who and what would it be?
KK: Dolly Parton. Singing “Stairway To Heaven.”

And there it is. However generous Kris and Kevin were with their time, neither would give any hints as to this week’s setlist, so you’ll just have to wait until this Thursday through Saturday at 10:30 for the final Cabaret of the 2011 WTF season!

On Friday August 5th at 1 PM and 4:30 PM, WTF will present SITSTANDWALKLIEDOWN, directed by Phil Soltanoff and conducted by Gabriel Marantz, both friends of the Festival.
