A MIRRORED MONET had its first public reading at the new Dramatists’ Guild Foundation’s Music Hall on April 9-10.
Stuart Ross directed the 29 hour reading with a group of marvelous actors led by Mark Jacoby (Monet at 76), Matt Hydzik (Young Monet), Allie Trimm (Camille), George Dvorsky (Marquis) Jeanne Lehman (Aunt Elise and Narrator), Tom Rhoads (Bazille and Paul Durand-Ruel), Donnie Kehr (Manet), Akron Watson (Renoir), Cecilia Tripped (Blanche and Suzanne), Pomme Koch (Leroy).
Music direction was by Joe Mohan assisted expertly by Matt Liu.
Our host, the Dramatists’ Guild Foundation was represented by Caroline Aquino who supported our efforts beautifully.
Norman Meranus was our Project Supervisor and made everything flow smoothly.
A few actors came from the casting firm, EB Casting.
My heartfelt thanks to all for your tremendous talent and performance of this new musical!
