I’m understudying beloved TV icon Will Clinger in the Chicago premiere of Richard Gustin’s Being Seen, coming to the Den Theatre for a limited engagement!
Voted “Fan Favorite” at the New York International Fringe Festival (one of 12 out of 180+ productions so honored), Being Seen is a captivating, fast-paced comedy about life in the Arts.
An actor answers the audition notice of a highly acclaimed director and finds herself navigating his outlandish creative process. This tour de force comedy asks the question: “What would you do for a dream?”
“The most nonstop laughs at FringeNYC were provided by a show about theatre… simultaneously comedic and thought-provoking,” said HYReviews.com, and Theatre in The Now wrote, “the script Gustin has written is wickedly smart. The dialogue is snappy, the conversations are genius. . . There was never a dull moment and every beat has a purpose. The storytelling is sharp and precise.”
All this and Jeff Award winner Kelly Anne Clark (understudied by Gabrielle Johnsen) means I am damn excited to be ready to leap into the fray as the demanding and eccentric genius director should the need arise.
