Ready, Set ... Improv! Or: Getting the DTC's New Acting Company to Act Up.
How do you freak out a serious stage actor? Ask him or her to do some improv. On video.
That's what we did with members of the new Dallas Theater Center resident acting company. After we conducted the serious interviews about being ack-tohrs in big-time regional theater, we made them act on command. Such whining. "They made us feel like dancing monkeys!" the thesps complained later to DTC artistic director Kevin Moriarty (or so we heard).
Look, even James Lipton gets his subjects to tap-dance on Inside the Actors Studio. So what's wrong with goofing around a little? Seven of the nine actors gave it a go.
Do jump along. --Elaine Liner
