Next weekend we’ll be taking the production to the home of Village 14 regular Steve Siegel and Theresa St.John. We know from performing there with previous shows that these living room performances are always something special, and are always the most intimate of the run. Tickets ($20) are still available for both Friday and Saturday’s show at the Siegel-St. John home. Seating is limited so get them while you can at NewtonNomadicTheater.org
Regulars of the Newton Nomadic theater will have seen Billy Meleady before in our productions of Turn of the Screw and Faith Healer. In this he plays the role of Frank Sweeney. He is joined for this show by Nomadic newcomers Noni Lewis and Stephen Cooper.
Noni is a very accomplished actor visiting from Wales and her performance in the title role of Molly Sweeney is truly luminescent. Noni has a long resume but her most notable role may have been as the voice of one of the animated characters in Wallace and Gromit:Curse of the Were-Rabbit.
Stephen Cooper seems to have been born to play the role of Doctor Rice, which is curious. This is the second time he has been in a production of Molly Sweeney. The last time he played the completely opposite role of Frank Sweeney.
These three together are a stunning cast to have assembled for our little theater. They are the equal of anything you’ll see in Boston area theater. So don’t miss them.
