The Incomparable Karen Wray

Here's to my Stage Manager: The lady who walked the fine line between believing in me, and bustin' my chops. She worked twice as hard as I did, and, while my work is done, her work continues. I couldn't have done it without her.

Thank You, K. Dubs. A superhero, if there ever was one.

A great actor is generous. They're in tune with themselves physically and emotionally. They come to terms with nerves, and work with it. They are present on stage, and they give themselves completely to the other actors, who are able to give back to them. There is give and take. The story is told, and there is total connection with the audience.
