Just wanted to post this photo from a scene I worked on from A Midsummer Night's Dream at Antaeus Theater under the tutelage of Armin Shimerman, the moderator of my 'Shakespeare' class. This scene is from Act 3, Scene 2 with Simone McAlonen as Helena and I as Hermia. It was intensely physical, with two men holding me back as I tried desperately to attack her after exchanging some very strong words. We had a wonderful time, and it was a great way to end an even greater class. Thanks to Cameron Daxon and Spencer Rowe for helping to round out the cast as Demetrius and Lysander.
