L.A.'s First Immersive Theater Conference | LA Weekly

snmsketches:

"That may be about to happen. The big buzz of the gathering was news that Hollywood producers Parkes/MacDonald Productions and global event producer Control Room had secured the old Red Car station under downtown’s Metro 417 apartments for the creation of a multi-million dollar theater experience by Felix Barrett of the British theater company Punchdrunk, the company responsible for New York’s runaway immersive/site-specific/interactive show Sleep No More."

THIS.

McKittrick Keyhole View

Why can’t there be a hidden webcam somewhere in the McKittrick? I don’t even care which room. Just somewhere affording a small live glimpse of what the hell is going on today. Even just the piano on the balcony. Or the Manderley Bar. Audio optional. Just something… anything…

Emily Terndrup & Derrick Belcham Present ‘Debut’

scorchedthesnake:

Emily Terndrup, who among many other brilliant moments in her various roles at the McKittrick is the one who blew your mind at the Carnavale with that amazing solo, is crowd funding what appears to be a really awesome project called “Debut.” 

We have a fantastic tradition in the SNM fan community of supporting precisely this kind of project. Click here to find out more and donate.

Yep, and done.

Someone in the street came up and said, ‘You got this great death scene.’ And I said, ‘Have I? What was the manner of my death?’ And then he told me, and I said, ‘Oh, right!’ So then I went into a bookshop and a grabbed a book and I said, ‘Oh, I see.’ It’s quite spectacular. [Charles was one of several actors on the show who didn’t read George R.R. Martin’s novels.] I’m not one of these actors that tries to find the good in a character. If a character is a sh–, he’s a sh–, and you play him full on as a sh– – don’t try and make him nice, you play him full on. I just hope I get a state funeral afterwards as well. They should start season 5 with a great f–k-off funeral for Tywin.

'I fight The Hound!' We filmed it—three days in Iceland and it’s the biggest hardest fight I’ve ever done. It was on the rocks with swords and fists and we both came out unscathed, but it was one of the f–king hardest things I’ve ever done in my life. My hands were like tramps feet — like swollen. They looked after me, they always do, but inevitably things happen. We were fighting up hills, down hills, rolling, fighting on rock face with a sheer down drop. [The Hound actor] Rory McCann is an amazing actor and a very strong man, and that was a challenge — not just as actors, but as characters. It’s a f–king really intense challenge. Like poor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau last season with the [sword fight] said, 'Can you take 10 percent off this please, rather than smashing at me?' Rory and I were quite serious about it. We want there to be contact —rolling around in the dirt on a rock face with your hand bleeding. You’re in pain, just emotional and screaming through it, and blood is pouring out of your mouth and you’re falling over when you’re meant to and falling when you’re not meant to. I like it to be real. So certain things that are done that are very real and you’re genuinely scared because you look into the other person’s eyes and they mean it. It’s frightening—that is one of the few times I’ve not had to do any acting. I was screaming, 'F–k you! Come on!' Blood everywhere, going insane. It is f–king mental.

My McKittrick May

I did a couple of shows in May for the first time in many months. In the past, I’ve considered who I would be if I was a resident. But I see more clearly now - I just want to wear the mask. I’m admittedly repressed — it’s like cosplay for me in the hotel. I still feel like I’m playing a role. Not in the annoying, getting in the middle of the scene way. More like the Fleetwood Mac kinda way. Emotional interplay.

May 27, 2014 - Pre-game Gallow Green - Part of the joint was closed off as they had the bee wrangler in there doing his thing amongst tons of yellowjackets. I wasn’t allowed to sit as I was only drinking. I spoke with a few of the staff, who were disappointingly meh. Maybe it was the bees. The elevator operator was pleasant enough.

The Show [some roles are guesses] - Erik Abbott-Main (Taxidermist); Tony Bordonaro (Speakeasy); Ernesto Breton;  Kristin Clotfelter (Agnes); Megh Dixon (Hecate); Emeri Fetzer (Sexy Witch); Anna Finkel (Lady Macbeth); Douglas Gillespie; Mallory Gracenin (Nurse); Tim Haber (Jasper); Virginia Logan (Matron); Jonothon Lyons (Jasper); Marissa Maislen; Zach Martens (MIB); Zach McNally (Fulton); Emily Oldak (Lady Macduff); Edward Stanley (Duncan); Benjamin Thys (Malcolm); Kenna Tuski (Bald Witch); Ryan Vancompernolle; Paul Zivkovich (Macbeth)

In line behind a group taking their grandparents to the show - all of their first times there. Desperately wanted to see them at the end but it didn’t happen. Got my ace and was last off the first elevator. 

Highlights

  • Megh Dixon was Hecate. She likes reflecting light with silverware. More importantly, I had my first “find my ring” with her - which ended with her tossing me out of her lair so madly that I flew into the next room knocking all kinds of shit over. I was still a week later. My Favorite Hecate moment ever. 
  • Kristin Clotfelter’s Agnes 1:1 - dig her.
  • I swear someone was being brought up the staircase for a 6th floor 1:1. I don’t believe the lift was out of service. Mysterious. Sadly, it wasn’t me. [Edit: this happens only during non-Health shows according to those that know.]

May 28, 2014 - Pre-Game Heath - Evenghostandhorse was right, ambiance here is much more show relevant than Gallow Brown these days. Got there at 6pm, seated immediately, served quickly, and headed out around 7:05-7:10 for the show. Food was great, pricey but not outrageous, and the talent in the room (Mr. L, pianist, etc.) was quite good. I will be going back for sure. If you want to have dinner at the Health and get an Ace — it can be done. However, you will miss the chance at a 1:1. But altogether, well done Heath.

The Show [some roles guessing] - Miguel Anaya (Speakeasy); Eric Jackson Bradley (Porter); Emeri Fetzer (Sexy Witch); Douglas Gillespie (Boy Witch); Mallory Gracenin (Matron); Tim Haber; Jon Lyons; Zach McNally; Sam Meredith; Andrea Murillo (Agnes); Joseph Poulson (Bargarran); Elizabeth Romanski (Hecate); Ed Stanley (Duncan); Brandin Steffensen (Macduff); Emily Terndrup (Nurse); Ben Thys; Kenna Tuski (Bald Witch); Ryan Vancompernolle (Bald Witch); Isadora Wolfe; Debra Zalkind (Danvers); Paul Zivkovich (Macbeth)

In both shows I encountered something I love - the situation: you walk into an ongoing scene, filled with guests, but a character pauses to watch you enter. At the ball, I entered from stage right during the second loop, and I swear Emeri’s Sexy Witch stopped dancing in her tracks and just glared at me. And that wicked smile. I got this in Megh’s evil rep bar too — Hecate’s constantly looking to entrance her followers. In the ballroom though, I was in a tractor beam.

During the rave, I found myself staring exclusively at Elizabeth’s Hecate. She noticed.

  • Hecate-Porter assignment - “Yes, mommy.”
  • Porter’s boat deal
  • Elizabeth’s Find My Ring
  • Emeri’s S. Witch - she does a good job of picking different kinds of folks amongst the throngs — I was lucky. She rules at this. She had me at “hell.”
  • Matron 1:1 - I think it was Mallory — I went up there in the third loop and there was nobody around the hut. But there was an eye peering back through the cracks. Dug that.

So that’s it. Met Frances at this show - was fun to talk to someone from the Tumblr-sphere. I’m still at the point where I could go every day for a week - just to wear that mask in that place.
