Director: Eve Muson
Character role: Feste
One of my last shows at college and one of the most rewarding pieces of work! I went home from every show feeling empty yet full. Empty because of the extreme energy I gave to the role but feeling full because I know that gave it everything I got. Playing Feste felt like a love letter to UMBC, my Guru Eve Muson, and Past/Future versions of Shubhangi.
Who said this traditionally OLD/WHITE/MALE character can't be played by a scrappy YOUNG/BROWN/FEMALE actor!! (Not me!! and Hopefully not you!!)
Here is to being bold and creating choices that represents the diverse world we live in.
