Shirley, VT Young Artists Blog: Marie Polizzano

Hi there! This is Marie writing again to update you on our status with Circle Mirror Transformation. We opened on Wednesday night, and from the moment I stepped into the theatre that day, there was an exciting buzz in the air. Because we made a lot of progress throughout our rehearsals and preview performances in the days preceding, I think we all felt ready and eager to finally open!

The audiences on opening nights at the Huntington have a reputation for being vibrant, joyful, and very generous, and I have to say that our opening house was no exception. They were generous with their laughter, and when they were not laughing we could feel them listening to our every word. It is amazing what an audience's energy can do to our performance, and all of their positive and attentive energy was certainly felt by us and thus impacted our performance in a great way. I had so much fun onstage that night. And I continue to! I feel so lucky to be a part of such an incredibly powerful, delicate, beautiful show with such rich characters and an amazing cast and crew. And I am so thrilled that I get to keep going to the theatre for the next 3 and a half weeks to tell this story to varying audiences.

Something that I love about this show is that there are many different audience reactions. I've had some people comment on how funny it is, but just last night as I was exiting the theatre, two women from the audience approached me and spoke of the tenderness and sadness that is also very present in the play. After the women stopped me to congratulate me on the performance, I thanked them and asked them what they thought. One woman said,“I loved the show and was very moved by it. But I don't understand why people are calling it a comedy. Everyone was laughing, but what struck me was the sadness in all the characters." I think this is fascinating and I think that both humor and sadness are very alive within this play. There is a lot of lightness, but each character is struggling with something and the play gives us a very real glimpse of their vulnerability as well.

I am eager to hear more audience responses, so come see it and let us know what you think!
