I went to the play “This Girl Laughs, This Girl Cries, This Girl does Nothing.” In my opinion, it was amazing, funny and interesting. The play was about triplets; Albienne, Beatrix, and Carmen, who all take different paths in life after their father leaves them in the woods at 10 years old.
The play takes us through the journey of the girls lives over the next 21 years, through all the ups and downs.
After the play I talked to Gabriella Brequet, who played Beatrix and was also the costume designer. She was the girl who cried. She has done over 40 plays. I asked if she gets nervous in front of the crowds and she said, “Yes, but (I’m) inspired by people to keep going.”
I talked to Leora Sapon-Shevin, who is very good at transforming into different characters and expressing emotion for each character. She’s been performing on and off her whole life. But this is her professional debut. She says she gets very nervous performing. Her favorite thing about performing is “listening to the audience when they’re with us on stage.”
I really enjoyed my experience at The Scoundrel & Scamp Theatre and look forward to seeing more performances. Wolfe Bowart’s “Cloud Soup” shows there Jan. 10–13. Visit scoundrelandscamp.org for information.
