Welcome to the Moon
ACTT First Year Actors (Group C) present: WELCOME TO THE MOON
Directed by Naomi Livingstone
A note from the Director:
I first encountered the writing of John Patrick Shanley as a child via his whimsical, exuberant romantic comedy film Moonstruck. Something of its gutsiness, its bittersweet yearning and unashamed tribute to the madness of love just captured me. As an adult acting student, I stumbled upon his play Danny and the Deep Blue Sea and the deal was sealed: I was in love with John Patrick Shanley’s writing. Specifically, his ‘early’ stuff. His most recent film (first a play), the Oscar-nominated Doubt is a revelation and he continues to inspire. But it’s this love stuff -the big poetic images, the struggle to own identity, to chase
dreams and...love - wrapped in a tough Bronx world that really gets me going.
So, it was my great pleasure to get to share his work and explore Welcome to the Moon and other plays (yes, from the ‘early’ period) with the wonderfully talented and dedicated cast of First Year group C.
