As we approach the opening of this production, let’s get to know a bit about the people bringing us this highly anticipated and highly twisted comedy. To start, here is Company Member Stephanie Gaslin who is playing Edith in Mr. Kolpert.
Song you rock out to for getting pumped up?
Queen – Don’t Stop Me Now
Song you put on when feeling a little blue?
The Beatles – Let It Be
Song guaranteed to get you on the dance floor?
Macklemore – Thrift Shop
Superpower you wish you had?
To stop time in order to get the mundane tasks done and then start it again so that I won’t miss any fun activities or events OR to be able to think myself anywhere in the world and be transported there instantly.
Talent that surprises folks?
I am a singer and unfortunately I tend to keep it to myself. Maybe I should share it sometime.
Funny Third Rail memory?
During dress rehearsal for The Lonesome West we had two pilates balls in the basement of The IFCC, (a blue one that about 9 months later I was sitting on when my water broke and an orange one that was donated to the company). I dared Tim True to hold the orange pilates ball in front of him and I would hold the blue pilates ball in front of me. We then would both run at each other as fast as we could. I made this dare not considering the size difference between us. As our pilates balls crashed into one another I was sent flying into the corner of a cement wall. I hurt my back and had the largest purple bruise for weeks.
Mr. Kolpert runs from February 5 – February 27
