Check Out Balm’s Raves

Balm in Gilead has received a couple RAVE reviews…here’s a little taste of the action:

n

“In an almost unfairly short two hours, we are suddenly absorbed into the life of a dingy all-night diner in 1965, trafficked by the thirty vulnerable “lost souls” of local renegades, prostitutes (both male and female), drug dealers, hustlers, and junkies.”n- Dena Kopolovich

n

n

“…we are given an entire cast of strong and very distinct characters, all played with eloquence…” – Dena Kopolovich

n

n

“T. Schreiber Studio’s production of Lanford Wilson’s Balm in Gilead is superlative in every way. There’s not a richer or more rewarding work of theatre anywhere in town right now…” – Martin Denton

n

n

“Major kudos to Terry Schreiber and his staff for keeping the lights burning not just on the obvious classics by Shakespeare and Chekhov but the contemporary ones that we just don’t see enough of.” – Martin Denton

n

n

“The company he’s [Director, Peter Jensen] assembled is without peer on any stage in NYC right now; these 29 actors inhabit their roles viscerally.” – Martin Denton

Definitions of “ensemble”(pronounced ahn-sahm-buhl.):

n

a group of supporting entertainers, as actors, dancers, and singers, in a theatrical production

n

-all the parts of a thing taken together, so that each part is considered only in relation to the whole

n

n

n

the entire costume of an individual, esp. when all the parts are in harmony

n

I’m proud to currently be a part of a true “ensemble”with the cast of T. Schreiber Studio’s Balm in Gilead. With 29 people in the cast, you would think egos would flow rampant, conflicts would arise, you know, the usual things that happen when a big group of actors get together. But I have to say, I love each and every one of my fellow cast members. We are a true ensemble cast on and off the stage.

n

n

The Balm in Gilead script is a plethora of interlocking/overlapping lines, or as our director points out during certain scenes, “It’s not interlocking, it’s not overlapping… it’s a combination of both.” The majority of the play consists of simultaneous scenes where actors are taking their cues not off of who they are talking to, but off of a conversation across the stage. It takes trust in your fellow actors, trust in the script and director – it takes an ensemble: all parts being in harmony; each part being considered only in relation to the whole.

n

Our cast has truly found harmony. We trust together, listen together, love together, and most importantly, we bow together.
