The Motherf**ker with the Hat premiered on Broadway on April 11, 2011. However, prior to finding it’s home at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre on west 45th street, Motherf**ker went through several stages of development, as plays often do. We recently sat down with actress Raquel Almazan, who worked on the very first reading of the play with the LAByrinth Theatre downtown, to learn about her experience. Stephen Adly Guirgis, former Artistic Director and long time member of the LAByrinth, directed her in this industry reading. Almazan is an actress and playwright, who has been rehearsing the last few weeks at T. Schreiber for her upcoming solo show (details below!). She graciously took some time to share with us her thoughts about those early days at the LAByrinth and her experience being there from the beginning.
You can see Raquel in her solo show “Porning the Planet: The Desensitization of a Nation” THIS Friday, October 14th at Dixon Place!
