THREE ELIZABETHS – March 9th & 10th Ruby Theatre @ the Complex!

slider-3liz-1000x391-bHave you ever wondered what life was really like for the Elizabeth I of England? Her inner world, the men she loved, the struggles she faced to maintain her crown? This weekend, you can find out! Please join us for two exclusive performances of THREE ELIZABETHS, a new play by Tony nominated director/choreographer Tony Tanner.

This unique play shows Elizabeth the First in three different stages of her life, portrayed by three actresses on stage at the same time: Elizabeth the Younger, played by Lonni Silverman; Elizabeth the Queen, played by Susan Hanfield; and Elizabeth the Dowager, played by Jean Gilpin. Ghosts from their past re-emerge and interact with them throughout the production.

Our outstanding cast also includes Elyse Ashton as Mary, Queen of Scots; Damon Kirche as the men in Elizabeth’s life (Seymour, Leicester & Essex); Tad Atkinson as Dickon; Kaye Kittrel as Mary Tudor with Matt Hennerson and Joe Hulser alternating as Henry VIII.

Costume design by Cairin Jacobs.

Performances of THREE ELIZABETHS will be on March 9th and 10th will be at 2pm in the Ruby Theatre @ The Complex in Hollywood. If you would like to make a reservation, please email ThreeElizabethsReservationss@gmail.com.

New Play – THREE ELIZABETHS – on stage in early 2019!

So it begins. Great first rehearsal today of new play THREE ELIZABETHS written & directed by Tony nominated director and choreographer, Tony Tanner.

I couldn’t be more excited to be playing Queen Elizabeth I, alongside an incredible cast! The premise of this piece is so unique – Elizabeth the First, in three different stages of her life. Three different actresses on stage at the same time – Elizabeth the Younger, Elizabeth the Queen, Elizabeth the Dowager. Figures from their past re-emerge and interact with them.

We did a staged reading of this play a little while ago, receiving a wonderful response, that has now prompted a full production.

Stay tuned for performance details coming in early 2019!
