SHORT TAKES with CHARLOTTE PARRY of EQUIVOCATION

Charlotte Perry is a part of the ensemble cast of Bill Cain’s newest play, EQUIVOCATION, at Manhattan Theatre Club. Today is opening night and we had the opportunity to get to know Charlotte with a few of her recent interests. See what she had to say.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1.What Broadway or Off-Broadway show, book and movie are you recommending to friends these days?BROADWAY SHOW: this is off-Broadway, but I am telling my friends about Bridge Project at BAM. Having been a part of last year’s cast – I hope everyone goes to see Sam Mendes’ productions this year – As You Like It and the Tempest. They are sure to be excellent.

If it has to be a Broadway choice, I suppose I would say Billy Elliot – those boys are amazing.

MOVIE: I haven’t had time to go to the movies for a while, but loved Julie and Julia the last time I went – I returned home immediately and made Boeuf Bourguignon. Somewhat unsuccessfully I should add.

BOOK: Let The Great World Spin by Colum McCann. He is a friend of mine whose talents I admire hugely. He just won the National Book Award for this novel – richly deserved.

2. What country (other than the US) would you most like to visit? 

I would love to visit Morocco. Clearly I need to get a movie job soon as everyone seems to shoot their films there!

 

3. What musical theatre character would you most like to be stranded with on a desert island? Why? 

I want to spend my time on my desert island singing Moses Suposes His Toeses are Roses – so…the cast of Singing In The Rain, please!

 

 

4. What’s your favorite NYC “hotspot”? (restaurant, bar, museum, neighborhood) 

My current favorite New York ‘treat’ is a massage at Tui Na on Mott and Spring followed by tea in the Crosby Street Hotel. You get lots of free snacks and can sit there for ages…

5. What’s your favorite play by William Shakespeare? 

It changes all the time depending on where I am in my life. At the moment, I love the late plays – Cymbeline and The Winter’s Tale especially. Possibly as I’ve performed in both of them, which always increases my love and understanding of a play.

 

Bill Cain’s new play set in 1605 England begins when King James’ right hand man (David Pittu) commissions William Shakespeare (John Pankow) to write a new play about the Gunpowder Plot, a recent failed attempt to blow up Parliament and the Monarchy. EQUIVOCATION is a bold new look at the greatest playwright ever in a drama whose contemporary parallels are unmistakable and whose laughter is abundant – a work of startling revelations and vibrant theatricality.

The limited engagement of EQUIVOCATION will open Tuesday, March 2 at MTC at New York City Center – Stage I (131 West 55th Street).
