In just over a week, TIC's 32nd production, Women Playing Hamlet, opens for a whirlwind run from June 22-26, 2016 at Theatre 54 @ Shetler Studios, 244 West 54th Street, 12th Floor.

We interviewed one of the show's actors, Ms. Lori Funk, who plays several roles in the piece, from a Freudian psychiatrist to a ghost to a Home Shopping Network Host to a few others.
What's your favorite line in the show?
When Gwen says, "My acting teacher, the great Stella Adler, said, 'Life crushes your soul--theatre reminds you, you have one!'"
Every time I hear those words in rehearsal, I think to myself, AMEN. Life can and does crush your soul at times (it crushed mine on the A train this morning). But, if you have art in your life (theatre, music, dance, drawing, painting, etc. etc. etc.), then you are ultimately un-crushable.
Favorite Shakespearean quotation?
"To thine own self be true." (Hamlet)
They say "Dying is easy. Comedy is hard." Do you agree?
Thanks for reading and we hope to see you next week at Women Playing Hamlet!
