I Am My Own Wife Goes to ArtsWest

posted by on March 19 at 16:51 PM

For those who’ve been following this wee drama: There was a clerical error at Dramatists Play Service which indicated that both the Rep and ArtsWest had the rights to the solo show about Charlotte von Mahlsdorf, the famous East German transvestite and founder of the Gründerzeit Museum (the “museum of ordinary objects”)

The Rep conceded, meaning the rumored Rep production team (Jen Zeyl, Allison Narver, Nick Garrison) won’t be doing the show.

The ArtsWest production, directed by Christopher Zinovitch and starring Nick DeSantis, will open in May.

That is some good news for ArtsWest! Thanks Brendan for shining some light on this story. I hope anyone who read this story and is interested in the play will check out the ArtsWest production, Nick DeSantis is a wonderfully talented actor.

On the one hand - yay for the little guys!

On the other hand, Nick Garrison would have been brilliant in the role. Hopefully, he'll get another shot at it one of these days.

Too bad, I was hoping it would play at a professional theater with actors and a director who are talented. Instead it's going to Arts West.

Now, now hgfdark, ArtsWest may not be the "big time", but they've had their fair share of decent shows, and goodness knows, even our beloved flagship theatre has had their share of clunkers, so really it all kind of evens out in the end.

At least in an ArtsWest production, Mr. DeSantis won't be competing against a $100,000 set...
