Yesterday we had the wonderful opportunity to welcome Charles Randolph-Wright, Tracy Chapman, and the cast and artistic staff of Blood Knot to A.C.T.
At our meet and greet, Carey Perloff gave Charles a very warm welcome back (he previously directed Insurrection: Holding History, Tartuffe, and Blithe Spirit at A.C.T.) and he proceeded to share many of his thoughts about directing this challenging play. He also introduced the lovely Tracy Chapman, multi-talented songwriter and performer, who will be composing original music for this production of Blood Knot. In addition, we got to see a special sneak peak of the costume sketches and set design concepts.
Core company actors Steven Anthony Jones and Jack Willis are now in rehearsal and preparing for Blood Knot to open on February 8, but they will continue to share their thoughts here about the show and their trip to South Africa last year.
