With every new production I begin there is always some aspect of nervousness and excitement. With this particular production of ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST with the Alliance Theatre in Atlanta I feel very blessed to be part of such a terrific group of creative minds who are so open, generous and willing to play. For the past few days I have been getting to know this entirely new group of people who already have a strong working relationship with each other. I am sort of the new fish in the pond having travelled all the way from Canada to join to this amazing ensemble of actors. For the past few days the entire production team has been sharing all of their extraordinary gifts to help bring this classic story to life onstage. Everyone from wardrobe, to production and sound design, to fight choreography and direction have been sharing their vision and expertise in their chosen fields. I am so excited to be part of this journey in bringing the role of Chief Bromden to life for American audiences to experience. I am positive this journey is going to be an amazing learning experience and one that I will remember for a very long time. I am looking forward to the powerful and cathartic experience of performing in this production and hope you follow along this journey with me. Miigwetch!
