Klie takes a class off campus twice a week at the Actors Workshop of Ithaca. The workshop is not affiliated with the college, but Klie said it’s something she really loves taking part in. Through the workshop, Klie has been involved in student films and is part of a YouTube series called “Avenue Avery.”
WITH ITS RAPID-FIRE DIALOGUE, explosive plot twists, and no-holds barred aggression, Orange Flower Water is the theatrical version of all-out warfare. By turns darkly comic and deeply tragic, the work and its stunning rendition will be the first show of the Actor’s Workshop’s six-show season and is kicking off Friday at Risley Hall. Orange Flower Water is the perfect reminder that no entertainment can be as entrancing and engrossing as a small black box stage.
"Orange Flower Water" is the first show of the Actor's Workshop's six-show season, kicking off what VanCort hopes will become an annual theater tradition in Ithaca. Last year, the group's first full show was "Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead," which was well-received. . .
The Actor's Workshop of Ithaca, which for several years has focused on teaching its students the famed Meisner Technique of "living truthfully under imaginary circumstance," is branching out. With the regional premiere of "Orange Flower Water" over the next two weekends at Risley Theatre, the Actor's Workshop is launching a full-fledged theater company that will present a full season of shows.
John Murray, another one of the Actor's Workshop students, came into acting after 23 years in the Army as a helicopter pilot. He currently tests helicopter simulations for Rockwell Collins. "This is definitely outside my box," says Murray.
