On Monday we had the first meeting of the brand-new Hypocrites ensemble. After a couple of tough months for the Hypocrites, the night felt like a new beginning with old friends. The 30 person ensemble is composed of actors who have been involved with the company from the start, all the way to brand new people that I look forward to working with for the first time. Also there were cute babies and snacks, two of the main reasons to gather.
It was awful to have to cancel a portion of our season and to let so many artists go, it felt like we might lose the Hypocrites. But this group is energized and ready to start developing plays together with Sean. I can’t wait to see what we come up with!
