Cast Interview: Alan Altschuler in A LIE OF THE MIND

Your Name:
Alan Altschuler

Role in this production:

What's been your favorite role, to date?  

What's the wackiest experience you've ever had onstage?  
Having a fellow actor in TWELVE ANGRY MEN shift his accent mid-performance from Eastern European to Italian and finishing every sentence with the words, "Mamma Mia!"

What's been the most challenging thing about preparing for this role? 
Making sure that Baylor has various levels and does not come off as two-dimensional bully.

What's been the most exciting thing about the rehearsal process? 
Working to develop my relationship relative to each of my scene partners: Meg, Mike, Beth and Frankie.

What parts of yourself are similar to the character?  
The similarities between Baylor and myself stem from my personal experience with certain men of Baylor's generation, who tended to be bullies who actually lacked self-confidence and/or self awareness.

What's next for you (with The Seeing Place, or other)?   
This June, I'll be playing Polonius in both HAMLET and ROSENCRANTZ AND GUILDENSTERN ARE DEAD with The Seeing Place.

A LIE OF THE MIND runs March 1-17, 2013
Wed-Sat at 7pm;  Sat & Sun at 2pm, in New York City.
