As soon as you see an engaging and striking woman on stage with powerful muscle lines on her forearms juggling you know Sara Felder is at it again. At an intimate performance pre-opening night I was treated to a preview of the now tweaked June Bride.
Felder has performed this show before but not like this. Her tweaked show starts tonight February 7, 2008 at the Painted Bride Theatre. Shows are through the 9th at 8pm and starting again on February 15-16th. This was my second time seeing Felder on stage in her element. Even in rehearsal her demeanor is that of a show person. All smiles and still able to get down to business merely watching her go over a scene again and again is completely entertaining.
Her skills at juggling match those of her wit. She has written the show she’s performing and you can tell by the way she delivers each line with purpose.
The show tonight has an added special treat with a post show discussion featuring Rabbi Linda Holtzman of Mishkan Shalom Synagogue. The discussion is about the same sex marriage battle especially within the Jewish faith.
If you’re lucky enough to see the Saturday show you can even attend a juggling workshop with Felder. I however would leave the dazzling tricks of the trade to the master. Get to this show. It’s intriguing alone with the on stage antics and interesting because of the subject matter and interesting musings by the fabulous Sara Felder.
