Kicking off 2017 With Some Fine Southern Flair

Hey Y’all!

We are just wrapping up the first month of 2017, and I’m excited for what this year will bring. It’s already been a productive month of preparations for the upcoming audition season with only a few broken New Year resolutions. (I’m still going to the gym, if only occasionally.)

However, the highlight of my month was to join my favorite group of actors for Tennessee Shakespeare Company’s Literary Salon, Eudora Welty: Mississippi Myth. 

Property of Tennessee Shakespeare Company. 2017

Eudora Welty: Mississippi Myth/PC: Jillian Barron, TSC 2017.

I had the honor to perform beside the marvelously talented TSC actors Dan McCleary, Stephanie Shine, Marquis Archuleta, and Jillian Barron for this fun-filled night that included Welty inspired cocktails (Haymaker punch, anyone?) and readings from her works. Stephanie Shine curated the event and included selections of Welty’s short stories such as the well-known “Why I Live At the P.O.” and the heart-breaking “The Whistle.”

It was a magical night dedicated to Southern culture and art.  I always give thanks to the generous sponsorship and support that helps organizations like TSC thrive to enrich the community and give actors like me a marvelous place to play and create.

The Eudora Welty: Mississippi Myth Literary Salon was quite a party that we won’t soon forget. Fortunately for you guys that missed this swinging shindig, TSC has yet another Southern Literary Salon in April! Visit www.TNShakespeare.org to buy tickets for the Flannery O’Connor: Georgia Gothic Salon on April 21, 2017.

Until Next Time,

Merit
