All Stages Online: Spring 2013 – Role of a Lifetime – Mommy

Andrea Newman – The American Dream by Edward Albee – 383 Directing Project, University of Alberta Drama Department, Edmonton, 2008

Playing Mommy was the role of a lifetime for me because it was the first role where I felt truly confident. Normally I would fret about forgetting my lines or my blocking, but I identified so much with the character of Mommy that it was easy to just “be”. Getting out of my head and learning to have fun with the character was the greatest, most freeing feeling in the world.
