Four years waiting in the wings, and Jessica finally gets to roll with ‘the’ role: dark and sinister LADY MACBETH. (Sept 9-20 at American Theatre of Actors, 314 W. 54th St.). Tickets here.
She re-unites with her colleague and friend Thomas Leverton (‘Macbeth’) – they first played opposite each other in a production of CYMBELINE (2009) and then in HAMLET (2011); have performed together in three other works, and she has directed him in three roles including ‘Romeo’ in which he met his real-life ‘Juliet.’
Jessica will continue nagging her way Off-Broadway as the resigned and cynical MRS. ZERO in Elmer Rice’s THE ADDING MACHINE (Dec 9-13 at The West End with Ripple Effect Artists, 263 W. 86th St.). See the FREE READING of this production – Sun August 30th, 7pm (601 W. 26th St. – Center for Social Innovation), email REAreservations@gmail.com.
