Re: “Theater review: "Other Desert Cities" at the JCC

I would just like to say that as an actor, we are always subject to criticism and I understand that you can say what you will about my performance. Let it however be known that when I auditioned for this show, back in December I was fully prepared to take on this monumental role, having been the survivor of a parent who committed suicide when I was only 21 years old. That being said, I was fully prepared to take on the role of Brooke Wyeth whom struggles throughout the story with the apparent suicide of her brother and best friend, as well as her own tendencies. What I was not prepared for, was that my 16 year old nephew would commit suicide three weeks before commencing rehearsals for this production. Mounting this character has been a very painful and excruciating experience, at best. Should I have maybe bowed out considering my own personal painful struggle unfolding simultaneously? Maybe so, but since I keep me word and commitment to projects, I powered through. Regardless of your critique, I have a sense of real accomplishment through this character and also feel I better than anyone can understand this character and bring her to life. Since you did not like the fact that I don't mug the audience with schtick and overdone facial expressions, well then that is your taste and it's not my style. But let's consider that as an actor I probably don't deserve this level of barrage-ment, considering what I am going through in my real life. But then again, why would you care? I mean, you are a critic after all. Sincerely, Marlo DiCrasto
