Production Description

Casting principal and supporting roles for "When She Danced," by Pulitzer and Tony nominee Martin Sherman ("Bent," "The Boy from Oz"). Project Description: "A play about a critical moment, both personal and political, in the life of dancer Isadora Duncan. Set in Paris, 1923 at her home, the "Mother of Modern Dance" is in decline, a middle-aged American expatriate scrounging for financial support to start a dance school in Italy. She hosts a dinner for a man she believes to be an Italian diplomat who can help finance her dream. Also in attendance are the maid who speaks only French, a 19-year-old Greek piano prodigy, a prim Russian emigree who has signed on as Duncan's translator, an American friend, and a Swedish teenager. The dinner party proves to be a true Tower of Babel as well as an evening of revelations, both funny and poignant."
