Theatre--Performance (Cast Interviews)

This is another in a continuing series of interviews with the cast of THE COMPLETE WOMEN OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE, opening Friday, June 8th at 8 pm.


FIVE QUESTIONS WITH: JAN ERIN CORZO

1. Who do you play in The Complete Women of William Shakespeare?
          Portia from The Merchant of Venice.

2. What is your role in When Shakespeare’s Ladies Meet?
          Portia is the voice of reason amongst several chattering, gossiping women! She tries her best to get past emotions and bring order to a chaotic situation… but does she succeed??? (You be the judge of
that!)

3. Favourite Scene to play? Favourite Line?
          The courtroom banter between Portia and Juliet.  Just one? Favorite clever/funny line: “Some strange female approaches.” Favorite meaningful/rich line: “But jealous souls will not be answered so. They are not ever jealous for the cause, but jealous for they are jealous. ‘Tis a monster, begot upon itself, born on itself.”

4. Through your character's eyes, what is When Shakespeare’s Ladies Meet about?
          It is a plea for a circle of ladies to convince a na├»ve, love-struck child to her senses… And if there is
anyone that can do it it’s me!

5. What do you hope audiences take away from these two shows?
          Wet Kleenexes, a lingering smile as well as a genuine reflection on their own relationships with their
loved ones.
