The Queen of Fenway Court: Isabella Stewart Gardner
Written and Performed by Leigh Strimbeck
Directed by Josh Briggs | Original music by Jan Jurchak
“Strimbeck is on camera in this “Theatre on Film” production during the entire 56 minutes, and neither the camera nor the audience can get enough of her…Strimbeck channels Isabella and all her inconsistencies, quirkiness and charm. She wears both halo and crown and, in the blink of an eye, shifts from steely and unwavering to coquettish and fun-loving and back again to shrewd and fearless…all this makes for great storytelling and enchanting theater.”
LIVING OUT LOUD: Gloucester Stage Unmasks Isabella Stewart Gardner in a Tour-de-Force Production written by Shelley A. Sackett
This year has been a year of transition. I decided to go back to my first love, acting. I no longer teach at Russell Sage College. I am freelancing with an agent in the city, and I’ve done a number of auditions for film and television. As of March 2019, I booked an independent film and two plays (see upcoming events).
I worked with Berkshire Playwrights Lab in Great Barrington, MA this winter, directing a piece by Marty Bongfeldt called Always for their Radius Festival. The BPL Radius Festival is a wonderful event, new work, big talent, always a positive and supportive atmosphere. I also did a reading of a new play by Jim Frangione.
It’s terrific and terrifying to be popping in and out of audition rooms again.
