This is Snout the Tinkerer. He is kind and well, kind. I wasn’t sure if he was sad because of the interview or just sad.

Eric: What is your name?

Snout: …….Snout…the tinkerer.

Eric: What do you like most about yourself?

Snout: ………I like to make stuff out of wood. I’m kind of quiet. People say that I’m a downer, but I think I’m just more practical. I like to also think of myself as a good actor, because I have a bold stage persona. I guess that’s it, I’m not really good at interviews.

Eric: What should the audience be most excited about for the show?

Snout: Seeing the other actors in the show. I didn’t even really want to be in it, but the others insisted, so here I am.

This is Starveling. He is a bit obsessed with his appearance, but can you blame the guy, he is suave.

Eric: What is your name?

Starveling: Starveling THE Tailor.

Eric: What do you like most about yourself?

Starveling: Well my taste is impeccable. I always have the best ideas, even if no one listens to them. In the end, I’m ALWAYS right.

Eric: What should the audience be most excited about for the show?

Starveling: The audience would be excited to see my costume choices. I especially love the work I did on Flute’s wig. Also, my performance as Moonshine is sublime.

This is Nick Bottom. He is…well, I’ll let his interview speak for itself.

Eric: What is your name?

Nick Bottom: Nick Bottom. Weaver by day, actor extraordinaire at every other hour.

Eric: What do you like most about yourself?

Nick Bottom: My good looks and rich, resonant voice.

Eric: What should the audience be most excited about for the show?

Nick Bottom: My tragic and wondrous death as Pyramus. It will ask for tears in the true performing of it. Look to your eyes. I will move storms.

All right folks. We are closing the show this week! Keep an eye out for next week’s post, where we will show you how it went. See you soon!

A 1930s Dramaturgy "Soiree"

May 29, 2024 10:15 PM
The world of Noel Coward’s Blithe Spirit is a rather far cry from the world that we are familiar with today. As such, a dedicated portion of our dramaturgical work for this production focused on helping the creative team become more comfortable and familiar with this brief look into the 1930s.

A Swing for the Supernatural

If you will see, or have seen, the BYU Theatre production of Blithe Spirit this June, you may notice that there are two names in the cast list who are not given a character role, but simply the role of “Swing.” Just what is a swing, and why are they important for a production? As dramaturg, I interviewed our two swing actors to get their perspectives - and definitions - of this important role.
