Name: Alyson Leigh Rosenfeld
What is your current project?
Marry Me A Little (in rep with You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown)
Where are you performing it and why is it the right fit for your piece?
We are performing at The Gallery Players. The space has the kind of intimacy that the piece requires. It is just two actors and a piano on stage for 70 minutes. That’s it! It wouldn’t work as well in a larger house. In this theatre, we can create the kind of safe space that is necessary for the actors and the audience to really dive in emotionally.
What’s next for you?
I am also a voice actor and my newest cartoon called “Nella the Princess Knight” premieres on Nick Jr. on February 6th. You can also hear me on your TV every Saturday morning on Pokémon, Yu-Gi-Oh!, and Regal Academy.
Who is your biggest inspiration right at this moment and why?
I would have to say my collaborators on this piece are my biggest inspiration right now. Building these characters has truly been a team effort among the three rotating casts, and it has been an incredible experience to see how the exact same given circumstances and blocking can create wildly different characters and moments on stage. Everyone has shown up with extreme generosity, lack of ego, and a readiness to play, and I feel so grateful to be in the room where it’s happening.
