The YouTube clip here will show you the first 20 minutes of The Maccabee Queen.
We are deep in rehearsals; they are going well. It’s fun, we’re working on acting, not just remembering our lines. Alexandra and Cleopatra are regal, Mattathias is angry, Alexander is drunk, we’re all having a good time. Had costume fittings today, we’re going to be the well-dressed elite of 2,100 years ago.
Performances are April 20 and 21. Click here for information on ordering tickets.
