With just a few days until opening night for Martin McDonagh's twisted tale, A Behanding in Spokane, PBTS bloggers wanted to chat with some members of the cast. One of those being Kasi Walters, an actress who holds her own as the only female in this wildly talented cast. PBTS blogger Sadie La Manna sat down with Walters, who is no stranger to the Studio Stage, and discussed what brought this talent back for more! Check it out!
1. Where have audiences seen you on the PBTS stage?
I've worked with many talented folks at Players on quite a few productions. Some of them include, BUG, in which I was honored for Best Actress in a play in 2012. I was also involved in Olive and the Bitter Herbs, Tommy, The Lonesome West and Al Letson's Crumbs, among others.
2. What made you want to get back involved in theatre?
Pretty much, the stars aligned and brought me to a place in my life where I COULD get back involved. Theatre is the biggest love of my life and being on stage is my favorite thing EVER! Simple as that.
3. What attracted you to this show/role in paticular?
In all honesty, I really just wanted any way to get back on stage. I also thought it would be great to work with Stephanie again. As far as Marilyn goes, I knew she'd be a blast to bring to life.
4. What has been the most challenging part of this process? The most rewarding?
Most challenging: Many of my lines are similar and happen sporadically. I just want to get it right. Most rewarding: Knowing that we have a show on our hands.
5. Describe A Behanding in Spokane in three words.
Shameless. Foul. Fun.
