RIP Maestra. We presented our 2018 Actors Studio Production of Irene Fornes’ “The Danube”, directed by Estelle Parsons, at National Theatre Institute in New London, CT and at Trinity Rep/Brown University in Providence RI,
and at The Public Theater, (425 Lafayette St, New York, NY 10003) as part of the Irene Fornes Marathon. The Marathon was presented in connection with showings at MOMA in NYC that week of Michelle Memran’s documentary about Fornes entitled THE REST I MAKE UP .
Here’s a link to another site dedicated to the film: THE REST I MAKE UP.
Back in April I was privileged to attend the Maria Irene Fornes Latinx Symposium at Princeton University where we presented some scenes from “The Danube”. We’d presented a run of the play at The Actors Studio in NYC in February.
