Christiana Cole in readings of “The Lady Scribblers,” “The Book Thief” and “Mary Walker Wears What She Wants”
Christiana is having a very busy spring, with three readings on their plate over the next two weeks.
THE LADY SCRIBBLERS at the Drama League, Tuesday March 27 at 7:30pm. A reading of a new period comedy by Michaela Goldhaber, directed by Pat Diamond. Christiana plays Anne Bracegirdle, the premier comedienne of Restoration Comedy in London in the late 17th century.
THE BOOK THIEF (closed reading) on April 9th. THE BOOK THIEF is a new musical based on the best-selling book of the same name, by Elyssa Samsel & Kate Anderson (best known for writing “Olaf’s Frozen Adventure“) and produced by world-famous author Jodi Picoult. Christiana plays the roles of Barbara Steiner, Sister Maria, and Ilsa Hermann.
MARY WALKER WEARS WHAT SHE WANTS at The Mary Rodgers Room at The Dramatists Guild, April 13 at 8 pm. Book & Lyrics by Christian Duhamel (winner of the 2018 Kleban Prize) and Music by Ayumi Okada, with additional book and lyrics by Charissa Bertels. MARY WALKER is set in the Civil War, and explores our ideas of gender. Christiana plays Jennie, a person assigned female at birth (AFAB), who takes on a male identity (and the name Levi) in order to search for their brother on the battlefield. They choose to remain Levi even after the war is over. As a genderfluid performer, Christiana is thrilled to be playing a role that invites exploration of gender.
