BWW Interview: Kristen Hahn: The Many Layers of Sgt. Sarah Brown
by Carla Maria Verdino-SŁllwold - Jun 27, 2017

"She's a wonderfully layered character," Kristen Hahn exclaims as she describes her newest role. "Most of all in her heart she wants to help people, but she is not quite cut out to rule with an iron fist like her mentor, General Cartwright. I think at first she is feeling a little lost and not willing to admit it. When she meets Sky Masterson, they go head-to-head. She is probably the first woman to challenge him. As the play develops, she realizes maybe she can have both her mission work and love.

Sarah Brown is a strong lady, and that is a wonderful treat for an actress to play!" she concludes. (more...)

BWW Review: AN OCTOROON is Anything But Black and White at Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company
by Evann Normandin - Jul 23, 2017

Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company's stunning remount of AN OCTOROON by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, directed by Nataki Garrett reunites the principal cast and production teams from Woolly's sold out 2016 run.

In the heart of the nation's capital, a stone's throw from The White House, AN OCTOROON is a living, breathing, vital dialogue about racial tension in America. (more...)
