Sharon Talbot to Lead Industry Reading of HER EXCELLENCY
by Tyler Peterson - Oct 19, 2015

Estes Park Productions will present an invited industry reading of Louis Nevaer's new dark comedy about the Reagan administration on November 5th. The arms-for-hostages Iran-Contra scandal in 1984 casts a shadow over Ronald Reagan's foreign policy. Jeane Kirkpatrick, American ambassador to the United Nations, is in conflict with Nora Astorga, Nicaragua's deputy foreign minister who has become that nation's ambassador to the United Nations. The women, mocked as 'Amazonian Bitches' by the delegates to this male-dominated organization, clash as each tries to sway world public opinion. Their confrontations become legendary as they work feverishly to prevail-each coming to respect the other before fate intervenes.

InDepth InterView: Lynne Taylor-Corbett & THE SEVEN DEADLY SINS
by Pat Cerasaro - May 4, 2011

Staging one of the theatre's most unique and unclassifiable pieces, Brecht & Weill's THE SEVEN DEADLY SINS for the New York City Ballet, starting May 11 and running through May 16, is just the latest act in a career made up of anomalies, seemingly built upon always attempting to do the impossible - from her Broadway debut, trying to bring balletic bravado to Trevor Nunn's terminally troubled 1988 musical CHESS (a project begun under the guidance of Michael Bennett before his death), up through the trying-but-Tony-winning TITANIC in 1997 and, this century, SWING! starring Ann Hampton Callaway and Laura Benanti and a succession of successful regional ballets and theatre pieces - the gifted and dynamic director/choreographer Lynne Taylor-Corbett continues to challenge herself, her peers and audiences with each of her audacious new endeavors. THE SEVEN DEADLY SINS, starring two-time Tony-winning Broadway legend Patti LuPone as Anna I, is a particularly problematic play - or is it a musical? Or, is it a ballet? A song-spiel? - and in this revealing and engaging discussion, Ms. Taylor-Corbett and I attempt to deduce the themes, analyze the structure and look back at the authors' lives to gain insight into the perplexing America painted by Brecht and Weill in the forty-minute-long theatrical experiment. Also, in this complete conversation, Lynne and I take a look back at her long and varied career and she generously shares her thoughts on where the place of dance is in the twenty-first century, the exhilaration of working with a theatre artist like Patti LuPone, her own inspirations and formative experiences in the theatre, the legacy of Michael Powell and THE RED SHOES, the theatre versus the dance world, her son Shaun's career, and much, much more! Further information on THE SEVEN DEADLY SINS - including tickets - is available here.
