Everybody knows that actors love to eat. At LRT, food, along with actor salaries, tops our budget. From lunchtime improvisations to post-performance debriefings, delicious dishes share the spotlight at LRT.
Our focus on food began with rehearsals for The Seagull when Randolyn brought lunch for the cast every day. She orchestrated a picnic for a scene that doesn’t appear in the play: Konstantin’s 12th birthday party. Rocky (Masha) baked traditional Russian cookies (his favorite) and wrote a poem. Mike (Konstantin) penned a short play. There was wine, a basket packed with Russian cheese, black bread and grapes, and a tradition was born.
