Mark Steelman/Thalian Association

As an actor and singer with a belt, Katherine Vernon has admired the character "Rose" (and Ethel Merman, who premiered it) for a long time. She landed the role with Thalian Association, and she can be seen onstage at Thalian Hall through April 9. The play is "Gypsy," the true story of burlesque strip-tease artist, Gypsy Rose Lee ("Louise" as a child). Rose is her mother, and her character has been called the most complex musical theatre role available to women. The musical itself has received high praise; it's based on the memoir Gypsy wrote about growing up with her mother and her more-talented sister, June. Listen to Katherine Vernon talk about the role and the musical above. 

Director Anthony Lawson and actor Katherine Vernon (Martha) discuss the award-winning play by Edward Albee, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?  The Thalian Association presents this play as a part of their summer series at the Red Barn Studio Theatre downtown.   In addition to Katherine Vernon, other actors include Ron Hasson (George), Hal Cosec (Nick) and Maria Katsadouros (Honey).
