Our topic is “That Explains Everything.”

For the past month, I have been wracking my brain for ideas. I am trying not to panic – after all, my past two months’ pieces were written either the day before or the day of the performance. But I know that this time I will be up against “the big kids” – 7 other finalists - and I want to write something extra amazing.

Since I am one of the finalists, I know that I am capable of...

After having auditioned for nearly all of the past productions The Stage has put on, and not quite making it through…it was “Consider Yourself” from the old classic Oliver Twist that impressed the judges and got me through the Miscast 2 auditions. My persistence had paid off – Broadway, here I come!

So, for those of you who are not familiar with the concept of the Miscast theme, the idea of the show is that every number, group,...

“This is one of my all-time favorite games.” 

 

We’ve gotten used to hearing these words every Friday morning when we meet for The Stage’s Improv for Advanced Beginners Workshop. Under the instruction of Uri Lifshitz, a member of the Lamabati Improv Ensemble, we have been honing our improvisation skills for the past 8 weeks. We have a fairly large group with many different levels of theater and improvisation experience, yet Uri’s...

For those of us who braved the rain, wind, and cryptic addresses, we were rewarded with another exciting night of spoken word at The Stage’s “Turning Points” Poetry Slam and Storytelling event on Saturday, March 21st. 

The event took place at the Ktovt Bar in south Tel Aviv, whose intriguing décor includes a wall of plants growing from old shoes and a birdcage filled with baby dolls. As with last month’s event, the space filled...

"A Production." It's a loaded term that can apply to many events and situations in life. For example, a bar-mitzvah or a wedding can be considered a special event "production." When your car breaks down and you're late to an important meeting and you have to walk halfway there, it could be considered a crisis "production" (or a “balagan,” if you're Israeli) as you must be resourceful and think of a creative way to reach your de...

My name is Dani. I am a senior Acting Major at Emerson College in Boston, Massachusetts, USA. I had the pleasure of interning for The Stage last summer. I was part of an internship program that matches students in Boston with companies in the fields we are studying in Israel. I could not have been paired with a better company than The Stage. Many theater students work for theater companies and do not get any say in what they ar...

Miscast! A Musical Revue is coming up, and I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek at their first group rehearsal. Walking in the door to Yad La’Banim I saw a group of women dancing to the sounds of Greased Lightning. It was a funny, energy filled performance, spiking my interest about the rest of the pieces. In the same room I saw Keren and Manuela, both in The Stage’s marketing committee, working on marketing material, and in...

Meet Guy Seeman, The Stage’s chairman and senior strategic advisor! Israeli born, he spent most of his life in the U.S. before returning to Israel in 2008. A major part of his role with The Stage is making sure we run smoothly on an organizational level. Creating protocols, working on our organizational structure and hierarchies, making sure the committees are working well with each other, working with the government; he does a...
