This holiday season, Angelique was able to play onstage again with her Cincinnati Shakespeare Company family as Beth in Little Women.
Beth is so similar to her in so many different ways. The more she discovered about Beth, the more she realized what kindred spirits they really were. And what a wonderful (and incredibly difficult) experience that really was. Those lines between character and actor blurring--especially in a version of this show that deals so heavily with grief and familial loss--were hard to shake off at the end of every night. But she believes this experience was necessary, and so important to grow as a person and as an artist.
She is forever grateful for this experience
And to Beth. She has learned so much from you. The conscious of the family. But the thing that she will never forget is the line:
“You get the privilege of growing up, so use it.”
Which she was able to say every single night. Life is a privilege; it is not a guarantee. And every day that we are alive is a blessing. It is a gift. So how are you going to use it?
