Ophelia is the most difficult role that Angelique has ever played. Which is crazy because she had the opportunity to play her one time before in college. Her first Shakespeare role in college.
Coming back to this role 4 years later, after doing 10 more Shakespeare plays and learning A LOT, she wanted to do her justice. She has grown so much in the two months that she has worked on this show. She learned so much about herself and learned from the wonderful people that she was in the room with and have the privilege to watch shine every single night.
And while she knows that what makes theatre so great is its ephemerality. That plays “are the abstract and brief chronicles of the time.” This one is going to live in her memory for a long time.
