The Paris letter arrives in Omaha
March 15th, 2012
Omaha, NE – The Paris Letter, a professional and personal story of a Wall Street man is now showing at SNAPâ€™s Theatre.
The Paris Letter written by Jon Robin Baitz, tells the story of a Wall Street money manager, Sandy Sonnenberg: a closeted gay man. When Sonnenberg is tempted by another Wall Street young man, Anton, his family, business and everything heâ€™s tried to build up starts to fall.
Michele Phillips is the associate artistic director at SNAP! Productions and is directing the show. Phillips says the play stresses the importance of people being true to themselves.
â€œDonâ€™t squelch your initial longings, and your artistic sense and the things that you want to do,” she said.
“Pursue who you are and you will be much happier, and you wonâ€™t need to create some power or mega-structure for yourself…Youâ€™ll be very happy with what youâ€™re doing and being true to yourself,â€ she said.
Although The Paris Letter addresses a serious topic, Phillips said the show is also humorous.
â€œIn order to deliver a humorous line youâ€™ve got to have good timing,” she said. “They (the actors) all have good timing. So, even if itâ€™s a short little pause a beat of a pause that makes that line work, theyâ€™ve all got that timing down.â€
The Paris Letter is now showing through April 1st at SNAPâ€™s theatre in Midtown Omaha.
