Last weekend, I went to Meshuggah-Nuns, playing at CentreStage Theatre, Kentville. A great show, all around, and I would think that even if I wasn't already friends with most of the cast. ;-) It was, in fact, so good, I'm going to see it again this weekend, this time not even as a member of the cast group from my play.
Watching the actors in Meshuggah-Nuns though made me realize something, and that is, comedic acting that is, serious goofball, totally friggin' nuts comedic acting is easier than dramatic acting. What I am NOT saying is that comedy is easy to act; it isn't, believe you me.
In my dramatic role in Sarah, Plain and Tall, I'm quickly coming to see how much easier it is to see whether you're being a farce than whether you're being Joe Q. Average. I can do farce convincingly. I'm not sure I've got average down yet.
