Joel Markowitz interviews actresses Hollis Resnik and Margaret Anne Florence, now starring as Margaret and Clara in Arena Stage’s The Light in the Piazza. They talk about the relationship they have built for these mother and daughter characters, and the advice Molly Smith gave them.
As a special treat, for a few minutes, Hollis slips into her Edith Beale character from her acclaimed performance in the Philadelphia Theatre Company production of Grey Gardens, which Joel saw last year.
“What role,” Joel asked the multi-award winning actress Hollis Resnik, “do you most want to play?” Her answer should set producers scrambling to sign her on.
The Light in the Piazza plays through April 11th at Arena Stage in Crystal City. For tickets and more information about the show, click here.
