It's time for another top-secret, behind-the-scenes, finger-licking-good edition of "Getting Up Close and Liminal with the Limbo Crew!"
Today, we’ve tracked down the ever-elusive Maddie Aprile to get a special report on the development of LIMBO. We sat down with Maddie to talk about life, Limbo and much more. Here is our conversation with her.
What does your perfect Sunday afternoon look like?
A perfect Sunday afternoon would involve tea, a movie (crime thriller) and a cream cheese and strawberry bagel. Friends would also be allowed into that equation so long as they don’t ask to eat my food.
What’s the last thing you do before you step out on stage?
Normally before a show I get so nervous that I don’t really like to talk. It sounds silly but I’ve always reacted to nerves that way. So just before I go out on stage I have to remember to loosen any tension in my jaw.
In LIMBO, you’re playing Josie. How much are you and Josie alike?
Josie is very similar to me in the sense that she strongly values her heritage. She takes great interest in immersing herself in the cultural values of her European heritage and freely allows it to shape the person she will become.
Why did you want to be involved in this production?
I wanted to be involved in this production because it reflects the idea that during times of misfortune even strangers can come together to support others in their state of pain or panic. It is a lovely reminder that despite all our differences, when needed most, we can form one nurturing community.
And that brings our chat with Maddie Aprile to an end. A huge thank you must go to Josie and we wish her the best as we all move closer and closer to the show. And an super special thanks to Isabeau Schubert for the stunningly awesome photography!
