Tennessee in the Summer Examines the Playwright’s Inner and Outer Voices
Sidewalk Studio Theatre (Burbank, CA)
Daytime Emmy Award-winner Tamara Braun (Taylor and Ava on Days of Our Lives; Reese on All My Children; Carly on General Hospital) jumps from the small screen to the stage of Sidewalk Studio Theatre as “Woman” in Joe Besecker’s Tennessee in the Summer. Dramalogue and Ovation Award-winner Jack Heller plays Tennessee Williams in this examination into the mind and life of one of America’s greatest playwrights. Braun’s character is one of the many voices inside Williams’ head — the inner critic, the troublemaker, the contrarian. It’s the story of the conflict between the male and female aspects of Williams’ mind, and was called “intensely moving” by the Chicago Tribune. Sal Romeo directs.
