Quick Wit: Doug Hara
The actor takes the plunge (literally!) into Mary Zimmerman's Metamorphoses. Jennie Webb talks with him during a dry period.
Zimmerman's critically-acclaimed Metamorphoses is a lovely, revealing, and very funny exploration of the myths of Ovid, wherein gods and goddesses hobnob with their cohorts on a set that is fabulously fluid--literally. The mythical characters move in and around a reflective pool that spans nearly the entire stage.
Actor Doug Hara, a longtime Lookingglass Theatre Company member, has been involved with Metamorphoses since its first professional production. That's a lot of swimming. I thought maybe he'd like to dry out and talk about it.
