WET SOCKS OFF OFF BROADWAY
THE BRIGHT LIGHTS OF THE 42ND STREET SUBWAY
"Wet Socks" is the newest romantic comedy by Kathleen Wilce. A short play, it will be shown at the TSI/PLAYTIME theater on Friday June 3 at 8, and Sunday June 5 at 5, together with several other short pieces. (Call TSI at 212 719-0500 for tickets.) The story starts at the 42nd Street subway station (and that's Kathleen in the picture above, standing below the lights that give her play its initial impetus and energy).
Kathleen has written a number of plays in the last few years, and performed in some of them herself. (And I've seen her work and I like it.) When she can see the story played out on a stage in her head, she will direct it, and when she cannot see anyone else in a role, she'll take it herself.
She's studied with several Russian directors -- at least one who is exceptionally intense -- as well as some other instructors, but she's much more of a fun person than an ideologue.
As an actress, next season Kathleen may be seen in her second appearance in an episode of Sopranos.
