Superstars, Slices of Lives Productions: "The Unheard Cries of Natalie Wood"

"Superstars" Slices of Lives Productions - "The Unheard Cries of Natalie Wood"

From April 16 to June 4, every Saturday night, Actress Lorraine Farris will be performing her segment titled "The Unheard Cries of Natalie Wood" in the Slices of Lives Productions titled Superstars.

I will most likely be attending on "Industry Night" but I don't have that particular date yet. Any of you close enough to the city who would care to see this performance, it's performed on Saturdays at 8pm at the Susan Batson Studio Theater, 300 W 43rd St., NY, NY.

It was "Goodbye Natalie Goodbye Splendour" that helped inspire Lorraine to acknowledge Natalie in her segment. She contacted me months ago after reading GNGS and then she allowed me to read her compelling script. She is sole author of her interpretation, and her tribute to Natalie is heartrending. Lorraine's scene is about 40 minutes in length and she plays Natalie Wood. Two other actresses playing Ann Margaret and Sophia Loren will perform their pieces separately as well.

Susan Batson directs. About the director:
Actor, writer, director, producer, teacher, and coach Susan Batson has been called a "technician of the spirit" by the New Yorker. In private consultation on film sets all over the world, and in her New York- and Hollywood- based Black Nexxus acting studios, Susan Batson has enjoyed the privilege of working with Nicole Kidman, Juliette Binoche, Tom Cruise, Jennifer Lopez, Chris Rock, Jamie Foxx, Sean 'P. Diddy' Combs, Liv Tyler, Jennifer Connelly, and countless other actors searching for truthful connections between themselves and the characters that they play.

  1. Marti do you think they would video the show? I would love to see her show. Thanks. Pam

  2. Pam, I'm not sure but I will ask. I would think at least one filming would occur for archives....I'll see if I can get a DVD of it if possible. I'm also checking into tickets for the public....I think they are available from the actual studio. Lorraine has been so busy, and I hope to hear from her soon.
