Over the past few weeks Jackie & I have had the pleasure of working with the incredibly talented, humble and hilarious Lucie Pohl. With 4 and 5 star reviews of her one woman character comedy Cry Me A Liver coming in over the weeks we were together along with some sold out shows, it was the perfect first fringe experience for both Jackie & myself.
Looking back on the first day we met with Lucie, both Jackie & I were nervous about what she would be like in person and how it would go. Having only communicated a bit over email as we set up to work together it was a mix of ‘would this be a good show’ ‘what would she be like to work with’ and ‘would I come away having learned anything?’ It’s safe to say that in the past month I have not only learned about the craziness that is pre show flyering, I’ve also learned how hectic and draining a 25 day run of shows can be and how strong you need to be to get through it all.
I got to see the show evolve, from the first day of previews to the week of performances and that in itself was interesting. All in all, Jackie & I couldn’t have been happier to have had the opportunity to work with the pure talent that is Lucie Pohl and can’t wait to see where her career heads.
