Interview: One Life To Live’s Scott Sickles And Florencia Lozano In Verbatim Verboten
Come out and join Florencia and Scott to benefit the WorkShop Theater!
One Life to Live’s Florencia Lozano (Tea Delgado Manning) will be appearing at the WorkShop Theater tonight Monday October 18 for a special performance of “Verbatim Verboten.” Created by Michael Martin, directed by Jonathan Pereira, the play will be presented in association with Quade Productions, Ltd. and is set to begin at 8.00 PM in the Main Stage Theater at 312 West 36th Street, Fourth Floor East, in New York City, New York.
Llanview script writer Scott Sickles, who is also the WorkShop Theater’s Artistic Director, will be performing alongside Florencia. “Verbatim Verboten” is described as being “an ever-changing revue of staged, word-for-word transcripts of noted people (and some ordinary folk) saying things they never meant for the public to hear: surveillance tapes, secretly recorded conversations, forgotten open mics, on-camera diatribes, released e-mails, private correspondence, etc.”
Of working with Florencia, Scott shared with Soaps.com, “Florencia is fearless and funny which are two great qualities to have for Verbatim Verboten. Her appearance here also continues a long tradition between the WorkShop Theater Company and soaps. We used to hold an annual gala benefit called Daytime at Nighttime that featured many Daytime TV stars performing a giant cabaret act for us including OLTL’s Ilene Kristen [Roxy] and Kim Zimmer [Echo]. The evening was co-hosted each year by ATWT’s Ellen Dolan [Margo] who, along with OLTL’s ex-Mrs. Bigelow, Patricia O’Connell, are long-standing members of the company. I personally don’t appear on stage myself very often, but I couldn’t resist the opportunity of performing some very fun material with Florencia. As a consummate actor and, as it turns out, fierce playwright, she’s an inspiration and a delight.”
Tickets for the event are $15 and can be purchased through the WorkShop Theater. If you get there early, doors will open at 6.30 PM where you’ll be able to enjoy music provided by DJ Skillz. The WorkShop Theater Company is a non-Profit 501(c)3 Organization. Due to a special matching grant, the theatre will receive an extra $1 for every $3 donated through November 25, 2010.
