A few Random Questions for…Kathryn Meister!

Kathryn “Kat” Meister is the Stage Manager Extraordinaire for Boomerang’s production of CYMBELINE. Kate began with Boomerang last summer as the Stage Management Intern on A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM, and followed that up as Assistant Stage Manager for our production of LOVE’S LABOUR’S LOST. In addition to her work at Boomerang, she’s stage managed productions with numerous companies around NYC in her short time on the East Coast. Kat answered a few random questions while preparing for the final four performances of CYMBELINE…

How many Boomerang shows have you done?  This is my 3rd Boomerang show and second time working with Cailin!

Tell us a little about the job of the Stage Manager: The Stage Manager really takes care of the show from rehearsals to performance. This is done by making sure that everything stays on schedule, actors are safe, and lines of communication are kept open between the director, actors, designers and producers.  The SM is really the center spoke of a wheel to keep the show moving along, SM’s are also known to function on little sleep plus a lot of coffee.

What is your favorite thing about working on Cymbeline? The new music by Henry Aronson really gets stuck in my head in the best way and I love watching the beautiful Kabuki moments take place every performance, specifically the River sequence when Imogen must swim across a river.

What’s your favorite place in New York City? There’s a coffee shop in the Village called The Uncommons that has all kinds of board games in addition to decent coffee.

In keeping with the spirit of economy, can you give us your 6 word memoir:   LA to NY, never looked back​.

Cymbeline runs July 11th, 12th, 18th and 19th at 2pm in Central Park (enter at 72nd and Central Park West) Additional details can be found here. Cymbeline is free, no tickets or reservations are required.

Midsummer Night’s Dream opening day pictures

(Don’t worry, we put all the incriminating ones on Instagram)

On June 21st, we celebrated not just the first performance of A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM (which, by the way, is a critical and audience hit!) but also marked our 16th season in Central Park. We are honored to provide access to free Shakespeare performance, and have performed for near twenty five thousand audience members during that time.

Here’s a few pics of the talented and sexy cast of MIDSUMMER enjoying opening day!
