Remaly had been feeling “kind of detached from the process,” she says. “And then I read Annapurna and knew this was something I needed to be a part of. It’s not just a comedy, drama or tragedy; it has elements of everything. It shows how things can turn on a dime in any given moment and how we need to laugh in some of the darkest moments. It’s a wonderful portrait of two people who have loved each other and sometimes hated each other over so much of their life.”
Chris Kendall and Kate Gleason star, and “they have amazing chemistry,” adds Remaly. “They’re fearless; they’ll try anything. And in the 24 hours between one rehearsal and the next, you can tell how much time they’ve spent exploring on their own. I’m just having a blast with this.”
Annapurna opens tonight with a preview and runs through February 16 at the Dairy Center for the Arts, 2590 Walnut Street in Boulder. For tickets, $15 to $25, go to betc.org or call 888-512-7469.
