Andrew Patterson’s THE VAST OF NIGHT can now be seen in DRIVE-INs and on 

PRIME VIDEO!

Critics are raving about Gail’s performance as MABEL BLANCHE.

… a long, immersive and heartbreaking monologue given by town resident Mabel Blanche (Gail Cronauer) that is simply one for the books.

Mabel (Gail Cronauer) shares her harrowing story with a raw honesty that will have even the most impatient viewer enraptured…

Kimberley Elizabeth, nofspodcast.com

Two of the strongest performances are given by Gail Cronauer and Bruce Davis, both playing characters who call into Everett’s show, and both capable of holding you rapt with their voices alone.

Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times

[Sierra] McCormick …has about a 10-minute scene … that is astonishing. But That isn’t the most jaw-dropping performance on view. That honor belongs to Cronauer as Mabel, delivering a riveting monologue in one extended scene that you simply cannot turn away from. Her performance is exactly why they created the supporting acting category, small but unforgettable, and if this movie gets seen by the actors branch of the Academy — and by all means, I hope it does — she is deserving of a Best Supporting Actress nomination. I can’t think of another one thus far in 2020 who tops what she does in this film. Another shout-out, while we are at it to the inventive cinematography from M.I. Littin-Menz. Everyone involved in this sharp indie deserves applause.

MICHAEL CHEKHOV TECHNIQUE @Theatre 3 in Dallas

Theatre Three, in collaboration with the National Michael Chekhov Association (NMCA) has announced new performance training classes for adult actors, both professional and novice, who are seeking to learn more about the art and science of acting.  In this endeavor Theatre Three seeks to fulfill one of the tenets of its mission statement—to provide a nurturing environment for artists to learn and grow. The theatre will offer classes on Theatre Three’s Norma Young Arena Stage. The class will explore the acting technique developed and taught by master acting teacher and actor Michael Chekhov, and will be taught by highly respected actor and NMCA certified teacher, Gail Cronauer.

“Michael Chekhov’s work and technique is a gift to the performing artist — or anyone interested in peak performance,” says Cronauer. “It gives the actor real tools, fosters a healthy aesthetic, unlocks the imagination, enlivens the body and voice and fosters ease, confidence and courage.”
