Mat Chapman


That's a moment with Maggie and Trent, played by Jordan Leigh Wakefield and Mat Chapman. Mat has a marvelous gliding physical presence. Trent is probably the least sympathetic character in the script, but Mat does an astounding job of bringing out Trent's vulnerable side. From talking to the audience, I know that a lot of them LOVE the character, even though his character is a bit less than sterling.

As I always say, by the time a play is on stage, a good actor knows more about his character than the playwright who invented the character.

That's just a plain fact
about artists who act.

Nice sense of motion I think, and the expression on Mat's face is intriguing.
