Rebecca Lea McCarthy is delighted to be playing Randy in Superior Donuts. She graduated with a BFA in theater from Cornish College of the Arts, a PhD in Comparative Studies from Florida Atlantic University, and has been lucky enough to live a life filled with theatre, improvisation, and clown work, while performing in the Northwest, NYC, Florida, Arizona and Hawaii. Some of her favorite roles include Meg in Defiance, Doris in Same Time Next Year, Betty in The Anastasia Trials in the Court of Women, Edith in Blithe Spirit, Martha in Arsenic and Old Lace, and working with the CBGB Improvisation Group in NYC, and guesting with On the Spot Improv in Hawaii. Rebecca believes in the power of comedy, pratfalls, communication and a well placed whoopee cushion! Rebecca’s Webpage can be found at Rebeccamccarthy.com.

Regarding Superior Donuts, Rebecca told us:
This is an amazing play. On the surface, Superior Donuts offers a straight forward story line, but as the layers are peeled off you discover a rich texture of characters, all of who are acquiring and learning how to become courageous in their lives. Traci Letts is an amazing crafter of character, story line, and action. I am fortunate enough to get to play Randy, a police officer who needs to find the courage to become herself and reach out to the people she loves. This is never an easy task! I am honored to have this journey and to be working again with Eil Foster, Brian Gibson and TAG.
Superior Donuts will be running May 8-31, 2015. Go to http://www.taghawaii.net or call 808-722-6941 for tickets. Seats are going fast already! This should be another great show.
