The Centaur Stage
The Centaur Stage grew out of acting classes taught by Gillien Goll and was formed by a group of actors who wanted to expand their artistic growth into other interdisciplinary areas such as writing and directing. With that goal in mind, their first production, “Apartment Stories,” was an evening of short plays written by actor member Louis Lembo and directed by company members.
This production was followed by a new adaptation conceived and directed by Gillien Goll, with Assistant Director/Choreographer Robert Gilbo, of “Spoon River Anthology” presented on Theatre Row. The response to this was so enthusiastic that this production received a second run and was asked to perform a shorter version for Lincoln Center’s Meet the Artist Program as well as giving a complimentary performance for the Hudson Guild Senior Center.
The Centaur Stage also did several readings and a staged reading of Ms.Goll’s immersive play, “Bandstand: A Reelin’ and a Rockin’.”
And now The Centaur Stage is embarking on a new adventure, to expand into film, with the short film, “From Venus With Love,” written by Ms. Goll with a cast that again includes several of her acting students. www.FromVenusWithLovefilm.com
