Straight from Bear's Mouth – Lindsay Smiling on 'Boulevard'

Tue, 04/30/2013

Listen to Boulevard's "Bear" Lindsay Smiling on coming back to Philly and working on this world premiere.

"After leaving Philadelphia 9 years ago to test my mettle in New York City, I returned to the City of Brotherly Love this past January not in defeat, but with clearer understanding of what work I want to do in theater. Work that not only entertains, but asks questions, challenges both actor and audience. Theater that is human more than anything else. I had worked with Matt Pfeiffer both as an actor and as a director, and knew his sensitivity, insight, and passion would give North of the Boulevard soul and heart. Working with Theatre Exile for the first time and having the opportunity to help fine tune Bruce Graham’s poignant new play has been extraordinary. This production is the perfect example of why I moved back to this beautiful city."
