"Mama Look Sharp", which ended the first act in this production, was
haunting in no small part to the efforts of Cincinnati College
Conservatory of Music student Randy Harrison. Although a small role,
he has a beautiful voice and his Courier had stage presence; I look
forward to seeing his career blossom in the years to come.

On "Queer As Folk," he plays a lonely gay teenager having an affair with an adult. The graphic sexual content of the show isn't something he always supports.

He calls his character's affair "codependent" and "abusive."

But "I have to do it," he says.

"I signed on to do it. I was aware of it. I still would argue for the merits of it and that people see it.

"I have to remind myself of that when it gets most redundant. ... The sex lives of these characters are the center part of this show, so I have to remember that."

Randy Harrison Interview: Ibsen's Ghosts at Berkshire Theatre Festival
The Actor Talks About Renewing a Classic
Posted by Larry Murray on berkshirefinearts.com; August 5,2009.

To explore what was going on, we headed down to Stockbridge to talk again (2008 Interview) with actor Randy Harrison (see bio below). The rehearsal studios at BTF are very simple, even primitive. They are nestled into a wooded lot that also contains the "camp" kitchen where the actors and apprentices eat their simple meals. The sun was out at last, and with it at his back, through the battered old screen door came Harrison, making a beeline for the tape recorder and me. He was all smiles, and we chatted amiably before settling into what would be a serious discussion.

The Berkshire Theatre Festival has slowly become his regular summer home. The Festival is an artistic and spiritual resource where he retreats to try new things and challenge himself. "It is all of those things to me, plus I get a lot of new opportunities here," he said happily.

Opportunities like playing the son Oswald in Ghosts for the first time. In the play his mother, Mrs. Alving (Dillon), is keeping secrets from him, worsened by horrible advice from a puritanical preacher, Manders (Adkins), and complicated by an infatuation with the maid Regina (Franklin) and her devious father, Engstrand (Epstein). Into this household returns the more worldly Oswald, who is mortally ill. The character is a contradiction, someone who is full of life but facing a death sentence. I wondered just how Harrison was playing the son, as someone with vitality, or as a gloomy Gus.

"That's one of the interesting aspects," Harrison answers, "Oswald talks so much about the joy of life, and that's reflected in his painting. But it is this same vitality that is so much a part of him that killed his father. His dad was not able to express himself like that." In the play it is clear that Mr. Alving was a frustrated man who simply had no outlet to express his own joie de vivre in that repressive society.

"His mother says that for all his life his father was stuck in this gloomy town, one completely devoid of real passion and that there was nothing but business and social status." Back then it was all a matter of simply keeping up appearances, of conforming to the rigid strictures of the Victorian era. "Yes, and so the father self-destructed." But because Oswald had his painting, "He was also able to have a great deal of vitality and life."

From the BTF Newsletter (Aug 2009)
Randy Harrison
Osvald in Ghosts


Randy Harrison knew he wanted to be an actor from the first time he saw a play. When he was ten he began acting in community theatre and hasn't stopped since. At eighteen he went to the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music and received a BFA in theatre. After graduating, he continued his training in New York City over the next five years by taking classes and workshops. He studied with Ron Van Lieu, who now runs the Yale School of Drama, and Siti Company, where he learned Suzuki.

This is Randy's fifth season with BTF. His first show was Equus, back in 2005. "I was going crazy in New York, I was like why am I still in New York; I need to be in the beautiful Berkshires." He enjoys coming back to the Berkshires because he gets to work with familiar faces and friends. In fact, in Ghosts he knew everybody in the cast and had worked with everyone before except one. BTF creates "such an amazing and supportive environment to be an artist in."

Q & A:

~ What is your dream role to play?
I don't have a dream role. I will tell you that the roles I have played here are some of the best that I have ever played. For me it has always been about working on plays by particular writers, more than the roles themselves. I enjoy being able to work on plays by writers that I admire and love. The fact that I have worked on Shaw, Ibsen, and Beckett here is amazing. I do want to play Uncle Vanya when I am an older man, but it isn't something I will play anytime soon.

~Random fact about yourself?
I have been fired from every job besides acting that I have had. I got fired from waiting tables, being a bag boy, temping at a bunch of different companies, and being a caterer. I can't do anything else but act.

The Interview

LM: Glad to see you back in the Berkshires. How are the rehearsals going?

RH: I've been here for four summers now, and I love it. I feel so lucky to be able to spend time here.

We've had rehearsals underway for two and a half weeks now. I never worked on Beckett before. I love Beckett, so I was really excited to have the opportunity to work on a Beckett play.

LM: Did you bring any Beckett baggage with you?

RH: Nothing much beyond a love of it.

LM: The play can be a daunting challenge.

RH: I didn't feel scared really, I just felt really, really excited about it. There's so much academic stuff, so much to study and think about it, and I just tried to scrape it all away and start fresh.

LM: They say that Bert Lahr (who was in the original Waiting for Godot) didn't understand a line of what he was saying.

RH: I don't think you necessary need to. I just tried to be with the director (Anders Cato) and the sсript as I see it. It grows for me, and I think for all of us, every time we say it out loud. I worked with Anders last year on Mrs. Warren's Profession and it is great to have him at the helm again.

LM: So how did it come to be that you got Lucky?

RH: One day Kate Maguire just asked me on the phone. And I knew she had been thinking about doing it. She just loves Beckett and she managed to get a grant for some extra rehearsal time.

Tony Award winner Harriet Harris and Randy Harrison star in the Guthrie Theater's production of Tennessee Williams' The Glass Menagerie, which officially opens Jan. 26.

Joe Dowling directs the production, which features Harris — a Guthrie company member in the '80s — as Amanda Wingfield and Harrison as Young Tom Wingfield. The company also includes Jonas Goslow as Jim O'Connor, Tracey Maloney as Laura Wingfield and Bill McCallum as Older Tom Wingfield. The limited engagement will play through March 25 on the Guthrie's McGuire Proscenium Stage.

Here's a look at the new production:

Harrison, whose stage credits include the Berkshire Theatre Festival productions of Amadeus and Equus, is delighted to have a go at Tom. "I've been in love with this play since I was a young teen," he says. "They did it at my high school in Georgia, but I didn't get cast. That production was the only one I've ever seen -- but the play is so brilliantly written that, when you read it, you immediately understand what the characters are experiencing and fighting for. And it's so fluid that it feels so different every time we run it. I'm excited that we have a nice, long run, because it's going to be great to live in this play for a while."

Of the two-Tom concept, Harrison remarks: "It's fascinating, and I definitely think certain things about the sсript are illuminated that aren't always clear when it's done as written. Bill McCallum and I look a lot alike, and we have a few moments of simultaneous speech to help tie us together. There are also moments when he's observing the action. I think the audience is more aware that the play is this person's memory, and that there's some distance between where is now and what he's remembering."

'Randy Harrison's Tennessee Waltz' (Lavender, January 2007)

BloodVessel
Splendor in the Glass
Randy Harrison’s Tennessee Waltz

by John Townsend; LAVANDER MAGAZINE



In 1944, master gay playwright Tennessee Williams rocked American theater and society with The Glass Menagerie. Its poetic, yet unsettlingly candid, view of the Wingfields, a family abandoned by their father and husband, now ranks as one of the towering achievements of 20th-Century American drama.

The Glass Menagerie is especially relevant in 2007, given the awareness of the American public about single parents battling rocky economic times. Moreover, in subtle ways, this classic, which was inspired by Williams’s own personal experiences, codifies the playwright’s struggle with his homosexual orientation.

It’s fitting that the current Guthrie Theater revival features Queer as Folk star Randy Harrison as protagonist Tom. Indeed, given the sensitivity he revealed in that landmark television series, Harrison’s casting seems nothing less than ideal. If Williams’s spirit is out there peeking in on us, he must be ecstatic that Harrison essentially is playing him.

Randy Harrison's a long way from Babylon.

For five years Harrison played the blond, boyish and not-so-innocent Justin Taylor in Showtime's "Queer as Folk" series. At the height of the show's media blitz, the actor was named "the post-gay gay icon" by New York Magazine, and fans associated him with his party-boy character who frequented the show's fictitious Pittsburgh gay dance-bar called Babylon.

Harrison publicly smiled at all the attention - and privately cringed.

LITTLE BITS: Dance between celebrities has twists and turns

By Krista Richmond / Chronicle lifestyles editor

"Hey guys! I'm actually running late. I hope you enjoy the show," he said as he ran past us into the theatre in a blond blur.

And so ended my brush with the fame of Randy Harrison, who starred in Showtime's Queer As Folk and is finishing a run in the Alabama Shakespeare Festival's production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. It was a highlight for this fan but also made me wonder about the impact of celebrity journalism.

My friend and co-worker (who introduced me to Queer As Folk) and I traveled to Montgomery to see Randy in the production. And we weren't the only ones. I was sure we wouldn't be — Queer As Folk has a very devoted following — but what did surprise me was that the audience seemed to consist of a significant number of Randy fans.

Randy Harrison, a star of Showtime's ''Queer as Folk," is one of the
primary reasons for BTF's success. As the young man who turns on the
horses he loves, Harrison produces a finely etched portrait of
sublimation. He transfers his passion for Jesus to one for equus and
other sources of ecstasy. What he conveys on an even deeper level is
how innocence can so quickly turn to guilt. His religious mother and
stern father have made stirrings of any sort seem sinful to him.

'Equus' is tethered to tame production By Michael Eck [July 20, 2005]

Special to the Times Union
First published: Wednesday, July 20, 2005

STOCKBRIDGE, MASS. -- Seventeen-year-old Alan Strang has blinded six horses, digging at their eyes with a hoof pick.
It's Dr. Martin Dysart's task to determine why; and beyond that to help exorcise the demons that have driven the boy to such desperate action.
читать дальше

The physicality of the play belongs to television actor Randy Harrison who plays Strang.

Harrison is simply not ready for the role.

Throughout much of the first act, he is cardboard. He speaks words without portraying them -- and it's folly to attribute that to the fact that his character has shut down.

In the second act -- in which Strang begins to reveal the reasons behind his actions -- Harrison actually seems afraid of the character. He delivers lines as though he is standing beside himself, and his expressions of desire for the young stable girl, Jill Mason, are wooden and unconvincing.

The fact that so much of "Equus" hinges on Strang's tangle with nature, religion and sexuality -- he is the victim of a messy mix of the Bible, western movies, children's books, English socialism and raging hormones -- is mooted by Harrison's lack of a performance.

`Equus' star prefers the stage to TV work, Talking about life on stage, on television by Steve Barnes from Times Union [July 17, 2005]




`Equus' star prefers the stage to TV work


STEVE BARNES Senior writer
Section: Arts-Events, Page: I1

Date: Sunday, July 17, 2005
Randy Harrison doesn't want to talk about "Queer as Folk."


Although he has co-starred since its inception in the groundbreaking Showtime series about a group of gay men and lesbians in Pittsburgh, Harrison has nothing in particular to say about "QAF." "It's over," he says, the first of many such variants Harrison will utter during a two-hour conversation over sushi in a Great Barrington, Mass., restaurant. He says, with a sense of completion, "I had a wonderful time, but I'm done with it." (He wrapped up shooting "QAF" 's fifth and last season in March; the series finale airs July 31.)

читать дальше

"But now I'm back to auditioning. That's what's important to me," he says. "I don't want to be any more famous than I am. I don't want to be recognized on the street. I don't want to be a leading man in big-budget Hollywood movies. I want to be an actor, primarily on stage, doing challenging, interesting and diverse roles. `Equus' is a good start."



Talking about life on stage, on television

Section: Arts-Events, Page: I4

Date: Sunday, July 17, 2005
Actor Randy Harrison, 27, has played Justin Taylor, a gay artist and part of a group of friends in Pittsburgh, in the Showtime series "Queer as Folk" since 2000. Its fifth and final season, currently airing, concludes July 31. Locally he is co-starring in "Equus," running through next weekend at Berk shire Theatre Festival in Stockbridge, Mass.


On the frank sexuality of "Queer as Folk": "It's fake. People think (filming simulated sex) means more than it does to the actors. What you see in the finished show - that's not anything like what the experience was shooting it. It's funny that (viewers) think that they've seen anything, really. I mean, half the time it's not even me; it's other people's body parts."

On why performing theater in the Berkshires is more artistically rewarding than being on a high-paying TV series broadcast internationally:

"It's a safe environment in which to take risks, and that's something you don't have in television. You just don't. Everything on TV's a time crunch, people are manipulating you to get certain things done, everything is about money and time and saying the line this way because that's what the producer wants."

EDGE National Arts & Entertainment Editor
Thursday Jul 14, 2005



читать дальше

A hit in London and New York (where it ran for more than 1200 performances,) “Equus” is based on a real event, which sparked the imagination of Shaffer who conceived of it as psychological thriller in which the doctor must breakthrough into the boy’s psyche to understand what drove him to commit such a hideous crime.

“In the play the magistrate talks to the doctor telling him that Alan needs to see him because otherwise he’d be demonized by the community and no one would want to help him. He had committed the kind of hideous crime that no one wants to think about with any complexity -- they simply want to label him and put him away.

But as the play develops the doctor is in a dilemma in that if he cures me he feels he’s taking away my individuality by putting me in a different set of shackles. So the question at the center of the play is he helping me to achieve my greatest potential, or simply making me what society thinks as normal? It’s a struggle for him, but in the end he decides to help me because he sees that Alan wants to be helped. But he never really acknowledges if this is the better choice.”

How does Harrison respond to a character who commits such a reprehensible act?

“He’s a difficult guy to relate to, but I personally have to like him. When I prepare for the role, I learn to empathize with him -- putting my self where he is. So I do like him. But I wonder if I encountered him on the street in a certain situation without the knowledge of him I have now that I would. He’s a fascinating character to play, and exhausting. I’m so exhausted after a full day of rehearsal that I can’t do anything else. I’m just not functioning on such a high level at the end of the day because it is so draining. But I don’t bring home any of the baggage from the show because it is just so draining to carry around.”

As he was in virtually every episode of “Queer as Folk,” Harrison will be nude in the play. The difference, though, is that he won’t be doing on film (where, he admits, the highly-charged sex scenes were more technical than erotic, with lots of stopping and starting,) but this time on stage in a love scene with a young woman in the stables.

“I’m very comfortable with it (the on-stage nudity.) I’ve done it before, before “Queer as Folk, and it doesn’t bother me in the least.”

April 5, 2005

The boys were equally impressive. Randy Harrison, the blond "Justin" whom Michelle calls "wise beyond his years," was just 22 and right out of college when I first met him -- and he used my first piece about the show in New York magazine to come out publicly. Peter Paige -- "Emmett" -- was the only other openly gay cast member among the original cast members, although Gale Harold -- "Brian" -- is the most gay-friendly straight man I have ever met.
Randy was grateful for the experience: "Under no other circumstance besides this bizarre job would I have had a chance to learn from such extraordinarily artistic and intelligent people," he said.
But after he demanded (and got) a final hug from Sharon Gless, he was ready to move on: "If you sign a five-year contract, no matter how idyllic the situation, after a few years it's going to feel like a prison ... and it's difficult to feel like a puppet whose literal body is used to make other people a lot more money than you, while the negative repercussions of 'your body as product' continue to invade your privacy, your home and mildly corrode your life."
