Chris Myers on Retail Hell & Being Behind Bars in Whorl Inside a Loop

first_img View Comments Age: 27Hometown: New York CityCurrent Role: Playing convicted felon Jeffrey, who is more vulnerable and shy than his fellow inmates, as well as a lisping female minister, a five-year-old boy and a certain crisply coiffed presidential candidate in Dick Scanlan and Sherie Rene Scott’s prison-set drama Whorl Inside a Loop.Stage Cred: Myers won an Obie Award for his performance in last season’s An Octoroon. His other off-Broadway credits include Brownsville Song, Little Children Dream of God and more.“I grew up on the Upper West Side and still live there. I was an only child with a single mom. There was a lot of empty space in my life for my imagination to keep me occupied.”“I observed an acting class doing King Lear. The guy playing King Lear was absent, so the teacher turned to me and said, ‘You’re not just going to watch—you’re going to get up here.’ That was my introduction to acting; I was nine.”“My first job was at Pinkberry in SoHo. The customers were a lot of fashion people. It was not for me. Then I worked at Converse, where the shoppers were a lot of Europeans on vacation. I couldn’t take it.”“I was supporting myself as a DJ for a while after Juilliard. Working as an actor started to conflict with that—you can’t be in the club until four when you have an audition the next morning. I am now supporting myself solely as an actor; it’s been an adjustment.”“An Octoroon came out of nowhere for me, but it was such an important experience. It was jarring and mind-blowingly weird, but I knew I could put my heart into it. I was expecting protests outside the theater, not unanimous critical appraisal.”“I’ve been privileged to work on some pieces that have social implications and Whorl Inside a Loop fits that pattern. I’ve taught in prisons and marched for prison reform; the themes the play is dealing with are really important to me.” Related Shows Whorl Inside a Loop Show Closed This production ended its run on Sept. 27, 2015last_img read more

Helen charges back to win English senior title

first_img Leicestershire’s Helen Lowe staged a superb fightback to become the new English senior women’s amateur champion at Woodall Spa.She’d been trailing Julie Brown – the defending champion – since the turn and was three down after 14 holes of the final. But then she turned the tide. She produced a pair of birdies to launch a charge and won four holes in a row to snatch victory on the 18th.“That was when I started pinching myself and thinking ‘Is it really me that has done this?’ It’s absolutely fantastic, I couldn’t happier,” she said.Lowe (image © Leaderboard Photography), who has twice been the Leicestershire county champion, was playing in this event for only the second time. On her debut last year she qualified for the second flight match play; this time she played her way comfortably into the championship match play and proceeded to despatch a series of high quality opponents.First to fall was former champion Caroline Berry (Bromborough), followed by international Lulu Housman (Highgate) and then, in the semi-final, the number two seed Lindsey Shaw (Chevin).The final brought her up against Staffordshire’s Brown, who was not only the defending champion, but also the top seed and an international who last year helped England become European and Home International champions.The first few holes were closely contested, but Lowe (Scraptoft) hit a wobble in the middle, lost her putting touch for a few holes and was three down after 14. But then her feel on the greens returned and she started an unbeatable charge, with birdies on the 15th and 16th, followed by a solid par on 17 to get back to all square.On the 18th Lowe’s birdie putt stayed out, but finished stone dead, while Brown (Trentham) missed a three-foot par putt to keep the match alive.The title belonged to Lowe and she said: “It’s been great, senior golf has opened up a whole new world.” As well as playing in England events, she also finished sixth in last year’s British senior championships.The Flight Two matchplay was won by Debbie Warren (King’s Norton) on her debut appearance in this event, beating former international Roz Adams (Royal Blackheath) by 5/3 in the final.“It was a really good match,” said Warren, who has been Staffordshire county champion three times. “It was nip and tuck at the beginning, and Roz holed some very good putts, but over the last five or six holes I went up a gear.“My long game was fantastic and I hit some iron shots close and had a couple of birdies.”On her way to the final Warren defeated past senior champion Sue Dye (Delamere Forest), Airlie Dyson (Batchworth Park), and former British senior champion Katherine Russell (Royal Ashdown Forest).“I played really good golf over the two days and I’m certainly level par for the four rounds, or under par,” said Warren.She described the match play rounds as a “fresh start” after the two days of stroke play qualifying, played in brutal conditions of strong winds and rain.Click here for full scores 8 May 2015 Helen charges back to win English senior title last_img read more
