Odds ‘n Ends Updates

Here’s are a few blurbs I added to various pages of the website.

Enjoy, Totally Kate Webmaster

Iphigenia 2.0 page:

Emily Kinney is performing in Signature Theatre Company’s of Charles Mee’s Iphigenia 2.0, which began previews last week.

On cast member Kate Mulgrew, who plays Clytemnestra:

“I love watching her. She just takes control. No time is ever wasted. Even if they’re just running through a piece of the play for technical reasons, she makes every time count. She really puts herself in it every time. And she’s not afraid to ask questions.”

Salomon, Andrew. “Dogged, dog days, and the lazy dog: our actors assign different roles to the slow month of August.(TAKE 5).” Back Stage East 48.33 (August 16, 2007)

Of Ashes and Atoms page:

When seen on DVD, Of Ashes and Atoms measures up well against higher budget primetime programs like NOVA. The fact that the narration is meticulously executed by Kate Mulgrew (Captain Janeway of Star Trek: Voyager) helps. Mulgrew’s performance is polished and thoughtful, a quality that Polaczynski attributes to her professionalism. “I hardly had to give her any direction,” he said. “Most of the time, she would ask for retakes herself whenever they were required.”

Titus Andronicus page:

De Vries and other good guys did their jobs well enough; but this is a play in which the villains have all the best lines, and the villains were wonderful, especially Kate Mulgrew as the vile Tamora, Queen of Goth. In her most ignominious scene, as she urges her doltish sons Bill Camp and Don Harvey, and hard to say which was nastier, to rape Lavinia, Mulgrew epitomizes the play’s distinctive spirit of gleeful evil. Sin for sin, not even Richard III can compare with Tamora for exultant infamy.

Heartbeat page:

People Weekly (March 28, 1988)
HEARTBEAT ABC (Wed., March 23, 9 p.m. ET) They fight. They talk. They hug. This two-hour premiere of a weekly one-hour dramatic series is about a group of women doctors (most of whom could double as fashion models) who set up their own medical center in L.A. Here, at Bay General, patients call doctors by their first names and drop by their houses at night, unannounced, for medical advice. To keep the battle of the sexes alive, several male doctors (including a hot-to-trot pediatrician and a swinging fertility specialist) have been admitted to the staff. Characters include Kate (Throw Momma from the Train) Mulgrew as a divorced, workaholic obstetrician; Laura (L.A. Law) Johnson as a sexy, pioneering cancer surgeon; and Ray (Places in the Heart) Baker as the world’s dumbest shrink, and that’s going some. Actually, for a soap opera, the show isn’t half bad, but then it is the brainchild of Dynasty co-creator Esther Shapiro. The camaraderie among the women, especially when they rib each other about their sex lives, is refreshingly candid, as are the debates over female medical issues and the footage of babies being born.
