Magical Performance

Earlier this year I wrote in praise of (Much) Older Women Artists, and did a little podcast just after the Tony Awards in June.

This post adds to my ongoing hommages of women who inspire.

Yesterday afternoon I saw Robyn Nevin‘s performance in The Year of Magical Thinking, directed by Cate Blanchett for Queensland Theatre Company.  Her performance in this play, a monodrama adapted from Joan Didion‘s novel, is as truthful, vulnerable, and as moving as its subject matter. It serves as a portrait of the artist at the height of her powers. Didion, Nevin, and Blanchett are quite a trio. Brava!
