Christine Longe (TH '06) is a Cornish Alum who will be performing as Edith in The Two Step this July. The show is being produced with Minion Productions at The Pocket Theatre.
Show description: Edith is an enchanting, worldly woman who dares to dream big. From sleepy suburbia to sweltering Saudi Arabia and everywhere in between, she struggles to marry her independence with her need for love. Will Edith seize the day for one last extraordinary adventure? The Two-Step explores how travel, music, and memory influence a life well-lived.
Christine Longé co-created and launched the two-person show Roberta and the Moon in 2012 for the Edmonton Fringe Festival. Since then, Christine has been busy producing more original works, including clown pieces and The Two-Step, her debut one-act play. Paul Budraitis fortunately agreed to collaborate as her director, and Tom Freeman composed a brand new musical number for the show! The Two-Step will tour to the Winnipeg and Chicago fringe theatre festivals this summer, and hopefully to New Orleans this fall.
In her illusionary spare time, Christine also performs in productions like Story & Song at Annex Theatre (now called Moonshine Revival Tent for Seattle’s Folklife Festival, Bumbershoot, and beyond), and Recipe for Love with Lucia Neare’s Theatrical Wonders. She is obsessed with physical theatre, and would love to run away to join the circus someday. Really: she’s applying to be a clown/physical actor for Cirque du Soleil. According to SEATTLE DANCES, Christine performs with “aplomb... and proves that not all fine physical performers need to spin and kick their legs to communicate.” The EDMONTON JOURNAL says that Ms. Longé is “an adept comedian who acquits herself well in a variety of small roles...appealing...sweet, funny, even lovely.”
