Description

The presentation of Maria Braun truly reflects the collective international expertise of many artists at SCENA. Company co-founder and Artistic Director Robert McNamara, who is directing Maria Braun, is an expert on international drama. He has directed dozens of plays in many overseas countries and brings vast knowledge, expertise, and authenticity of foreign literature and culture to DC audiences. Peter Märthesheimer & Pea Fröhlich, noted German dramatists, translated Maria Braun into English and adapted the cult film for the stage. Gabriele Jakobi, who has directed numerous award-winning plays and festivals in her native Berlin, is serving as SCENA Dramaturg and script consultant. And finally, Alisa Mandel from Russia is serving as costume designer and has created many exotic costumes for SCENA and other international productions in the US and abroad.

Performing the title role is Helen Hayes Award® Winner Nanna Ingvarsson, of Danish descent. She recently performed with SCENA to praiseworthy reviews in the roles of Margaret Thatcher in Sink the Belgrano! (2010) and The Wife in GREEK (2011), both by Britain’s Steven Berkoff. Also for SCENA, Nanna has performed as Solange in The Maids and in the title role in Dark. Nanna was recently honored with a Boomerang Fund for Artists grant in 2011.
