Spotlight on Allison Blaize

The Road Theatre on Magnolia is proud to present The Spanish Prayer Book by Angela J. Davis and directed by Lee Sankowich. The fascinating historical play about the power of art to forge human connections had its official opening on Friday September 20 and plays until November 10. Each week we will spotlight a cast member. This week the light shines on Allison Blaize.

What character do you play in Spanish Prayer Book? How does she contribute to the play? 

Michaela Adler. The play follows her journey into her family's secrets, and the life-altering decision she has to make because of them.

Any challenges to overcome as an actor? 

It's always interesting working on a new play!  Discovering how to build the character without a precedent.  It is truly exciting!

What to you is the message of the play?

I believe the message of this piece is that God (whatever or whoever that may be to you) is LOVE. 

Tell us about your director and fellow cast mates.

It was a pleasure to work with Lee and all my fellow cast mates.  Everyone was fully invested in the work and process. I have truly enjoyed working with each and every one of them.

What do you hope will be audience takeaway?

People aren't so different from one another, and everyone has something that matters to them.  

The Road on Magnolia is located in the NoHo Senior Arts Colony at 10747 Magnolia Blvd. There is plenty of street parking but allow yourself plenty of time. Tickets may be purchased at 818- 761-8838.
