Jessi Campbell (a familiar face to Magic audiences) chatted with us about Sam Shepard and her start in the theatre.
Have you been in other Sam Shepard plays?
A Lie of the
What other shows have you done at Magic?
And I And Silence. Sister Play. Fred's Diner.
What does Sam Shepard mean to you?
Sam is my favorite. I auditioned for college with Cowboy Mouth.
How do you think Fool for Love resonates today as compared to 1983 when it premiered at Magic?
This play is timeless. The world is still full of broken men and broken-hearted women.
How did you get into acting, what was your first gig?
Loretta cast me in my first professional play a hundred years ago in New York [Inky, by Rinne Groff]. I had no idea what I was doing, and I was scared to death. (And still am.) She took me under her wing. (And still does.) I am eternally grateful for this woman.
