Elia Monte-Brown, our very own Maria Ximena, takes readers inside AMERICAN (TELE)VISIONS, and her transformation into Maria Ximena: how cues help her navigate the role’s emotional shifts, preparing for the emotional whiplash with heart-openers, and the repetition that helped it all become instinct.

Bidding Farewell to His Theatrical Flock

“The Tony Awards ceremony had just wrapped up at Radio City Music Hall, and it was time for the parties. But for one honoree, James C. Nicola…there would be no stop-off for toasts at the Plaza Hotel or after-midnight carousing at Tavern on the Green.

Instead, he headed to a nearby parking garage, and settled behind the wheel of a rental van for the 40-minute ride back to the dorms at Adelphi University on Long Island, where he’d be sleeping that night. As far as he was concerned, there was no other choice: He had pickup duty at 10 a.m. for a group of young artists arriving by train for one of the summer workshops that have been a hallmark of his 34-year tenure at one of Off Broadway’s most beloved theaters.”
