As I’ve mentioned, Mrs. Hawking is a bit of a power fantasy for me. I just love the idea of this small person being so physically dangerous. It’s an important part of her character that she is a warrior, and it sure adds a lot of visual excitement to see her really kick ass. What’s a superhero story or an action caper without awesome fight scenes? So that means that we needed really cool fight choreography to convey just how tough she is.

Our very talented violence designer is Arielle Kaplan, also the actress playing Mrs. Fairmont in this production, and she did an amazing job making Mrs. Hawking look like a badass. And Mary, though new to brawling, gets in a few good licks as well!

We took this little reference video during rehearsal the other day. It shows actors Frances Kimpel (Mrs. Hawking), Samantha LeVangie (Mary), and Bobby Imperato (Colchester) working on their choreography. We’re still a little rough– and you’ll notice a cameo by yours truly standing in for the other mook –but this should give you a taste of the cool scene we have planned. It’s going to look amazing when we get it all polished up.

Mrs. Hawking, by Phoebe Roberts, will be performed at Arisia 2015 on Friday, January 16th at 6PM at the Westin Waterfront Boston.
