"For his production of Happy Now?, legendary American director Jon Jory envisioned a group of four actors charged with creating the physical world of the complex production. The four ensemble members made roughly 200 entrances and exits between them over the course of the 100-minute play. I jumped at the opportunity to ask Cathlyn to fill one of these positions. She brought a wonderful sense of lightness and joy to the process that each of the actors in the production (as well as Mr. Jory) commented on -- high praise indeed from such a veteran group of theater practitioners."
