The striking Liza Nagle ties up our cast of actors, bringing her subtlety and spark to the role of Tamara, Gwen’s wife. Tamara is the other party host, and provides an honest mirror for the boisterous Gwen throughout the play. Liza has a way of delivering her lines as casually as two friends chatting in the park, but with an understated fierceness that leaves you wondering what her true intentions are. We also fondly refer to Tamara as “Mama Tam,” another beautiful aspect of Liza’s personality that she brings to the stage.
In her day life, Liza is a preschool teacher at Bright Horizons, and has always felt a strong passion for teaching both in and out of the theatre. She has worked at The Greater Boston Stage Company, formerly known as Stoneham Theatre, since 2007 as a director and choreographer for the young company. It’s no wonder she fits right in with the rest of our teaching artists.
Liza has recently performed with South Shore Theater Works: Into the Woods (Witch), Children of Eden (Snake), A Christmas Carol (Ghost of Christmas Present), Cabaret (Sally Bowles). Don’t miss her as the calm and collected Tamara in KINGS, this May 18 and 19 in Somerville.
