I had no proof that I had the stuff to be an artist, yet I hungered to be one.

We come this way but once this brief, brief time on earth- we need to suck it in. The key thing is, you’ll be wanting to let go of fear.

McCalley’s deft directorial hand is beautifully realized throughout the play, guiding her quartet of actors to greater effect throughout and crafting a production that will leave audiences talking about it for months to come. Heretofore known for her impressive acting resume, McCalley firmly establishes herself as a director of note with Ironbound.

Kristin McCalley is just as strong as Susan, working each caustic line to perfection. And she executes Claire Roberts’ cheeky choreography with gleeful abandon.

Fossee and McCalley are stunning as the two teens. Both are only a few years older than the characters they play, but that doesn’t mean they have an easy job fashioning these roles; it takes an artistic maturity rarely seen in actors of any age to make their flesh-and-blood portraits so real. These two don’t “comment” on their characters as more than a few actors do; they present them in their entirety for us to access and assess.

McCalley’s performance as Lydia is ethereal, somehow managing to be both romantic and level-headed at the same time, providing a character who is at once no-nonsense yet utterly sympathetic.
