“To be part of a repertory theatre, you have to remain active and focused on each of the productions because there’s a lot of change—changing skins, changing voices, and changing actors. You have to prepare yourself psychologically and physically in order to achieve a truthful and relaxed delivery.” – Zulema Clares
As actress Zulema Clares prepares to go on as the titular role in “Filomena Marturano: Un Matrimonio a la Caribeña” at Repertorio Español, she shares her preparation process, thoughts on connecting to a New York audience in another language, and her hope for the change that theatre can bring to an audience.
