Project Description

Suzanne Bouchard

Suzanne Bouchard (Joan Didion) Suzanne recently worked on The Last Act, a new musical written by her dear college chum, Michael Thomas, in which she played an aging, self-absorbed, delusional actress. This is now the fourth such role to come her way in the past decade, though reasons remain unclear. Over the past thirty-five years, her favorite roles include Billy Dawn in Born Yesterday (Intiman Theatre), Karen Knightly in Revengers’ Comedy (ACT), Henrietta in Smash (Intiman Theatre), Lina in Misalliance (Seattle Repertory Theatre), Charlotte in A Little Night Music (The 5th Avenue Theatre), Helen Lawson, Miriam in Valley of the Dolls (Empty Space Theatre), Deborah in A Kind of Alaska (Shadow and Light), Elizabeth Bishop in Dear Elizabeth (Seattle Repertory) and Mrs. Alving in Ghosts (ArtsWest). She is glad to work again with Victor Pappas, enjoying a trust and affection has grown now twenty-five years.
