*Online Premiere* Set in the New York theatre world, a woman's role in an Off-Broadway play becomes strangely interconnected with her personal life. Jaclyn Bethany directs and stars in “The Rehearsal,” a rich, patient drama full of well-observed personal and professional struggles. Three weeks into a rigorous rehearsal process, a young actress named Anne struggles to find her character in all of its power and authenticity. Off stage is even messier. Married to an older man with a 14 year old daughter and bitter ex-wife, Anne is bombarded with animosity and distrust from all angles. The six part series (which can be viewed in one complete piece here) fills in with a terrific ensemble cast, all lived-in and suitably combustable for all the New York City stakes and ambition they’ve thrust onto their lives. Bethany herself has quickly established herself as an ambitious up-and-coming talent, a scrappy force capable of various styles and formats. (see also: “Sunday Tide”).
