A Sight for Sore Eyes

Erin Anderson, Nancy Bell, Andrew Borba and Gregory Sims.
Sight Unseen, which premiered here 20 years ago, is coming home, and bringing with it both familiar faces and new friends to meet the SCR family.

Erin Anderson has done television stints as a nurse on “Strong Medicine”  and a hooker on “Criminal Minds,” and now she’ll make her SCR debut as journalist Grete, who gives Waxman the toughest interview of his life.

Though she plays Waxman’s muse and one-time lover Patricia this time around, last time SCR audiences saw Nancy Bell, she was hamming it up as Belinda Blair in Noises Off.

Andrew Borba hasn’t stayed away for too long—he graced the SCR stage last season as Dr. Givings in In the Next Room or the vibrator play. This season, he’ll appear as Patricia’s husband, Nick.

Gregory Sims will make his SCR debut as celebrity artist Jonathan Waxman, though moviegoers may recognize him from last year’s hit Real Steel, starring Hugh Jackman.

Meet Nancy Bell and Gregory Sims, along with director and SCR Founding Artistic Director David Emmes, at a free seminar Thursday, March 1, at 7 p.m. on the Julianne Argyros Stage.

Sight Unseen runs March 11 – April 1.
