Ryan Hall will be returning to the 2nd Act Players’ stage this fall to play Tony the cop in Old Ringers. Tony is a man trying to change his image who finds his past is still following him despite his best efforts.
The show marks Hall’s third appearance on the 2nd Act Players’ stage. He holds the distinction of playing a character based on 2nd Act Players’ Cofounder John N. Frank as well as a character based on frank’s father, Sal in two different plays written by Frank.
Read about Hall’s Old Ringers’ character Tony below:
1. What is your character’s most memorable characteristic?
The way that he wants to change and not be the guy who rushes into relationships and sex. He’s trying to be a good guy for the first time in a long time…and hopefully his abs.
2. What are you drawing on in your own life to play this character?
When you find the right person and you want to hang onto them.
3. Will audiences leave the show loving or hating your character and why?
People will like Tony because they’ll see that he is not the same guy that is described throughout the play by Rose. He has grown and matured over the course of the years.
Old Ringers will be performed Nov. 2-17, Saturday nights at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m. at the Logan Hall Theater at Northminster Presbyterian Church, 2515 Central Park Avenue, Evanston. For tickets, click here.
