Being a judge . . .
AMI ON Svu:
" I have gotten to play a judge on “Law & Order SVU” for 10 years . . . Judges typically, don't say much . . . it is important . . . that I have created an internal life for this judge."
AMI ON American Son:
"This is the hardest role I have ever played, because it just hits so close to home. I’m a mother. I have three sons . . . sometimes doing all this [acting] can take you to dark places."
Talk about clinics in the art and craft of acting...
"From her opening speechless moments in director Rob Ruggiero's haunting production of "American Son" at TheaterWorks Hartford, Brabson didn't miss a trick or a truth in this emotionally detailed portrayal... Brilliantly calibrated, heartfelt, wrenching work that spared nothing of this woman's anxiety, frustration, fear, anger, helplessness, faith. "
