A Creator’s Debut
by Hannah Corneau
Actor Hannah Corneau reflects on a moment of full artistic expression.
One of the most cherished photographs I have of myself performing was a photo taken that evening while singing Carmel Dean’s incredible musical interpretation of Millay’s poem “The Bean-Stalk.” The joy radiating from my face is palpable.
I was free to take up space as a creator.
I often refer back to that photo as validation that I was exactly where I belonged.
Choosing to play Elphaba in Wicked brought me to epic lighting design, trap doors, intricate dresses, large staircases, and the magic of flight.
The stage was bigger, yet I felt smaller.
