Time For An Exit Strategy

Nov 9, 2019 10:33 AM

As a young girl, Sandra Roth Schoenbart (aka Sandra K) often asked herself one burning question: “Could the daughter of a Jewish accountant from Queens, ever become an actress?”

In her mind, the short answer was no. Then last January, the Water Mill resident took Allen O’Reilly’s Everybody Can Act!” class at Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor. Acting had long been Schoenbart’s first love, so O’Reilly took his budding theatrical student under his wing and helped her develop “Exit Strategy,” a one-woman show which made its debut in June at the Southampton Cultural Center (SCC).

Now, Schoenbart is coming back to SAC — this time with “Exit Strategy 2: An Evening with Sandra K” — on Saturday, November 23, at 7 p.m. In this new show Schoenbart will reflect on her childhood in Queens, her transition to a life on stage, and special mentions of her love for animals, yoga, and the great outdoors. Along the way, she will present monologues from “The Sisters Rosensweig” by Wendy Wasserstein, “A Mother’s Love” by Craig Pospisil, “The Vagina Monologues” by Eve Ensler, “House of Blue Leaves” by John Guare and the “Canterbury Tales” by Geoffrey Chaucer — in Middle English, no less.

Tickets for “Exit Strategy 2: An Evening with Sandra K” are $20 ($10 students under 21). To reserve, call 631-287-4377 or visit scc-arts.org. The Southampton Cultural Center is located at 25 Pond Lane in Southampton.
