Spotlight On: Virginia Bartholomew 

Christopher Borg 


Virginia Bartholomew
Virginia "Ginny" Bartholomew was nominated in 2011 for Outstanding Actress in a Lead Role for her portrayal of the infamous Scottish Queen in Redd Tail Theatre Company's production of Macb*th (in case you are reading this out loud at the theatre). Bartholomew is currently working Off-Broadway with the venerable Pearl Theatre Company, covering several roles in their fall production of Richard II, Shakespeare's exploration of corruption, ambition and greed at a time of enormous political chaos chronicling the shattering fall of one king and the meteoric rise of his rival. Richard II runs through December 24th at City Center.

The hard-working Bartholomew just closed her one-woman tour-de-force, Frankenstein with Mary Shelley, earlier this fall. Also produced by Redd Tale Theatre Company (whose mission is "to provide enlightening, entertaining sci-fi theatrical experiences that contribute to Humanity's next step forward") Frankenstein..., written and performed by Bartholomew, is based on the original text of the novel as well as sources from Mary Shelley's life, including personal writings and opinions of her horror masterpiece. Bartholomew guided audiences on a journey through the story through the voices of Shelley herself as well as the fictional voices of the Captain and even the Creation. Will LeVasseur directed and edited both Redd Tail productions.

Also, watch out for Ms. Bartholomew on the small screen as the "concerned" teacher Ms. Wellington in the LOGO feature film Teens Like Phil and as a wife and mother in That's What She Said starring Anne Heche & Alia Shawkat, which is going to Sundance next year!
