Becoming Seaweed, by Charleston Stage Resident Actor Ira Lindberg Harris

Filed under: Back Stage Blog — julianw @ 8:14 am

Seaweed J. Stubbs actually reminds me of myself in high school. Energetic, fun, crazy, wild, loving, suave, popular, well diverse and the “Ladies Man”. Yes, that was a little over five years ago, so I tried to channel back to the past as much as I could. So trying to find my character wasn’t as hard as trying to find my character’s singing voice.

Seaweed’s character is color blind in every way and doesn’t understand why some people can’t move on from racial matters. Luckily growing up in my day in time, I didn’t have to go through what all Seaweed went through. But still to this day racial issues occur be it ethnicity, religion, sexuality and even weight. And all of us have experienced and or have seen one of these in our time. Playing this role has been one of the biggest journeys in my life, and I love it!
