Necessary Targets., by Eve Ensler. Maria is of a rare breed among high school actors. She has none of the affected, flamboyant acting habits of so many young people. Her work is simple, direct, and unencumbered by the "look-at-me" ostentation. I find her very open to direction and also very attuned to working on her craft.
Maria is also very smart, a quality that can't be underestimated in actors - so long as it's coupled with talent. In her case, it is. Maria could act professionally if she so chose, not just "one day," but now. Doubtless she has much to learn, as any adolescent would, but if she chooses to fully pursue her interest in the performing arts, a career awaits. I believe her to be among that "most likely to succeed" echelon, no matter her chosen field."
