” W O N D E R F U L ” exclaims Tony & Grammy Award Winning Irish playwright and screenwriter Enda Walsh to Aaralyn as she is blocking for her performance as Girl in BALLYTURK . This night is critics preview night, which earned in the New York Times a featured “Top Five” shows to see in January 2018. Ross at Times Square Chronicles writes Aaralyn’s final visual is so wrought with such a complexity of ideas while being, most importantly, solid and devastating in its emotional attachment.
It has been such an honor and very rewarding for Aaralyn indeed to mature further in her the art of theater performance under Enda’s direction!
Aaralyn is inspired by stage performers such as Cristin Milioti, “like Aaralyn” who is originally from South Jersey just mins from her home! In fact, Enda spoke highly of working with Cristin and mentioned Aaralyn’s accent, energy and stage presence even reminds him of her!
There are many others’ stories who Aaralyn draws encouragement from such as Daisy Eagan, who at 11 was the youngest girl ever to win a Tony, for “The Secret Garden,” who has since acted alot in Television.
Aaralyn loves to perform off-Broadway audiences and gets the greatest thrill to later be asked for her autograph at the stage door! Then still being able to play as a child she also enjoys the more simpler chance to return to her regular life to enjoy pizza/game night with family and friends.
Such natural balance she finds between her expressions of artistry; Stage, Television, Film and also recently VoiceOver are all fun forms of story telling she loves to perform. Live performance takes the cake she tells everyone. She actively plans to see every Broadway show she can and loves the live performance experience both on stage and seated in the audience!
