Van Joins the Cast Of "The Unveiling"
(L to R) James Ryan Caldwell, Elliotte Crowell, Van Hansis

The last weekend in February, the VanHansis.net team attended “The Unveiling” at Dixon Place in New York City. The play was written by James Ryan Caldwell , directed by Anna Brenner, and produced by Joel Glassman. It is set in upstate New York in the year 1919. The eccentric and reclusive artist Florine Stettheimer (Tina Mitchell) and her sisters, Ettie (Elisa Matula) and Carrie (Megan Hill), host a soiree for their bohemian, artist friends to unveil Florine’s latest painting. Van plays Gaston Lachaise, a French born American sculptor. Gaston spends most of his time discussing his obsession with rotund female figures as well as his admiration for his wife (who is clearly not rotund), Isabel Lachaise (Elliotte Crowell). Isabel is introduced as a somewhat ditzy, but sweet, woman who idolizes her husband and seems content to daydream, to sing to herself, to drink copious amounts of spiked punch, and to discuss her flower garden. Elliotte is hilarious in this role. The audience laughed out loud many times as she delivered her lines. In addition, we loved seeing Van adopt the French accent and the artistic affectations of Gaston Lachaise. The banter and flirtation between Gaston and Isabel were some of the funniest moments in the play. Toward the end of the play, however, there is an intense and uncomfortable scene between them that makes it clear that Isabel is much smarter than she appears.

Seeing the Unveiling made our entire team even more excited for Van’s upcoming web series, Ms. Guidance. James Ryan Caldwell is the co-creator of the series, and Elliotte Crowell plays the central character, Jenny Bump. Elliotte is an incredibly talented actress, and the on stage chemistry between Van and her is off the charts. In addition, James Ryan Caldwell’s writing is smart and darkly comedic with a touch of the absurd. In our opinion, Van’s fans are in for a treat when Ms. Guidance hits our screens.
