The Story of Aphrodite: Meet Whitney Green

Where are you from?
Detroit, Michigan

What do you do when you're not performing?
Intern/assistant teacher with Emerald City Theatre School, and bartending at Uberstein.

What is your favorite moment in The Love of the Nightingale?
I have so many favorite moments of the show its hard to pick. One I especially love is the in the beginning when the soldiers enter and fight. The atmosphere on stage is so energized and exciting, our cast of twenty feels like a hundred. I know the audience feeds on the energy and anticipate the powerful things to come.

Any standout rehearsal moments?
I really enjoy the artistic visions of everyone working on the show, and watching how they collaborate and bring their ideas together. I'm very excited to continue work and be part of the final product.

What's a fun fact about your character?
In Greek mythology, Aphrodite is the goddess of love, but her love for Hippolytus was not returned, so she used her power to destroy him. Although it is a small part in the play within the play, it serves as a reminder of the disastrous effects of trying to force love and covet a person's affection. Just like Phaedra (in the play within) andTereus with Philomele.
