I got an education from a Nuyorican––right there, I’d never heard the term before. Felix Angel Solis is a revelation––on the Fountain Theatre stage as Eddie, in the Pulitzer Prize-winning, The Cost of Living, where he blew my mind and moved me beyond compare (I immediately set out to track him down), to his thoughts on acting––actors as musicians, the script the sheet music, “actioning,” “referencing,” not giving what they’re looking for, offering something different. Seeking characters who care about something. All explained with fascinating analogies to life. His twice a day meditation practice, where thoughts are encouraged to run and play… adaptive energy, how we let go. New York theatre, the Labyrinth, The Cherry Lane, being directed by Philip Seymour Hoffman, twice. Getting tracked down not just by me, but Pacino, too. Crossing over to film and TV… series regular work on Law & Order, The Good Wife, The Following, NYC22 for Jane Rosenthal and Robert DeNiro; Subway Token Films, his joint production company, whose first film made the Tribeca Film Festival––street level miracles––saying yes to everything, and no to nothing, And yes he said to coming to perform for us at Women Who Write.
As passionate as Felix is In performance is as passionate as I am to watch him do it, on any medium. Warm, humble, spiritual, insightful, resourceful, instinctual, inspiring and delightful, This time, this man, is so rich, I’ll be rewatching this more than once.
Felix Solis is a revelation as an actor and as a human. Mind blown watching him on stage, mind blown sharing this life experience.
