Knowest thou Yoda
Speakest but only haikus
During the show whole?
We thought it was nifty – and so does Joanne, our Yoda extraordinaire.
Joanne Wood (Yoda) was raised in the ways of the force thanks to her brothers Jim and John and her cousins Pete and Mike, and has had Star Wars as a part of her life since before she can remember. As for Shakespeare it’s been a love affair since she first read A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the age of 10. She is so excited to join The Opposite of People in this marriage of two of her greatest loves. Playing Yoda is especially an honor and a privilege that she is beyond excited for. She’d like to thank everyone involved in this project for their hard work, all the awesome Star Wars fans that have come out to see this crazy performance, and of course her mother and the rest of the Jedi Counsel for their endless support.
