NEW photoshoot and interview of Taylor Schilling for Imagista Magazine
Taylor Schilling first grabbed our attention with her role as “Piper” on the hit Netflix series, Orange Is the New Black. But the actress, who was nominated for a Golden Globe award for the role, is so much more than that. We caught up with the busy actress as she navigates being creative in the time of pandemic.
Imagista: Hello Taylor. How are you keeping at this curious point in history?
Taylor: With lots of practice, I have become quite adept at living by life day by day. The ‘one day at a time’ practice is always very useful to me, but has proven to be even more vital now. Just as much as sleep or water. I’ve also gotten more involved in my own community, and spent time focusing on my interests outside of acting.

Taylor Schilling scheduled for ‘The Madness of Hercules’ on February 18
From Penn State Wilkes-Barre
Hercules is coming to Pennsylvania in a rendition of a Theater of War production that gained attention during its run in New York City in 2016. Now, you can join Penn State Wilkes-Barre in viewing a staged reading of “Madness of Hercules,” designed to guide the community in understanding and responding to acts of gun violence. This virtual event is open to the public and free to view with registration.
Translated and directed by Bryan Doerries, “Madness of Hercules” tells the story of the famed Greek demigod as he returns home to the city of Thebes, only to find that his home is being occupied by a local tyrant. With his invincible bow, Hercules takes on the task of freeing his family. However, in the heat of battle, Hercules loses sight of the true enemy, taking the lives of everyone in sight, including those of his wife and children. After realizing what he has done, Hercules finds support from his friend and fellow war veteran, Theseus, who encourages Hercules to share the weight of what he has done with the community.
Telling the tale of Hercules will be David Denman (The Office), Frankie Faison (The Wire), Taylor Schilling (Orange Is the New Black), Jumaane Williams (New York City Public Advocate) and Nyasha Hatendi (The Front Runner and Casual).
“Madness of Hercules” will be held virtually from 7 to 9 p.m. Feb. 18. To learn more about Theater of War Productions, visit https://theaterofwar.com/about.
