In describing performing artist Bethany Bereman’s creative gifts, fellow artists frequently drew on images of fire and light.
“The gift she brought was this feeling of energy zooming off her, like lightning,” said Theater in the Rough’s Aaron Elmore. “She was not a pillar, she was more like a fire, a rocket, going and doing and adventuring and singing and living.”
“She had a ton of presence,” said Perseverance Theatre’s Art Rotch. “She was very beautiful on stage, a luminous performer.”
“She was a firecracker,” said friend and fellow artist Maria Gladziszewski.
