Our Next Production Opening September 5

Bluebird by Simon Stephens

Spare, honest, and surprising, each of the scenes in Simon Stephens' Bluebird will leave you "feeling as if you've met a real person rather than a theatrical invention," wrote David Sheward in his Backstage review of the Off-Broadway production. London mini-cab driver Jimmy MacNeill becomes privy to other people's lives and secrets in the time it takes to drive them to their destinations. The stories they share range from sorrowful to sublime, and the tellers from a grieving father to a laid back hooker, from a hilariously offbeat young man to a despairing woman on the prowl. Jimmy drives through the night, getting closer to the core of his silences, to the tragedy of his own life, and to where he goes when there's no one in the back seat of his cab. Bluebird brilliantly displays Stephens' concern with the constant battle between despair and hope that characterizes our lives. Directed by Ken Junkins

Announcing Auditions for The Columnist!


 Originally starring John Lithgow in the 2012 Broadway production at the Manhattan Theater Club, The Columnist is a drama about the press and power, sex and betrayal from the Pulitzer and Tony Award-winning author of Proof, David Auburn. At the height of the Cold War, Joe Alsop is the nation's most influential journalis
t- beloved, feared, and courted by the Washington elite. But as the 60's dawn and America undergoes dizzying change, the intense political dramas Joe is embroiled in become deeply personal as well. Based on the real-life story of Joe Alsop, whose columns at the time of his 1974 retirement were running three times a week in more than three hundred newspapers. The Columnist is a deft blend of history and storytelling, and a powerful portrait of an ideologically complex man. Director Aaron Wexler is looking for 2 men, 1 woman (ages 40-60), 2 Men (ages 20-40), and 1 Woman (ages 18-28). Cold Reading; sides will be provided at the audition.
