Dear theatre friend,
Summer’s rapidly coming to a close, but before it does– here’s another nudge to see a terrific play, performed live from the Old Vic, Bristol, beginning today at 2:30, NY time. Don’t miss– only four performances!
Perhaps you remember the film “Bagdad Cafe?” If not, you have a chance to see Emma Rice’s (“The Flying Lovers of Vitebsk”) . Buy tickets now— it’s the latest of the Old Vic’s In Camera presentations.
Another gem, “Detroit ’67” by Dominique Morisseau, is streaming until September 16th, from the DC Signature Theatre. It takes place during the tumultuous riots there, enhanced by Motown sounds of its time
There’s a two week presentation of “Angela’s Ashes” the Musical, you can stream from NY’s Irish Rep. If it’s half as wonderful as Frank McCourt’s autobiographical novel– it will be a treat! Opening night is September 9th.
While on the Irish Rep site, you might also be interested in “George M. Cohan Tonight!,” written by Chip Deffaa and starring Jon Peterson. It streams until August 29th.
If you’re now back in NY, do venture forth to The Atlantic Theater, to see a LIVE performance of “The Last of the Love Letters” by 2020 Steinberg Award Winner, Ngozi Anyanwu.
Lastly, unless circumstances change, the epic “The Lehman Trilogy” is coming to Broadway. Previews should begin September 25th– an event to anticipate!
I hope the next newsletter I write will be chock full of plays for us to see in theatres. I also hope to be sitting next to you!
I’ll return soon, whenever I find plays that we’ll want to see– even if still on screen.
