Dear theatre friends,
Just a few days ago, I implored you to join New York Theatre Workshop in order to view Geoff Sobelle’s extraordinary (and Best of Edinburgh Award-winner) “The Object Lesson.” Here’s another reason to do so— 25 Years of “Rent,” a celebration of this “little” musical which began at NYTW, then transferred to Broadway for over a decade. March 2nd-6th.
Tonight only, see Murray Schisgal’s hit “The Typists.” In 1971, it starred real-life couple Anne Jackson and Eli Wallach. It’s been recast! At 7pm– do try it!
London’s Almeida Theatre was preparing to put on “Hymn” when the pandemic struck. They’ve recreated it onstage, and you can buy tickets starting today– hurry, they may sell out! The performances are March 3rd-9th and star the wonderful Adrian Lester.
Our own internationally-minded Play Co. is presenting “Ludic Proxy: Fukushima,” beginning March 6th for very few performances. Originally presented in 2015, this is a memorable story about sisters in post-meltdown Fukushima, Japan.
Another play which I remember well is “Jericho” by Jack Canfora. It was a Critic’s Pick when the 59e59 production was reviewed by The New York Times in 2013, and well worth your time. Performances begin March 5h–you can book tickets for $15, using the code TCNNR1.
Want to see the Award winning musical “The Color Purple”? This production is only on until March 8th, from Curve Theatre in Birmingham, U.K. Enjoy it!
More coming soon– I’ll keep you posted!
Aren’t we fortunate to be living during this plague and not Sophocles’? Or, are you overwhelmed by choice?
Again, if you discover other theatre-related news– please get in touch: Carol@BestofEdinburgh.org.
And, need I reiterate? I’d like to continue to write because so many have expressed their enjoyment of reading– but I must have content!
Please send other theatre related information, or do try to recall a story you’d like me to post.
