New Theatre announces its 25th Anniversary Season

2010 – 2011.

altNew Theatre’s 25th Anniversary season continues to fulfill our mission “to produce vibrant theatre that stimulates, provokes, challenges, and entertains by cultivating ‘New Voices- New Works and the Classics'” while bringing to life its theme for this season “overcoming adversity”.

Following its successful 2010 – 2011 Season, New Theatre kicks off its 2010-2011 season with a limited engagement of one of the Bard’s romantic comedies, The Tempest (September 2nd – September 19th, 2010) adapted and directed by guest artist John Manzelli. Stranded on a deserted island with his daughter, a usurped duke is granted his chance at revenge. By invoking a storm, he shipwrecks the man who ruined him. Also among the passengers is the young man who awakens his daughter’s first stirrings of love.

The season then moves to the Southeastern premiere of the critically acclaimed Broadway play, Jack Goes Boating by Bob Glaudini (October 8th – 31st, 2010). Laced with cooking classes, swimming lessons and a smorgasbord of illegal drugs, Jack Goes Boating is a touching and warmhearted play about learning how to stay afloat in the deep water of day-to-day living where date panic, marital meltdown, betrayal, and the prevailing grace of the human spirit abound.

The end of 2010 brings the Southeastern premiere of Fizz by Rogelio Martinez (November 19th – December 12th, 2010). Gun-toting Southern belles, cocaine-loving Rockettes, and insane soda execs all take part in this based-on-a-true-story comedy about one of history’s biggest flops – the creation of New Coke.

The beginning of 2011 brings a play to be announced (January 28th – February 20th, 2011) which will be announced pending the securing of the production rights from the playwright’s agent. Next will be the World Premiere The Radiant (March 25th – April 17th, 2011) by Tony nominated and playwright for New Theatre’s 2005 World Premiere production of Clarence Darrow’s Last Trial, Shirley Lauro. Developed at the prestigious Actors Studio in New York City and recipient of a 2008 EST/Sloan Foundation Commission, The Radiant is about the tempestuous, dramatic life of Marie Curie, one of the world’s first recognized woman scientists, whose discovery and isolation of radium earned her two Nobel Prizes and revolutionized science forever, as she ushered in “The Atomic Age” and the first cure for cancer.

New Theatre closes its season honoring the classics with Tennessee William’s A Streetcar Named Desire (May 20th – June 12th, 2011). This modern classic follows the decline of a fading Southern belle and the sexy, beer-chugging barbarian responsible for her tragic fall. In addition, the season contains one more play which will run October 8th – 31st, 2010 which will be announced pending the securing of the production rights from the playwright’s agent.

All performances take place Thursdays – Saturdays 8:00 p.m. and Sundays at 1 p.m. Additional Sunday performances at 5:30 p.m. on select Sundays.
