Our fifth play of the season, opening in early March,
Amy Herzog’s 4000 Miles.

Boy, do I like this one.

They say March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. The same could be said of the relationship between 21-year old Leo and his 91-year old grandmother, Vera, in this warm-hearted story of two outsiders who help each other find their way in today’s world.

This funny, moving and altogether wonderful drama is a delightful reminder that a keen focus on life’s small moments can pay off in a big way onstage.

A gentle and loving play with a good dose of humor, 4000 Miles is another perfect example of why the DownStage was built. You’ll want to be “in the same room” for this one.

It would be a shame to miss one subtle, revelatory moment.

Lovely, lovely play.

So that’s #5.  #6 will pop up in your email box tomorrow.

Until then…

Best,
Ed


And Then There Were None

UpStage in Rep / Our Last Weekend!
A mysterious host brings an unlikely group of guests to a remote island where, one by one, they start to die. Who’s the killer? Who’s the next victim? Following the success of last summer’s Mousetrap, we thought we’d invite you to enjoy another murderously entertaining whodunit.

Hay Fever

UpStage in Rep / Our Last Weekend!
This classic comedy introduces us to the uber- bohemian Bliss family: the father, a famous writer; the mother, a renowned actress, and two equally eccentric children. Each invites a friend to their summer home where the hosts foist each guest off on a different family member, with alarmingly delightful results.
