Glee Club details
GLEE CLUB Returns!
We'll be running for five weeks, beginning March 3rd, 2010, at the Access Theater, produced by Blue Coyote Theater Group.
Our cast is largely the same as it was at the Brick last summer: Stephen Speights, Tom Staggs, Bruce Barton, David DelGrosso, Matthew Trumbull, Bob Buckwalter and Carter Jackson. Gary Shrader, who kicked ass as "Paul" in the original production, has unfortunately found himself unable to perform the role in our remount. Performing the role in his stead will be Steve Burns.
Kyle Ancowitz, perpetual partner-in-crime, directs.
Designing Glee Club are Robert Monaco (set design), Wheeler Kincaid (lighting design) and Jonna McElrath (costume design).
You can read our press release on Playbill here.
We also got this very strange write-up on the Joyride Blog at Time Out. It will likely be the only time a play of mine is sold to parents. But you know what? We welcome any and all that want to see the production, for whatever reason they choose!
There's lots more information to come, and I'll be certainly filling this blog with it as we approach opening. I'll let you know when tickets go on sale, if we'll be offering special discounts, and all that fun stuff!
