I would like to welcome the following theatres that I will be photographing for the first time this month, in addition to repeat theatres.

Pegasus Theatre, Bordentown

God of Carnage

In this Tony and Olivier Award-winning comedy, two sets of parents meet to discuss how to handle a playground altercation between their sons.  Over the course of the night, tensions rise, biases are revealed, and the parents’ true humanity (or lack thereof) rises to the surface, resulting in what The New York Times called “ninety minutes of laughter that comes from the gut.”

Chatham Playhouse, Chatham 

Inspecting Carol

A Christmas Carol meets The Government Inspector meets Noises Off in this hilarious hit from Seattle. A man who asks to audition at a small theater is mistaken for an informer for the National Endowment for the Arts. Everyone caters to the bewildered wannabe actor, and he is given a role in the current production, A Christmas Carol. Everything goes wrong and hilarity is piled upon hilarity. Perfect anytime, this delight is particularly appropriate at Christmas.

Hudson Theatre Works

Machinal

In October it’s Machinal by Sophie Treadwell.  “Your skin oughtn’t to curl - ought it - when he just comes near you- ought it? That’s wrong, ain’t it? You don’t get over that, do you - ever, do you or do you?” The city. A woman is restless. A woman is suffocating. A woman is silenced. The woman revolts. Inspired by the infamous 1927 Snyder/Gray murder trial, this rarely-performed masterpiece  portrays the hardened soul of America in the Machine Age.  Machinal follows the life of Young Woman who is constrained by a society that favors men and money.

Atlantic City Ballet

Dracula

Premiering in the Fall of 2006, Phyllis Papa's choreography is based on the story of Bram Stoker's Dracula. The story takes place in Eastern Europe when a young lawyer, Jonathan Harker is captured and imprisoned by Dracula. Dracula, inspired by a photograph goes to London to meet Jonathan's fiancée Mina where he drains the life of Mina's best friend Lucy Westenera. Dr. Van Helsing leads a crusade to free Mina and the world from Dracula. Set in the 15th century it has been received by sold out audiences.

Dover Little Theatre

The Play That Goes Wrong

The smash hit The Play That Goes Wrong will be coming to Dover Little Theatre (DLT) . This hilarious play will be co-directed by Larry and Ruthanne Pelham.  The Play That Goes Wrong introduces us to the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society, an amateur theatre troupe which puts on a new production each year.
