TEATRO LA QUINDICINA SEASON 2018
It’s hard to believe we’re already on the point of beginning our third season in the newly rebuilt Varscona Theatre. Our gorgeously revitalized building feels more like home than ever, both for our ensemble and our subscribers. Audiences have loved watching our adventures on the capacious new Varscona stage, with its expanded depth, breadth, and height finally matching the scope of the Teatro imagination. Our sumptuous 2018 season sees the revels continue apace with 4 scintillating productions, two of which are world premieres. As usual, all Teatro’s best known players will be out in glamorously full force, with some arresting new faces in the mix as well. It’s a party you don’t want to miss!
What would a Teatro season be without a madcap screwball comedy? Really, it’s a question that’ll probably never get an answer, and we suspect you’re fine with that. Not seen since 2003, this Lemoine caper is set in the world of magazine publishing in 1950s Manhattan. A famous literary hoax begets a further series of deceptions, misunderstandings, and outright lies, until things come to a head in the smallest hotel room in New York. Andrew MacDonald-Smith presides as the chief provocateur in a cast which also includes Kendra Connor, Andrea House, Paula Humby, Louise Lambert, and Ron Pederson.
On Sunday, October 14 at 7:30pm join us at the Varscona for our grand finale,Bring Down the Curtain: An Evening of Grand Finales! This delightful concert will feature renowned musical numbers and scenes and speeches that bring down the curtain at either intermission or conclusion of their show. Memorable numbers like Climb Every Mountain, and Everything's Coming Up Roses (act one close of The Sound of Music and Gypsy respectively), Tom Wingfield's famous farewell to his past in The Glass Menagerie ("blow out your candles, Laura..."), and closing lines you may never have realized come from the most distinguished of plays and motion pictures.
Bring Down the Curtain: An Evening of Grand Finales! will feature host Jeff Haslam and the company of Skirts on Fire, as well as a whole season's worth of Teatro stars. Look for more delightful details in your inbox next week.
