A Reunion Reading of Soho Reps 2013 Production of

featuring Marin

Thu, Aug 5, 2021, 7:00 PM –

Mon, Aug 9, 2021, 11:59 PM EDT

August 5th 7pm.est (On-Demand til August 9th)

Directed by Rebecca Taichman (Tony Winner Indecent)

To Benefit Cultural Solidarity Fund

 

Play-PerView presents a reunion reading of Soho Rep's 2013 production of David Adjmi's "Marie Antoniette" starring Tony nominee Marin Ireland under the direction of Tony Winner Rebecca Taichman who directs for streaming.

 

In David Adjmi’s contemporary take on the young queen of France, Marie is a confection created by a society that values extravagance and artifice. But France’s love affair with the royals sours as revolution brews, and for Marie, the political suddenly becomes very personal. From the light and breezy banter at the palace to the surging chants of “Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité!” in the streets, Marie Antoinette holds a mirror up to our contemporary society that might just be entertaining itself to death.

THE CORDELIA DREAM

A Performance on Screen

Irish Repertory Theatre
In association with Bonnie Timmermann
Presents 
The Cordelia Dream

By Marina Carr
Directed by Joe O’Byrne

Starring Stephen Brennan and Danielle Ryan

Filmed at The New Theatre, Dublin

July 27 – August 8, 2021*

Please note all performances take place in Eastern Time.

In a response to one of Shakespeare’s greatest tragedies, the North American premiere of Marina Carr’s play comes to life on screen with the mysterious and tense confrontation of woman and man. When Woman, haunted by her dream of Cordelia and King Lear, confronts Man, their disturbed relationship is exposed. As his protege, she has come seeking enlightenment, but he orders silence in exchange for artistry and concession. 

Fast forward five years, and she returns again for one final visit. Will the two be able to see eye to eye? Or will the meeting lead to mutually assured destruction? The Cordelia Dream continues to cement Marina Carr’s status as one of Ireland’s most acclaimed living playwrights with her deep insight into the complex nature of families and how we handle the darkness within.

Irish Rep is proud to present the North American premiere of The Cordelia Dream by Marina Carr, one of Ireland’s most acclaimed living playwrights. Carr is the author of more than 20 published plays, and has won numerous awards, including The Irish Times’ playwright award. The Cordelia Dream was commissioned by The Royal Shakespeare Company and closed their 2008 season at Wilton’s Music Hall in London. A rehearsed reading was produced in November 2020 in Cork’s Everyman Theatre.

Ann Harada, Josh Hamilton, More Cast in Lisa Loeb's Virtual Mini-Musicals Together Apart

 

The ten musicals, composed by Loeb and her fellow Brown University alums, will stream to benefit The Actors Fund.

Together Apart, 10 mini-musicals about connecting on Zoom at the beginning of the pandemic—written, directed, and starring Brown University alumni—will stream on Broadway on Demand beginning August 6 to benefit The Actors Fund.

Conceived by and featuring Grammy winner Lisa Loeb, the cast also includes Emmy winner Julie Bowen (Modern Family), Emmy winner Josh Hamilton (13 Reasons Why), Ann Harada (Avenue Q), and JoBeth Williams (Kramer vs. Kramer).

Together Apart evolved out of a Brown Musical Theatre class reunion on Zoom held during the pandemic attended by graduates from the early '80s through the late '90s. The seven-minute musicals are interspersed with short pieces by Eric Kirchberger, who will play Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Loeb says, “As I sat in the Zoom reunion, listening to everyone talk about their current lives, connecting with friends, and reflecting on all of our vivid musical theatre memories from Brown, I realized that we shouldn’t just talk about what happened in the past, but we should write a Zoom musical about what’s going on, and it should happen all in the world of Zoom. And by sharing our storytelling and our passion and love for theatre, we can work together to provide an outlet for our shared creativity while giving back to this incredible cause.”

The mini-musicals include How Can I Connect?, It’s Okay Mom, The New Normal, Find The Music, Red State/Blue State, Teaching Online, Breathe, Care and Feeding, Family Game Night, and La Dolce Jersey.

New Normal Rep Presents Virtual Nikkole Salter's Lines in the Dust through August 8

 

Awoye Timpo directs the examination of politics in the American educational system.

The new streaming theatre company New Normal Rep continues its inaugural season with a production of Nikkole Salter's play Lines in the Dust, on demand July 8–August 8.

The story is set in 2010 in Essex County, New Jersey, and centers on a mother fighting for the best education for her daughter after losing a charter school lottery. Awoye Timpo directs a cast that includes Jeffrey Bean (Amadeus), Melissa Joyner, and Lisa Rosetta Strum.

"This play is about belonging. Who belongs where, and who has access? I was inspired by the intersection between the institution of education, the role that it plays in the American Dream, segregation, housing, and economic mobility. All of these issues are a part of the American conversation, yet have not made it to the forefront of our storytelling. We all need to challenge ourselves and recognize our own roles in these long-standing dynamics," Salter said in a statement. "What would it look like to invest in every child as if every child could be the steward of your future?"

The production features costume design by Qween Jean, muti-media design by Afsoon Pajoufar, sound design by Stan Mathabane, and original music by Alphonso Horne.

New Normal Rep, under the artistic direction of Jack Canfora, will close the season with a stream of F.I.R.E. by Julia Blauvelt later this fall. Dates and casting are to be announced.
