Calendar Notice for 'Seminar' February 19 – March 12
NEW MILFORD, CONN. (January 8, 2016) – On February 19, TheatreWorks New Milford will debut the contemporary comedy Seminar by Pulitzer Prize-nominee Theresa Rebeck.
In this provocative comedy, four aspiring young novelists sign up for private writing classes with Leonard, an international literary figure. Under his recklessly brilliant and unorthodox instruction, some thrive and others flounder, alliances are made and broken, sex is used as a weapon and hearts are unmoored. The wordplay is not the only thing that turns vicious as innocence collides with experience in this biting comedy that took Broadway by storm.
The production features an outstanding cast of regional actors: Chris Luongo (Poughkeepsie, N.Y.), Anya Caravella and Jim Dietter (both Danbury), and Kevin Sosbe and Reesa Roccapriore (both New Milford).
Seminar is under the direction of Alicia Dempster of Danbury.
Seminar runs February 19,20 26,27 March 4,5,6 11,12. Curtain time is 8:00 p.m. Fridays & Saturdays, with a 2:00 p.m. Sunday matinee on March 6. Tickets for all shows are $23 for reserved seating. Students and Military personnel with ID will be admitted for $18.
