Just wanted to let everyone know about the Old Mill's production of SAME TIME, NEXT YEAR opening on 14th January 2000.
For those who need a memory jog, STNY is also a film of the same name starring Alan Alda and Ellen Burstyn...
STNY stars Joe Isaia ('Death of a Salesman'; Finley Award winner for 'NUTS') and Jenny McCann ('A Streetcar Named Desire'; 'When She Danced') and is directed by yours truly.
Rehearsals are well underway and going exceptionally well - these two actors, whilst individually brilliant, are together a complete knockout!
Some of you may remember Joe in his original incarnation of this role of George at 'KADS'. For those people, I think it will be interesting to compare the differences in performance, production and interpretation. Because it is a very different experience. STNY is a very rich script lending itself to many interpretations.
Bookings are open and all the season/booking details are listed in the 'What's On' Section of this site under JANUARY 2000.
I hope to see many familiar faces in the crowd and certainly many new faces as well.
I hope you can all see your way to supporting this production - for 3 main reasons:
1. We are 'competing' with PIAF (though at $10 a ticket, we're *much* better value).
2. It is the dawning of a new era of production at the Old Mill. Featuring video and stills projection, the idea is to incorporate the technology to the aim of creating an historical context/counterpoint to the action on stage. I believe this will be a thrilling part of the overall production.
3. It's going to be a darn fine production. Joe and Jenny will delight beyond measure, the sets and costumes already look fantastic and lighting will be excellent (and that's my humble opinion)!
See you there...
