'ADAM & EVA MARIE' FINAL PERFORMANCES

After a satisfying, successful two year run, Michael Solomon's heart-breaking
comic drama ADAM & EVA MARIE is closing on November 22 at 7pm. ($15)

During its run, the show garnered rave reviews and was honored with six
Drama-Logue Awards (Writing:Michael Solomon;Performance: Jimmie F. Skaggs,
Jolene Adams, and Leslie Hunt; Direction: Virginia Morris; Production: Jolene Adams
and Douglas Coler). The production benefitted enormously from the energies and talents
of our two original Stage Managers, Lisa Payne and Megan Murphy, with Gary Richmond
stepping in for the final months; and Flo Selfman of Selfman & Others Public Relations
got the word out to the media.

Although Leslie Hunt has played the voice role of LILITH for most of the run, others have
"talked dirty" to Adam as well: Rochell Savitt, Andrea Tate, Christine Kaye, Monique Edwards,
Virginia Morris, and Megan Murphy. The psychologist ADAM and the prostitute EVA MARIE
have been played by Jimmie F. Skaggs and Jolene Adams for the entire run.
If you've never experienced this show, you have only two more chances, and if you have seen
it, come help us say good-bye to two years and two dear friends, ADAM & EVA MARIE.

See the early publicity shots from Adam & Eva Marie.

CATHY LADMAN , ED CRASNICK  VISIT THE PLAYPEN

Comedians Cathy Ladman (The Tonight Show, One Night Stand, Caroline In The City) and Ed Crasnick (Just Shoot Me) are each presenting new shows for our PlayPen development series. (Five measly bucks)
 

Cathy Ladman: SCAREDYPANTS

Mondays, November 16 & 30  8pm

Cathy explores the roots of her timidity in this hilarious and moving work-in-progress.
(Not to give anything away, but doctors, fourth grade compositions, and lunchmeat rituals figure into it)
 
 

CRASNICK VS CRASNICK

Tuesdays, November 17, December 1 & 8, and Sunday December 13  8pm

The courthouse is sweltering. A nervous witness, Ed Crasnick, is on the stand. The DA, Ed Crasnick, grills him
mercilessly. His attorney, Ed Crasnick, objects, and the presiding judge, The Hon. Ed Crasnick, pounds his gavel
in a stern call for order. You're the jury: Will you show mercy?


LINK O THE MONTH : AMERICAN THEATER WEB

Andrew Propst has done the Theatre Community a great service with his
two month old site, American Theatre Web. This is a searchable site, continually
updated, listing virtually every theatrical production in these United States.
(And if the info isn't there yet, it will be...Andrew is a determined man)
Stop in and take a look around. The 'fabulous invalid' still has plenty of life!
