LOVE IS IN THE AIR
A series of Staged Play Readings about LOVE
As part of its ongoing collaboration with the 1867 Sanctuary at Ewing, the regions newest Center for the Arts, Theater To Go will return on Fridays in February and March for LOVE IS IN THE AIR, a series of 4 staged readings of plays about Love.. Each Friday will bring a different Play, 2 from established playwrights and two by emerging playwrights. The new plays were selected to complement the known plays and it is hoped that audiences will come to all four readings to discuss the similarities and differences in the themes and styles of each play. These staged readings will be directed by Steve Gaissert for Theater To Go and will feature talk backs and refreshments after each performance. All shows begin 8:00 pm. Individual tickets are $12 per show; $40 for the four show series. Purchase tickets at Brown Paper Tickets (http://bpt.me/2728132) or by phone at 1-800-838-3006. The schedule is as follows:
Romantic Comedy Cast
Phoebe Craddock and Jason Carmichael, playwrights who meet and decide to collaborate just as he is getting married. Their relationship produces first a failure and then a string of successes, and their repartée remains sharp and witty as their unrequited interest in each other gathers energy over a nine-year period, until some resolution finally is in sight ROMANTIC COMEDY opened on Broadway in November 1979, and ran for 396 performances.
Lisa and Sebastian were a successful romantic comedy playwriting team, and lovers, whose professional and personal relationship crashed and burned. After several years apart, they are thrown together by a producer to revive a play. As they try to recapture their signature spark, the characters in the play revolt and the line between reality and fantasy disappears. This new comedy will have you laughing in the aisles!
Nick is a single, Italian-American guy from New Jersey. His parents retired and moved to Florida. That doesn't mean his family isn't still in Jersey. In fact, he sees both sets of his grandparents every Sunday for dinner. This is routine until he has to tell them that he's been offered a dream job that would take him away from his beloved, but annoying, grandparents. He tells them. The news doesn't sit so well. Thus begins a series of schemes to keep Nick around.
Mildred and Arthur are on a quest to marry off their son Peter. With a plan up their sleeves and the help of many lawn ornaments, Peter’s parents are on the offensive. But Peter has different plans and some difficult decisions to make. And then there’s Sarah, Peter’s on-again, off-again girlfriend. It’s a play about loving relationships, the ups and downs of life, and creating landscapes of meaningful memories!
Theater To Go was started in 1992 and has been providing quality entertainment in NJ and regionally since then. It is best known for audience participation murder mysteries and other interactive comedy theater however has expanded to include full length plays and staged readings.
Our Interactive shows have been performed regionally and around the United States for many corporate events and our shows have been excellent activities for corporate team building and holiday parties. In addition Theater To Go has performed at many fundraisers, private parties and public events. The interactive nature of these shows allows the audiences to play along with the actors. We believe that whereas most adults stop playing in adolescence, actors play all their lives, and we invite you to join us in the playground!
Theater To Go has added audience participation Movie Sing Alongs/Play Alongs where the audience is invited to join in as we all view the movie and engage in guided activities. The audience is invited to come in costume, everyone receives a “goody bag” containing participation props, and Guided by our MC the audience gets right into the action of these classic movies. Recent events included Grease, The Wizard of Oz, Mary Poppins, Annie, Mamma Mia and the wildly popular Frozen.
