WHAT'S IN A NAME Opens April 12 at the Chain Theatre
Thrilled to announce that WHAT'S IN A NAME, in its new, fully fleshed-out full-length form, will open April 12 at the Chain Theatre, produced by my beloved Variations Theatre Group. Greg Cicchino directs a cast that includes Marie Deasy, Lenny Thomas, Lauren Roth, and Sutton Crawford.
The Chain is at 21-28 45th Street in the mighty LIC. We open April 12th at 8 pm and run the 13, 17, 18, 19, 20, 24, 25, 26, 27 at 8 with matinees on April 14 and 21 at 2.
The story thus far...
The play takes place in the back of a bar. A well-dressed woman, barely awake and laden with bags, stumbles in. Confronted by the past, the present, and the police, she sees for the first time the results of the choices she made so many years ago and finds that the secrets that are hardest to keep are hardest to tell. Does she trash her present to rectify her past, or does she double-down on a life she can no longer lead but can’t escape from?
What's In A Name, which was a Critics' Choice winner at the 1994 Samuel French Off-Off Broadway Short Play Festival, emerged from a long hibernation at this year's Bococa Arts Festival in Brooklyn. The run was a huge success, both artistically and commercially.
