16th Street's Last Production
|Come to the Theater to see 16th Street Theater's last production for year 2010. |
This weekend is an exciting one in Berwyn with Menorca opening at 16th Street and Oktoberfest happening in the Depot District. We have shows this Wed, Thurs (sold out) and Saturday (VIP Night). So we make it easy for you to attend Oktoberfest AND see Menorca. In fact, Buzz Kilman (who you saw playing the harmonica and wandering the streets as a hobo in THIS TRAIN at Steppenwolf ) will be rockin' Berwyn's Oktoberfest Saturday night. And that makes me very happy.
So after a weekend of previews, script changes, going back into rehearsal, and a final preview tomorrow (Wednesday) at 7:30, we are opening Robert Koon's Menorca this Thursday September 16. Menorca is the most ambitious show we have premiered at 16th Street. The process has been exhilarating, frightening, exhausting, and very rewarding! Last night, working in the room with the playwright and the actors, finessing moments, making magic, collaborating, was such a joy for me. Thanks to those of you in the audience this past weekend who were part of discovering a new play for the first time. Your energy and feedback was so helpful.
Now it's time to celebrate and share it with you! Remember this Saturday is our VIP night at 8:30 PM with yummy appetizers and drinks after the show provided by our friends at Oak Park's Maya del Sol. Tickets are just $16. You are invited because you make the theater live. Pomada time!
