Meet the Nowak family, who lives amidst the east side urban rubble of Buffalo, New York. Clara, the family matriarch, runs her soup kitchen and tends to the 20-foot shrine to the Blessed Mother - which adjoins the house - commemorating the 1942 visit from the Blessed Virgin Mary in her father's barber shop. Daughter Ruth announces her plan to "go public" with the family miracle by creating a one-woman play about the sacred event, and a deathbed confession causes the family legend to unravel, shaking the family's faith to its core.
Featuring Kara Cantrell, Kelly Criss, Tony Larkin, and Susan Shalhoub Larkin, the show is directed by Dina Shadwell. The production/design team includes Rial Ellsworth (Sound Design), Jane Kroessig (Costume Design), John David Williams (Lighting Design), Chuck Welcome (Scenic Design), and Hampton Whatley (Production Manager). The show is Stage Managed by Renee Jamieson.
Dina Shadwell, in the director's chair at Stage Door for the first time after appearing on stage in last season's Out of Order, is the recipient of the 2008 Metropolitan Atlanta Theatre Award for Best Director. Dina has worked at various theaters as an actor, director, producer, puppeteer, casting director, and teacher, but she is particularly proud of her 13 seasons directing Jerry's Habima Theatre, for which she received the Vital Service Award from the Atlanta Alliance on Developmental Disabilities.
Tickets start at $27 and are available online at www.stagedoorplayers.net or by calling the box office at (770) 396-1726. Senior, student and youth discounts are available.
