Sam Bass Community Theatre
2/8-3/2/2013
A thunderstorma€¦ In a windswept country house a family of failures wrangles over a will: a detective who has never solved a case; a writer, an artist and a composer whose works have never been published, shown or performed, and a dysfunctional teenager. These are the prime ingredients for a murder mysterya€¦ but this diversion is by British Master of Comedy Alan Ayckbourne and it has a number of surprises. The victim is not who it should be and the thrills are leavened with tongue in cheek humor and ironic commenta€¦. And one more twist: The murderer changes with every performance!

Sam Bass Community Theatre
2/8-3/2/2013
"It Could Be Any One of Us" by Sir Alan Ayckbourn opens February 8th at Sam Bass Community Theatre. Directed by Frank Benge. The comedy who-done-it that is who did it tonight! In a remote and dilapidated country house, three siblings share an antagonistic life together. All are artists who have failed to live up to their own, let alone anyone else's, expectations. The older brother Mortimer is a composer who has never realized his youthful potential, his sister Jocelyn is a writer of thrillers who has never completed a novel and Brinton is a painter, who does not even let his family see his work. When Jocelyn's partner, Norris - an insurance investigator with aspirations to be a real detective - arrives home and interrupts a recital by Mortimer, a row breaks out in which Mortimer reveals he intends to disinherit the family and give the house to a former student, Wendy Jones. When Wendy arrives, a murder takes place and the murderer is… well, that's where it gets a bit tricky… because it changes every night. From the comedic genius of Sir Alan Ayckbourn (Absurd Person Singular, How the Other Half Loves, The Norman Conquests) comes the comedy murder mystery "It Could Be Any One of Us". But this isn't your ordinary murder mystery… this one contains a twist in the style of "Clue"; there are three possible murderers and the murderer changes with every performance during a card game played on-stage. So, it's possible to see the show three times and never have the same person revealed to have done the dastardly deed! The cast features William Parcher as Mortimer Chalke, Joe David as Norris Honeywell, Lynn S. Beaver as Jocelyn Chalke, Jeff Mulligan as Brinton Chalke, Linda Myers as Wendy Windwood and Kelly Hamilton as Amy Chalke. This production is directed by Frank Benge (Harold & Maude, The Women, All in the Timing) Presented by Sam Bass Community Theatre Dates: February 8, 2013 - March 2, 2013 Times: Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays 8:00 pm, Sundays 2:00 pm Sam Bass Community Theatre, 600 N.

Now Playing Onstage in Austin - Week of 2/24/2013 THE JOFFREY BALLET: RITE OF SPRING
Bass Concert Hall
3/5-3/6/2013
Made possible by a generous grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, with additional support from the Dean of the College of Fine Arts and the Executive Vice President and Provost of The University of Texas at Austin Presented in partnership with the Butler School of Music and the Department of Theatre and Dance The University of Texas Symphony Orchestra joins the world famous Joffrey Ballet for a spectacular evening of classical dance and music, highlighted by a performance of Le Sacre du Printemps ( The Rite of Spring ), celebrating the centennial of the work's world premiere in Paris in 1913. The Joffrey Ballet's Rite of Spring explores Stravinsky's revolutionary score and Nijinsky's radical choreography with a remarkable reconstruction of the 1913 production with original costumes, choreography, and design. The Joffrey Ballet, now with a permanent residence in Chicago, has been hailed as "America's Company of Firsts." The namesake of the late Robert Joffrey, The Joffrey Ballet has a long list of "firsts" including the first dance company to perform at the White House at Jacqueline Kennedy's invitation, the first to appear on television, the first American company to visit Russia, the first classical dance company to go multi-media, the first to commission a rock 'n' roll ballet, the first and only dance company to appear on the cover of Time magazine, and the first company to be the subject of a major motion picture, Robert Altman's The Company. Don't miss this opportunity to see, first hand, why this 100 year-old masterpiece continues to have such a radiating influence on contemporary art, culture, and aesthetics. "One had to applaud the impeccable continuity and dynamic logic of Nijinsky's choreography. One had to be grateful to Joffrey for taking us on this fascinating trip through a dark time tunnel." LOS ANGELES TIMES

Now Playing Onstage in Austin - Week of 2/24/2013 INTIMATE APPAREL
Oscar G. Brockett Theatre
3/1-3/9/2013
It's 1905 in Manhattan. Esther, a gifted seamstress, crafts lingerie for a variety of clientele, including Fifth Avenue socialites and Tenderloin district prostitutes. She dreams of finding a husband and beginning a love-filled marriage. She also longs to open a beauty parlor in Harlem with the money she has quietly saved over the years. Through a series of long distance letters, Esther meets George, and her aspirations appear within reach. In Intimate Apparel, Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Lynn Nottage weaves a tale of romance, ambition, and self-discovery. "The language of Intimate Apparel is a thing of beauty, at times approaching poetry…The play is a story about citizens grabbing for the same crust of bread, occasionally pulling nourishment from one another's mouths. It is a parable about sweet dreams and honeyed words that, in an instant, can turn sour." -Los Angeles Times Intimate Apparel is the 2004 winner of the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best Play and the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Play.

Oscar G Brockett Theatre (Produced by University of Texas at Austin Department of Theatre and Dance)
3/1-3/9/2013
THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS AT AUSTIN DEPARTMENT OF THEATRE & DANCE PRESENTS INTIMATE APPAREL A TALE OF ROMANCE, AMBITION, AND SELF-DISCOVERY BY PULITZER PRIZE WINNER Lynn Nottage MARCH 1 -9, 2013 AT THE OSCAR G. BROCKETT THEATRE "The language of Intimate Apparel is a thing of beauty, at times approaching poetry…The play is a story about citizens grabbing for the same crust of bread, occasionally pulling nourishment from one another's mouths. It is a parable about sweet dreams and honeyed words that, in an instant, can turn sour." -Los Angeles Times The University of Texas at Austin Department of Theatre and Dance presents Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Lynn Nottage's tale of romance, ambition, and self-discovery, Intimate Apparel, March 1-9 at the Oscar G. Brockett Theatre. It's 1905 in Manhattan, and Esther, a gifted seamstress, dreams of marriage and longs to open a beauty parlor with the money she has quietly saved over the years. Through a series of long distance letters, Esther meets George, and her aspirations appear within reach. Intimate Apparel premiered at Baltimore's Center Stage in 2003, receiving rave reviews and recognized with the American Theatre Critics and New York Drama Critics' Circle Awards for Best Play. For director Melissa Maxwell, Lynn Nottage's masterpiece offers audiences a story that, while set at the turn of the 20th century, is contemporary and universal. "Before the telephone, letters were, by necessity, The Common form of communication," explains Maxwell. "The advent of email brought writing back into fashion. And now, certainly among younger generations, writing has become the preferred way to communicate: people would rather text or email than pick up a phone; they'll friend someone on facebook but not in person; they create fantastic profiles for themselves on dating sites. And often there is a great disparity between how they present themselves and who they are in the flesh. When fantasy finally meets reality - just as is the case for Esther and George in Intimate Apparel - it is often a rude awakening." Maxwell is a director, writer, and actor whose work has been seen on stage, television, and film. Current directing projects include American Slavery Project's Unheard Voices and Vital Theatre's Show Way, a children's musical based on the award-winning book of the same name by Jacqueline Woodson. For more information on Intimate Apparel, please visit www.JoinTheDrama.org. The Oscar G. Brockett is located in the F. Loren Winship Drama Building (WIN) at the intersection of 23rd Street and SAN JACINTO. The physical address is 300 East 23rd Street, Austin, Texas 78712.

Now Playing Onstage in Austin - Week of 2/24/2013 TRU
ZACH Theatre
1/10-3/10/2013
TRU starring Jaston Williams Written by Jay Presson Allen Directed by LARRY RANDOLPH Greater Tuna star Jaston Williams inhabits Truman Capote in a virtuoso performance of the charming, acerbic, fragile, and enigmatic writer. In this one-man tour de force, Williams' astonishing portrayal of the In Cold Blood and Breakfast at Tiffany's author is by turns hilarious, vulnerable, and confessional. The audience becomes confidants to TRU's trademark wit and honesty. Packed houses, standing ovations, and waves of laughter characterized this show in its initial run at ZACH Theatre 12 years ago making it the hottest ticket in town. This production promises to be even more fun this time around. "A man who doesn't dream is like a man who doesn't sweat: he stores up a lot of poison." - Truman Capote ZACH's Producing Artistic Director Dave Steakley says: "By popular demand, I am bringing back one of our favorite plays from a dozen years ago that featured one of our favorite performances-Jaston Williams as Truman Capote, the renowned writer who had a flair for drinking freely, living freely, dreaming freely, and jabbing freely at the underbellies of New York City's social elite. Just like the Greater Tuna characters that Jaston made famous, this role fits him like a glove. The play is hilarious and poignant in his hands, and the intimacy of the Whisenhunt Theatre makes it feel like you are having drinks with a great friend in their stylish apartment. The good news is that this friend has the best stories and gossip to share!"
