BWW Previews: American Repertory Theater of WNY's 2014-15 Season
AMERICAN REPERTORY THEATER OF WESTERN NEW YORK is kicking off another great season in the Buffalo, New York area.
The 2014-15 season opens with Michael John LaChiusa's saucy HELLO AGAIN . The second show scheduled is the bewitching classic by Arthur Miller, THE CRUCIBLE. After a winter break, ART/WNY returns with Steve Martin's fun PICASSO AT LUPIN AGUILE.
The final production of the 2014-15 season once again shows ART's continued support of local playwrights.
An evening of intense theater on the unseen side of regional history entitled RUST BELT GROTESQUE.
We will see the works of Buffalo's James Marzo, Mark C. LLoyd, Justin Karcher and Artie award winning
playwright Mathew LaChiusa.
ART/WNY also "welcomes the Brazen Faced Varlets to the ART in the Box performance space as the latter company will present OPHELIA THINKS HARDER adapted from William Shakespeare's HAMLET by Jean Betts. This comedic retelling of Hamlet features a pondering Ophelia questioning her role as woman in a man's world. A tantalizing dark comedy reflecting what the company is all about under the directorial eye of Toni Smith-Wilson. OPHELIA THINKS HARDER is scheduled to open in December. The company is still seeking to fill roles and asks interested actors to contact them via Facebook page for more information on what roles are available."
The Brazen Faced Varlets are also kicking their season off with a fundraiser on August 23rd at the Gypsy Parlor, 376 Grant Street, from 8 pm t0 2 am.

"From stage manager to patron, actor to production crew, designer to director, what makes this company unique is the collaborative spirit shared between all who attend an ART/WNY production."
