Photo Flash: First Look at SEMINAR at the Beck Center

Beck Center for the Arts presents SEMINAR by Theresa Rebeck, directed by Donald Carrier. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

Nominated as Best Play by the Outer Critics Circle and the Drama League, Seminar is a new provocative comedy from Pulitzer Prize nominee Theresa Rebeck. This play tells the story of four aspiring novelists who sign up for private writing lessons with Leonard, an international literary figure. Under his recklessly brilliant and unorthodox instruction, some thrive while others flounder. Wordplay is not the only thing that turns vicious in this biting comedy.

Seminar is directed by Donald Carrier, the Associate Director for the Case Western Reserve University/CPH MFA Acting Program. The cast of five talented area actors includes Scott Plate (Leonard) and Lara Knox (Kate) who appear courtesy of Actor's Equity Association. Plate, an award-winning actor, has appeared at Beck Center in collaboration with Baldwin Wallace Music Theatre Program in the critically-acclaimed productions of Spring Awakening and Next to Normal. Knox, a seven year company member with the Ohio Shakespeare Festival, holds numerous local and regional acting and teaching credits.

Tickets for Seminar are $29 for adults, $26 for seniors (65 and older), and $12 for students (with valid ID). An additional $3 service fee per ticket is applied at the time of purchase. Preview Night on Thursday, May 29, is $10 with general admission seating. Group discounts are available for parties of 13 or more. Purchase tickets online at beckcenter.org or call Customer Service at 216.521.2540 x10. Beck Center is located at 17801 Detroit Avenue in Lakewood, just ten minutes west of downtown Cleveland. Free onsite parking is available.
