Amphibian Stage Productions' Staged Reading of LEBENSRAUM Set for 6/8-9
Amphibian Stage Productions opens its second staged reading of the 2014 season, Lebensraum by Israel Horovitz, this Sunday, kicking off a two-performance run of the play. Luke Longacre, Brian Mathis and Alexandra Lawrence star in this infectious comedy running Sunday, June 8 and Monday, June 9 at the Berlene T. and Jarrell R. Milburn Theatre at Amphibian Stage Productions.
Lisa Devine (Director) has directed professionally all over the country, including Rover Dramawerks, Chicago's Profiles Theatre, Weitzenhoffer Theatre in Oklahoma and Off-Broadway with Theatre East. Academically, she has taught theater at multiple colleges and universities including Collin College, LaSalle University and the University of Oklahoma. Lisa received her Master of Fine Arts in directing from the University of Oklahoma.
Luke Longacre returns to the Amphibian stage after last summer's hilarious, The Bible: The Complete Word of God (ABRIDGED). Actor Brian Mathis was last seen in Amphibian's reading of Inventing Van Gogh. Alexandra Lawrence makes another appearance to the Amphibian stage after her work this season in Bank Job.
Using a cast of three to play 40 sharply-drawn characters, this bold and controversial work of penetrating intelligence is based on the fanciful, explosive idea that a German Chancellor might, as an act of redemption, invite six million Jews to Germany and promise them citizenship and jobs. A resulting scenario unfolds that explores the effects of the policy on Jews and Gentiles around the world and asks the question, "Could history repeat itself?"
Lebensraum will be performed on Sunday, June 8 at 2pm and on Monday, June 9 at 7pm at Amphibian Stage Productions.
Tickets for Lebensraum are $17 for adults, $12 for seniors, and $7 for students. For tickets and more information, theatergoers may call 817-923-3012, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit www.amphibianproductions.org. The theater is located at 120 S. Main Street, Fort Worth, Texas 76104.
