David Mamet's THE ANARCHIST Toplines Boca Raton Theatre Guild's 2013-14 Season
The Boca Raton Theatre Guild has added four additional productions to its 2013-2014 season. Under the direction of Artistic Director Keith Garsson and a forward-thinking board of directors, the company has decided to expand their reach and venture beyond their home base, The Willow Theatre in Sugar Sand Park.
The BRTG, who recently announced they have combined their 2013-2014 Willow Theatre season with that of The Women's Theatre Project, has been consistently evolving in recent years, "And this is just the next step," explains Garsson.
The show choices are eclectic, and have been chosen to attract a broad range of theatre patrons. David Mamet, Marilyn Monroe, an edgy new musical, and a South Florida favorite are all on the Guild's extended schedule, and some of the area's top talent has signed on to bring these productions to life:
Sunny Thompson will star in Marilyn: Forever Blonde at the Township Center for the Performing Arts from November 21st to December 1st. Thompson has received rave reviews for her masterful portrayal of the still popular legend nationally and internationally. The show will also play at the Mizner Cultural Arts Center's Studio Theatre from January 9th - 11th.
The Boca Raton Theatre Guild will team with Peter J. Loewy and present RESPECT: A Musical Journey of Women from December 5th through January 5th at the Mizner Park Cultural Arts Center's Studio Theatre. This is a return of the very first, wildly popular Florida incarnation of RESPECT and will be helmed by Loewy, the show's first director. RESPECT: A Musical Journey of Women details the journey of women told through Top-40 music. Combining excerpts of 60 songs including "Someone to Watch Over Me," "I Will Survive," "I Will Follow Him," "These Boots are Made for Walking," "What's Love Got to Do with it," and "Hero" with women's own stories about finding dreams, lost love, relationship issues, entering the workforce, gaining independence, and more.
From February 28th - March 21st audiences will have the opportunity to see the Southeast American premiere of Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Mamet's The Anarchist, starring Carbonell Award-winner Patti Gardner and Jacqueline Laggy. Two women and one unspeakable crime highlight this searing drama as one character's radical past in the turbulent 70s comes back to haunt her....again. This production will take place in the Andrews Living Arts Studio, an intimate, 50 seat black box theatre well suited to the play.
Everyday Rapture was praised by critics and audiences alike when it played on Broadway in 2010. Margot Moreland will star in the Southeast premiere of this Tony Award-nominated musical story of a young woman's psycho-sexual-spiritual journey on the rocky path that separates her mostly Mennonite past from her mostly Manhattan future. Her life takes her from the cornfields of Kansas to the clover fields of New York (with a disturbing detour through YouTube). Featuring songs made famous by Harry Nilsson, The Band, David Byrne, Roberta Flack, Mister Rogers, The Dap Kings and Judy Garland. Everyday Rapture will run from April 25th - May 11th at the Mizner Park Cultural Arts Center, and from May 25th - May 27th at the Willow Theatre in Sugar Sand Park.
The Boca Raton Theatre Guild is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to producing professional productions and advancing the art of theatre in the South Florida community.
