Bit of a Stretch Theatre Co. Presents FIRST LADY SUITE, Now thru 8/5

In a series of four beautifully scored one-act musicals by Michael John LaChiusaFirst Lady Suite journeys into the lives of four First Ladies – Jackie Kennedy, Mamie Eisenhower, Bess Truman, and Eleanor Roosevelt - and the people around them. "Weird, Funny, and Wigged out," according to the NY Times, the piece meditates on finding one's identity and how we all must struggle to find our own way while in the shadow of another.

The production concludes Bit of a Stretch Theatre Co's 2012 Summer Season, which featured Jean-Paul Sartre's classic No Exit in June. 

Directed by Erin Cressy, with Music Direction by Wiley DeWeese, First Lady Suite boasts a cast featuring Julia Kay Laskowski, Regina Morgan, Betty Marie Muessig, Karen Ross, Abby Seible, Gina-Marie Vincent, and Brad Zimmerman. Marc Duncan is the technical director, with scenic design by Leslie Turner, lighting design by Paige Seber, and costume design by Alex Casillas.

First Lady Suite opens tonight, July 26th and runs through Sunday, August 5th at Studio 101 in the Spring Street Studios Arts Complex, 1824 Spring Street. Shows are Thursdays at 7:30pm, Fridays at 8pm, Saturdays at 2pm and 8pm, and Sundays at 3pm. Tickets are $20 – $25 and available at www.bitofastretch.org or by calling 1-800-838-3006.
