POLL: What BRT show are you most eagerly anticipating in 2013?


First Night Award-winning Boiler Room Theatre is looking ahead to its 2013 season, unveiling the seven shows that will make up the company's Lucky 13th Season.

The 2013 season shows have been announced via social media this week, with each day featuring the announcement of another title in BRT's slate of shows.

"This year we are announcing our season in a brand new way," BRT announced earlier this week on Monday, August 13, of course. "Starting today, we will announce one show a day on our Facebook Page! We will announce a new show every day until August 20." 

However, for people in the audience for opening night of Steel Magnolias on Friday, August 17-directed by Lisa Gillespie and starring Kay Ayers, Keri Pisapia, Linda Speir, Lynn Yates, Cassie Hamilton and Lori Bargas-the entire season could be found in The Engineer, BRT's official playbill.

"Our 13th Season includes a lineup of unlucky Individuals, whether it be unlucky in love, life or failure. These unlucky shows will prove to be our Luckiest season to date!"
