Photo Coverage: Primary Stages Opens SECRETS OF THE TRADE
Primary Stages, in association with Ted Snowdon, launched its 26th season with the New York premiere of SECRETS OF THE TRADE by Jonathan Tolins directed by Matt Shakman last night, August 10. The five-member cast features Amy Aquino as Joanne Lipman, Bill Brochtrup as Bradley, John Glover as Martin Kerner, Mark Nelson as Peter Lipman and Noah Robbins as Andrew Lipman.
In show business, it's all about who you know. Or is it? Andy Lipman, a smart, ambitious kid from Long Island dreams of a career on Broadway and hopes that his idol, theater legend Martin Kerner, can give it to him. Will Kerner open Andy's door to success, or will their complicated relationship force him to question a life in the theater?
SECRETS OF THE TRADE received its world premiere in 2008 at the Black Dahlia Theatre in Los Angeles directed by Matt Shakman and featured Amy Aquino, Bill Brochtrup and John Glover and received the 2009 GLAAD Award for Best New Play and was named by The L.A. Times as one of the "10 Best '08."
