Seth Rudetsky to Host Talk-Back After UNBROKEN CIRCLE, 10/24
SiriusXM radio host and producer/performer Seth Rudetsky will host a talk back at Unbroken Circle after its penultimate performance Off-Broadway on Thursday, October 24th at 7 PM. Mr. Rudetsky will be joined by his husband, playwright James Wesley and their daughter, Juli. Both Mr. and Miss Wesley star in Unbroken Circle playing father and daughter.
Mr. Rudetsky, a co-producer of the play, will lead a discussion that will include topics from the process of getting the play off-Broadway, to what it's like be father and daughter playing a father and daughter, as well as the biographical nature of the play. Mr. Wesley based parts of the play on his extended Texas family and audience members often ask what aspects are true.
Presented by Mr. Rudetsky and Mary J. Davis, Unbroken Circle, directed by Jason St. Little, began previews Off-Broadway at the St. Luke's Theater (308 W. 46th Street) on May 29th and officially opened on June 19th. The New York Times wrote that "the script makes all the right moves," whileTheaterMania called it "Gasp-inducing," and the Garden State Journal deemed it "brilliant."
