Kate Russo Presents THE APARTMENT: A Play with Four Sides
Kate Russo will present the world premiere of THE APARMENT: A PLAY WITH FOUR SIDES as part of the 15th Annual New York International Fringe Festival, directed by Adam Blanshay. From the team that brought FringeNYC favorite Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockead to life, this new play is by turns a tale of beginnings and endings, love and loss, and above all, an examination of the many different stories lived within the same four walls.
In THE APARTMENT Sarah has fallen out of love with New York City and sublets her apartment to Tim, who sublets to Peter and Kristina, who get in a fight and go their separate ways, leaving the apartment for Matt and Nahid to move in with baggage of every imaginable kind. Tim is suspicious but turns out to be wrong, leaving Jerry and Rita to clean up the mess. If only walls could talk.
Following four 2011 Tony nominations as a producer (The Scottsboro Boys, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, Jerusalem, Catch Me If You Can), Adam Blanshay returns to directing at this year's FringeNYC with THE APARMENT. The cast includes Obie Award winner and three-time Drama Desk nominee Sarah Nina Hayon, Vayu O'Donnell, Victor J. Wisehart, Farah Bala, Christopher Johnstone, Mara Lalli, Chris Davis and Christina Broccolini.
The creative team includes Jeffrey Potter-Watts (set and costume design), Adam Blumenthal (lighting design) and Bobby McElver (sound design), Aislinn Curry (production stage manager), Jesse Marchese (assistant director), and Ericka Bracy (assistant stage manager).
THE APARTMENT is the first joint project for Sorrel Barnard, (producer of award-winning FringeNYC hit, Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead by Bert V. Royal, The Second Tosca), Lindsay Joy Murphy (Severance), Melissa Moran (Dog Sees God, The Second Tosca), and David Scott (I Love You, Petty, & Favre, FringeNYC 2008 Audience Favorite). Producer, Tony-nominee Kate Russo (The Scottsboro Boys), is pleased to join the FringeNYC family. www.playwith4sides.com
