Manhattan Repertory Opens SOMDOMITE: THE LOVES OF OSCAR WILDE Tonight
Fresh from its third place place finish in the 2014 Thesis Theatre Festival, Somdomite: The Loves of Oscar Wilde, a play by Joshua R. Pangborn, is receiving its first NYC revival as part of the Manhattan Repertory Theatre's Spring New Works Festival.
Opening tonight, April 16th, 2014 at 6:30 P.M. at the Manhattan Repertory Theatre on 303 W 42nd St., 6th floor, Somdomite strips away the pleasantries of Victorian England and reveals the lives of those people most affected by the actions of Oscar Wilde's disastrous decisions. Additional performances are on April 17th at 6:30 and April 18th at 6:30.
Oscar Wilde once said "One should always be in love. That is the reason one should never marry." Oscar was always in love; unfortunately, he was also married. The conflict between the men he loved and the woman he married led him to ruin. Somdomite: The Loves of Oscar Wilde tells this story: of those he loved and those lost him as he looked up at the stars from life's gutters. Reprising his role is Thespis Theatre Festival Best Actor Nominee and 2nd place winner Dane MK as the titular playwright. Also returning are Stuart Kiczek, recently seen in Troma Film's newest release, Return to Nuke 'Em High, as Robbie Ross and Ellen Orlando as Lady Wilde. Joining them are newcomers Kat Myrphy as Oscar's wide, Constance, Nick Bombicino as Oscar's love, Bosie, and Brandon Cordeiro as Oscar's friend, Edward.
