Florida Rep Adds Two Productions to 2014-15 Schedule, 'VANYA AND SONIA' Will Now Open Season
Florida Repertory Theatre has announced three exciting changes to its 2014-15 line-up that mean more laughter for SWFL audiences.
Previously slated for a January run, the 2013 Tony-Winning BEST Play, Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, will kick off the season. Murder at the Howard Johnson's, a screwball comedy that takes place at Christmastime, will now run in December.
Florida Rep has also announced the addition of two new titles to the 2014-2015 schedule: One Slight Hitch by Lewis Black and Split in Three by Daryl Lisa Fazio.
One Slight Hitch is a brand-new wedding-day farce from the mind of comedian, Lewis Black. Making its Florida premiere in the Historic Arcade Theatre, this sharp and witty comedy chronicles Doc and Delia Coleman as they plan their daughter's lavish wedding. Everything is going according to plan...until the doorbell rings and one slight hitch threatens to ruin everything.
Split in Three by Daryl Lisa Fazio is an electrifying drama that was featured in Florida Rep's Inaugural PlayLab Festival last spring, and is a moving and timely story of sisterhood that unfolds against the backdrop of the segregated south. As one last county in Mississippi is forced to integrate, two women discover a sister they never knew they had-and the color of their world changes before their eyes.
"This season is non track to be one of the most memorable on record," said Producing Artistic Director, Robert Cacioppo, "and these changes add more laughter and more variety. There really is something for everyone this year: comedies for those who want to laugh, dramas for those who want to be challenged, and everything in between."
