Photo Flash: First Look at Colleen Hughes, Amanda Schoonover and More in EgoPo' THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES
As an exploration of the line between the myth and the man, EgoPo brings a unique perspective to the conversation. The Assassination of Jesse James will be performed by an all women ensemble to take on the posturing and swagger of the infamous posse. In America's love affair with the Wild West, the female identity is restricted to the either the sassy whore or the austere pioneer wife. In this reimagining of the cowboy drama EgoPo reveals the female imagination and show women as a vital, complex part of the American identity.
Anne Frank veteran Melanie Julian takes on the ill-fated Jesse James. EgoPo welcomes back Colleen Hughes as the murderous Robert Ford. Miss Hughes was last seen in EgoPo's signature piece, Spring Awakening. EgoPo welcomes Kate Brennan as Charles Ford, the drug-addicted accomplice and brother to Robert. Finally, Amanda Schoonover makes her EgoPo debut as Zee, closest comrade to Jesse James.
The Assassination of Jesse James runs October 3rd through October 28th at The Prince Music Theater. Wednesday through Saturday performances are at 8pm, Sunday performances begin at 5pm and 8pm. Tickets: $20.00-$50.00. For tickets, call 267-273-1414 or go online at www.egopo.org.
