ACT to Present GREY GARDENS, OTHER DESERT CITIES and More in 2013
ACT – A Contemporary Theatre under the direction of Artistic Director Kurt Beattie officially announces the 2013 mainstage season. One of the most distinguished artists in the world, Sir Alan Ayckbourn, will stage his play, Sugar Daddies in the fall of 2013. Leading up to that is the musical Grey Gardens with The 5th Avenue Theatre, then the premiere of local playwright Katie Forgette's disturbingly funny take on senior care, Assisted Living, followed by two of the hottest shows from New York's stages last year, Jon Robin Baitz's Other Desert Cities and Gina Gionfriddo's Rapture, Blister, Burn, and then Middletown – Will Eno's modern response to Thornton Wilder's Our Town.
"2013 marks my 10th season as Artistic Director. It is a lifelong dream come true to work at a creative hub like ACT, surrounded by artists and audiences who relish exploring contemporary art and ideas," Kurt Beattie comments. "This is a season about what ACT does best, taking the strongest, smartest, and most exciting new plays and giving them top notch Seattle productions with the wealth of talent this city has to offer."
