Asolo Repertory Theatre
1/11-2/28/2013
David Mamet's scalding comedy/drama tackles one of the most elusive topics in all of American literature: the pursuit of the American dream. A contemporary classic that became a celebrated film, this 1984 Pulitzer Prize-winner examines a group of cutthroat Chicago real estate agents who will do anything to close the deal. With a gift for natural dialogue and a realistic portrayal of these men's struggles, Mamet creates "crackling tension...ferocious comedy and drama" (New York Times). Contains strong/mature language.

American Stage Theatre Company
1/18-3/3/2013
It is 1936 and Boy Willie arrives in Pittsburgh from the South in a battered truck loaded with watermelons to sell. He has an opportunity to buy some land down home, but he has to come up with the money right quick. He wants to sell an old piano that has been in his family for generations, but he shares ownership with his sister and it sits in her living room. She has already rejected several offers because the antique piano is covered with incredible carvings detailing the family's rise from slavery. The issue of whether or not to sell it cuts deeply and raises questions about honoring the past or moving into the future.

Now Playing Onstage in St. Petersburg - Week of 2/17/2013 A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM
The Manatee Players
2/21-3/17/2013
Inspired by the farces of the ancient Roman playwright Plautus (251-183 BC), specifically Pseudolus, Miles Gloriosus and Mostellaria, the musical tells the story of a slave named Pseudolus and his attempts to win his freedom by helping his young master woo the girl next door. The plot displays many classic elements of farce, including puns, the slamming of doors, cases of mistaken identity (frequently involving characters disguising themselves as one another), and satirical comments on social class. The title derives from the line that vaudeville comedians often used to begin a story: "A funny thing happened on the way to the theater".

Now Playing Onstage in St. Petersburg - Week of 2/17/2013 THE HEIDI CHRONICLES
Asolo Repertory Theatre
1/19-3/17/2013
If you were a woman finding your way in the world between the 1960s and 1980s, you might think that this play was all about you. After surviving three decades of juggling her career and her personal life, baby boomer art historian Heidi Holland looks back at her quest to "have it all" and tries to figure out what's missing now that she's actually got it. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for Best Play, Wasserstein's funny and touching play still mirrors the emotional trials faced by all of us as we try to figure out the big question: What should we do with our lives?
