Kathleen Chalfant to Star in Private Theatre's Staged Reading of GENOA Next Week
Kathleen Chalfant, Tony Crane and Jim Thalman will star in The Private Theatre's staged reading of GENOA by Michael Sargent. Directed by David Schweizer, the reading is set for next Monday, December 15th at 7:00 pm at the LAByrinth Theater Company, 155 Bank Street.
An alcoholic actor loses everything and ends up living back at his family home in Genoa, Ohio, where he dreams and schemes of a return to California. But the American Dream gets stuck in reverse in this devastating and hilarious tragi-comedy.
The Private Theater (John Gould Rubin, Artistic Director) is a not-for-profit group of artists committed to raw, intimate and startling productions of classical, contemporary and devised work. We believe that authorial initiative in the theater can emerge from any theatrical discipline; that deeper collaborations create better theater; and that those collaborations may be forged across cultures, aesthetics and disciplines. In common with all of the arts, theater should aspire to work that affects its audiences deeply, engaging them in encounters that make a profound and enduring impression. We embrace this mission, and devote ourselves to finding the texts, stagecraft and collaborators to support us in its pursuit.
