THAT OLD SOFT SHOE Plays At The Too Soon Festival 6/6-27
Playwright Matthew Freeman, director Kyle Ancowitz, and Blue Coyote Theater Group return to The Brick with THAT OLD SOFT SHOE, a redacted comedy. Their previous appearances include the much-ballyhooed productions of Glee Club and An Interview with the Author. In THAT OLD SOFT SHOE, a Senator from the Pacific Northwest arrives to inspect the goings-on in an undisclosed location, throwing the staff into turmoil. Will they all wind up working at a phone bank in Dallas? After all, it's a new administration.
