Atlanta Based Synchronicity Theatre Company Cancels Last Two Shows of Season

The Atlanta based SynchroniCity Theatre Company has been forced to cancel their last two productions of the season due to a lack of funds. The company opened the season with a minimal budget and, after slow ticket sales of their first production, Bunnicula, it did not have enough left to produce the last two shows of the season.

The shows canceled were Sarah Ruhl's Dead Man's Cellphone and the family show, The Brand New Kid. Artistic director Rachel May has stated that the shows will be moved back to future seasons.

Currently playing at Synchronicity is Hillary Clinton Got Me Pregnant, a one-woman show starring playwright Megan Gogerty. Upcoming performances at Synchronicity include Woman + War and Free to Be...You and Me, both shows focusing on women's stories.

Gogerty, an Iowa-based actor, playwright and social observer, begins her hilarious semi-autobiographical tale waiting in line at a Hillary Clinton book signing. It progresses from there, tracking her hopeful liberal self as she journeys from the uncertainty of post-9/11 America, through the Bush years and motherhood, to the giddy Tomorrowland of Barack Obama's election as our 44th president. Funny, witty and insightful, Gogerty will make you laugh so much you won't even know your brain also has been engaged. We're thrilled to welcome Megan back to Atlanta. You might know her from her hilarious, gender-bending one-act Rumple Schmumple, at Dad's Garage in 2003; her musical Love Jerry, a finalist in the first Kendeda Graduate Playwriting Competition at the ALLIANCE THEATRE in 2005 and subsequently produced at Actor's Express in 2006; or her participation in SheWRITES, Synchronicity's national playwriting festival in 2005.

Tickets for Hillary Clinton Got Me Pregnant range in price from $15 to $23, with discounts available for Synchronicity members, groups, students, and seniors. Tickets can be purchased online or through the Synchronicity box office at www.synchrotheatre.com/tickets/buytickets.aspx.

Co-Producing Artistic Director Rachel May was named "Best Director 2002" by Creative Loafing for her work on two Synchronicity productions - Breath, Boom by Kia Corthron and One Flea Spare by Naomi Wallace. She is also a recipient of the NEA/TCG Career Development Program. Hope Mirlis was named "Best Choreographer 2000" by Creative Loafing. In addition, Synchronicity's productions have consistently ranked in the "Year in Review" and "Top 10" lists in many Atlanta publications.
