Baltimore Center Stage To Present WHITE RABBIT RED RABBIT
Baltimore Center Stage has announced upcoming performances of the theatrical event White Rabbit Red Rabbit in the intimate, experimental Third Space. Among the most talked-about and also least talked-about plays, White Rabbit Red Rabbit is an utterly original, wildly imaginative theatrical experience.
Written by Iranian playwright Nassim Soleimanpour when his plays could not be seen in his own country, the White Rabbit Red Rabbit script was surreptitiously sent to producers at a few international festivals. Since that time in 2011, the play has become an international phenomenon. The twist is that each performance is a world premiere: no rehearsals, no set, and a different performer reads the script cold each time, having received it moments before stepping onstage. Each performance of White Rabbit Red Rabbit is automatically a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
A unique theatrical concept, White Rabbit Red Rabbit has received worldwide accolades, and the experience will be enhanced by the innovative, intimate Third Space at Baltimore Center Stage. And in this "Season of Community," Baltimore Center Stage is excited to connect our audiences with an array of personalities from a wide cross-section of American culture, featuring performances from locally and nationally celebrated actors as well as community luminaries. Those scheduled to appear include: award-winning actresses Carrie Preston, Saycon Sengbloh, and Tracie Thoms; comedian and television personality Lisa Lampanelli, and best-selling author Wes Moore.
Casting may be subject to change; all tickets are $25 (apart from the Special Benefit Performance with Carrie Preston on Thursday, December 21).
Because of the spontaneous performance and mysterious premise of White Rabbit Red Rabbit, there are no previews and no reviews of the content.
Baltimore Center Stage is a professional, nonprofit institution committed to entertaining, engaging and enriching audiences through bold, innovative and thought-provoking classical and contemporary theater.
