The Jewish Repertory Theatre Presents EXQUISITE POTENTIAL

The Jewish Repertory Theatre will present a filmed Staged Reading of Exquisite Potential by Stephen Kaplan, available for digital download, April 8-28, 2021. This is fifth selection in a series of Five Staged Readings, performed on the JRT stage and seen, through the magic of video, wherever audiences choose to enjoy.

All parents think their children are brilliant. Alan Zuckerman just happens to think his 3-year-old son, David, is the Messiah. Thirty years ago, Alan and his wife, Laura, visited their rabbi to verify David's possible divine nature. Thirty years later, everyone older and wiser, it appears that dad might have been onto something.

Stephen Kaplan has been writing plays since age 15 and has numerous awards, commissions and productions including: Southeast Texas Festival of New Plays, NJ Playwrights Contest and B Street New Comedies Festival amongst many more. He is a member of the Dramatists Guild and serves as Northeastern Regional Representative for the DG National Council.

Exquisite Potential is directed by Adam Yellen and stars Brittany Bassett, Jordan Levin, David Lundy, and Ricky Needham. Kellin Higgins is Stage Manager, Adam Yellen and Steve Vaughan are Set Designers, and Nick Quinn is designing both Sound and Lighting for the production. Beau Jest will be filmed and edited by Full Circle Studios, and Closed Captioning options are being produced by Leah Barron at All Inclusive Productions, LLC.
