Ensemble's 2018 Colombi New Plays Festival Opens With MAMA / MOON.

A play about the unlikely friendship between "Mama" Cass Elliot - of The Mamas & the Papas - and Keith Moon, original drummer of The Who. The sweetest, heavyset singer of all time and the wildest, womanizing, party animal in Rock 'n Roll. Together. For one night. What could possibly go wrong?

This year's Colombi New Plays Festival is centered on the themes presented in Tony Kushner's Angels in America, with Part Two: Perestroika running April 27 - May 20 after the success of Part One: Millennium Approaches in January of this year.

Each year, the festival showcases new plays written by area writers, many of whom participate in Ensemble's weekly open-door StageWrights Workshop. StageWrights meet every Wednesday evening at 7pm at Ensemble Theatre and provides opportunities for writers to work on new plays with fellow writers, actors, and directors.

In conjunction with the full production of Cleveland playwright Tom Frattare's Mama / Moon, the Colombi New Plays Festival will feature readings of new Ten-Minute, One-Act, and Full-Length plays from theatre artists across Northeast Ohio being held throughout the months of March and April.

All readings are free and open to the public and will be held at Ensemble Theatre, the BottleHouse in Cleveland Heights, and CLE Urban Winery in Cleveland Heights! For Festival Schedule and information, go to http://www.ensembletheatrecle.org/special-events/
