Photo Flash: First Look at L.I.P. Service's Regional Premiere of GRACELAND
L.I.P. Service will present the regional premiere of Ellen Fairey's touching and beautiful play, Graceland, directed by Van Quattro, November 2-18, 2017 at the Firehouse Theatre, with performances Thursday through Saturday at 8pm. Tickets ($20) can be purchased at www.lipserviceproductions.info.
Graceland was originally produced by Profiles Theatre in Chicago and had its New York premiere at Lincoln Center's LCT3. The historic Graceland Cemetery in Chicago is the backdrop for the story of four lonely Chicagoans whose lives collide one August weekend while the Blue Angels airshow is in town. As fighter jets buzz the skies from dusk till dawn, estranged brother and sister, Sam and Sara, try to make sense of their father's recent suicide. Sara's one-night stand with Joe, an aging lothario, brings further trouble in the form of Joe's mercurial teenage son, Miles.
The cast of Graceland features Emily Scott Banks*, Elizabeth Kensek*, Andrew Kasten, R. Andrew Aguilar, and Miles Alexander with costume/set design by Jason Leyva, lighting design by Scott Davis, sound design by DB Design & Van Quattro, scenic artistry by Lily Stapp-Courtney & Stephanie Campbell, and Stage Management by Nicole Luger & Devon Miller. *Appearing courtesy of Actors Equity Association.
