Photo Flash: First Look at 'WHO AM I THIS TIME?' at Stages Repertory Theatre

The first in Stages Repertory Theatre's 2017 Get Talking Series that highlights important voices in Contemporary Theatre - WHO AM I THIS TIME? (& OTHER CONUNDRUMS OF LOVE) by Aaron Posner and adapted from stories by Kurt Vonnegut, made its regional premiere in Houston on January 25 and runs through February 12. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

Directed by long-time Stages and Houston actor and director Sally Edmundson (Driving Miss Daisy, Auntie Mame, Amy's View), WHO AM I THIS TIME takes a good-natured look at love and the conundrums that accompany it through the interconnected stories of three couples, all set against the backdrop of North Crawford Mask & Wig Club - "the finest community theatre in central Connecticut." The play's New England everyman narrator and the poignant, often comic look at daily life and relationships are gently reminiscent of Thornton Wilder's classic Our Town.

WHO AM I THIS TIME received its world premiere at Artists Repertory Theatre in Portland, OR in 2012 and has garnered positive reviews for regional productions. Posner, who also wrote Stages' hugely successful Stupid Fucking Bird (2015), took his inspiration from the three Vonnegut short stories "Long Walk to Forever", WHO AM I THIS TIME and "Go Back To Your Precious Wife and Son" to create the script.

WHO AM I THIS TIME stars Jason Duga (Straight White Men, Bad Jews), Deborah Hope (Shear Madness, Searching for Eden), Blake Jackson (Big Fish), Philip Lehl (Yankee Tavern, Oh, the Humanity!, I am My Own Wife), Josh Morrison (Shear Madness, Driving Miss Daisy, Sexy Laundry), Emily Neves (Miss Teen, Marie Antoinette, Stupid F**king Bird), and Bree Welch (Rabbit Hole).

The creative team includes Jodi Bobrovsky, Properties Designer; Jack Ivy, Sound Designer; Ryan McGettigan, Scenic Designer; John Smetak, Lighting Designer; Claremarie Verheyen, Costume Designer; and Sara Brossman Hodgin, Production Stage Manager.

Lehl is known to Houston audiences both for his frequent appearances on stage and as the Co-Artistic Director of Houston's 4th Wall Theatre Company. Hope and Morrison reunite following their recent much-lauded appearance in Stages' hit comedy Shear Madness, while Stages audiences will recognize Neves from her star turns in Marie Antoinette and Stupid Fucking Bird.

Post-show Q&A discussions with the cast and creative team will take place Sunday, January 29 at 2:30pm, Thursday, February 2 at 7:30pm, and Sunday, February 5 at 2:30pm. For tickets and more information, visit www.stagestheatre.com.
