THE PROMPTER was part of the last year's Title Wave @ Bay Street: The 5th Annual New Works Festival. "This play was a big hit at last year's festival, and due to popular demand we are thrilled to now offer our audience the world premiere production of this delightful new comedy about the making of a Broadway show," says Scott Schwartz. "I first worked with Tovah on Golda's Balcony, which became the longest-running one-woman show in Broadway history, and I am thrilled to be reunited with her and to continue my journey with Wade as we bring The Prompter to life this summer."
THE PROMPTER is a new comedy about veteran actress Irene Young (Tovah Feldshuh), who, after a forty-year absence, is returning to the Broadway stage. But now, she can't do it alone; so, the production hires a young actor Wade (Wade Dooley) to be her prompter. But, this isn't her story, it's his. Based on real events, THE PROMPTER is a funny, heartfelt, untold, behind-the-scenes look at Broadway through the eyes of a young dreamer.
The creative team includes Kevin Depinet (Set Design), Mike Billings (Lighting Design), Tracy Christensen (Costume Design), Jon Weston (Sound Design), J. Jared Janas (Wig, Hair and Makeup Design), Andrew Diaz (Props Design), Denise Yaney (Stage Manager) and Binder Casting (Casting).
