Caldwell Theatre Company Presents Southeastern Premiere of Next Fall

Continuing its recent trend of ‘first in the region to produce', Caldwell Theatre Company is set to launch the Pulitzer Prize Nominated and Tony Nominated smash hit, Next Fall, by Geoffrey Nauffts, which dives headfirst into the world of religion, families and honesty to oneself.

The cast includes: Caldwell stalwarts, Tom Wahl (Suite Surrender, Bent), Pat Nesbit (Doubt, Clean House, Enchanted April), Irene Adjan (Where's Charley?), adds newcomers, Joshua Canfield (London-Sail Away, Germany-Hair ), Christopher Kent (Actors' Playhouse-Jesus Christ Superstar, BRSC in North Carolina-The Immigrant ), and is rounded out by Dennis Bateman (Caldwell-South Pacific, The Elephant Man. On TNT in Leverage as Adam Worth with Timothy Hutton) making his first return to Caldwell in almost 30 years.

Most notably, Next Fall will mark the return of Michael Hall, founding Artistic Director of Caldwell Theatre Company, to direct his first play since his retirement in 2009. Says Hall, "It is a play that I have such a passion for and when you combine that with the dream cast I was able to assemble, it's just a perfect scenario to come back to."

Next Fall, the 2010 Tony Award "Best Play" nominee, makes its South Florida debut now thru March 27 at the Caldwell Theatre Company in Boca Raton. Called "the funniest heartbreaker in town," Nauffts' comedic drama is the story of two contemporary gay men -- one with unshakeable faith and one with total disbelief -- as they confront parents and friends when a life-threatening accident causes everyone to examine the meaning of life, religion, and love. It's "artful, thoughtful and very moving," said The New York Times, "an intellectual stealth bomb."

The design team for Next Fall is comprised of, Tim Bennett-scenic design, Thomas Salzman-lighting design, Alberto Arroyo-costume design, Dustin Hamilton-sound design, and Deborah Veres-props.

Talk Backs with the cast, Clive Cholerton, Michael Hall, and community leaders will follow the performances: Thursday, March 3rd at 8:00 p.m.; Wednesday, March 9th at 2:00 p.m.; Thursday, March 27th at 8:00 p.m. and Sunday, March 20th at 2:00 p.m. There is no charge to attend the Talk Backs. 

The Caldwell Theatre Company is located at 7901 N. Federal Highway, Boca Raton, FL 33487. For the box office call 561-241-7432 or 1-877-245-7432. The Caldwell Theatre Company's upcoming production schedule can be found at
