Imagine youre stranded in a crowded airport, watching in despair as an oncoming blizzard shuts down flight after flight. You brace yourself for the uncomfortable seating, bad food and worse coffee that lie ahead. You see a familiar face, and your heart leaps and then sinks. Oh, no . . . its your old college flame, long burned out but never forgotten. Filled with laughter and ache, Shooting Star offers a bittersweet exploration of the middle days of our lives, and how we got there.
Our regional premiere production of Steven Dietzs twisty romantic comedy marks the TWTP debut -- and a welcome return to the stage -- for both Mary Tanner Bailey, playing Elena Carson, and Brandon Boyd as Reed McAllister. Shooting Star opens October 5 for a three-weekend run at the Looby Theater.
