Photo Flash: First Look at MAPLE AND VINE at Firehouse Theatre
Firehouse Theatre presents the regional premiere of Jordan Harrison's MAPLE AND VINE -- a new play about old times. Previews are tomorrow, April 7 and Friday, April 8 at 7:30pm. Opening is Saturday, April 9 at 7:30pm, and the runs continues through Sunday, May 8, 2016. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!Directed by Mark Lerman, MAPLE AND VINE focuses on yuppie power couple Katha and Ryu. She's an editor at Random House and her Asian American husband is a successful plastic surgeon, but Katha can't get a good night's sleep. When they're invited by a mysterious stranger to join the SDO (Society for Dynamic Obsolescence) they decide to give it all up to pursue more traditional values in the gated community of 1950s reenactors. The play examines the compelling pull of nostalgia and questions our yearning for the "good old days." The ensemble of MAPLE AND VINE includes Addie Barnhart (Ellen/Jenna), McLean Jesse (Katha), Landon Nagel* (Dean), Xander Wong (Ryu), and Adam Valentine (Roger/Omar).
The production team includes Mark Lerman (Director), Matthew Allar (Set and Costume Designer), Andrew Bonniwell (Lighting Designer), Jeanne Bishop (Props Master), Andrew Scott (Production Stage Manager), Phoebe Copeland (Assistant Stage Manager), Heather Ogden(Assistant Stage Manager), Danielle Gailey (Assistant Costume Designer), and Jenna Gavaler (Movement Consultant).For tickets, contact the Box Office at (804) 355-2001 or go online at www.firehousetheatre.org and mapleandvinerva.bpt.me.
