Photo Flash: First Look Vineyard's THE AMATEURS


BroadwayWorld has the newest production photos for Vineyard Theatre's world premiere production of The Amateurs by Jordan Harrison (2015 Pulitzer Prize finalist for MARJORIE PRIME) directed by Oliver Butler (THE OPEN HOUSE, Obie Award for Direction), check them out below!

THE AMATEURS is currently in previews and opens on Tuesday, February 27.

THE AMATEURS features Kyle Beltran (Vineyard's GLORIA, HEAD OF PASSES), Quincy Tyler Bernstine (RUINED, Manchester by the Sea), Michael Cyril Creighton (STAGE KISS, Spotlight), Greg Keller (Vineyard's SOMEWHERE FUN, OUR MOTHER'S BRIEF AFFAIR), Jennifer Kim (Vineyard's GLORIA, "Mozart in the Jungle"), and Thomas Jay Ryan (THE CRUCIBLE, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind).

In The Amateurs, an intrepid troupe of pageant players races across medieval Europe, struggling to outrun the Black Death. The arrival of a mysterious outsider sends Hollis, the leading lady, in search of answers that can only be found off-script... and soon the 14th century plague begins to look like another, more recent one. This wildly inventive and funny new work examines the evolution of human creativity in a dark age: when does a crisis destroy us, and when does it open new frontiers?

The award-winning design team includes scenic design by David Zinn (SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS); costume design by Jessica Pabst(MARVIN'S ROOM); lighting design by Jen Schriever (ECLIPSED); sound design by Bray Poor (LATIN HISTORY FOR MORONS); wig, hair, & makeup design by Dave Bova & J. Jared Janas (SUNSET BOULEVARD); and mask & puppet design Raphael Mishler (PATRON SAINT OF SEA MONSTERS).

THE AMATEURS is a recipient of an Edgerton Foundation New Play Award. The Amateurs was originally commissioned by South Coast Repertory and received a staged reading as part of The Goodman Theatre's New Stages Festival.
