What is time? Is it an arrow that moves continually in One Direction? Is it just an illusion that helps us organize our lives? Can we break free from our past and truly have free will? Do ghosts really exist, or are they a creation of our subconscious? With four Script In Hand Performances we will explore various aspects of time, and the role it plays in literature and in our everyday lives.
RAC's Time Reading Series presentation of Blithe Spirit features Rachel Botchan, Robin Leslie Brown, Bradford Cover, Dominic Cuskern, Dan Daily, Joi Danielle Price, Carol Schultz and Emma Wisniewski.
Two years ago, the Pearl Theatre Company closed its doors after 33 years of bringing New Yorkers the very best of the classical theater canon. But the spirit and mission of the Pearl lives on in the Resident Acting Company, and they are just getting started.
The company's mission is to continue and expand upon the great work they began at The Pearl. In 2018 they produced seven staged readings at The Players, and have now announced four more for Spring - Summer of 2019. This reading series has been wildly successful, allowing RAC to reconnect with these classic works in a contemporary context, to deepen its connection as a company, and most importantly, to reconnect with its beloved audience.
THE TIME SERIES lineup will also include The Cherry Orchard by Anton Chekhov on May 6, an evening of Shakespeare's Sonnets on June 10, and a fourth work that is soon to be announced. All readings will have a cash bar that starts at 6PMand the readings themselves will start at 7PM.
