The final two performances of the kaleidoscopic romantic comedy-drama Eleanor Rigby is Waiting, written by award-winning author David James Parr, presented as the chapter The Closure Experience, will take place May 3rd and 10th at 6:30pm at The Duplex Cabaret Theatre Space (61 Christopher Street).

This unique theatrical concept, presented as a boundless experience combined with an evocative live music performance by singer-songwriter Hadiza Dockeray and her band, invites the audience each night on a unique date with surprising characters and one chance to connect with an array of strangers, played by a group of versatile powerhouse actors in an interconnected portrait of love, lust and longing in our modern world.

Eleanor Rigby is Waiting (24 strangers. 24 hours. 1 chance to connect) is a kaleidoscopic romantic comedy-drama consisting of a mosaic of interconnected vignettes, exploring different shades of human emotion. The show was initially inspired by the lyrics of the popular song by The Beatles: "Ah, look at all the lonely people. Where did they all come from?" Edward Albee famously got his cryptic title for Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? from a bathroom mirror in a West Village restaurant where these words were scrawled. A central character in Parr's play similarly sees the phrase Eleanor Rigby Is Waiting written in lipstick on a bathroom mirror and begins to ruminate about its origin. Is it about loneliness? Is it about hope? And how long, exactly, can you keep a person waiting before they break?

The cast for Eleanor Rigby is Waiting features Elizabeth A. Bell, Robert Driemeyer, Helen Farmer, Wyatt Fenner, Jamie Johnson, Joe MacDougall, Julie McKay, Shelly Ramoni, and Ashley Kristeen Vega.

Hadiza Dockeray's band features David Pearl (Music Director/Piano/Keyboards), Jason DiMatteo (Bass), Jarrett Walser (Drums), and John Morrison (Guitar).
