Lunney, Neuberger, Etc. Set for Free Telescopes Reading


Coyote REP at the Players Club will present a free reading of Mat Smart's newest play Telescopes on Monday, July 16th 2007 at 7pm at the Players Club (16 Gramercy Park South, East 20th Street between Park and Irving).

The cast includes: JT Waite (Broadway Dracula, Amadeus), Robert Emmet Lunney (Broadway Deuce, Democracy, The Graduate, A Doll's House, Dancing At Lughnasa and The Night Of The Iguana),  Jan Neuberger (Broadway Wicked, How the Grinch Stole Christmas),  Donnetta Lavinia Grays (Broadway Well) and Greg Ayers (Our Town, San Francisco Playhouse).  It will be directed by Glenn Kalison (Coyote REP Producing Director).

"Set in a fantastic world where a family of lighthouse keepers is struggling to save themselves from an unknown malady, they are forced to confront their society's prejudice and hatred when a mysterious healer is shipwrecked on their shores," state press materials.

Mat Smart's most recent play, The 13th of Paris, a commission from South Coast Rep and further developed at The New Harmony Project, will have its world premiere at City Theatre in Pittsburgh in the 07/08 season.  He wrote the book and lyrics for Keep Ishmael, a new rock musical with music by Ethan Deppe (dir. by Evan Cabnet) that was produced last summer in Chicago at White Horse Theatre Company.  His play The Hopper Collection received productions at the Magic Theatre in San Francisco (dir. by Chris Smith) and Huntington Theatre Company in Boston (dir. by Daniel Aukin).

Coyote REP, recently featured in the New York Times, is "an emerging not-for-profit theatre company committed to developing, producing and inspiring original plays that challenge, surprise and arouse through innovative means.  They produce stage plays, sound plays and a video documentary series."
