Broadway's Patrick Ryan Sullivan Stars in Annapolis Shakespeare Company's OUR TOWN, Opening Friday
Annapolis Shakespeare Company's production of Our Town by Thornton Wilder, directed by Sally Boyett and starring Broadway's Patrick Ryan Sullivan, will open January 27 at the Annapolis Shakespeare Theatre at 1804 West Street.
Thornton Wilder's OUR TOWN - Winner of the 1938 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and described by Edward Albee as "...the greatest American play ever written," follows the small town of Grover's Corners through three acts: "Daily Life," "Love and Marriage," and "Death and Eternity." Narrated by a stage manager and performed with minimal props and sets, audiences follow the Webb and Gibbs families as their children fall in love, marry, and eventually-in one of the most famous scenes in American theatre-die. Annapolis Shakespeare Company presents this classic masterpiece through a fresh lens.
Performances are Fridays at 8:00p.m., Saturdays at 2:00pm & 8:00p.m., and Sundays at 3:00p.m. Tickets are $25-45 with discounts for Seniors and Students. Opening night tickets are priced at $55-60 and include a post-performance reception with the director, star, cast and design team. The production runs five weekends through Sunday, February 26th.
Please call the box office at 410-415-3513 or visit AnnapolisShakespeare.org for ticket details. All performances are accessible for wheelchair patrons. Call the box office to arrange any special seating needs.
