Photo Flash: First Look at Lisa Kron's WELL at 1st Stage

"This play is not about my mother and me," begins the character, Lisa. But, of course, it is about her mother, and her mother's extraordinary ability to heal a changing neighborhood, despite her inability to heal herself. The 1st Stage production of Well by Lisa Kron features Laura Artesi, Audrey Bertaux, Edward Christian, Marquis D. Gibson, Lolita Marie, and Elizabeth Pierotti. Michael Bloom directs the production at 1st Stage. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

Lisa Kron's "theatrical exploration of a universal experience" spans from her childhood in an integrating neighborhood in Lansing, Michigan to her stay at an allergy unit in Chicago when she was 19; exploring the interaction between those two stories of healing. This compelling exploration spins out of control into riotously funny and unexpected territory as Lisa takes the audience on a journey to discover why some people are sick and some people are well and the lengths to which we will go to understand each other.

The design team includes: scenic design by Luciana Stecconi, costume design by Danielle Preston, lighting design by Catherine Girardi, sound design by Kenny Neal, properties design by Gadgetgrlz (Kay Rzasa and Deb Crerie), and fight choreography by Patrick Kilpatrick.

Well will run at 1st Stage from March 23-April 23 with show times as follows: Thursdays at 7:30pm, Fridays at 8pm, Saturdays at 2pm and 8pm, and Sundays at 2pm. General admission tickets are $30. Senior (65+) tickets are $27. Student and military tickets are $15. Tickets, Subscriptions, and Flex Passes can be purchased online at www.1stStage.org or by calling the 1st Stage box office at 703-854-1856. The run time is approximately 1 hour and 40 minutes with no intermission.
