Profile: The Grad Student, Chekhov, and the Circle of Friends: The Cherry Orchard, November 5 - 21

UPDATE: ALT review of The Cherry Orchard, November 6

Thanks to permission granted by Actors Equity at the petition of several of its prominent Austin members, Chekhov's last play will be presented in Austin for three weekends.

The production of The Cherry Orchard that opens on Thursday for a three-week run promises to be remarkable.

It’s a labor of love and a celebration of friendship, an homage to Chekhov for the second time in two years. An informal association of actors calling themselves the “Breaking String” group, a reference to the stage direction that concludes The Cherry Orchard, is working with Graham Schmidt, director, who also translated the play. Schmidt has just received his M.A. from UT.

This constellation occurs partly by serendipity and partly because of a shared admiration for Anton Pavelovich Chekhov. Dr. Chekhov, who died in 1904 from tuberculosis at the age of 44, may have been the first modern playwright, if one speaks of the twentieth century. He was one of the most humane, gentle and subtle playwrights of all time.

Jane Austen's classic novel adapted for the stage

Pride and Prejudice

November 13 – 22, 2009
at the B. Iden Payne Theatre.

James Maxwell adapts Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen's timeless novel, originally published in 1813. The highly plot-driven comedy of manners set in 1811 centers on the Bennet family, a comfortable, but not excessively wealthy family living in the countryside of England. As the Bennets have five daughters and no sons, Mrs. Bennet's main objective in life is to find (wealthy) husbands for her daughters and retain Longbourn, the family estate, in the Bennet name. When Jane, the eldest daughter, falls in love with a wealthy landowner named Charles Bingle, Mrs. Bennet believes her problems solved. Bingly's snobbish family and his close friend and acquaintance Fitzwilliam Darcy have other ideas.

Our Town

Directed by Wendy Pratt
Anderson High School Theatre

8403 Mesa Drive Austin
November 12-November 14, 7:30 p.m.

The play centers around the themes of life, love, and death, which are illustrated in the everyday routines of ordinary folk in Grover's Corners, N.H. Wilder mingles the simple and the profound in order for the audience to understand the everyday occurrences in this show are "an allegorical representation of all life." In the current Newsweek, Jeremy McCarter says, “Our Town isn't a nostalgic wallow in small town life. It's a harrowing story about human limitation--all the beauty and value we fail to recognize in our day-to-day lives"

She Stoops to Conquer, Classic Theatre, San Antonio, October 15 - November 1

She Stoops to Conquer
, approaching its last weekend in San Antonio, is elegant, witty, and stylish. Director Allan S. Ross recreates the conventions of the 18th century English theatre, including the use of a nearly bare stage, a painted partition at the rear, and the actors' respectful but self confident manner acknowledgement of the ladies and gentlemen of the public.

Goldsmith's work is a clever comedy of manners in which the men are all self-important bumblers of one sort or another and the women are there to set them right. There's rakishness; tom-foolery; and a decisive old harridan ruling her country manor, her husband, and her foolishly impulsive son. And, of course, courtship.

Nosferatu, Weird City Theatre Company at Dougherty Arts Center, October 22 - November 1

If you're looking for dark and spooky, then Weird City Theatre Company has got dark and spooky for you, down at the Dougherty Arts Center for the Thursday to Sunday Halloween weekend.

These connoisseurs of the unnerving have blended Bram Stoker's Dracula and F.W. Murnau's unauthorized German expressionist knock-off of the novel for a short, satisfying evening of the eerie.

You could view the 84-minute video of Murnau's 1922 silent film as preserved by the Cinemathèque française with an orchestral soundtrack either at Google video or at YouTube, but it may well be more fun to see Weird City reincarnate both the characters and the ghosts of those actors now long dead and gone.

Different Stages opens its 2009–2010 season with Thornton Wilder’s comedy The Skin of Our Teeth. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, this is the satiric story of the extraordinary Antrobus family down through the ages from the time of the war – any war. They have survived flood, fire, pestilence, the seven year locusts, the ice age, the pox and the double feature, a dozen wars and as many depressions. Ultimately bewitched, befuddled and becalmed, they are the stuff of which heroes and buffoons are made. Their survival is a wacky testament of faith in humanity.

Murder Ballad Murder Mystery, Tutto Theatre at Vortex Repertory, October 23 - November 7

Murder Ballad Murder Mystery is imagined and delivered as a clown show balanced precariously on deep and true traditional ballads.

Those ballads are deep, because stories of passion, violence and murder are rooted somewhere pretty close to our shared DNA; true, because they contain archetypes of our culture. The restless husband; the innocent and defenseless girl-child; the rapscallion, the rapist, and the rowdy. Including, of course, musicians and theatre folk.

Playwright Elizabeth Doss, who appears here as the female half of a Bonnie-and-Clyde type duo, began this piece while living in Spain, perhaps spurred to re-examine her own cultural traditions.

Hamlet, City Theatre, October 22 - November 15

Director Jeff Hinkle and the City Theatre cast led by Aaron Black as Hamlet give us a gripping up-tempo version of the famous events in Elsinore. Elapsed playing time from the first challenge on the battlements to Hamlet's dying gasp,
"The rest -- is silence" is just a little more than two and a half hours.

That fits the play well within the max bounds for today's young movie-going public and gives them the bonus of a break in the middle for snacks and bathroom. The nearly full house for opening night offered the encouraging prospect of a well attended four-week run to open City's fourth season.

It's a good ride, with some surprises along the way.

Aaron Black paints a two-speed Hamlet. From the first, alone or speaking to us directly in his monologues, Black establishes the prince's intelligence. His deft timing and effectively calibrated pauses show Hamlet's mind at work and establish a bond with the audience.

In company with any but Horatio or the player king, however, Black speeds up, provokes and antagonizes. His diction is precise but as his lines move toward rant, he seems to be less the master of his own thoughts. They burst forth in hectoring images.

This master class with nationally-renowned playwright Steven Dietz will focus on the "living play." Simply putting words and action onstage does not "activate" a play, so what narrative strategies bring a theatrical story to life? Steven Dietz will describe candid and tangible tools of the playwright's craft used to make a play move, change, and push forward. In short: come to life.

Steven Dietz is one of America's most widely produced playwrights. Since 1983, his more than 30 plays have been regularly produced regionally, off-Broadway and internationally. His latest plays Yankee Tavern and Becky's New Car will be among the most produced plays at local and regional theatres this coming season. Mr. Dietz divides his time between Seattle and Austin, where he is professor of playwriting at the University of Texas.

ABOUT AUSTIN SCRIPT WORKS Austin Script Works is a playwright-driven organization that seeks to promote the craft of dramatic writing and to protect the playwright's integrity by encouraging playwright initiative and harnessing collective potential. The Dramatis Personae series was initiated to provide area playwrights a place to experiment with their craft and to expand their careers. Austin Script Works is funded in part by the City of Austin through the Cultural Arts Division and by a grant from the Texas Commission on the Arts, and is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts, which believes that a great nation deserves great art, and by individual donors.

Adelina Anthony: Mastering Sex and Tortillas

October 25, 7 p.m., free admission

Alma Thomas Theater Southwestern University, Sarofim School of Fine Arts, Fine Arts Center 1001 East University Avenue Georgetown

Adelina Anthony identifies as a queer chicana/indigenous feminist woman and as a performer of multi-faceted identities. She creates a space for people of different identities to come together for performance art.
Her creative use of comedy makes the show fun and entertaining while discussing and raising consciousness around issues of race, gender, class and sexuality.

In 2001, "How to Become a Tortillera" and "Papi Duro: F.B.I. (Fearless Bucha Instigator)" premiered and became the foundation for Mastering Sex & Tortillas. Invited by Dr. Alicia Gaspar de Alba to ponder the question, "Why do you love being a Chicana lesbian?" Adelina responded with the high-femme & high-drama diva La Profesora Mama Chocha. This character comically deals with her own dyke drama, while teaching her class some valuable lessons on "tortillerismo." Adelina brought down da' house and received the first of many standing ovations as the closing performer at U.C.L.A.'s historical conference "Otro Corazón: Queering the Art of Aztlán."

Ten months later, Tongues (a Latina lesbian collective) invited Adelina to perform at one of their special events at Highways Performance Space in Santa Monica. Adelina used this opportunity to premiere the debonair, Papi Duro. This old-school butch examines the historical (albeit invisible) role of jotería during the Chicano Movement. Finally, these segments coalesced into Mastering Sex & Tortillas, a performance work exploring sexuality, gender, race/ethnicity and other interconnected issues from a queer Chicana perspective.

A few months later, Dr. Emma Perez, Dr. Scarlet Bowen, and Gregory Ramos made it possible for
Mastering Sex & Tortillas to participate in U.T.E.P.'s 2002 National Endowment for the Humanities Series. Over the years, Adelina work shopped the show and it went through many transformations. In 2003 the show went on hiatus as Adelina entered graduate school at Stanford University… but the show is BACK!

Tighter than Mama Chocha's mini skirt and as some Chicanas will say, "Hey, man, even MORE funnier than ever!!"
Part stand-up, part performance art, part teatro, and not to mention exciting and fresh improvisations--this unique show has lots of buttery Xicana flavor.
Mastering Sex & Tortillas is a hilarious and unflinching examination of Xicana/Latina lesbian sexuality.

The Life of Galileo

by Bertolt Brecht, translated by David Hare

Directed by Michelle Polgar
November 12-November 22, 2009
Mary Moody Northern Theatre
St Edward's University, 3001 South Congress Avenue

In 1609, in a small study in Padua, Galileo Galilei raises a telescope to the skies. What he finds there reverberates from the streets of Padua to the Vatican palace in Rome, sparking a debate that threatens his very survival. From master playwright Bertolt Brecht comes a theatrical discourse on reason, faith, power and the tension arising from scientific progress running headlong into age-old assumptions.

Featuring Equity guest artists David Stahl and David Stokey.

Ripped from the headlines of the Weekly World News, Batboy: The Musical is a cult hit about a half-boy, half-bat discovered in a cave. This campy, satirical twist on the modern musical comedy tells the amazing story of a strange boy with pointy ears, his struggle to find a place in a world that shuns him, and the love that can create both miracles and madness.

Hailed as “darkly funny, but curiously touching’, Bat Boy contains a driving, upbeat score, featuring rock, rap, and other musical styles. Director Kaitlin Hopkins was a Drama Desk nominee for her role in the 2001 New York production; fellow faculty member Jim Price was also in the original cast.

A “tea,” even though it can be formal, is nevertheless friendly and inviting. One does not go in “church” clothes nor with ceremonious manner; but in an informal and every-day spirit, to see one’s friends and be seen by them. A smaller room is preferable, too much space with too few people gives an effect of emptiness which always is suggestive of failure.

The Nerd
by Larry Shue
directed By Michael Johnson

November 6 - 21, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m.
10960 E. Crystal Falls Pkwy, Leander

Now an aspiring young architect in Terre Haute, Indiana, Willum Cubbert has often told his friends about the debt he owes to Rick Steadman, a fellow ex-GI whom he has never met but who saved his life after he was seriously wounded in Vietnam. He has written to Rick to say that, as long as he is alive, "you will have somebody on Earth who will do anything for you"—so Willum is delighted when Rick shows up unexpectedly at his apartment on the night of his thirty-fourth birthday party.

But his delight soon fades as it becomes apparent that Rick is a hopeless "nerd"—a bumbling oaf with no social sense, little intelligence and less tact. And Rick stays on and on, his continued presence among Willum and his friends leading to one uproarious incident after another, until the normally placid Willum finds himself contemplating violence—a dire development which, happily, is staved off by the surprising "twist" ending of the play.

Found on-line:

Breaking String Theater** presents
an Actors’ Equity Association Members Project Code Production…

The Cherry Orchard

A Comedy by Anton Pavlovich Chekhov

Lyubov Ranyevskaya went to Paris to escape her past; she returns to Russia to discover that her ancestral home, and her beloved cherry orchard, are about to disappear forever. In this haunting tale of love, loss, and human frailty, Lyubov must endure the unimaginable, and realizes that even as the axes fall on the trees, a new life is being born.

More than a century after it was written, Chekhov’s last and most beloved play still holds audiences spellbound with its unexpected majesty and dramatic power. Chekhov also finds comedy in our failures to live up to those ideals we consider sacred. As Breaking String theater artists, we hope most of all to bring Chekhov’s warmth and generosity of spirit to our audiences.

Some of Austin’s finest performers have come together to perform this new translation from the original Russian. Featuring a remarkable artistic ensemble with Babs George *, Dirk van Allen *, Bernadette Nason*, Ev Lunning *, Matt Radford, Nigel O’Hearn, Liz Fisher, Sarah Gay, Robert Matney, Robin Grace Thompson, Noel Gaulin, Maarouf Naboulsi, and Cody Chua.

The off-stage talent includes Graham Schmidt as director and translator, Adam Hilton providing first-class sound design, Rommel Sulit delivering a stunning set, Jen Rogers designing an exceptional lighting layout, and Buffy Manners beautifully costuming the cast.

November 5-December 5, Hyde Park Theatre

Sick is an uproarious look at a family of germ-ophobes who have severe allergies to everything from Cheez-Whiz and cleaning supplies to city air. As prisoners inside their vacuum-sealed home and garbed in non-allergic clothing, they live each day in terror that a stray mold spore or chemical will sneak into their lives. When Dad brings home one of his graduate students, the family’s fear crescendos– with chaotic comedic consequences.
