The House of Bernarda Alba
At long last it opens! My production of The House of Bernarda Alba, written by Federico Lorca and Adapted by the amazing Emily Mann, opens this weekend. If you happen to be in the Allentown, PA area, please stop in and take a look! It's a damn fine production with some pretty amazing work done by the actresses on stage, if I do say so myself!
OK... so our production doesn't feature Phylicia Rashad or Daphne Rubin-Vega, and it's not the World Premiere of a musical version of the Lorca show (STILL not quite sure how that will fly... oh, well...) On the plus side, it runs a very tidy 1.5 hours, and tickets will set you back $15, as opposed to $75.00 for the NYC production. Tell ya' what... if you mention that the FleshPresser sent you, I might just buy you a drink after the show!
As an enticement, I've posted some photos from the show taken this evening at our final Invited Dress Preview - enjoy! Click on the image to enlarge.

Only $15 and a drink after the show??
Damn, that's almost worth the $300 plane fare from SoCal to PA.
Congratulations on your opening... and I must say, from the pictures, that lighting design does look pretty sweet!

Meghan - if you spent the money, I'd make sure that drink was a BIG one! :) Of course, maybe it's better to wait for a few more months for that big drink! :)
B-Luv! - I am thrilled that you're reading! Are we ever going to find a time to claim that dinner?
Lizzi - tomorrow or Saturday sounds great - sorry about the headache.
