EDGYREP READING:
Romance by David Mamet
The Toledo Club (14th Street at Madison)
Show Date: January 5, 2008
7:30pm
Experience staged readings from critically acclaimed playwrights who have the unique flair we like to call “edgy”. In “Romance,” David Mamet creates a world in microcosm in which shameless fawning, petty prejudices and sheer caprice hold sway, and the noble apparatus of law and order degenerates into riotous profanity. Call 419-243-9277 for tickets.

MAINSTAGE PLAY:
Harvey by Mary Chase
10th Street Stage

Show Dates: January 11 – 27, 2008 (various show times)
When Elwood P Dowd starts to introduce his imaginary friend, Harvey, a six-and-a-half-foot rabbit, to guests at a society party, his sister, Veta, has seen as much of his eccentric behavior as she can tolerate. She decides to have him committed to a sanitarium to spare her daughter, Myrtle Mae, and their family from future embarrassment. Problems arise when Veta herself is mistakenly assumed to be on the verge of lunacy when she explains to doctors that years of living with Elwood’s hallucination have caused her to see Harvey also!
Tickets are $18 and are available by calling 419-243-9277 or order online at toledorep.org.
AUDITIONS: Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
10th Street Stage
January 19, 2008 at 1:00pm
By Edward Albee

Featuring former Rep Artistic Director, Paul Causman
Show Dates: March 14 – 30, 2008

George and Martha care deeply for each other, but events have turned their marriage into a nasty battle between two disenchanted, cynical enemies. If that weren’t bad enough, they drag another couple, Honey and Nick, into their sordid dispute. They become pawns in the battle, transformed into an audience to witness humiliation, into levers for creating jealousy, and into a means for expressing their own sides of their mutual story – and eventually no secret is safe.
Call 419-243-9277 for more information and audition requirements

SPECIAL BENEFIT PERFORMANCE: Master Class
Performing Arts Center at Owens Community College

By Terrence McNally
Featuring current Artistic Director, Gloria Moulopoulos
Saturday, February 9, 2008
Reception at 7 p.m., performance at 8 p.m., dessert following

Opera legend Maria Callas is teaching a master class in front of an audience (the play-goers in attendance). Focusing on one hopeful student at a time, she’s glamorous, commanding, larger than life – and drop-dead funny. What starts as a class becomes a platform for Callas. She glories in her own career, dabbles in opera dish and flat-out seduces the audience. Her roller coaster of emotions includes a beautiful speech about the sacrifices we must make in the name of art.

Reception, Performance, Dessert $75
Performance and Dessert $25

Tickets available from the Owens box office or by calling: 567-661-2787.

EDGYREP READING: Necessary Targets
Society Gallery
425 Jefferson (Old Historic Secor Hotel) The performance will be on the first floor.

By Eve Ensler
Show Date: February 23, 2008 at 7:30pm
Experience staged readings from critically acclaimed playwrights who have the unique flair we like to call “edgy”. In Eve Ensler’s “Necessary Targets,” a Park Avenue psychiatrist and an ambitious young writer travel to Bosnia to help women refugees confront their memories of war. Based on interviews conducted by Eve Ensler with numerous women who survived the civil war in the former Yugoslavia, Necessary Targets is a timely reminder of how America struggles to define its relationship to the rest of the world. Call 419-243-9277 for tickets.
