Christmas in July
Chinglish is wrapping up this week, and with its final performance this Sunday night, our 2010/2011 season comes to a close. (Above: Chinglish's Johnny Wu and Jennifer Lim, waving goodbye to us. Best of luck, guys! We'll miss you. Photo by Eric Y. Exit.) In a few short weeks Red will start rehearsals in the Healy before taking over the Albert with its ferocious splatterings of red paint and roaring Rothkoisms, followed New Stages Amplified in the Owen, and, soon after that, A Christmas Carol.
Yes, A Christmas Carol. It’s the height of summer and we’re already gearing up for our annual wintertime adventure. A few changes are in store for us this season—after a year-long hiatus, Larry Yando will return as everybody’s favorite malcontent, Ebenezer Scrooge, and this season’s show will be directed by Artistic Associate Steve Scott. Steve has directed A Christmas Carol in the past, but not for many many years, so we’re excited to see what he has in store for us! Tickets for groups are on sale now; tickets for the general public are available Friday, August 19.
