TheatreSquared will be moving into their brand new home next season, but not before one last hurrah at their old spot.
That last hurrah, as it happens, kicks off this week, when the local company kicks off a run of their final show at their original Nadine Baum Studios location with New York Times Critics’ Pick, The Legend of Georgia McBride.
From the sounds of it, T2 is going out of their old space with a fun one.
From the synopsis of the new show:
Set in Panama City Beach in Florida’s panhandle, The Legend of Georgia McBride’s Casey is young, broke, nine months from fatherhood, and impersonating Elvis at a run-down bar. But when the bar owner hires a drag show to attract more customers, Casey is out of a job—or is he? Filled with snappy zingers, music, humor—and plenty of sequins—this acclaimed new comedy confirms that the path to prosperity and fulfillment may sometimes take an unexpected star turn.
The show opens on Wednesday, May 1, and is set to run through June 2. Performances are scheduled each Tuesday-Friday at 7:30 p.m., on Saturdays at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., and on Sunday at 2 p.m.
“This play has a joyous spirit, keen wit, and a big heart,” artistic director Bob Ford said of the new production. “It’s the perfect story to help us say a proper goodbye to our first home—full of generosity, hope, and exploding confetti cannons.”
Tickets to the show range from $17-48, and are on sale now. Also, through T2’s Lights Up! For Access program, supported by the Walmart Foundation, SNAP benefit recipients can purchase $5 tickets, and patrons under the age of 30 can purchase $10 tickets.
