The Thunder Mountain Theatre Project Season 2 has announced two plays it will perform from Jan. 28 to Feb. 15 in the Repertory at the Old Elks Hall. The scheduled productions include "Shakespeare's R&J," adapted by Joe Calarco and directed by Flordelino Lagundino, and "Dying City," written by Christopher Shinn and directed by Ryan Conarro.
"R&J" is an all-male adaptation of Shakespeare's masterpiece in which four young men perform a secret "Romeo and Juliet," sweeping them away from the strict roles they are forced to play in society. The play will feature Enrique Bravo, Ryan Conarro, Lucas Hoiland and Ryan Tresser.
"Dying City" was named one of the Ten Best Plays of 2007 by The New York Times and was a finalist for the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for drama. Also hailed by the New York Observer as one of the finest new American plays, "Dying City" examines the cost of war on the loved ones left behind. A year after her husband's death in Iraq, Kelly, a young therapist, confronts his identical twin brother, who shows up at her apartment unannounced.
The theater group is also looking for donations of Alaska Airlines miles to help bring one of the artists to Juneau. If you are able to donate miles, contact Flordelino Lagundino at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (917) 371-8916.
