Redwood curtain theater continues his Zoom performances live from previous pieces with one of his best commented and most memorable productions, that of David Lindsay-Abaire Good people, this Sunday, June 20 at 6:00 p.m. (donation of $ 5 per guest).
Originally presented in 2017 at the Redwood Curtain Theater, Good people – nominated for the 2011 Tony Award for Best Play and Best Leading Actress in a Play (with Frances McDormand winning the latter) – is a play about a South Boston neighborhood that came out and didn’t made ; the implications of what that means and the moral dilemmas the characters face as a result of it. For this one-night-only performance, director Cassandra Hesseltine returns to helm the original cast: Redwood Curtain co-founder Peggy Metzger as Margie Walsh, Redwood veterans Curtain Craig Benson, Pamela Long and Susan Abbey – with Kenya Uhuru and Matthew Atkins completes the highly skilled cast.
If you’re curious about how live theater translates to Zoom, you’ll probably be surprised. Step-by-step zoom readings can be more immersive and engaging than you think. The intimate setting allows for a deeper digestion of the dialogue that might otherwise be softened by the multisensory impact of the larger ensemble, props, and in-person vibe of a theater. And with lyrics by a Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright and a cast like it, it’s a Zoom theater experience you can’t miss.
