The show is being staged at the Allens Lane Playhouse, a theatre which has been putting on shows for local audiences down there since 1953. The production is being directed by T. Patrick Ryan, who initially heard about the play through the filmed version of WTC VIEW which was released in 2006, starring Michael Urie from UGLY BETTY. He he been a real advocate for the show, making his case there over the last few years. It's so great that his dedication to this play finally coming to fruition.
The show opens a month from now, on March 11th and runs through the 26th. I will be going to see this new production on the 19th and will be at the theater for a discussion of the play afterwards. I'm very excited to see the show is getting produced again and hope this is the first of many regional productions of the show. So if you know any folks in the Philly area, spread the word. And there may be some big news of a possible New York City production soon.....stay tuned!
