Susan Miller's 20th Century Blues to Have New York City Premiere
Susan Miller's 20th Century Blues will receive its New York premiere beginning November 12 at the Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre at the Pershing Square Signature Center. Produced by Lida Orzeck and Eva Price, the work will be directed by Emily Mann and run through January 28.
The play is described as follows: "A reunion. An argument. A Ted Talk. Emotional mutiny. And a bond that connects four women who meet once a year for a photo shoot, chronicling their changing (and aging) selves as they navigate through love, careers, children, and major world events. But, when these private photographs have the potential to go public, their relationships are tested, forcing the women to confront who they are, what they’ve become, and how they’ll deal with whatever lies ahead."
The production will feature scenic design and projection design by Beowulf Boritt, costumes by Jennifer von Mayrhauser, lighting by Jeff Croiter, and sound by Darron L. West.
Casting will be announced in the coming months.
