Theatre Breaking Through Barriers celebrates its 40th anniversary season with the world premiere of Public Servant by Bekah Brunstetter (The Cake, cowriter and producer of NBC's Emmy-winning This Is Us, and the new TV series based on the musical Oklahoma!). In Public Servant, a newly elected county commissioner, with his daughter by his side, is going to change the world — or at least his little corner of it. He meets a world-weary woman who only needs a city inspector to sign off on some paperwork — yet, no action. She turns to the commissioner for help with this simple request. But in politics, is anything ever simple?
Public Servant is directed by Geordie Broadwater and stars Christine Bruno (Screw You, Jimmy Choo!, TBTB's Still More Of Our Parts), Chris Henry Coffey (Joe DiMaggio in Bronx Bombers on Broadway, David Schwimmer's Trust), and Anna Lentz (Humana Festival, Actors Theatre of Louisville).
