When their father goes missing, the huge, sprawling and completely dysfunctional family reunites and sparks fly. "Fiercely funny and bitingly sad," AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY promises to leave you "laughing and wondering, shuddering and smiling, long after the house lights come back on." Winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award.
The Kavinoky production includes a virtual "who's who" of Buffalo theatre: including Saul Elkin, Sheila McCarthy, Eileen Dugan, Tim Newell, Norman Sham, Kelli Bocock-Natale, Kristen Tripp-Kelley, Brian Riggs, Kelly Meg Brennan, Steve Jakiel, Steve Copps, Kay Kerimian, and Zoe Appler. The production is directed by Robert Waterhouse with the stellar design team consisting of David King (set), Brian and Chris Cavanagh (lights), Tom Makar (sound), Dixon Reynolds (costumes), and Loraine O'Donnell (properties.) Approximate running time, including intermissions, is three hours.
This season’s offerings have all won multiple accolades including Tonys, Critics, and Drama Desk Awards and Pulitzer Prizes. It’s a season that contains probably the funniest play ever written (Noises Off) (and yes, I know we have done it before, but this time we promise to get it right...again!!); a tribute to the Dickens’ bicentennial in a musical version of his final and unfinished novel (The Mystery Of Edwin Drood) in which you, the audience get to choose from multiple possible endings (and we have to rehearse them all!); a brand new Tony nominee comedy just off a smash Broadway run (Other Desert Cities...in which I’ll attempt my version of Greg House’s American accent!); the second-longest-running Off-Broadway musical ever (I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change) for some summer fun, and a play the critics have called “probably the most exciting play Broadway has seen in years” (the Pulitzer Prize-winning August: Osage County).
This is an incredibly demanding line-up for a small theatre, but we are confident we will do it justice. To accommodate the complex production demands we have extended our playing season somewhat and altered some show times (be careful and check!) This will enable us to improve our production values and our performances and will give you a more enjoyable experience.
