Edith, Edith, Everywhere

21 Feb

EDITH RichmondThere are a few productions of Edith Can Shoot Things and Hit Them happening across the U.S. in the coming months. First up is Stage B Theatre Company’s production in Richmond, VA, which opens this Saturday, February 23rd.

ConfettiTheatre Confetti in Philadelphia, PA is next with a production of the play starting on March 7th. I’ll be down in Philly for the opening night party on March 8th and for a couple of talkbacks after the Saturday and Sunday performances on the 9th and 10th. Come see the show and say hello, if you’re around!

Later in March, Seattle Public Theater is opening a production of Edith on March 28, rounding out our gunslinger’s springtime fun.

If you’re in Richmond, Philadelphia, or Seattle, go see the show! And feel free to let me know what you thought by commenting here or by sending a message to info@areypamatmat.com. Obviously, I can’t be involved with most productions of the play at this point, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t curious as to how it was being received.

    Rey, This is Bruce Cohen from the Actor’s Express Theatre Board of Directors. I’m enjoying reading your posts and am just curious how the different productions of “Edith” compare in your opinion and the thinks that you like more or less. Care to share your thoughts?

      Hey, Bruce! How have you been? I haven’t really seen any since the end of the rolling world premiere, but each one has been so different. For example, the Actors Express production was the most realistic, New Theatre was the most comedic, Mu Performing Arts employed the most magical staging, and Actors’ Theatre was the most emotionally intense. In every case the production seemed to suit the audience viewing it the most. I’m not one of those playwrights who think there’s a perfect version (obviously, I have opinions on when things are really working or not), so I’ve enjoyed them all. Mostly, I just hope people have a good time putting up and watching the play.

    I loved Edith!!!!!!! I saw it last night and will be reviewing it for Seattle Gay News (that comes out on Fridays and posts to the internet latish Friday or Saturday). The players here were amazing, but I “heard” the script and the dialogue is so intense and the whole play is on the page. It’s a totally quirky subject matter…not that teens taking care of themselves is so untrue, just not the usual theatrical subject…and the teens are smart and caring and realistic. I think you would love to see this production if you could get out to Seattle.
