A Life in the Theatre

2/7/2015

Location: The Algonquin Arts Theatre, 173 Main Street, Manasquan, NJ

Description: Pulitzer Prize Winner David Mamet's
A Life in the Theatre
Produced by Walnut Street Theatre

February 7 - February 8

Premium: $41 (Adults), $38 (Seniors), $32 (Students)
Regular: $34 (Adults), $31 (Seniors), $25 (Students)
Discounts for groups of 12 or more

Saturday, February 7 at 8:00 pm
Sunday, February 8 at 3:00 pm

A funny and touching behind-the-scenes peek at the challenge of actors battling to share both the spotlight and a dressing room, A Life in the Theatre follows two actors in a repertory company: Robert, an older experienced performer and John, a newcomer. John at first welcomes Robert's guidance, but soon overshadows his mentor. From rehearsals to reprisals, from ego trips to acting tips, the play gives a glimpse into the complex relationship that develops as the torch is passed from one generation to the next - a passing that wavers from love and mutual respect to impatience and resentment.

David Mamet is the Pulitzer Prize author of some of the most important plays of our time, including American Buffalo, Glengarry Glen Ross, Oleanna, and Speed-the-Plow. He was inspired to write A Life in the Theatre by his own experiences backstage as an actor. The New Yorker declared, "Mr. Mamet has written—in gentle ridicule; in jokes, broad and tiny; and in comedy, high and low-a love letter to the theatre. It is quite a feat, and he has pulled it off." A Life in the Theatre is a delightful theatrical experience for anyone who loves actors and the theater.


About Walnut Street Theatre

Founded in 1809, Walnut Street Theatre is the oldest continuously operating theatre in the United States. For more than 200 years, this venerable institution has stood the test of time to become a staple of Philadelphia's, and for that matter, America's cultural community. Over the past two centuries the Walnut's landmark theatre has been graced by some of America's most legendary performers including Ethel Barrymore, Marlon Brando, Sidney Poitier, Helen Hayes and Kathryn Hepburn. Its grand stage has housed a remarkably wide range of entertainment and national events, including circus, opera, vaudeville, lectures, music, dance, motion pictures, live theatre and even the first televised Presidential Debate between Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter. A Life in the Theater marks Walnut Street's fifth national tour, following The Glass Menagerie, Proof, Around the World in 80 Days and Driving Miss Daisy.

featuring Joel Chasnoff
Plus Moody McCarthy and Jon Fisch

Saturday, February 14th at 8:00pm

Tickets: $25


Joel Chasnoff

Joel Chasnoff is not your grandfather's Jewish comedian. Joel is clever. Hip. Daring and edgy, yet 100% clean. Joel performs in North America, Europe, and Israel, including the Montreal Comedy Festival, Israeli late-night TV, multiple appearances on NPR and PBS.. and counting. In 2010, Simon and Schuster published The 188th Crybaby Brigade, Joel's comedic memoir about his service in the Israeli Army. Kirkus Reviews called Crybaby Brigade, "Horrifyingly hilarious." The film is currently in production at Paramount. In 2013, Joel co-authored the cookbook Balaboosta with Israeli chef and Chopped! Champion Einat Admony. Joel also writes extensively about the plight of IDF Lone Soldiers, including highly-acclaimed editorials in the Washington Post and Jewish Week. His writing has been featured in the Forward, The Big Book of Jewish Humor - 25th Anniversary Edition, and The Idiot's Guide to Jokes. A portion of proceeds from Joel's comedy and book sales is donated to his foundation, Project Elijah.


Jon Fisch

Jon has appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman, has been featured in Maxim Magazine, and was the host of the widely popular podcast, "In the Tank". A prolific monologist with universal appeal, Jon focuses on the idiosyncrasies of city living. Shortly after moving to NYC from his native Boston, he was chosen as one of Comedy Central's Fresh Faces of Comedy and named one of Back Stage Magazine's 10 Standout Stand-ups. His appearance on Last Comic Standing 4 - where he was the New York City Capital One Audience Favorite - earned him wide recognition and a new legion of fans. His other TV appearances include Comedy Central's Premium Blend, VH1, Celebrity Apprentice, and 3 Men and a Chick Flick on the WE Network where he served as a host. Interestingly, the credit people seem most impressed by was that he was handpicked to open for Jerry Seinfeld in 2009 at Gotham Comedy Club.


Moody McCarthy

Moody McCarthy is a stand-up comedian who lives in New York with his wife and step-dog. Moody has made numerous TV appearances, highlighted by scintillating sets on The Late Show with David Letterman and Jimmy Kimmel Live. Moody was born "Matthew" in Syracuse, NY, into a boisterous household with six siblings. (Somebody had to get a nickname, and it was him.) Moody began doing comedy in 1992 after his music and astronaut careers stalled. He soon distinguished himself as an original and was hired by Syracuse's top radio show to cover sports and write jokes, two of his loves. After six years of performing regionally Moody traded square footage for more comedy opportunities and moved to New York City. This millennium has been good to Moody: he's also been featured on Last Comic Standing; Star Search (the 2003 reboot); America's Got Talent; and Gotham Comedy Live. He's a regular at some of the best clubs in the land, and has performed on three continents.

Description: LeLand Gantt in
Rhapsody in Black
Directed by Estelle Parsons

Friday, February 20 • 8 p.m.

All Seats: $18
Discounts for groups of 12 or more.

Written and performed by LeLand Gantt and developed at NYC's Actors Studio with Academy Award-winner Estelle Parsons, Rhapsody in Black is a one man show that explores LeLand's personal journey to understand and eventually transcend racism in America. We follow his spellbinding life story -- from an underprivileged childhood in the ghettos of McKeesport, Pennsylvania to teenage experiments with crime and drugs to scholastic achievement and an acting career that land adult LeLand in situations where he is virtually the only African-American in the room. How he manages to cope with the various psychological effects of consistently being marked The Other is recounted in remarkable and exquisitely moving detail, guaranteed to leave lasting impressions. Multiple elements combine to give Rhapsody its super-powered emotional punch, many of them concentrated in the incredible persona of its star.

Charming, self-deprecatingly funny, linguistically awesome, LeLand Gantt imbues every word that falls from his mouth with all the passion and poignancy of a preacher speaking the Gospel. This is partly because he's confronting heavy subjects, but mostly because he believes so firmly in his message that it's impossible for it to emerge any other way. In his own words; "Objective truth strikes a chord."

Intermission: No
Runtime: 90 minutes

This New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players production is your chance to get carried away by Pirates. Join the band of swashbuckling buccaneers, bumbling British bobbies, frolicsome Victorian maidens, and the delightfully dotty "model of a modern Major-General" for a rollicking romp over the rocky coast of Cornwall. This exuberant musical theater masterpiece, directed and conducted by Albert Bergeret with choreography by Bill Fabris, is performed in its original format. The rich sounds of full orchestra, chorus, and legitimate vocal soloists resonate with classic elegance and power while the company's vibrancy, energy and contemporary sense of humor keep the show alive and exciting to a modern audience. The Pirates of Penzance - they'll steal your heart away!
