Apr 30, 2012
Writers' Theatre, under the direction of Artistic Director Michael Halberstam and Executive Director Kathryn M. Lipuma, concludes its 20th Anniversary Season with The Blonde, the Brunette and the Vengeful Redhead by Robert Hewett, directed by Joseph Hanreddy, and featuring Deborah Staples. The production runs May 22 - July 29, 2012 at Writers' Theatre, 664 Vernon Avenue in Glencoe. The Press Openings are Wednesday, May 30 and Thursday, May 31, 2012 at 7:30 p.m.
Thwarted housewife Rhonda Russell loses herself in a heated moment of passion, setting into motion an unbelievable series of events that ripple through the lives of everyone around her. One performer intricately weaves together the many different sides of Rhonda's story with engrossing narrative, wit and compassion. An international hit, The Blonde, the Brunette and the Vengeful Redhead is a surprising and touching tale of loss and ultimate redemption.
"Robert Hewett's play was crafted in order to showcase the talents of a marvelous actress and Writers' Theatre is very lucky to be presenting this work with the considerable talents of Deborah Staples at its center. Having previously performed the play to great acclaim at Milwaukee Repertory, Deborah and the Rep's former artistic director Joseph Hanreddy reunite in Glencoe to stage an all new production of this perfect celebration of word and artist in the intimate confines of our bookstore venue," comments Artistic Director Michael Halberstam.
The Blonde, the Brunette and the Vengeful Redhead features Deborah Staples as Rhonda Russell. The designers are Linda Buchanan (scenic), Keith Parham (lighting), Martha Hally (costumes), Barry Funderberg (sound) and Nick Heggestad (properties).
