The Seeing Place Theater, known for intensely intimate ensemble work, announces casting for August Strindberg's haunting classic about status, sex and servitude: MISS JULIE.
This ensemble cast features Robert N. King (Award Winning Halfrican-American) as Jean, Marnie Klar (Fringe NYC: Fleet Week, The Musical) as Christine, and Gabrielle Loneck (Regional: A Midsummer Night's Dream) as Julie. Erin Cronican (The Seeing Place's Love Song) directs this play.
About MISS JULIE: A flirtation between a young woman and her father's servant becomes a dance of power, dreams and violence swirling out of control. Written 125 years ago but deeply resonant today, Miss Julie is a psycho-sexual drama filled with obsession, ambition and manipulation, and remains August Strindberg's most compelling work.
The show has a limited engagement March 3-12, 2013 (Sun 7pm, Mon 6pm & 9pm, Tue 7pm) at The Seeing Place @ATA's Sargent Theater, 314 W 54th St, 4th Floor. Tickets are just $12 and are available by calling SmartTix at (212)868-4444 and at www.smarttix.com. For more information visit www.seeingplacetheater.com.
The Seeing Place Theater is an actor-driven ensemble known for its intense and intimate work - with ticket prices anyone can afford. Since 2009, we've been forcefully committed to:
THE ACTOR'S PROCESS: Through robust table work and improvisation, we focus on honoring the actor's artistry in creating a character and building a story, which extends from rehearsal into performance. It's a pro-actor philosophy, and it's rare in today's market.
ORGANIC STORYTELLING: Unlike other companies, we do not cement our choices in advance. Instead, what audiences get to see is a group of actors "in the moment" - working off one another to tell a fresh story that is never the same night to night.
COMMUNITY VALUE: We produce our shows in Hell's Kitchen in the heart of midtown Manhattan, a community hungry for strong, independent theater to combat the high priced, commercial offerings of Broadway. We've been awed by the positive response by critics & audiences about the unique, quality work we've been able to share at a price point audiences can afford - $12 a ticket.
