Up Next at Transport Group: THE PATSY and JONAS
Long time no post! LYSISTRATA JONES’ run is over, and all of us over at Transport couldn’t be happier with how it went. It was a blast of a show, and we all hope to see more of it in the future!
On a more recent note, tickets are on sale now for our newest show, opening on Friday, July 15th at The Duke on 42nd . THE PATSY and JONAS are two new pieces by Obie Award winner and all around theatre rock star David Greenspan. THE PATSY is a new adaptation of an old play from the 1920s by Barry Conners; an old fashioned living room comedy about Patricia, the less beautiful and less loved member of a loud and dramatic family, and her search for love. The twist is that all 8 parts that appear in the adaptation are played by David. It is incredible to see him switch seamlessly from one character to another, in a whirlwind performance that somehow remains sweet and funny, and a little bit touching.
JONAS is a world premiere of a new monologue, written and performed by David. It was inspired by the character that he played in The Royal Wedding at Manhattan Theatre Club in 2009, and chronicles David’s experience of living inside that character. It is an absolutely stunning piece, that plays with language in a new and creative way. It is truly a once in a lifetime experience to see David perform it.
Be sure to stay tuned to this blog for videos and pictures coming this week, including an exclusive interview with both David and director Jack Cummings III on the process of creating both pieces. And don’t forget to order your tickets at The Duke on 42nd website!
