Boomerang Theatre Company Announces 10th Anniversary Season

News   Boomerang Theatre Company Announces 10th Anniversary Season The work of Tennessee Williams, Christopher Thomasson and a world premiere by Colin McKenna will be part of the Boomerang Theatre Company's 10th anniversary season.

The three productions, which will be presented in rotating repertory, include Summer and Smoke, Parking Lot Lonely Heart and Native Speech.

The season gets underway Nov. 13 with Tennessee William's Summer and Smoke. Cailin Heffernan will direct the Mississippi-set romantic drama that pits the spiritual against the sexual. Summer and Smoke runs through Dec. 14.

Colin McKenna's world premiere of Parking Lot Lonely Heart will be staged by Philip Emeott from Nov. 15-Dec. 20. "For hard-drinking Mickey, getting hit by a city bus and almost dying made him a millionaire with a supposed new lease on life. When his money is unable to keep his drug abusing daughter Emma off the streets, Mickey seeks salvation and forgiveness for the wrongdoings of his past by trying to rent the heart of an escort he found in the yellow pages named Louise."

Native Speech, penned by Eric Overmyer, will be the final work, which will begin performances Nov. 20. Christopher Thomasson directs the work about a futuristic DJ "with a strong pulse but a weak signal. He riffs on the truth with verbal virtuosity, with primal passion, with ambidextrous dexterity, with a sexy scream...but when his visions begin to manifest themselves in sinister ways, is he being played by darker forces? Or are his words creating a dangerous truth?" Native Speech runs through Dec. 21.

The creative team for the Boomerang season includes Cheryl McCarron (costume design), Nikki Black (set design), Megan Henninger (sound design) and Carrie Brewer (fight direction). The tenth anniversary Boomerang season will take place at CenterStage/NY, located 48 West 21st Street in Manhattan. Tickets are available by phoning (212) 501-4069, or by visiting BoomerangTheatre.
