News   Cape Cod's Provincetown Rep Presents U.S. Premiere of Post 9/11 Play, Crazy Eyes May 26
 
The Provincetown Repertory Theatre, the Equity troupe in residence at The Provincetown Theater in Massachusetts, presents the first U.S. production of John Buffalo Mailer's Crazy Eyes May 26-June 12.

The play, which premiered in Greece in March, is the opening production of the 10th anniversary season of the Rep in Provincetown.

Paul Eckstein directs Crazy Eyes, about "an actor, an AIDS researcher, a Wall Street guy, a bag of white powder and a Palestinian-American who owns a 99-cent store." It's set in October 2001 in Park Slope, Brooklyn.

The cast includes PJ Sosko, Dana Watkins, Eve Kagan and Gian-Murray Gianino. Scenic design is by Scott White, lighting design is by Mark Lanks and costume design is by Carol Sherry.

The Rep is lead by artistic director Lynda Sturner.

Provincetown Theater is at 238 Bradford Street in Provincetown, MA, the resort town that was a center of artistic and literary life in the first 20 years of the 20th century. Eugene O'Neill's early works were presented in a small wharf theatre in the area in 1916. The collaborators relocated to Greenwich Village and presented groundbreaking work there for several years years. All shows are at 8 PM. Tickets are $28 and are available at The Provincetown Theater box office, or by calling PtownTix at (508) 487-9793 or online at www.ptowntix.com.

The Provincetown Theater is Provincetown's first playhouse in over 25 years. Formerly the site of the old Provincetown Mechanic's Building at 238 Bradford Street, the theatre opened in 2004 and houses two resident theatre companies: The Provincetown Theatre Company (PTC), a community-based theatre company, and the Provincetown Repertory Theatre (Rep), a professional theatre operating under arrangement with Actors' Equity Association. In addition to being a permanent home for the PTC and REP, the theater offers performance and meeting space for other community, business and performing arts organizations on Cape Cod and beyond.
