Connecticut native Reiss penned the work that takes aim at the residents of the "Nutmeg State." Vince J. Cardinal will direct the Dec. 1-10 run.
According to CRT, "I'm Connecticut is a love story about a young man who grew up in Simsbury now living in New York City and searching for love. Amid the anxieties of dating he begins to ask himself what a Nutmegger really is. If you’ve ever wondered about the identity of The Land of Steady Habits, be prepared for a hysterical surprise."
The organization is also planning mainstage productions of Thornton Wilder's Our Town (Oct. 6-16), Steven Svoboda's Odysseus D.O.A. (Feb. 23-March 4, 2012); and the Tony-winning Duncan Sheik-Steven Sater musical Spring Awakening (April 12-28, 2012).
The studio series will include Moliere's The Miser (Oct. 27-Nov. 6, 2011) and Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale (March 22-April 1, 2012).
