News   New Dudzick Comedy and Vertical Hour Are on Buffalo Studio Arena's Slate
 
Studio Arena Theatre will offer David Hare's recent Broadway play The Vertical Hour and the world premiere of Tom Dudzick's comedy, Don't Talk to the Actors, in its 2007-08 season.

Kathleen Gaffney, Studio Arena CEO and artistic director, revealed the new season in a letter to subscribers (and potential subscribers).

Buffalo playwright Dudzick penned the hugely popular Studio Arena (and regional) Over the Tavern trilogy. His new play, opening the 2007-08 season, concerns "a novice playwright, two fading TV stars and an assortment of theatre types" attempting to create a Broadway hit. Performances will play Sept. 11-30.

The Vertical Hour, Hare's topical play about a woman sparring with her lover's father over the issue of the Iraq War, recently ended a limited world premiere engagement on Broadway. A resident staging will play Studio Arena March 11-30, 2008.

The season will also include Bat Boy: The Musical, a co-production with MusicalFare Theatre (Oct. 23-Nov. 11); A.R. Gurney's "love letter to Buffalo wrapped inside a Christmas card," the 1946-set Indian Blood (Dec. 4-23); To Kill a Mockingbird (Jan. 29-Feb. 22, 2008); plus a musical to be announced (April 22-May 11, 2008).
