The Star Ledger reports that the New Jersey theatre will break ground for its new home Oct. 22. Designed by New York-based Hardy Holzman Pfeiffer, the theatre complex — priced at $15 million — will house two theatres: a 300-seat space and an open studio. Two River Theatre Company's executive producer and co-founder Robert M. Rechnitz expects the complex to open sometime between Nov. 2004 and Feb. 2005. The company's current, temporary home is the Algonquin Arts Center, located at 171 Main Street in Manasquan, N.J. The new theatre will be found on Bridge Avenue in Red Bank, N.J.
The 2003-2004 Two River season includes Georges Bizet's The Tragedy of Carmen (Oct. 2-19), Mike Leigh's Abigail's Party (Jan. 15-Feb. 1, 2004), August Strindberg's Miss Julie (March 18-April 4) and David Mamet's A Life in the Theatre (May 6-23).
