The mornings -- and evenings -- spent milking will end March 19 at the Currican Theatre. Jim Farmer's Morning Milking Evening Milking made it world premiere Nov. 3-21, 1999 at Irish Arts Theater and returned for a five performance run, beginning March 15. Farmer directs this staging.
Farmer's Milking follows the Deverales, a family of four falling apart on a Louisiana plantation in the heat of the 1950's South. While Cat, the pregnant daughter of strong but haunted Papa and fragile Mama, survives her marriage to the brutal, sexual Johnny-Lee, he grows closer to becoming a murderer.
A film composer whose movies have included "The Real Blonde," "Living in Oblivion," and "Johnny Suede," Farmer wrote the plays Yonder Window Breaks and I've Been Drunk for Three Days and I Have a Gun along with the musicals Frontier Halloween, Pistols and Stamens and When Existential Things Happen to Good People.
Jane Grenier and Trina Wilson return from the original cast with the addition of Brendan O'Malley and Brian Tom O'Connor.
Tickets are $15. The Currican Theatre is located at 154 West 29th Street. For reservations, call (212) 349-6619. -- By Christine Ehren
