News   Squire's To Whom It May Concern Opens Off-Broadway March 25 The war in Afghanistan inspired Aurin Squire's To Whom It May Concern, which officially opens Off-Broadway at the Arclight Theatre March 25.

Matt Alford, Israel Gutierrez, Carmelo Ferro and Nicholas Reilly star in the production under the direction of David Gaard. To Whom It May Concern began performances March 19 and will run through April 19.

Squire's work, according to press notes, "addresses the effects of America's 'peace keeping mission' in Afghanistan as it focuses on the long distance communication between a battle-scarred young marine stationed in Kabul and an emotionally out of control adolescent boy in Abilene Kansas. The boy attracts the marine's attention by deciding to pretend that he is an 18-year-old female with a crush after having read an article about the soldier's heroic activities in a local paper. They begin a cyber romance that is temporarily shattered when the marine decides to pay a visit to 'the girl' of his dreams."

Designing To Whom It May Concern are Bruce Eyster (set design), Michele Reisch (costume design) and Erich Loetterle (lighting design).

Squire, a playwright and freelance reporter, is also the author of Defacing Michael Jackson and Nueva Cancion. He also writes "Bodega Avenue," an online cartoon about his Brooklyn neighbors.

The Arclight Theatre is located in Manhattan at 152 West 71st Street. Tickets are available by calling (212) 352-3101 or (866) 811-4111.
