Williams' Ten Blocks on the Camino Real Begins Performances Off-Broadway Jan. 14
14 Jan 2009
The Target Margin Theater production of the Tennessee Williams one-act 10 Blocks on the Camino Real begins performances Off-Broadway at the Ohio Theater Jan. 14.
Initially workshopped by Elia Kazan at the Actors Studio in 1948, 10 Blocks on the Camino Real is the precursor to what ultimately became Williams' Camino Real.
Target Margin artistic director David Herskovits directs the production — described as a "dreamlike meditation on alienation, beauty and death" — that officially opens Jan. 18 and runs through Jan. 31 at the Ohio Theater.
Ten Blocks features Purva Bedi (CSC's Old Comedy), Satya Bhabha (King of Shadows), Curt Hostetter (Hamlet), McKenna Kerrigan, Dara Seitzman (Iron Curtain) and Raphael Nash Thompson (Edward the Second).
Designing the production are Lenore Doxsee (set and lighting), Asta Bennie Hostetter (costumes) and Jim "Sneaky" Breitmeier (sound) with musical direction by David Rosenmeyer.
For tickets and further information phone (212) 352-3101 or visit www.targetmargin.org.
The Ohio Theater is located at 66 Wooster Street in Manhattan.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
