ABOUT THE SHOW:
CONVERSATIONS WITH AN AVERAGE JOE took a year break after premiering Off-Broadway and is heading back to the Off-Broadway stage for another run, with the final goal being a Broadway premiere. Producers and other professionals are highly interested in the new rendition of this piece, and it is going to be a highly publicized play. CONVERSATIONS is comprised of all true stories and facts about corrupt politicians and corporations and how, because of their quest for greed and power, us average Joe's and Jane's are stuck in a situation of diminished liberties and less money in our pockets. Set in a bar, it’s frantic, fun, and fast-paced. Producers, directors and other theatre professionals who have seen it on stage and in rehearsals are in agreement that, "it is probably the toughest 10-15 minutes of fast-paced interrupting dialogue that an actor will face, but they, and the audience, will receive its reward."
CONVERSATIONS is open-ended, non-equity, and non-profit. Rehearsals are unpaid. Once Off-Broadway, cast will be splitting the profits and making a guaranteed minimum of $50 a show. If Broadway premiere is made, Equity pay.
ALL ROLES WILL BE DOUBLE CAST - Some roles have been filled, however with interest resumes will be held on file for future consideration.
