O'Connor Will Head Downtown with Morales' The Silent Concerto

News   O'Connor Will Head Downtown with Morales' The Silent Concerto
Downtown favorite Susan Louise O'Connor will star in Alejandro Morales' The Silent Concerto at the newly renamed 14th Street Theater.

Packawallop Productions and The Hypothetical Theater Company present a new production of the 2005 FringeNYC award winner. Scott Ebersold (Best Director winner at FringeNYC 2005) returns to stage the work.

Previews will begin Jan. 25, 2007, toward a Jan. 29 opening for a run through Feb. 17.

The Silent Concerto follows the "tangled relationship between three lifelong friends," according to show materials. "One is a tragic ingenue trapped inside the body of a chain-smoking character actress, one is a self-tortured artist and the third is a bon-vivant who's had one too many martinis. Caught inside a play that cannot progress past the first scene, the threesome makes repeated attempts to reach the longed for curtain call. Can they ever escape the drama they've made for themselves?"

O'Connor reprises the role she created opposite Drew Hirshfield and Julian Stetkevych.

The design team includes Nicholas Vaughan (set), Jessica Watters (costumes), Douglas Filomina (lighting) and Ryan Maeker (sound). Choreography is by Wendy Seyb. Actress O'Connor returned to the Fringe this past summer in a revival of Daniel MacIvor's Never Swim Alone. She also has appeared in the scribe's See Bob Run and Marion Bridge as well as Julia Jordan's St. Scarlet and Brad Fraser's Snake in Fridge.

Morales has also penned the plays sebastian, Castle of Blood and expat/inferno — the latter earned the Best Overall Production at FringeNYC 2003.

Tickets to The Silent Concerto at The 14th Street Theater (formerly the 14th Street Y), 344 East 14th Street (between First and Second Ave.), are available by calling (212) 868-4444.
