ARMS AND THE MAN

by George Bernard Shaw
Directed by Leah Bonvissuto
October 8 - November 1, 2009


Theater Ten Ten continues its love affair with G. B. Shaw. This season we present one of his best known pieces "Arms and The Man" which was first produced on April 21, 1894, and published in 1898 as part of Shaw's Plays Pleasant volume. The play is a delightful comedy, and an exuberant take on love and war that is filled with Shaw's usual razor sharp wit. Leah Bonvissuto, who directed our sold out run of Shaw's "The Philanderer" last season, returns to the helm. This production has limited seating in its jewel box setting so book your tickets soon! Appropriate for ages 8 years and up.


THE CRADLE WILL ROCK

by Mark Blitzstein
Directed by David Fuller
February 12 - March 14, 2010


This 1937 fierce and riveting musical comedy about the fight of the everyman against the power of corruption has a history as exciting as the musical itself. It was originally a part of the Federal Theatre Project, and was directed by Orson Welles, and produced by John Houseman. When the original production was shut down due to what most believe was an objection to the politics of the piece, the theatre was padlocked and surrounded by armed guards. The artists found a way to perform it despite all obstacles, and what resulted was a great and moving moment in theater history. Set in "Steeltown, USA", it follows the efforts of Larry Foreman to unionize and otherwise combat wicked businessman Mr. Mister, and is filled with a cornucopia of memorable characters. Join us for a long overdue revival of this exciting piece, directed by David Fuller, whose musical productions have been nominated by the Innovative Theater Awards for "Outstanding Production of a Musical" three times in the last four years! Appropriate for ages 10 years and up.


TWELFTH NIGHT

by William Shakespeare
Directed by Judith Jarosz
April 29 - May 23, 2010


Twelfth Night is one of the Bard's most beloved Comedies! This riotous romp of love and mistaken identity is set in Elizabethan times with sumptuous costumes by Deborah Houston and Set and Lighting by Resident Lighting and Set Designer Giles Hogya. The show will be directed by our Producing Artistic Director Judith Jarosz, who helmed our recent hit productions of Iolanthe... unplugged, A Midsummer Night's Dream, The Importance of Being Earnest, and The Tempest. Great fun for the whole family! Appropriate for ages six years and up. _____________________________________________________________________
