What: Open rehearsal for Jean-François Regnard's 'The Heir Apparent', adapted by David Ives and directed by Michael Kahn. Go behind the scenes as the director and cast take the stage for the first time during this open rehearsal.
When: August 27, 2011. First seating at 2:00pm. FYI. there is a second seating at 3:20pm but the Meet-up is only for the first.
Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
Where: Lansburgh Theatre
450 7th St. NW, Washington, D.C. 20004
Meeting Place: I had a meet-up for an open rehearsal in January and it was a very popular event. Because of the way attendees were queued up in the theater before the event it was a little difficult to meet the whole group. Therefore this time I suggest we meet at the F Street entrance to the Smithsonian American Art Museum (8th and F Streets, N.W.) on the steps, at 12:45pm. We can then walk to the theater as a group at 1:00pm sharp. I will have the Meet-up sign. I know this means quite a wait but this was a well attended event and the theater was full.
How much: Attendance is free, but a $1.00 donation to the Culture Club to help maintain the group's presence on Meetup.com would be very much appreciated.
About the play: Broadway playwright David Ives returns with The Heir Apparent, an adaptation of Jean-François Regnard’s 1708 masterpiece, directed by Artistic Director Michael Kahn. Eraste desperately wants to marry Isabelle, but first he needs to secure an inheritance from his miserable old uncle, Geronte. Geronte won’t make it easy for Eraste, though, as he’s bequeathed his money to distant relatives. Can Eraste’s resourceful servant save the day with his powers of disguise and his quick wit? Love, family and intrigue join to make this a hilarious French farce
After the rehearsal: If anyone is interested we can grab a bite to eat or a drink after the rehearsal. My cell is[masked] if you can't find me.
