Like many theaters and businesses in the land these days, Chanticleers Theatre has been hoping to inch its way back to normalcy. We planned optimistically to offer three shows this season. So far, we have presented only two productions. Here’s the latest…
ALMOST, MAINE by John Cariani
Directed by Carl Smith, Jr
April 16, 2021 to May 9, 2021
A streaming show to download and watch from your own home.
Welcome to Almost, Maine, a town that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States—it’s almost in Canada. And it almost doesn’t exist. Because its residents never got around to getting organized. So it’s just…Almost. One cold, clear Friday night in the middle of winter, while the northern lights hover in the sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in the strangest ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. Love is lost, found, and confounded. And life for the people of Almost, Maine will never be the same.
ALMOST, MAINE: It’s love. But not quite.
Produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service
THE FOUR POSTER, by Jan de Hartog
Directed by John Baiocchi
July 16, 2021– August 8, 2021
A streaming show to download and watch from your own home… Limited live productions have been cancelled.** See Apology**
Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy starred on Broadway in this moving chronicle of a husband and wife, from their wedding night until they leave the house that has been their home, thirty-five years later. They fret and quarrel, laugh, cry, and make love in the same room in which they began their married life. Standing throughout the evening is the old fourposter, silent witness to all.
Produced by special arrangement with Samuel French and Concord Theatricals.
THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY
Based on the best-selling novel, and developed by Tony Award winner Jason Robert Brown (The Last Five Years, Parade, Songs for a New World) and Pulitzer Prize winner Marsha Norman, The Bridges of Madison County captures the lyrical expanse of America’s heartland along with the yearning entangled in the eternal question, “What if…?” Winner of the 2014 Tony Award for Best Score and Orchestrations, this sweeping romance about the roads we travel, the doors we open and the bridges we dare to cross will leave audiences breathless.
