Playhouse on Park, 244 Park Road, West Hartford, CT , 06119

Join Playhouse on Park in designating the Greater Hartford area as a premiere destination for the cultivation of innovative theatrical work!

The mission of Playwrights on Park is to produce original plays and musicals, therefore fostering emerging and established playwrights. Each reading features a new work, where audience members participate in a talk back session with the playwright, director and cast members. Audience members are also provided with response cards at the end of each reading.

Owen meets Lucy, they fall in love, they break up, they rewind and start all over. And over and over and over. A couple, forced to endlessly re-live their romance from beginning to end, wonders if the fate of their relationship is inevitable. They decide to go back and try it all again, this time without the lies or the fear. Could the truth make a difference? Could it release them both from their purgatory?

Eugene O'Neill's A Moon For The Misbegotten;

Stage/Theater

Playhouse on Park, 244 Park Road, West Hartford, CT , 06119

The classic and moving drama A Moon For The Misbegotten is the next show in Playhouse on Park's Mainstage Series. Opening night is Friday, February 17, at 8pm, with a complimentary pre-performance wine and cheese reception at 7pm.

A Moon For the Misbegotten runs through March 5, with previews on February 15 and 16. All preview seats are only $17.50! In addition, there is a talk back with the cast after Sunday matinees.

Written by one of America’s greatest playwrights, Eugene O’Neill, this Tony Award nominated play follows the events of O’Neill’s Long Day’s Journey into Night. Set in 1923 on a small farm in our very own Nutmeg State within the span of a day, A Moon For The Misbegotten follows a gruff and scheming tenant farmer, Phil Hogan, and his headstrong daughter, Josie. The farm's landlord, James Tyrone, Jr. encounters Josie and mutual attraction follows, but not without some complications. When James disappears after what Josie thought was a perfect moonlight night, all parties find that things appear differently at daybreak. This story of love, addiction and conflict promises to captivate audiences today as it did when it premiered 70 years ago.

Tickets are now on sale for the Old Lyme Players’ production of Curtains, a musical comedy whodunit from the creators of Cabaret and Chicago. Curtains plays March 2–5 at Lyme–Old Lyme High School in Old Lyme.

It’s 1959, and opening night at Boston’s Colonial Theatre for Robbin’ Hood! — the flawed show-within-the-show at the center of Curtains. Robbin’ Hood’s untalented leading lady has been murdered, and the entire company is under suspicion as Boston police detective Frank Cioffi investigates the crime. But Cioffi may be more interested in saving the show than finding the murderer! Meanwhile, the body count is rising…

Curtains opened on Broadway in 2007, starring David Hyde Pierce (Frasier, Spamalot) as Cioffi, for which he won the Tony Award for best actor in a musical. It ran for more than 500 performances. The Old Lyme Players’ production is directed by LOLHS teacher James Motes with choreography by Bethany Haslam (director of the Dance Center of Old Lyme), and orchestral direction by LOLHS band teacher Jacob Wilson. The cast features 38 LOLHS students, with another 20 students involved in the production’s stage crew and pit orchestra.
