Ubu’s Other Shoe AUDITIONS this weekend and an Ubu’s staged reading of 4000 MILES next weekend!

Director Leticia Velez is looking for a large cast of talented actors to take on Tom Stoppard’s funny, sentimental, insightful play about art and politics. ROCK ‘N ROLL will be #6 in our series of nine Ubu’s Other Shoe Staged Readings this season and YOU can play a role. Staged Readings are a great way to get back into acting, especially for busy, talented people. Less rehearsal time and a limited performance run, with all the challenge and fun of a full production.

Playwright and screenwriter Tom Stoppard, author of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, The Real Thing, Arcadia, Shakespeare in Love, Brazil (just to name a few) has won four Tony Awards and one Academy Award and is one of the most internationally performed playwrights of his generation. You can read more about his 2006 play, ROCK ‘ N ROLL, in a Huffington Post story right HERE and find out more about auditions HERE. Auditions are this Sunday at 4:30 pm. Come on… you know you want to.

And don’t miss our next Ubu’s Other Show staged reading performance: Amy Herzog’s 4000 MILES, directed by Danielle McNamara and featuring Allen Negrete, Alpha O’Neal, Dixie Parker and Arisa Bega.  A finalist for the 2013 Pulitzer Prize, Herzog’s heartfelt and riveting drama “…seems fresh, particularized, plausible…4000 Miles is the family drama that really sticks with you, easily the best play of the season.” (Time Magazine review.)

There will be three performances of 4000 MILES: Friday, January 30 at 7 pm and Saturday, January 31 at 2 pm and 7 pm. You can find out more about the production and get your tickets online HERE.
