Invisible Theatre Concludes its 48th Anniversary Season
April 23, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - April 24, 2019 @ 9:00 pm MST
Invisible Theatre concludes its 48 th Anniversary Season with the Southwest Premiere of 20TH CENTURY BLUES by Susan Miller. This sharply funny and evocative new play features an all-star cast: Molly McKasson, Susan Baker, ToReeNee Wolf, Geri Hooper Wharham, P.J. Peavy, and Cole Potwardowski and is directed by Susan Claassen with Fred Rodriguez. A reunion. An Argument. A Ted Talk. Emotional mutiny. And a bond that connects four women who meet once a year for a photo shoot, chronicling their changing (and aging) selves as they navigate through love, careers, children, and major world events. But, when these private photographs have the potential to go public in a retrospective at MoMA, their relationships are tested, forcing the women to confront who they are, what they’ve become, and how they’ll deal with whatever lies ahead.
This production is made possible in part through the generous support of Kristi Keller and Bernie Bauer. 20TH CENTURY BLUES by Susan Miller will play April 23* – May 5, 2019, with the official press opening on Wednesday, April 24 at 7:30 P.M. A low cost preview* ($20) takes place on Tuesday, April 23, 2019 at 7:30 P.M.
