A part of our “Mysterious MainStage” - our first dual-show MainStage Season!
As the close friends of Charlie & Myra Brock arrive to celebrate the couples 20th wedding anniversary, they hear a gunshot, and arrive to a near-empty house, with none of the serving staff, no Myra, and Charlie delirious and distraught. What's happened? Why? And have you heard the Rumors?
This dark but hilarious farce by Neil Simon is one of the beloved playwright’s most popular shows, and was also TYR’s very first non-musical MainStage Production. In the lead-up to the show, the staff had wondered how our audiences and students would react to some darker and more mature material as we moved our MainStage Format to smaller, more intimate productions, but all worries we’d had about the transition evaporated on opening night. The actors sure didn’t disappoint, and we had audiences that grew every performance, and laughter echoing in the theater. We only wish we could have had more performances!
