Madwoman of Chaillot SOLD OUT
SORRY FRIENDS-THE WHOLE RUN SOLD OUT ALMOST INSTANTLY – WE WILL HAVE TO DO MORE OF THIS KIND OF SHOW FOR YOU!
Coming June 29, 30 and July 1,6,7,8, 2012 – The Madwoman of Chaillot, the perfect play for now, the perfect play for Greenfield will take downtown by storm. To purchase tickets follow this link (processing fees will apply):
Old Deerfield Productions
And Tickets will be available on the first week of June at outlets in downtown Greenfield: Chamber of Commerce, Raven Books and World Eye Books.
The little city that took on the Big Box will be celebrated in Old Deerfield Productions’ The Madwoman of Chaillot, a delightful, deliciously topical comedy for the whole family. Main Street and the Common will come to life with circus and street performers, while the Arts Block and Pushkin Gallery provide double stages for a multitudinous cast from around the Valley.
Directed by Chris Rohmann, the performance, over two weekends in June and July, will unfold in multiple venues: Outdoor preshow entertainment will move into the Arts Block café, done up as the Parisian sidewalk bistro where Act One takes place. Then we’ll move across the street to the Pushkin Gallery for Act Two’s thrilling climax in an underground crypt, performed amid an art installation by designer and artist Athan Vennell which completes the Steampunk design concept of this hilarious and timely classic.
Jean Giraudoux’s whimsical masterpiece, written in 1943, is startlingly relevant to today’s world. As corrupt corporate executives plot to destroy Paris to get at the oil they believe flows beneath the city streets, crazy-like-a-fox Countess Aurelia, the Madwoman of Chaillot-played by Linda McInerney – rallies her eccentric community to save itself, and the world. With downtown Greenfield dressed up as the City of Light, local luminaries in cameo roles, and a movable feast of fun and fantasy, it will be dazzlingly clear that “Nothing is ever so wrong in this world that a sensible woman can’t set it right in the course of an afternoon.”
A pre-party with wine, beer and snacks begins at 6pm in the Arts Block on weekend nights, and an after-party with music follows the show. Drinks and refreshments will also be available in the Pushkin Gallery during intermission. Linda McInerney produces the spectacular event, with costumes by Athan Vennell, lights by Andrew Bishop, and stage-managed by Connie Cappelli.
