Bash is Back
BROADWAY MAGAZINE – Get your shock on. Fans and followers of Neil LaBute know that the playwright can challenge an audience. In last season’s Broadway production “reasons to be pretty,” the playwright found himself nominated for a Tony Award, and being celebrated for his unique style. Now, Eastcheap Rep brings back one of the playwrights most talked-about productions – BASH. First performed in 1999, you’ll find many of the qualities of LaBute’s style in embryo (three one-acts). Bash is rich with intensity and all that one expects from Neil Labute. It could even be described as a raw LaBute…which seems redundant…but is still true. Starring Luke Rosen and Chelsea Lagos, and directed by Robert Knopf, this revival will take place at Tom Noonan’s Paradise Factory. Previews start September 4. For those who like their theatre with a touch of the experiential, you can even attend a special “intimate bash” with 24-seat performances given on Friday and Saturday night at 10:30. Tickets are $25, and they include a glass of Prosecco. For further info call 212-868-4444.
