Jerry’s Guide to the 2011-12 Season

April 12th, 2011 by Seattle Repertory Theatre

We asked Jerry to play “fill in the blanks” about the shows in the just-announced coming season. Here are his answers:

The play that made me cry when I read it is How to Write a New Book for the Bible.

The playwright everyone should keep an eye on is Annie Baker, who wrote Circle, Mirror, Transformation. That play is like watching a brilliant, hilarious independent film on stage.

The play that might win the Pulitzer: Clybourne Park. It’s in the running, and rightly so.

Moment I can’t wait to see on stage: Lorenzo Pisoni flying in and out of a circus trunk in Humor Abuse.

Feel-good play of the season: Sylvia. There’s a reason it’s such a subscriber favorite. You can’t help but love that woman, er, dog.

Audiences think they know, but will be surprised by The Glass Menagerie. This will be a fresh, innovative take on an amazing American classic.

Set I can’t wait to see: Red. Rothko paintings everywhere? It will be gorgeous.

Favorite character: Aphra Behn in Or. She’s a spy AND England’s first female professional playwright.
