Limited Engagement: Gentlemen Volunteers reunites original cast for select performances
GENTLEMEN VOLUNTEERS reunites original cast for two benefit performances December 19-20, 2015
Two shows only!
In conjunction with the all new cast performances of GENTLEMEN VOLUNTEERS we have two special opportunities this December.
The original cast reunites to perform the show that put Pig Iron on the map in the previous century, back when all these folks were in their twenties.
Don't miss your chance to see our two founding artistic directors, Dito van Reigersberg and Quinn Bauriedel on stage as Rich and Vincent. Joining them will be Cassie Friend as Mary, Emmanuelle Delpech as Francoise, and James Sugg as Jean. Cassie journeys to Philadelphia from her home in England for this special engagement and Quinn and James come out of retirement for this once-in-a-moment presentation. The twentieth anniversary of Pig Iron and the 100th anniversary of World War I were too much to resist.
December 19th at 8:00pm Followed by a reception + party $200 per ticket
December 20th at 3:00pm Followed by a Lecture Demonstration of foley sound with James Sugg and Dan Rothenberg and moderated by Troy Herion $100 per ticket
RSVP for these benefit performances by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or call 215-425-1100
About Gentlemen Volunteers Set against the chaos of World War I, GENTLEMEN VOLUNTEERS follows two American ambulance drivers from the idyllic campus of Yale University to the battlefields of France. An epic romance in the style of classic films such as Casablanca, GENTLEMEN VOLUNTEERS features live music and James Sugg's award-winning low-tech sound design.
"It's as stirring as Brief Encounter, with the sweep of Hemingway." - The Guardian
