April 24-May 18
As Seminar by Theresa Rebeck opens, four young writers are gathered in an Upper West Side apartment waiting for Leonard, a fiction guru, for whose counsel they have each paid $5,000.
They are a fractious lot (so unlike other writers) even before Leonard arrives, swapping barbs about one another's pretensions.
But that's nothing compared to the verbal flatulence that fills the air once Leonard arrives, trailing weary contempt and sexual charisma. Once a celebrated novelist, he's best known now as a teacher and grandstanding chronicler of life in danger zones in third-world countries.
The verbal and sexual sparring yield what The New York Times called "Big laughs...an authentic rush of pleasure." It's tight, witty and consistently entertaining, acquiring more muscle as the layers are peeled back to reveal both the scarred humanity beneath Leonard's soured exterior.
Directed by Jac Alder, Theatre Three's production of Seminar by Theresa Rebeck is theSouthwest premiere of this new Broadway comedy.
