Anton in Show Business, an intelligent comedy for grown-ups by Jane Martin, will be produced by Theatre 4 at 8 pm, October 10-11 in Middletown.
Featuring an all-female cast of professional, Connecticut actresses, Theatre 4 is the new New Haven-based company that is now launching its first full season after the success of its production last fall of Donald Margulies’s play Collected Stories.
Jane Martin's Anton in Show Business, a hit at the 24th Humana Festival of New American Plays, is an “intelligent comedy for grownups,” satirizing the myriad of challenges of producing a play. While taking a comic look at self-involved actors, egotistical directors, complacent audiences, over zealous critics, and fickle corporate sponsors, the play’s heart lies in the growing importance of the arts for their ability – if only for a moment in time – to create community and magic. Theatre 4’s cast features Annie DiMartino, Rebecka Jones, Aaliyah Miller, Kaia Monroe, Mariah Sage, Rachel Shapiro, Jackie Sidle, and Jane Tamarkin.
