Description

LISA KRON, a TONY Award-nominated actress and playwright (for her play WELL, directed by Leigh Silverman) and Pulitzer Prize-finalist (for the musical adaptation of Allison Bechdel's classic graphic novel FUN HOME, soon to be on Broadway) describes the work of her colleague and friend, five-time OBIE Award-recipient DAVID GREENSPAN, in anticipation of his newest play: "I never miss a David Greenspan play, and you shouldn't either." TICKETS + INFO: http://bit.ly/1M3WV7k A New Play - World Premiere Written by and Starring David Greenspan Directed by Leigh Silverman With Brooke Bloom and Keith Nobbs 14 Performances Only Abrons Arts Center Playhouse 466 Grand Street at Pitt New York City 10002 Five-time OBIE Award-recipient actor/playwright David Greenspan presents I'm Looking for Helen Twelvetrees, the story of a young man's pursuit of Helen Twelvetrees - a real-life star of the early talking pictures - during her run as "Blanche DuBois" at a summer stock theater in 1951. Greenspan's soft, elliptical narrative weaves the young man's life with that of Twelvetrees to find beauty in lives that are dwindling towards despair, and comfort in recollections of transcendent artistry. Featuring Greenspan, Brooke Bloom (P73's You Got Older), and Lucille Lortel Award-winner Keith Nobbs (Broadway: Lombardi), the production is directed by Mr. Greenspan's longtime collaborator, Tony Award nominee Leigh Silverman.
