The boss is an aging legend, cantankerous but charismatic. His new assistant is young and vulnerable, but full of grit. When the two interact at work, the fun begins. Based on the playwright's own real-life experience as a young secretary from the Canadian prairie who finds herself working for the aging Francis Biddle, the primary judge on the postwar Nuremberg Trials, Trying is a hopeful and humorous tale of friendship amid life's most inevitable adventure: growing old. Upon its off-Broadway debut, The New York Times praised the show as "comic and touching." Now International City Theatre stages a fresh production of this bracing, brilliant play by Joanna McClelland Glass (Canadian Gothic, Yesteryear). Learn More

This musical is excellent - one of the best that ICT has done. The cast had a few mistakes but nothing surprising considering that I saw it on the first night of previews. My only complaints: 1) particularly during the first act, Niketa's singing seemed to be hard to understand. Either she was not singing clearly or her mic was not functioning properly. In the second act, her singing was much clearer. And 2) I thought the first act lacked the customary excitement and energy I have seen in other productions of this musical. The energy level in the second act was much better; again, it's possible this was "first night jitters". All in all, a wonderful production and I highly recommend!
The joint will be jumpin’ when International City Theatre closes its 2012 season with Ain’t Misbehavin’, the Tony Award-winning musical revue based on the life of Thomas “Fats” Waller. Saundra McClain directs Phillip Brandon (national tour: The Color Purple), Niketa Calame (Celebration Theatre’s The Color Purple), Amber Mercomes (San Francisco and Los Angeles Opera productions of Porgy and Bess), Lacy Darryl Phillips (Broadway: Fosse and A Raisin in the Sun) and Jennifer Shelton (first national tour of Ragtime; previously seen on the ICT stage in Songs for a New World, Five Course Love, The Story, Honk! and Swinging on a Star), with musical direction by Rahn Coleman and choreography by Stephen Semien.
