I hadn't known what to expect and was very pleasantly surprised. I'd never been to Prop Theatre before and look forward to seeing more there, as well as of the WAFF company. Keep up the good work and thanks for using Goldstar. It made a difference in my decision to attend this performance, and I'm very glad I saw it.
By Len Jenkin
Directed by Corri Feuerstein
It is night, we are in America, and the time is now.
The voiceless drifter…a young girl…the down-and-out businessman…a carnival barker…the mayor of nowhere…the struggling reporter…a restless woman…the singing con artists…the mad professor…all of their disparate desperations struggling to be heard. These are the people in our neighborhood.
This is interesting country. Look around.
Part intertwined character sketchbook, part postcard collection, and held together by desperation and coffee-fueled late-night conversation; American Notes is a surreal journey into the American Myth and the mysteries of Who We Are, What We Do, and Is That Crocodile Dead? Jenkin’s darkly comic tale keeps us wondering what’s lurking just beyond our view. WAFF Artistic Director and co-founder Corri Feuerstein directs the play and its multifarious miscellany.
Featuring: F.Tyler Burnet, Devon Carson, LaQuin Groves, Andrew Jordan, Scott Pasko, Tony Piscotti, Jenna Rabideaux, Justin Speer, Melissa Tropp, and CW van Baale
