I saw this the first night of previews and it was totally polished. I'm a big fan of Alan Ayckbourn, and this production of Joking Apart was spot on. A very talented cast, great timing, an overall delight. I sent two friends the next night and...continued
Richard and Anthea seem to have it all: a lovely country house, two wonderful children, and a natural social charm that captivates the friends surrounding them. Or do they? Cleverly crafted with vintage Ayckbourn wit, Joking Apart simmers with triumphs on and off the tennis court, ongoing rivalries, petty jealousies, unrequited love and lust, and the tantalizing question, “What is happiness?”
About the Ticket Supplier: T. Schreiber Studio
The T. Schreiber Studio began in 1969 with Terry Schreiber teaching classes twice a week to twelve actors in a converted loft on the Upper East Side of New York City. Enrollment increased and the group began mounting productions in what were the early beginnings of New York City’s Off-Off Broadway movement and building its reputation of high quality productions and performances. The studio continued to grow, adding more faculty, more actors, and more plays and in the mid 70’s, drama critic Walter Kerr’s glowing review in the New York Times of Schreiber’s production of The Trip Back Down, brought the Studio much attention and packed houses. The Trip Back Down then moved to Broadway and John Cullum (Northern Exposure) was signed to do the lead. Throughout the 1980’s and into the 90’s the T. Schreiber Studio continued to produce good actors and good theater, adding Betty Buckley to its prestigious faculty and residing at 83 East Fourth Street, the burgeoning street of Off-Off Broadway. During that time Terry Schreiber continued his own directing career with two more Broadway shows: Devour the Snow and K-2, and numerous regional theater productions providing more casting opportunities for studio actors.
In 1996 the Studio moved to its current, renovated multi-use space on the 7th floor of 151 West 26th Street in New York’s lively Chelsea neighborhood. Classes and productions run continuously throughout the year.
