‘Wreck The Halls’

November 26, 27, December 3, 4, 10, 11, 17 and 18 at 8:00 p.m. on Fridays & Saturdays. There will be two 2:00 p.m. Sunday matinees on December 5 and 12. Tickets are $30 for adults and $15 for students.

The Sherman Playhouse will present Bradford Blake’s hilarious holiday musical revue, WRECK THE HALLS, directed by Brad Blake with musical direction by Charles Smith.

Nothing is sacred in this SLAY ride of adult humor that rips the shiny bows and pretty wrapping off the holiday season. The show features two acts of music-filled satire and burlesque that turn the last quarter of the calendar belly up. And audiences should be warned - they'll never look at Kris Kringle the same way again.

The cast will be composed of many local favorites who have previously appeared in productions of WRECK THE HALLS all over Fairfield County. Featured in this production are Anya Caravella (Brookfield), Bret Bisaillon (Prospect), T. Sean Maher (Stratford), Jessica Smith (New Fairfield), Priscilla Squiers and Alexis Vournazos (both Danbury).

(Warning: Due to adult humor, WRECK THE HALLS is not recommended for the younger elves)

Playwright Spotlight

Who is Lucas Hnath, playwright of 'A Doll's House, Part Two'?

Hnath grew up in Orlando, Florida. He moved to New York City in 1997 to study pre-med and then changed to dramatic writing at the Tisch School of the Arts, at New York University, earning a BFA in 2001, and an MFA in 2002. He teaches at New York University.
He is a resident playwright at New Dramatists.

His first play, Red Speedo premiered Off-Broadway at the New York Theatre Workshop from February 17, 2016 to March 27, 2016. The play, directed by Lileana Blain-Cruz, won the Obie Award, Playwriting and Performance for Lucas Caleb Rooney. The play involves Ray, a competitive swimmer at the start of the trials for the Olympic team. Jesse Green, in his review for Vulture, wrote: "Hnath is never interested solely in the material repercussions of character... In Red Speedo, the underlying subject seems to be the cost of morality, which is generally too high for people like Ray... Hnath lightly suggests — he's too subtle to use the big hammer — that the immoral imbalance of our current economy is stripping us down to our animal skins. All we're good for is competition." The play opened at the Studio Theatre, Washington, DC, in 2013. The director of the production, Lila Neugebauer, explained: "...doping is just the arena for a conversation about what constitutes fairness, and the myth of equal opportunity."

His play A Doll's House, Part 2 premiered on Broadway at the John Golden Theatre on April 1, 2017 in previews and closed on September 24, 2017. Directed by Sam Gold, the cast featured Laurie Metcalf, Chris Cooper, Jayne Houdyshell, and Condola Rashād. The play was commissioned by South Coast Repertory, Costa Mesa, California, where it was running at the same time, directed by Shelley Butler, beginning April 9, 2017. This marked Hnath's Broadway debut. Hnath's play "picks up after Henrik Ibsen's "A Doll's House" concludes." The play was nominated for the 2017 Tony Award for Best Play and Laurie Metcalf won the 2017 Tony Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Play.

His play Hillary and Clinton opened in previews on Broadway at the John Golden Theatre on March 16, 2019, officially on April 18. The play is directed by Joe Mantello and stars Laurie Metcalf and John Lithgow. The play had pre-Broadway engagements starting in 2016 at the Victory Gardens Theater, Chicago.

Dana H premiered at the Kirk Douglas Theatre (Los Angeles) on May 26, 2019 in previews, officially on June 2, presented by the Center Theatre Group. The play relates a real-life incident in the life of his mother, Dana Higginbotham. The play is directed by Les Waters and stars Deidre O’Connell. The play was commissioned by The Civilians (New York) and the Goodman Theatre (Chicago), and will play at the Goodman later in 2019. Dana H will play Broadway this fall.
