A scene from TampaRep's production of Stupid Fucking Bird.

Critics and Audiences Love Stupid F##king Bird!

The first weekend is in the books and critics and audiences agree — Stupid Fucking Bird is a hit! As one audience member put it, “I couldn’t be more in awe of what these amazing actors have put on that stage. The company as a whole has put together a show that is fully fleshed out and real. . . GO SEE THIS SHOW!!!”

Peter Nason, in Broadway World, noted that “. . . this is the type of show that elevates theatre in the Tampa Bay area; it’s what TampaRep does best. Fascinating plays, brilliant scripts, all executed well. . . it’s a don’t-miss experience. Edgy, playful, well-acted, and best of all, intelligent. STUPID F**KING BIRD is one super-smart show.” (You can read his entire review here.)

Jospeh Parra points out that “Co-directors Connie LaMarca-Frankel and C. David Frankel have very carefully patterned this difficult play out beautifully, nudging us and letting us become instantly familiar and intimate with these characters and the actors as well. This is a true ensemble piece and no one person has the lion’s share of the workload and the actors are all yeoman of the guard and do fine work.”  He’s got a lot more to say and you can read it here.

There are only 8 more performances — we must close on June 16th — so fly on over to TampaRep.org/Bird and get your tickets now!

TampaRep's Season 9

We’ve got another great season coming up, with three exciting plays:  Dinner with Friends, The (Curious Case of the) Watson Intelligence, and King Lear. Now through August 1 is the best time to get tickets by purchasing a FlexPass (regular or mini) at the early bird price.  You’ll save over 40% over the cost of individual tickets! It’s theatre going your way!

Stupid F##king Fundraiser!

That’s right, we’re asking for money to help finish off Season 8 with a bang. We’re grateful to Global-Widget, LLC, for joining us as a production sponsor for the last production of the season, Stupid Fucking Bird, but their generosity only covers part of what we need to make it possible to deliver the best production values and compensate the many local artists involved in our show. As with most nonprofit theatre, less than 50% of our income comes from ticket sales, so we need the continued help of our generous, passionate donors and from new friends, as well. Your generosity as a Friend of TampaRep will not only help us end Season 8 with a bang, it will also help build a strong foundation for Season 9 so we can continue to produce plays that are innovative, provocative, classic – and entertaining.

Thank you, and see you at the theatre!
