News from TampaRep:
The Iceman Cometh — Acting Intensives for Youth and Adults, Too!

We’re just two weeks away from opening The Iceman Cometh, the final production of our Season of American Visions.  Our production of Iceman (pictured in rehearsal, above) celebrates the 100th anniversary of Eugene O’Neill’s first production (“Bound East for Cardiff”) at the Provincetown Playhouse in 1916.  Written near the end of his life,The Iceman Cometh probes with humor, pathos, and tragedy the importance of a dream of tomorrow to keep us going today.  Set in Harry Hope’s saloon in New York City’s then-grubby lower West side in 1912, The Iceman Cometh studies a collection of broken, lost men and women, and the salesman who arrives with a perverse pitch to save each of them from themselves. It’s a story of hope and regret, of how the lies people tell themselves can both sustain and destroy them.

Said one critic of the latest revival: “Iceman flies by like a rollercoaster ride of thrilling comedic highs and stomach-churning lows.”

The large TampaRep cast features some of Tampa’s finest actors, including Ned Averill-Snell (TampaRep’s Betrayal, Jobsite Theater’s Lebensraum), Michael Mahoney (Proof at Gypsy Stage Repertory), Jack Holloway (TampaRep’s Hamlet and True West), Erin Foster (TampaRep/Stageworks’ Inherit the Wind), Jordan Foote (American Stage’s One Slight Hitch), Josh Goff (American Stage’s Jitney), Nick Hoop (Jobsite’s Silence: The Musical) in the challenging role of Don Parritt, and many more, directed by TampaRep’s artistic director, C. David Frankel (Inherit the Wind — a co-production with Stageworks,Betrayal, and others).

Iceman opens on June 16 and plays weekends through July 3 in Studio 120 on the USF-Tampa campus.  Please note that performances on Thursdays through Saturdays begin at 7pm (Sundays at 3).  There’s ample onsite parking.  You can order tickets and find more information on our website.
