AWESOME CREATORS :: THEATRE :: THE (ANYTHING BUT) BASiC THEATRE PROJECT INSPIRES AND SHINES
“The Mistakes Madeline Made” is an honest yet eccentric look into figuring out the next step once you’ve graduated from college in post-9/11 America. The story follows twenty-something Edna as she copes with the loss of her brother surrounded by the beast that is New York City; horrible bosses, sleeping with “poets,” and kindergartners with bigger net worths than your whole family. But more than that, it is a play about love and dirty people, loss and mending as part of a generation that has grown up entirely in the presence of war. Edna’s plan of attack – no more bathing.
“Madeline” is the first offering in BASiC’s yearlong initiative, The NEW War Plays. The series will examine post-9/11 America’s response to and involvement in war through performance. The series begins with “Madeline,” followed by a new documentary play dissecting the LGBT military experience before and after DADT, and finishes with an epic new production of Brecht’s “Mother Courage.”
The cast of “Madeline” features Bryan Langlitz (Broadway’s Memphis), Hannah Whitney (NYMF’s Next Broadway Sensation), Caitlin Hargraves, Anthony Jackson and Samuel Barickman.
“The Mistakes Madeline Made” performs Wednesday, Jan. 16 to Sunday, Jan. 20, 2013 at the Theater at the 14th Street Y (344 E 14th St, btwn 1st and 2nd Aves).
Showtimes are Wednesday to Friday at 8 p.m., Saturday at 2 and 8 p.m., and Sunday at 7 p.m.
