A Tony-winning comedy, a Pulitzer-nominated drama, a shared world premiere, top-40 pop hits and Christmas in a trailer park. Hard to see how Actor’s Theatre of Charlotte’s 2014-15 season could be more diverse than that.
Or more fresh: The seven-show season that has just gone on sale at an Early Bird discount contains four plays and three musicals, none of which have been produced in this region.
And here’s the cool part: Five of the scripts were written by women, and the majority of the roles are for women. As women make up the bulk of ATC’s audience, the shows will reflect that audience. (On the other hand, the last title is “Cougar: The Musical.” Shouldn’t have trouble getting guys to that one.)
