From the Seeing Place Theatre: Danny and the Deep Blue Sea and The Lover
“Some people claim that marriage interferes with romance. There’s no doubt about it. Anytime you have a romance, your wife is bound to interfere.” – Groucho Marx
About The Lover: How far will you go to spice up your marriage? Do you need to go outside of it to get the fulfillment you need? And what happens when you cross the line? In Pinter’s quintessential dark and stormy bedroom farce, he examines a husband, a wife, her lover, and the coping mechanisms people use to survive the seven year itch.
About Danny and the Deep Blue Sea: A man and a woman, both lonely outcasts, meet in a bar – in desperate need of a change. He is violent and possibly homicidal, she is tormented and possibly suicidal; each is transformed by the love of the other. The New York Times suggested the play would be more appropriately titled, “The Beast and the Beast”. If so, this is the story of two beasts fighting to accept beauty into their lives.
We’re excited to announce that these show are running in true repertory – performed on the same evening, with the same cast, design concept, and creative team. Both shows total 2 hours of programming with a small, changeover break. And yes, there will be accents!

Performances run July 27 – August 12, 2012
Wednesday – Saturday at 7pm. Saturday & Sunday at 2pm.

About The Seeing Place:
The Seeing Place Theater is an actor-driven ensemble known for its intense and intimate work – with ticket prices anyone can afford! Since 2009, we’ve been forcefully committed to:
THE ACTOR’S PROCESS: Through robust table work and improvisation, we focus on honoring the actor’s artistry in creating a character and building a story, which extends from rehearsal into performance. It’s a pro-actor philosophy, and it’s rare in today’s market.
ORGANIC STORYTELLING: Unlike other companies, we do not set staging (blocking) or cement our choices in advance. Instead, what audiences get to see is a group of actors “in the moment” – working off one another to tell a fresh story that is never the same night to night. It’s daring, it’s exciting, and yes… a little bit dangerous!
COMMUNITY VALUE: We produce our shows in Hell’s Kitchen in the heart of midtown Manhattan, a community hungry for strong, independent theater to combat the high priced, commercial offerings of Broadway. We’ve been awed by the positive response by critics & audiences about the unique, quality work we’ve been able to share at the independent theater level.
But don’t take our word for it:
“In these recession strapped times, it’s the best deal on or off Broadway.” – Will Kenton, Cultural Capitol (from a review of this year’s production of CLOSER)
