Sputnik in Suburbia

Illinois-based Kane Repertory Theatre is kicking off an online reading series tomorrow with Adam Kraar's play Sputnik in Suburbia.

Kraar, who is known for such plays as Empire of the Trees, has set his latest piece in 1957 Cold-War America. The cast includes Kate Abbruzzese, Avery Bowne, Jonathan Silver, and Daniil Krimer.

I worked with Daniil previously on THE STATE OF COLORADO v. TENNESSEE WILLIAMS. He's now shaking up the Midwest theatre scene as artistic director of Kane Rep. Expect more announcements about the company's New Play Lab reading series soon!

To tune in to Sputnik in Suburbia, go to Kane Rep's YouTube channel on Wednesday at 7:30 pm Central Time, which is 8:30 pm Eastern. I'm looking forward to it.
