WHAT’S HAPPENING @ NJ REP IN LONG BRANCH

FINAL 2 WEEKS:

Wild Horses

Bajou runs a storyteller’s gamut in her animated recollections ... the actress occupies all corners of the stage with a disarming energy; offering up a variety of voice characterizations, while maintaining a sense that this breakneck ramble through suburban bedrooms and dusty fields is going someplace fast. And you can bet that the last jukebox quarter that those wild horses of the title figure into the action - Asbury Park Press

Charming and Compelling ... Estelle  Bajou is outstanding - Broadway World

A tour de force performance - Two River Times

Touching and honest and presented with love and understanding affection - Out in Jersey

Estelle Bajou is particularly effective ... Director Barabas has a knowing way with female actors and characters. Gregory’s play is fragile -  it is handled with care - Scene On Stage

Wild Horses is a great evening of theater, telling a tale of adolescence at once particular and universal - The Link News

WHEN: Thursday, Friday at 7:45; Saturday at 2:45 and 7:45; Sunday at 1:45 now thru March 25.
WHERE: NEW JERSEY REPERTORY COMPANY, 179 Broadway, Long Branch

Monday Night Salon Readings

Life On My Knees
by William Missouri Downs

WHEN: March 19, 2018. Doors open at 6:30. Readings begin promptly at 7:00 and are followed by a discussion. Seating is first come, first served.
WHERE:
NEW JERSEY REPERTORY COMPANY, 179 Broadway, Long Branch

A PhD in English lit isn't worth much—just ask Dr. Helen Hand. Desperate for a job, she drunkenly agrees to teach at a conservative bible college in the-middle-of-nowhere Kansas. The problem—she's a skeptic, a liberal and gluten intolerant. She enters a world of rigid moral rules: no smoking, no alcohol, no doubting. Working undercover she sets out to enlighten the fundamentalist students, but it quickly goes to hell. This small cast comedy looks at our need for faith and reason. 


Next Up ...

Issei, He Say, Or the Myth of the First 
an award-winning new play by Chloé Hung

WHERE: NEW JERSEY REPERTORY COMPANY, 179 Broadway, Long Branch
For tickets call 732-229-3166 or click BUY TICKETS.

Directed by Lisa James and starring  Stan Egi, Kathleen Kwan, Fenton Li, Christina Liang, Issei, He Say is a story about family, told with humor and pathos, about being the first generation in a new country, the ups-and-downs of fitting in, the history they carry with them, and the prejudices that follow them.
