Why See Blue Ridge?
Abby Rosebrock's Brand New Black Comedy Blue Ridge
Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winning Off-Broadway theater organisation the Atlantic Theater Company presents a dynamic 2018/19 season of world premiere works, including New York-based playwright and activist Abby Rosebrock's Blue Ridge. Helmed by Egyptian-American director Taibi Magar and starring Tony Award-nominated actress Marin Ireland, the black comedy explores heart break, mental health and spiritual healing.
Set in a small community in the Southern Appalachia, Blue Ridge follows a progressive teacher at odd with her surroundings, especially her no-good, untrustworthy boss. When she can't take it anymore, her retaliation and anger issues land her in a church-sponsored half-way house for six months, where she places her attentions on its inhabitants and every recovery but her own.
Opening night: 12 December 2018

The hallmark ingenuity, warmth, and intensity bordering on excess that characterize Arden's style is recapitulated everywhere within the production, from the frankly stupendous singing to the electric choreography.
The real spinning carousel in this production is love. That, for better and worse, is what makes nature churn - and the world go round - in this show's blissful, anguished universe.
