Award-winning playwright Lisa Kron was nominated for two Tony Awards for her outrageous comedy Well, the semi-autobiographical story about her mother’s ability to help her neighborhood survive changing times while lacking that ability to heal her own illness. The New York Times calls Well Kron’s “richest achievement…a deeply affecting play.”

From Dreamwell:

Dreamwell Theatre announces open auditions for "That Day in September" by Artie Van Why, directed by Matthew Falduto.

Auditions will be held Saturday, July 14 and Sunday, July 15 from 2-5pm at the Iowa City Public Library.

Roles are available for a diverse cast of eight actors, ages 18 to 80, men and women. Copies of the script are available at the ICPL.

Based on the author's own experiences in witnessing the collapse of the World Trade Center firsthand, Artie Van Why takes us through one man's life before and after the attacks on Sept. 11.

Originally presented as a one man show, the play has subsequently been performed by multiple actors. "That Day in September" will run for two weekends on September 7, 8, 14, and 15.

Meanwhile, Catalyst announces the cast for Sister Rosenweig:

Sisters Rosensweig
by Wendy Wasserstein

Sarah Goode -- Mary Haaf
Pfeni Rosensweig -- Vicki Krajewski
Gorgeous Teitelbaum -- Chris Hunt
Geoffrey Duncan -- Patrick Ashcraft
Mervyn Kant -- Dennis Aska
Nicholas Pym -- Chris Carpenter
Tess Goode - Alisa Rosenthal
Tom Valiunus -- Queue Jeffers

Sorry I missed those, Jeff, but I wasn't in town and didn't think it would work for special auditions 'cause I've now got to move not only my house but my Dad's as well (and my brother's, technically). However, I should be in town to see the performance - at the Wesley Center August 17th-19th.

As for the others: three plays, all directly conflicting, so we've got to balance it all out. Maybe a joint cast party is in order the weekend of September 14?!? Could be fun.

My blog critic doesn't think we could pull off the joint cast party thing. I'm thinking that's a challenge. We'll see. . .
