August, 2013 Boca Raton, FL:
Sol Theatre will debut its brand new company, Evening Star Productions with a performance of V. Glasgow Koste’s I Remain… J. Austen in a limited run from September 27th – 29th.
The play, which will star Sol Theatre alumna Ireland Glennon, posits that Jane Austen is alive and well and living any place she chooses to ‘body forth’ at the flamboyant age of 218-going-on-forever. Quirky, jubilant and curious, this Jane’s ironic and comic edge reveals a fiercely independent woman, liberated by her work’s immortality to speak her mind and open her heart. Glennon received glowing reviews when she first played the role in the Sol Children Theatre’s production of the play last May, bringing to life a Jane Austen, as imagined by Koste ‘not staled by custom or stereotype; facing death and the loss of love; laughing at herself; reveling in the sound and sense of language; burning with work; demanding, raging, discovering, and still growing.’
An offshoot of Sol Children Theatre, Evening Star Productions will focus on plays for more for mature audiences, and feature adult, professional actors, as well as young people working towards a career in theatre. The company will offer serious young adult actors, stage managers, and designers the opportunity to push the boundaries of their knowledge and talent in a safe and highly professional environment; enable them to prepare for college, regional, and professional theatre companies; and offer them the opportunity to be critiqued by regional professionals and critics to receive objective evaluations vital to their personal and professional growth.
Evening Star Productions’ I Remain…J. Austen will run from September 27th – 29th at Sol Theatre in Boca Raton. Tickets are $15 for adults, and $10 for students. Tickets are on sale now, and can be purchased at the Sol Theatre box office at 561-447-8829.
Praise for I Remain… J. Austen and Ireland Glennon:
“What a wonderful, wonderful production! We had the best time! Yes, the script is brilliant, but more than that, the direction, delivery, execution of that script are priceless! Ireland Glennon breathes life into a witty, down-to-earth, let’s-get-real-here Jane Austen that does not stretch the limits of disbelief. It was a privilege to watch this brilliant young woman bring the 18th century wit into 21st century Boca….” Shefali Choksi
“What an amazing solo show. I was transported to another time and wanted to go home and pick up her books.” Carola Blackwood
