Asolo Repertory Theatre (Now playing until April 12, 2014)
“Everyone at some point in their life experiences a goodbye, whether going off to college or saying goodbye to a loved one.” -Sasha Fields ; Public Relations Manager, Asolo Rep Theatre
Moving from a small town in Ireland to big city life, has Gar O’Donnell excited, yet uneasy to leave his past behind without answering a few questions about his parents. This is a very funny energizing play in the first half, but towards the end it takes on a more somber feel. Somber because it starts to get real, he is in the final stages of his goodbye. The actors are exciting, well versed, and you may recognize a few faces if you’ve been attending previous shows. Always an exciting night at The Asolo Rep.
“In my position I get to see the whole show develop because I am in rehearsals. I see the actors grow into their roles,” says recently appointed Public Relations Manager; Sasha Fields. “Frank Galatti directs the play, he’s an open creative person, and a joy to watch. You see the actors open up ask questions and input their ideas – that’s just a beautiful collaborative process.”
