Different Stages continues its 2022-2023 season with The Tavern by George M Cohan a co-production with Austin Scottish Rite Theater. This rollicking melodrama, first produced in the 1920's, is set in (obviously) a tavern on a "dark and lonely road in the middle of the night." During a fierce storm (CRASH) the tavern owner (BANG!), his son and their servants give lodging to the Governor and his family, a vengeful woman (EEK!) and...a mysterious vagabond.
Directed by Norman Blumensaadt (Shining City), The Tavern features Greg Ginther (The Thanksgiving Play), Ev Lunning (The Dresser), Michael Lucas (Heartbreak House), Tom Chamberlain (The Goat or Who is Sylvia), Annie Merritt (The Cricket on the Hearth), Kirstin Fern Johnson (Heartbreak House), Jessica Medina (The Cricket on the Hearth), Emily Villarreal (A Doll’s House), Robert Stevens (Great Expectations), Ty Wiley (The Grapes of Wrath), Jack Baziuk (All is Calm) and Steven Fay (Heartbreak House).
