Richmond Triangle Players Announces 20th Anniversary Season!


We are proud supporters of Richmond's Triangle Players, whose theatre at 1300 Altamont Avenue is just a few blocks from Maury Place. In fact, Jeff is entering his second year as a member of the theater's board. The 2012-13 season is the 20th Anniversary Season of Triangle Players, and it promises to be one of its best ever!

Opening on September 19 and running through October 13, 2012 is Regrets Only, by Paul Rudnick. A comedy of Manhattan manners by one or our favorite playwrights, Regrets Only explores the latest topics in marriage, friendship, and squandered riches. Next will be Howard Crabtree's Whoop Dee Doo!, which will run from November 14 through December 29, 2012. The companion piece to one of RTP's biggest hits, When Pigs Fly, Whoop Dee Doo offers a similar dizzying array of songs, sketches and outrageous costumes. It will be a spectacle on a shoestring and a valentine to classic musical theater. Next will be Before It Hits Home, from January 16 to February 2, 2013. Winner of the Helen Hayes Award for Best New Play, Before It Hits Home tells the story of a bisexual black jazz musician whose double life endangers both himself and his loved ones.


The Busy World is Hushed will be presented as part of the citywide Acts of Faith Festival and will run from February 20, 2013 through March 16, 2013. With wisdom, humor and insight, this play examines the contradictions we find in our faith, our families, and ourselves. Hannah, a widowed Episcopal minister, is hoping to translate a long lost gospel when she is challenged by her scholarly assistant and her wayward gay son. The Pride is one of the most acclaimed new plays of recent years and alternates between 1958 and 2008 and features the same three people living similar yet radically different lives. It examines the changing attitudes toward sexuality over a period of fifty years. It was the winner of the 2010 Olivier Award for Best New Play. It will run from April 3 to April 27. 2013.

Finally, the 20th Anniversary Season closes with a production of the musical La Cage Aux Folles by Harvey Fierstein and Jerry Herman. The legendary musical comes to RTP in a fresh, new, and intimate production. La Cage is a tuneful and touching tale of one family's struggle to stay together . . . stay fabulous . . . and above all else, stay true to themselves. This show will run from May 15, 2013 through June 29, 2013. Attend a play at Triangle Players and receive ten percent of your stay at Maury Place on the evening of the show!
