Production History

Expressing Willie  | Open: 04/06/07 Close: 04/22/07
EXPRESSING WILLIE by Rachel Crothers is a clever comedy about a man, who through the urging of his mother finds himself obscenely wealthy in Long Island. With newfound money and an increased ego, Willie Smith finds himself in an unfamiliar plane, involved with free thinkers and all that accompanies sordid wealth – until his former unsophisticated girlfriend arrives and pits Midwestern values against the idle rich. By the time Willie realizes he has been a self-centered fool, it may be too late.... Before The Great Gatsby (some even say it inspired F. Scott Fitzgerald), Rachel Crothers wrote about this obscenely wealthy group of Long Islanders. The play takes place inside a ridiculously magnificent Italian Mansion with all the ‘down-home warmth of the Metropolitan Museum'. John Corbin of the NY times wrote in April of 1924 "A very wonderful thing happened last night in the theatre" and went on to praise every aspect of Expressing Willie – highlighting its satiric comedy! Other reviews of the time say "60 seconds of delight for every minute of stage time!" This was an audience favorite of the year and played for 281 performances.

The production stars Maria Silverman as Minnie, Ann Parker as Mrs. Smith, Rhonda Ayers as Taliaferro, Wynne Anders as Dolly, Michael Frederic as George, Dan Jacoby as Willie, Simone Lazer as Frances, and Akiva Penaloza as Footman

Les Belles Soeurs (The Beautiful Sisters)  | Open: 05/05/05 Close: 05/22/05
This rarely performed modern comedy classic is set in the early 60s. The main character, a working-class housewife, has won a million trading stamps in a contest. Family, friends and neighbors come together for a book-stamping marathon – bitter jealousies, parochial frustrations and personal emergencies make for a raucously hysterical and poignant gathering.

Mary The Third  | Open: 11/13/08 Close: 12/07/08
WOMAN SEEKING... a theatre company is pleased to announce open their 11th Season with the production, MARY THE THIRD directed by Katrin Hilbe. MARY THE THIRD, the company's 19th production, is being produced in New York for the first time since it's 1923 premiere at the 39th Street theatre – produced by Shubert and starring George Howard and Louise Huff. It ran for 152 performances. The show will play a limited engagement – ten performances only - at West End Theatre (263 W. 86th Street) Performances begin with a preview on Thursday, November 13 and continue until Sunday, December 7. Opening Night is Friday, November 14 at 7:30 pm.

In the dramedy Mary the Third, three generations of "Mary's" ponder the question--Is there only one love in a lifetime or is "free love" the solution? Rachel Crothers' classic wit and shrewd observations show us that every generation will struggle anew to answer the pesky relationship riddle!

Produced in 1923, it is interesting to note how relevant the question remains, and how, 80 years later, we still want to avoid the mistakes of our elders, but continue to let our desires trump our most brilliant thinking!

The production features scenic design by Heidi B. Andersson, costume design by Meredith Neal, and lighting design and stage management by Elliot Lanes. Katharina Tapp is the sound designer and GridKid is the graphic designer.
