Theater Voices will present a staged reading of A Life in the Theatre by David Mamet, directed by Bob Goepfert, on Friday, May 18 at 8pm; Saturday, May 19 at 3pm and 8pm; and Sunday, May 20 at 3pm at Steamer No. 10 Theatre, 500 Western Avenue, Albany. House opens one half-hour before performance. *Admission is free.*
The piece shows us two actors,* both onstage and behind the scenes: one young and rising into the first full flush of his success (Ethan Botwick); the other older, anxious and beginning to wane (John Romeo). In a series of short, spare and increasingly raw exchanges, we see the estrangement of youth from age and the wider, inevitable, endlessly cyclical rhythm of the world.
