NEW PLAY AT INVISIBLE THEATRE ISNEW YORK BOUND
- By Chuck Graham
"In the Mood" by Kathleen Clark has been a work in progress, and it may still be one. Clark isn't sure. Invisible Theatre's own Susan Claassen is directing the production of "In the Mood" that opens here Sept.7 to kick off the venerable company's 41st season.
"In the Mood" is set in a very upscale penthouse apartment with its own private elevator. The story begins with a woman (Betsy Kruse Craig) planning a surprise birthday party for her husband (Kevin Black). When the elevator gets stuck with her unsuspecting husband inside, the dominoes begin to fall.
This high-rise tale turns on mistaken identities, infidelity, a stressed out marriage and love lost…then found. "In the Mood," is described as "a charming comedy that sings with witty repartee and sparkling humor."
Also in the cast are Jack Neubeck, Lori Hunt, Bruce Morganti and Polly (Bourke) Schlitz.
Clark will attend the opening night performance at Invisible Theatre on Sept. 7, then on Sept. 8 lead a post-show discussion describing how her play made that evolution from the page to the stage.
