Why We Chose to Program a Play About Eliza Haycraft…

Madam-The Musical is a totally new play we commissioned to end our 2019 season dedicated to the theme of The American Experience.  Back in March, we performed David Stanley Ford’s intense work The Interrogation of Nathan Hale as a way of exploring the idealistic aspirations of those who founded America- a nation that would treat all equally, be free from religious oppression and give every man a say in how the country would be run.  In subsequent productions, we revisited these aspirations through the eyes of some of those Americans- Fanny Kemble and the slaves she sought to free, Molly…

Today is Monday March 25th…You Have Four Chances Left!

  Last week, the curtain rose on another season at Bluff City Theater with our debut of A. S. Freeman’s powerful production of David Stanley Ford’s The Interrogation of Nathan Hale. History has a way of over-simplifying events and presenting complicated and messy affairs as summary headlines (#Nathanhalehero).  But history is never simple and the conflicting perspectives, motivations and emotions that lead up to momentous events all contribute to a messy and convoluted route to resolution.  It is that messy route that the playwright explores in his story of the final hours of 21-year-old Nathan Hale as he awaits execution…

Are You A Fan of American History?

History buffs are going to love The Interrogation of Nathan Hale by Captain John Montresor.  Based on real-life events, David Stanley Ford’s thoughtful and intense script captures the final hours of Nathan Hale before he is executed as the first spy in the service of America.  Through the eyes of young Hale and Montresor, a career soldier in the service of King George, we explore the naive optimism of those who sought independence from what was then the richest and most powerful nation on Earth. For this performance, out theater is transformed into Montresor’s campaign tent on Manhattan Island as…
