Last year, in an effort to set itself apart from Buffalo’s two dozen other professional and semi-pro theater companies and emphasize its summer lineup, Torn Space Theater announced it was “redefining the theater season.”
Under the East Side company’s new definition, the theater season now runs from March to November. And it has nailed down its schedule for 2015.
First up, from March 5 to 29, the company presents Eugene O’Neill’s classic “The Hairy Ape” directed by Torn Space co-founder Dan Shanahan. From June 18 to 20, work by composer Jonathan Golove will be featured and “set against the soundscape of a live gospel choir.”
“They Kill Things,” a follow-up to Torn Space’s popular outdoor summertime spectacles “Motion Picture” and “Storehouse” by Shanahan, will play out at Silo City from Aug. 13 to 22. And, after the company’s annual “Prom of the Dead” fundraiser on Oct. 24, the season will wrap up with a production of Ingmar Bergman’s “Nora,” an adaptation of Ibsen’s “A Doll’s House,” directed by former New Phoenix Theatre Artistic Director Robert Waterhouse.
