Tonight at The Greenwin Theatre at Toronto Centre for the Arts, "The Model Apartment" opens. Directed by Tanja Jacobs, and starring Eric Peterson, Clare Coulter, Lisa Norton and Tony Ofori, "The Model Apartment" is a play written by Donald Margulies that is set in Florida in 1988. A summary of it reads:
"When Max and Lola, two Holocaust survivors from Brooklyn, uproot their lives to Florida, they find their new condo unfinished and are forced to spend the night in a 'model apartment' where things are not always as they seem. In this brilliant and bizarre Drama Desk-nominated black comedy, Max and Lola soon realize that if they ever want to truly escape they must first confront the demons of their past."
It runs from tonight until May 29th, so get your tickets while you can HERE. It's an important play, and a project that I feel very fortunate to have done the composition and sound design for. (Mika Posen performed some of the string arrangements - she's fantastic as always!) A group of incredibly talented people have worked to bring this show together, and in my opinion, it is a show worth seeing - and worth thinking about for long after the show itself is over. -jB
