The press was invited for a sneak peek to see what’s up with the new comedy beginning performances shortly at the Davenport Theatre and featuring the directorial debut of two time Tony winner Christian Borle.
TheaterPizzazz’ Magda Katz was on the scene to interview, film and take photos.
Welcome to Popcorn Falls, a small American town, whose only claim to fame – their namesake waterfall – has dried up. Now bankrupt, their last chance is a large grant that can only be used if the town produces a play in a week. One big problem: ain’t no playhouse. Another problem? Ain’t no play. Led by the Mayor and the local handyman, the enterprising townsfolk try to rise to the challenge and prove that art can change the world.
The production is directed by celebrated two-time Tony winner Christian Borle in his New York directorial debut. Mr. Borle reunites with playwright/actor James Hindman, having previously collaborated on the premiere of Popcorn Falls at the Riverbank Theatre in Marine City, Michigan.
Featuring Adam Heller (Broadway’s It Shoulda Been You, Elf the Musical, Classic Stage Company’s Peer Gynt) and Tom Souhrada (Desperate Measures, Broadway’s Mary Poppins), Popcorn Falls is a small town with two actors playing over twenty roles in under ninety minutes. Producers: Joanna Allen Lodin and Lynne Halliday.
Popcorn Falls begins performances on September 14, 2018 at the Davenport Theatre on 45th Street (354 W 45th between 8th and 9th avenues) and have its official opening on October 8, 2018. For more information, please visit www.popcornfalls.com.
