Sunday night, February 12 saw the opening of Alan Hruska’s Ring Twice For Miranda, directed by Rick Lombardo, at New York City Center Stage II. Ring Twice for Miranda is a tragi-comedy set in difficult times, roiled by economic upheavals. A man known only as Sir rules with a vengeance, but it’s Miranda, a chambermaid, who adds intrigue to his life. When Elliot, the butler, is fired, she flees with him in defiance onto the frightening streets. All must soon make critical decisions with imperfect facts to guide them, since little in their world is as it appears.
Theater Pizzazz’s JK Clarke was on hand to photograph first nighter guests and the cast of Ring Twice For Miranda: William Connell (A View From the Bridge, The Coast of Utopia), Katie Kleiger (Juno and the Paycock, Blue Stockings, Miss Bennet), Ian Lassiter (War Horse, An Octoroon), Graeme Malcolm (Equus, Translations, Aida), George Merrick (Honeymoon In Vegas, South Pacific, High Fidelity), Daniel Pearce (Machinal, …Spelling Bee), Talia Thiesfield (Man of La Mancha,”Veep”), director Rick Lombardo (San Jose Rep Artistic Director from 2008-2014, The Snow Queen, Bill W. and Dr. Bob) and playwright Alan Hruska (Laugh It Up, Stare It Down; The Man on Her Mind; New House Under Construction).
