Nominee! 2012 Drama League Award for Distinguished Production of a Play
In Seminar, a provocative comedy from Pulitzer Prize nominee Theresa Rebeck, four aspiring novelists sign up for private writing classes with Leonard (Roger Montalbano), an international literary figure. Under his recklessly brilliant and unorthodox instruction, some thrive and others flounder, alliances are made and broken, sex is used as a weapon and hearts are unmoored. The wordplay is not the only thing that turns vicious as innocence collides with experience in this biting Blue Room Comedy comedy.
Director Joe Hilsee brings many of his usual suspects to deftly create the acting ensemble: Amber Miler, Shawn Galloway, Jesse Mills, Suzanne Papini and Roger Montalbano. Playing for three weeks only, this is sure to be a crowd favorite as s the Blue Room once again sets out to prove that the sexiest organ in the human body is the brain.
