The Reckless Season begins performances April 21st

Please join us for the World Premiere Production of

THE RECKLESS SEASON
Written by LAUREN FEREBEE
Directed by DOMINIC D’ANDREA

April 21st – May 7th, 2017

Starring CHASE BURNETT, BRIAN MORVANT, TRACE POPE and AMANDA TUDOR

It’s 2008 in small town USA, and there is nothing Norman Rockwell about it. Lisa and Simon used to be soldiers, but they’re trying to put all that behind them. Except Simon’s mother just committed suicide, Lisa’s marriage is falling apart, the local meth dealer won’t leave them alone and the only calm person in town is Simon’s odd brother Terry, who spends all his time playing video games. Wrestling with the aftermath of death, and realization that no one knows what comes next, these four Americans grasp toward adulthood in a place they dream of leaving.

Isaiah Tanenbaum Theatrical Photography

We’re giving a special shout out to our friend Isaiah Tanenbaum, who has photographed Boomerang’s productions and special events since 2012. His photos are incredible and capture so much.

Here’s a sampling of some of his work for Boomerang over the years:

You can see more of Isaiah’s photography here and here.

In addition, he’s a very fine actor, and created the role of Napoleon in Johnna Adams’ LICKSPITTLES, BUTTONHOLERS AND DAMNED PERNICIOUS GO-BETWEENS in 2013.

Grab yours masks and beads…It’s BARDI GRAS on February 28th!

For one night only, the sultry nights and cascading music of New Orleans come together with the poetry of Stratford Upon Avon. Tap into the spirit of the night for some romance, cocktails, masks, beads and adventure…

Mark your calendars and prepare to style yourself as a Shakespearean character, a famous New Orleanian, or a provocative mash-up of your own design. Masks are optional… and just a little decadent.

Welcome to the night you have been longing for.

Announcing dates and venue for THE RECKLESS SEASON

Hello everyone…

Happy New Year! We’re incredibly excited to announce additional details for the world premiere production of THE RECKLESS SEASON by Lauren Ferebee, Boomerang’s first production of 2017.

THE RECKLESS SEASON will begin performances April 21st, 2017 at TheaterLab NYC (357 W 36th Street, NYC). The production will be directed by Dominic D’Andrea, with designs by Boomerang alums Kia Rogers (Lights) and Philip Emeott (Projections), along with Scott Tedmon-Jones (Sets), Andy Evan Cohen (Sound) and Viviane Galloway (Costumes). Antonio Minino and Kampfire Films PR return to handle press/publicity duties. Full casting will be announced shortly.

About the play:
It’s 2008 in small town USA, and there is nothing Norman Rockwell about it. Simon’s returned home after two tours in Iraq to find his alcoholic mother dead by suicide and his younger brother, Terry, strangely obsessed with an early-90s videogame about ancient Sparta. Between Terry, Terry’s truck stop co-worker, Lisa, and Flynn, their mother’s co-dependent former drug dealer, Simon’s dream of peace and quiet quickly evaporates. Wrestling with the aftermath of death, and realization that no one knows what comes next, these four Americans grasp toward adulthood in a place they dream of leaving. 

THE RECKLESS SEASON will run for 14 performances from April 21st thru May 7th, 2017. Tickets will go on sale on Feb 15th.
