Hey folks…so many of you have heard about how exciting THE RECKLESS SEASON is going to be. I wanted to share some snaps from rehearsal this week. The cast is crushing it, and director Dominic D’Andrea is a rock star. Below are pics of actors Trace Pope (dark shirt), Chase Burnett (red shirt) and Amanda Tudor… (cast member not pictured Brian Morvant was in the hall terrorizing ASM Alex Grant)
Take a look…
(The picture above is from the prompt script of Stage Manager Elise Keller, and it this is a fascinating looking into her world that we rarely see. )
Hi everyone…we’re beyond excited with how THE RECKLESS SEASON is going. We begin performances on Friday April 21st at TheaterLab, and it’s going to rip the roof off the place (it’s cool, we have insurance). You can still grab your tickets here.
Warning: We Only Have a Limited Supply!!! Get them now or risk not getting to see the show at all. We Cannot Add More Seats or More Performances!! (Disclaimer over)
Here’s a link to a great interview with Lauren Ferebee, playwright extraordinaire of THE RECKLESS SEASON. Check it out!
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.

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).

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.
