For this Salon, Artistic Director Matt Cahoon and playwright A.J. Ditty, joined by some of tKAPOW’s core company members, will draw back the curtain to reveal the collaborative process the company uses to produce new works of theatre, and will also announce their full slate of shows for season 12, some of which will be performed at the Bank of New Hampshire Stage.
As part of theatre KAPOW’s season announcement, Estelle Parsons will be performing a monologue from her upcoming production of Tony Kushner’s A Bright Room Called Day. Although she has spent most of her professional life in the theatre, she is most widely known for her Academy Award-winning performance as Blanche Barrow in Bonnie and Clyde and her ten years playing Beverly, mother of the title character in the hit sitcom Roseanne. In 2014, Ms. Parsons was inducted in the Theater Hall of Fame. Ms. Parsons will be returning to the Bank of NH Stage in August with a piece that she directed for the Actors Studio entitled Re-Entry: Actors Playing Jazz.
