|New Drama by Emmy Award Winner Premieres
Previews begin May 18
Tom Noonan's Paradise Factory Theater hosts the World Premiere of REPRISE, a new American drama written and directed by by Emmy Award winner Eric Maierson. The production stars Ken Forman, Tara Westwood and Sean Patrick Folster. Previews begin May 18 with opening night slated for Friday, May 26.
REPRISE revolves around Michael, a middle-aged man whose life has been less than successful. For nearly three decades, he’s been in love with his high school classmate Erin. But more than love, his feelings for her are wrapped in longing and a belief that she somehow possesses the ability to deliver him a better life. But Erin also has a secret. Add to the mix Michael’s potentially volatile friend Leonard, plus quite a bit of alcohol, and watch the sparks fly.
The production team includes Monique Vukovic (assistant director), Josh Iacovelli (scenic design/ production manager), Daisy Long (lighting), Dustin Cross (costumes), Charles Casano (stage manager), and Alice Hakvaag (assistant stage manager).
Ken Forman appeared on Broadway in The Tony Award-nominated Wilder, Wilder, Wilder – Three by Thornton, and Off and Off-Off Broadway in new plays including Grant Varjas’ 33 to Nothing and Accidentally Like a Martyr, and Tom Noonan’s What the Hell’s Your Problem? His TV credits include Boardwalk Empire, all of Law &Order, Onion News, and Chappelle’s Show. Film credits include Not Fade A way, Kingdom Coming, and Hotel Pennsylvania.
Tara Westwood was a model and has worked with Chanel, Neutrogena, Guerlain, Italian Vogue, Elle, Flare, and many others. She now acts in TV, film, and theater and has been called an "indie starlet." Some of her work includes Blue Bloods, The Good Wife, Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, Unforgettable, Surviving Family, Ugly Betty, and Cashmere Mafia. Tara recently produced her first film, Detours, which she stars in with Paul Sorvino and Richard Kind. She has the films Depraved, Karma Club, and Douglas Brown heading to festivals and theaters.
Sean Patrick Folster's recent TV credits include Gotham, Mr. Robot, The Good Wife, Law & Order: SVU, Madame Secretary, The Blacklist, and Brain Dead. He's appeared in over 30 plays in New York and elsewhere, most recently The Seafarer at 13th Street Rep.
