It’s April 1st, 1919, and the young independent publisher John Pace Seavering is setting up his office: a couple of dilapidated rooms in a romantic Manhattan tower. With only enough capital to put out one book, John finds himself besieged by two authors. Denny McCleary, John’s brash and gifted college friend, has produced a manuscript so unruly it lives in a trio of crates. Denny has a surprise imperative: He’s fallen in love with the enchanting heiress Rosamund Plinth, and if John doesn’t agree to publish his book today, he’ll lose her forever. But John is also being strenuously lobbied by Jessie Brewster, the popular black jazz singer who is also John’s very secret mistress. She’s written her memoirs and is determined to have her story known. As John temporizes with these two, another drama is playing out in the anteroom: A machine of mysterious provenance and purpose has arrived and is spewing out stacks of pages while John’s hapless assistant, Gidger, strives vainly to stem the flood. What’s written on these pages will throw John’s every hope and plan into disarray.
Families are asked to arrive by 9:40 am to check in so our group can be seated in plenty of time before the 10am curtain call. This production has a running time of approximately 120 minutes.
This production is recommended for students in 9th grade and older. Student and adult tickets are $11 each. This is not a drop off field trip, an adult must accompany their student(s) to this production. Please note, paid parking is available at a parking garage (Cumberland Plaza Garage) located across from the courthouse, and metered spaces on the street. A payment of 25 cents is required to activate the meter; this payment will get you 15 minutes of parking PLUS one courtesy hour. It is then $2 for each additional hour (up to 4 hours). (Most performances it would cost roughly $2.25 to park.) Meters accept Visa/MasterCard and coins (quarters, dimes and nickels). Patrons should not park in the lot directly behind and beside the theatre, as it is owned by the city, and they will be ticketed without an authorized hang tag.
Tickets on sale until 5 pm on February 22, 2023, unless they sell out sooner. This trip requires a minimum in order to proceed.
