A NEW VIOLET WESTON FOR AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY
PHYLICIA RASHAD, the Tony Award winning actress, will make it a triad of defining matriarchal performances when she takes over the role of Violet Weston in August: Osage County on Tuesday, May 26th. Rashad, who won her Tony for Lena Younger in Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun and who won equal acclaim and a Tony nomination for her performance as Aunt Esther in August Wilson’s The Gem of the Ocean, will play the pill-popping, acid-tongued, no-holds barred central figure in Tracy Letts’ Pulitzer-Prize and Tony Award winning drama at the Music Box Theatre. Rashad, who follows in the footsteps of award-winning actresses Deanna Dunagan and Estelle Parsons, will join Tony Award winning cast members Elizabeth Ashley, John Cullum, and Frank Wood under the direction of Anna D. Shapiro. August: Osage County is continuing its record-breaking run at the Music Box Theatre.
The cast of August: Osage County currently includes: Elizabeth Ashley, Guy Boyd, John Cullum, Johanna Day, Kimberly Guerrero, Brian Kerwin, Madeleine Martin, Mariann Mayberry, Michael Milligan, Sally Murphy, Estelle Parsons, Troy West & Frank Wood.
August: Osage County is directed by Anna D. Shapiro. The design team includes Todd Rosenthal (sets), Ana Kuzmanic (costumes), Ann Wrightson (lights), Richard Woodbury (sound) and David Singer (original music).
August: Osage County is produced on Broadway by Jeffrey Richards, Jean Doumanian, Steve Traxler, Jerry Frankel, Ostar Productions, Jennifer Manocherian, The Weinstein Company, Debra Black/Daryl Roth, Ronald & Marc Frankel/Barbara Freitag, and Rick Steiner/Staton Bell Group.

TMTC would like to invite you to come see one of their new plays “Blacken the Bubble” written by Eric Lockley and directed by Deena Selenow March 25/26 at 7:00pm.
Don’t over look this chance to experience this amazing play that examines post racial time as we proceed into the AGE of OBAMA. This play asks questions about race, sexuality, and class, just to name a few, as we embark on a country celebrating it’s first black president when the KKK are still an organization and a bakery in Greenwich Village can create cookies like the Drunken Negro Face for “fun”. With a country full of all these contradictions this play helps to create a space where this conversation can finally begin. I hope you are able to make it to the show and I hope you check out our website to find out more about us.
Synopsis of Blacken the Bubble:
Blacken the Bubble is a fast-paced comedic romp that explores an extra-ordinary day in an office attempting to “diversify” their workplace. When the new black employee fails to fill in his race on the government forms, the office goes to wacky extremes to amend his “mistake”. As schemes get crazier and the stakes get higher who will pull the ultimate race card?
