THAC PREVIEW: The Clean House

Hello THAC Friends, Family, & Followers!

The Clean House is THAC’s one & only straight play this season, among 5 other musicals in our 2014-2015 Season Main Stage Productions. Written by Sarah Ruhl, this romantic comedy follows the lovely Brazilian Matilde, an aspiring stand-up comedian and housekeeper who’s more interested in coming up with the perfect joke than cleaning house! The story unfolds in “metaphysical Connecticut,” mostly in the home of married couple Dr Lane and Dr Charles. This theatrical and wildly funny play is a whimsical and poignant look at class, comedy and the true nature of love.

 The Clean House has received radiant reviews from a number of critics.  Variety called the play a “…wondrously mad and moving work…” and Charles Isherwood of The New York Times dubbed it a deeply romantic comedy, “…visionary, tinged with fantasy, extravagant in feeling, maybe a little nuts.” Peter Marks, reviewing the Woolly Mammoth Theatre production, wrote: “As with most original voices, it takes a while to tune into Ruhl’s wavelength. Once connected, though, you commune warmly with her funny and compassionate sense of life’s metamorphosing rewards and punishments.”Entertainment Weekly magazine named the New York production one of the top ten theatrical attractions of the year in 2006.

Winning the 2004 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, awarded annually to the best English-language play written by a woman, and a Pulitzer Prize finalist – THAC is kicking and screaming for opening night to see how legendary director Robert Wells has adapted this story for the Town Hall Arts Center stage!

Join THAC JAN 9 – FEB 1, 2015 for The Clean House!
