December 19, 2013
Theatre Aspen has announced its lineup of productions for its 2014 summer season. The season will open June 24 in Theatre Aspen's Hurst Theatre, located in Rio Grande Park.
The summer season, the organization's 31st, will kick off with "The Full Monty." The musical comedy, an Americanized adaptation of the 1997 British film, opened on Broadway in 2001 and earned 10 Tony Award nominations. The local production will be directed by Mark Martino, whose previous credits in Aspen include "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee" and "Avenue Q."
Theatre Aspen executive artist director Paige Price will direct a production of "Little Women," opening July 2. The adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's 1860s novel of four sisters growing up in Massachusetts opened on Broadway in 2005.
Also in the season is the new play "The Cottage," Sandy Rustin's romantic, comedic, crime-filled farce inspired by the writing of Noel Coward and set in the 1920s English countryside. Don Stephenson, who is set to direct a production of "Titanic" this winter at Lincoln Center, will direct.
Theatre Aspen's 2013 season, which set a record for attendance, featured "Les Miserables," "Fully Committed" and "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown."
