MESSAGE FROM THE ARTISTIC DIRECTOR AND MANAGING DIRECTOR
Welcome to the Hangar Theatre Company’s 2019 season! This summer’s plays are dedicated to the Essential Theatre – both what makes theatre essential, and plays that are essentially theatrical. “Compose yourself for pleasure,” as the prologue to Or, What She Will, puts it: these productions are rich in what makes theatre an enduring, irreplaceable experience. Immediacy and intimacy are profound elements in what makes theatre essential. As you leave the theatre humming your favorite tune from Into the Woods or Kinky Boots, we hope you’ll feel how the transcendence of that live experience surpasses either of their cinematic equivalents (and the film Kinky Boots wasn’t even a musical!) Recent studies have found that “experiences” contribute more to happiness than “things”; the electricity of live theatre should put it firmly in the happiness column. The ability to use metaphor to leap space and time is another essential quality of the theatre. A stage can transform from a forest to a factory, from Civil War America to the city of London with a simple light cue. Or, What She Will takes place in the Restoration Comedy period of the 1660s, but is infused with the free spirit of the 1960s. Little Women, in Kate Hamill’s adaptation, loosens its Victorian garb and transforms into a tale that speaks to people of all ages today, much like her Pride and Prejudice did here last year.
We are celebrating the most essential unit of theatre with our Big Play Festival!: the experience of the spoken word on stage in real time. When first performed, the words of great drama have an uncanny ability to resonate in the present moment. A Raisin In The Sun, which premiered in 1959, reminds us of the universality of the American Dream. August: Osage County shows how the people who inflict the most tumult and violence can also be the ones who love you most. Kaufman and Hart’s You Can’t Take It With You, the ultimate feel-good family comedy, paved the way for what has now become a popular genre. And what is the most essential element in the theatre? You, the audience. You are absolutely necessary, the final component without whom nothing else would exist—there is no theatrical link nor essential communication without you! Thank you for choosing to spend your time with us this season. Enjoy the show!

LETTER FROM JESSICA CASEY, BOARD PRESIDENT
Hangar Theatre Board of Trustees President Jessica Casey Vice President Kristen Burt Treasurer & Past President Margaret Shackell Secretary Bonnie Osadchey
The only time I ever appeared onstage was in high school, when I had a small non-speaking part in one very terrible production. We didn’t have any theatre budget, so the P.E. teacher was the director and also the playwright. It’s one of the things I really felt like I missed out on in school. Although I didn’t have the chance to make plays as a child, I had the next best thing: ample opportunity to attend the theatre. My mother and grandmother always loved the theatre, and my mother did costumes for the high school and local community productions. I got to tag along to the shows. There was something magical about seeing the dress she’d been sewing at the kitchen table all of a sudden be in a different time and place completely. It is still what I find unique about the theatre: that magic of everyday things becoming and creating a whole different world.
people and humanity. It can be hard to find that perspective in our polarized world. I think that theatre that makes me uncomfortable is good for me, it helps me remember that everyone’s story has value. Oh, and I’ll love anything with Hugh Jackman in it. I’ve been coming to the Hangar since I was a high school student, when I participated in the Cornell Summer College. I remember sitting in back of the theatre watching The Normal Heart, A Doll’s House, The Pajama Game, and something about a theatre in an old airplane hangar just stuck with me. Again, an everyday thing being transformed into a new world. When I was trying to decide where to settle as an adult, the Hangar is one of the things that drew me back to Ithaca.
As president of the Board, it is my pleasure and honor to serve an The exposure to theatre as a child made institution that has given me so much over the years. And I’m delighted to me into a lifelong theatregoer. As a physician, I am interested in how to heal share that institution with all of you this summer. Most of the theatre that’s made the body. As an audience member, in our country is done for the love of it I am interested in healing my soul. I and the Hangar gives people a home find that theatre helps me look at the world and relate to others in ways that I in which to do that. All of these artists and administrators and technicians work wouldn’t without it. Spending time with to create this magic, a place for us to someone else’s vision while trying to connect to each other and to our world. dismantle my own preconceived ideas is something that gives me insight into

Playwright, lover, or… spy? In a world of romance and intrigue, can Aphra save the life of King Charles II and launch her budding writing career all in one night? With her muse, Nell Gwynne, interrupting? With echoes of Restoration comedy, this farce is a mad, literate romp of formidable wit. Previously produced and published under the title Or, this play is based on the actual life of Aphra Behn, who is considered the first professional female playwright.
This modern twist on classic fairy tales begins with characters you know and love, like Cinderella and her wicked step sisters, Rapunzel and The Witch, Jack and his beleaguered mom, Little Red Riding Hood and The Wolf, and other favorites. What will they discover when they venture away from home and into the scary, wild, often unpredictable woods? It’s a soaring musical about the power of wishes— and what really happens when they come true.
JUST STEPPED OFF BROADWAY! As Charlie Price struggles to save his family’s failing business, help arrives in the unlikely form of Lola, a drag queen in need of some eye-catching new stilettos. With music and lyrics by pop icon Cindy Lauper, and a book by Broadway legend and four-time Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein (La Cage Aux Folles), Kinky Boots is the winner of six Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Score, and Best Choreography.

As a director, Michael has worked in New York and across the country developing new plays and staging classics.

He is an avid boardgame player, and a proud member of the New York Ramblers, the world’s first openly-gay soccer club. His first novel, One Man Guy, published by Macmillan (Farrar, Straus & Giroux), was ranked the #1 Gay Young Adult novel on Goodreads in 2014, named to the Rainbow List and Family Equality Council’s Book Nook, and released in Brazil by LeYa. The sequel, Hold My Hand was just released this year.
MARYBETH BUNGE, Managing Director, returned to the Hangar Theatre management team in October, 2017; she had previously served as the Hangar’s development director throughout the Hangar for All Season’s Campaign (2007-2011), which resulted in the opening of the renovated yearround theatre. She has held a range of leadership positions in non-profit organizations including director of the NYS CDFI Coalition, development director for Alternatives Impact and director of communications for Cornell University Libraries. She taught fundraising in the performing arts for seven years in Ithaca College’s Theatre Arts Management program and served as a fund-raising consultant for numerous non-profits. Trained in acting and directing at Macalester College, MaryBeth honed her performance skills as a musician instead of an actor in punk, new wave, and folk ensembles in Minneapolis, MN and Columbus, OH. MaryBeth is a singer and Board member with The Dorothy Cotton Jubilee Singers. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in English/Theatre (Macalester College), a Master of Science in Textiles & Clothing (Miami University) and a Master of Library Science (Kent State University). THENA GITLIN, Marketing Director, was born in Ithaca, and has a long relationship with the Hangar. She used to see shows starting with KIDDSTUFF when she was young, ushered as a teenager, and also attended the Next Generation School of Theater for several summers. She was in musicals throughout school, and has always been very passionate about the arts. She graduated in three
years from the College at Brockport, SUNY with a Bachelors in Psychology. She was the house manager at the Tower Fine Arts Center in Brockport her senior year. Since graduating, Thena has held several management and marketing roles for local non-profits in Cortland and Ithaca. These include the Women’s Opportunity Center, the J.M. McDonald Sports Complex, Primitive Pursuits, and most recently she served as the executive director of the Cultural Council of Cortland County. Thena enjoys the outdoors, spending time with friends and family, and cuddling her cats. ALEXA ALLMANN, Audience Services Manager, joins us from Virginia where she was raised in a theatre-centric home, studying musical instruments, dance, acting, and technical theatre through her high school years at the York County School of the Arts. She has performed in principal roles for stage productions including You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown; Footloose; Little Shop of Horrors; Nunsense; and Cinderella; as well as two international performances in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Alexa branched out at the University of Virginia, where she majored in Women & Gender Studies and completed a Master’s in Christian Education at Union Presbyterian Seminary in 2017. She currently enjoys writing and performing original music to satisfy her theatrical identity. Alexa is elated to return to her roots in the performing arts. DENISE McENERNEY, Operations Manager, has lived in Ithaca since 1989 with her husband, Joe, but her connection to the area goes back to the late 1970s. New to the
non-profit world, she joined the Hangar staff in 2010 after many years working in the corporate software world, and hasn’t looked back. Outside the office, Denise makes wine with her husband, gardens, and studies her family’s genealogy. NATHAN NORCROSS, Education Director & Artistic Associate, is originally from Kansas City, with stints in NYC, CT, DC, and FL. Nathan relocated to Ithaca to serve as the Hangar Theatre’s education director & artistic associate. As a director, Nathan’s career has spanned a variety of genres and forms—from largescale musicals to intimate chamber pieces, from developing new plays in collaboration with living playwrights to developing his own adaptation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth for two actors. He has also produced and directed regional premieres of Andrew Lippa’s John & Jen and Lucas Hnath’s Red Speedo. In addition to directing, Nathan has been selected for artistic fellowship and apprentice roles at the Westport Country Playhouse and DC’s Studio Theatre where he worked alongside a number of directors he is now fortunate to consider mentors, including: Bob Moss, Mark Lamos, David Muse, Kent Gash, Nicky Martin, Eric Rosen, and Phylicia Rashad. An actor for a number of years, Nathan earned a BFA in acting at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, later earning his MFA in directing at Florida State University. He is a proud member of both AEA and SDC. Nathan also spent five years at the nationally recognized Coterie Theatre as a resident lead teaching artist and is eager to bring that experience here to the Hangar.

Adam holds an MFA in Technical Direction from the University of Connecticut and a BA in Theatre from Bucknell University. Love to Renee, Taryn and Genevieve.
WALTER WEINER, Business Director, an Ithaca native, has an MBA with a focus in networks and communications from the Keller School of Management, and a BA in Psychology from the University of Rochester. He has a long background in the entertainment industry doing everything from performing, to building sets, to working in Wardrobe departments. He began his professional career at the Hangar Theatre in the early ‘90s. He then worked on Broadway, as a principal dresser on The Lion King, and an ensemble dresser on Beauty and the Beast. While in NYC, he also had opportunities to work in television, film, and at Radio City Music Hall (Christmas Spectacular), all in Wardrobe. Walter
so much in common, has been really inspiring.” Stephanie says her parents, Elizabeth and Leland Waite, have also been very supportive. “They’ve always encouraged me to try my best and never give up!”
WAITE DEVELOPMENT COORDINATOR Stephanie Waite, a native of the Southern Tier and Ithaca College graduate, has always been drawn to the arts. An avid reader since childhood, she always looked forward to visiting art museums on family vacations. In high school she also enjoyed seeing shows, such as Les Misérables staged by Union-Endicott High School, where her mother teaches calculus. “Theatre is so different from other recreational experiences,” said Stephanie. “You are watching a story, and feel empathy for the characters physically right in front of you, which is much more powerful than watching a movie or reading a book.” Her favorite Hangar production so far was last summer’s Pride and Prejudice. “Kate Hamill’s adaptation was interesting because I knew the story,” she said. “It was fresh and funny, while still celebrating a revolutionary kind of woman.” Armed with an Integrated Marketing Communications degree from Ithaca
College, Stephanie started working as the Hangar’s development coordinator the day after she graduated in May 2017. “I was excited to start doing and learning,” she said. She brings many assets to the job, including a love of crafting the perfect message and a zest for event management, which allows her to combine a type-A love of lists with creativity, in order to deliver a memorable experience. “Working with the Hangar Theatre has really helped me grow,” she said. “It was a challenge to dive right in, and I had to figure out how to ask questions and solve problems.” She credits Leadership Tompkins, a local professional and leadership development program, and the Hangar’s Development Committee with helping her growth in confidence: “Meeting other like-minded people dedicated to what they do, from a wide range of professions but with
Stephanie sees the Hangar’s role in the community as inclusive and wide-reaching, “We want to share the theatre experience with everyone, from 4th-graders to underserved families to young professionals.” She says the Hangar’s educational programs are “incredible.” “I didn’t know that IC students were part of the Lab Company, and the Drama League Directing Fellows program is truly unique.” The people she’s met have come to mean a lot to her: “I love meeting our Board members and donors, and learning about their jobs, interests, and passions. People really do care about the theatre, and specifically, what the Hangar is and what it does.” What has surprised her most about working at the Hangar? “How collaborative it is!” she said. “Everyone has an equal voice and is treated that way, and given our small staff, we really do rely upon one another. I feel like I’m making a difference here.” Her colleagues heartily agree—every day Stephanie helps the Hangar thrive and grow, and we’re glad she’s with us. Join her at our Fall fundraiser, Bet Your Bottom Dollar, on October 19.

HUMMEL TEACHING ARTIST
Ithaca native Priscilla Hummel, choreographer of the Next Generation School of Theatre’s summer musicals since 2017, brings considerable talents to the Hangar’s education program. Growing up in this area, did you connect with the local arts scene and the Hangar? I love the Ithaca arts scene now, and I loved it then—what a privilege to grow up in such a thriving community! I was passionate about dance most of my childhood. I began my formal training at age six at the Ithaca Academy of Dance, and then transitioned to the Armstrong School of Dance and the Ballet Guild of Ithaca. When my brother was in the Hangar Theatre’s school outreach production of School House Rock, Live!, I connected with then-artistic director Kevin Moriarty and the professional actors in the cast, who helped inspire me to pursue theatre professionally. What professional experiences were you eager to bring back to our community? After earning an MFA at Regent University, in 2007 I moved to Chicago, where I thrived in the steady, diverse roles I found in the arts. My most
valuable experiences were with Provision Theater, where I developed and ran the education program from 2009-2016. There I saw firsthand how theatre can bring a community together and motivate people to make important and informed shifts in their lives. Though Ithaca has a long performing arts legacy, I was excited to return and apply my experiences toward further development of the musical theatre scene, both within existing arts organizations as well as with a new not-for-profit I have founded, Walking on Water Productions (WoW). WoW’s mission is to produce works that stimulate the senses, intrigue the mind, woo the heart, and anchor the soul. Since our launch, we have produced Godspell and The Fantasticks. We are currently workshopping a new musical, Katrina, which will have its world premiere at the Kitchen Theatre, August 2-11. For more information, visit walkingonwaterproductions.org or find us on Facebook!
What have been your experiences with the Hangar’s Next Generation program? In 2017, I worked on my first production as choreographer with the Hangar in Alice in Wonderland Jr. It was a joy to develop new relationships with young talented performers, while working alongside local professional and preprofessional artists. In the 2018 production of Seussical Jr., I was impressed by the way several cast members developed multidimensional characters who moved confidently and purposefully within an imaginary world that they helped create and cultivate. By tapping into their creative imaginations and unique experiences, they told a story that touched on deeper levels of the human experience—more so than I’d seen working on two previous productions of the show. Anything else you’d like to share? Mary Poppins has been a favorite story of mine since I was young, from the original movie up to the 2018 remake. I can’t wait to work on Mary Poppins Jr. with the Next Gen program this summer. Magic, wonder, rewarding hard work, and delightful discoveries await us!

PROPS: OUR VITAL
VOLUNTEERS Sandy & Mike Simkin
Who are the red-vested folks who scanned your ticket and handed you this program guide? They’re members of a vital volunteer group called PROPS, passionate performing arts lovers dedicated to the Hangar Theatre. PROPs began in 1978, three years after the Hangar Theatre opened. Former Hangar Board President Laurel Southard joined PROPS in 1983, and remembers times when volunteers pitched in to mount a show. “In 1985 I worked on the Amadeus jacket, which had 35,000 sequins,” said Southard, who also recalls applying gold leaf to sets, feeding casts on Saturdays between the matinee and evening shows, and selling tickets at the Farmers Market. As the Hangar Theatre Company grew, many of these tasks became the work of theatre professionals. But the need for a warm, welcoming cohort
of volunteers remains. Today PROPS members usher and assist with patron needs and other duties at Mainstage and KIDDSTUFF performances. Many of the PROPS members you’ll see this season have been volunteering at the Hangar for years. For some, it’s a family affair. Sandy and Mike Simkin are part of three generations who’ve contributed to the Hangar’s success. “It’s been a wonderful experience to see all the shows,” says Sandy, “the Hangar does an amazing job.” Sandy and Mike were joined in ushering by their daughter Heather when her daughter, Jewell Payne, appeared in the Hanger’s 2009 production of Once on This Island (2009) and The Piano Lesson (2010). Jewell and younger sister Torriana are veterans of the Hangar’s Next Generation School of Theatre; Torriana will be in this summer’s Mary Poppins, Jr. An aspiring actress, Jewell has been the

Hangar’s box office manager, is now the Kitchen Theatre house manager, and is heading off to a BFA program in musical theatre at Viterbo University next fall. Theresa and Mike Stanley are also long-time members of PROPS. Theresa believes that greeting patrons creates community bonds: “there’s a real benefit to making a personal connection with someone,” she said. “It adds a special dimension to community.” Mike’s love of theatre comes from his being a practicing magician; he was the magic consultant for last year’s Chicago and Xanadu at the Hangar. Their daughter, Karen Stanley, is teaching puppetry, and Mike, stage magic, at this summer’s Next Gen School. Ushering, the most visible of PROPS opportunities, allows you to see all Mainstage and KIDDSTUFF shows. But volunteers can help the Hangar in other ways, from assisting in staffing for special events, facilities maintenance, or distribution of marketing materials. Interested in joining PROPS?

AN INTRODUCTION TO: OR, WHAT SHE WILL By M.J. McKinven
You may not have heard of the first play of our summer season—Or, What She Will— but you’re in for a treat. It’s a high-spirited farce featuring a real-life heroine, Aphra Behn (1640-1689), considered to be the first professional female playwright. Behn was a playwright, poet, novelist
and occasional spy in the Restoration era. Playwright Liz Duffy Adams has deftly woven biographical details into a frothy plot that brings King Charles II, doubleagent William Scott, actress Nell Gwynne, patroness Lady Davenant and her saucy servant Maria together
with Aphra for one fast, farce-paced night. The reallife Behn would ultimately write 19 plays (her most well-known, The Rover, was staged by Ithaca College in 2017). Rediscovered in the 1970s, Behn is now seen as a pioneer in modern feminist thought. Virginia Woolf
wrote, in A Room of One’s Own, “All women together ought to let flowers fall upon the grave of Aphra Behn… for it was she who earned them the right to speak their minds.” While Or, What She Will may take comic liberty with the facts, it’s a love letter to a liberated spirit, a woman of her time and now, ours.
THREE ROLES, ONE ACTOR: CHALLENGE ACCEPTED! I am thrilled to be returning to the Hangar for a third season, and my third consecutive opportunity to tackle multiple roles in one play. I’ve always joked I grew up studying acting from the “Gary Oldman Wig and Accent School of Acting,” but the challenge of physically transforming into unrecognizable characters has always been central to why I chose to be an actor. I start preparing for multiple roles through research, and more research, which technology has made much more accessible. In preparation for Or, What She Will, I can find hundreds of images of Charles II in an instant via Google. I can
find any accent under the sun online, from backwater Georgia to working-class British, which I used when playing Owen and Froggie, respectively, in 2017’s The Foreigner. I can also virtually visit almost any environment my characters find themselves, to learn about the political, economic, and class landscapes that inform their choices. Once I collect all this information, the next step is to filter it through my imagination. In my process, truly bold character transformation takes life with physical shape. My wife works in apparel design and I credit her with introducing me to the concept of a
silhouette: an outer line can express so much with so little. With Mr. Collins, from last season’s Pride & Prejudice, it was his posture and a birdlike walk. Costumes are always the icing on the transformational cake. When playing multiple roles within the same show, however, costume changes can become really tricky. The quick change from Mr. Bennet to Mr. Collins at the end of Pride and Prejudice ended up being an actual “bit” that took place in front of the audience. As an actor, I want to work smarter rather than harder. It’s invaluable to discover the simplest form that inspires an
immediate transformation, a form then evolves into a walk, then a voice, and then, an emotional core. But the real fun begins with discovery and collaboration in rehearsal with my colleagues—the director, fellow actors, designers, and writers--the ultimate process that makes a character true. I like to think ALL acting is transformational. But when you play multiple roles, you get to use a whole different set of skills. Too often actors are cast very closely to how the world sees them, so to get to play such a variety of characters, in a single show, is like a gift. Challenge accepted!

INTO THE WOODS: A REVELATION FOR A GENERATION By Erica Steinhagen
There is a generation (mine) of theatre kids who as teenagers had a transformative experience when they saw Sondheim’s Into the Woods for the first time. Specifically, it was watching PBS’s “Great Performances” broadcast featuring the original Broadway cast: Bernadette Peters as the Witch, Joanna Gleason as the Baker’s Wife, Chip Zien as the Baker, and Philip Hoffman (with whom I appeared in Tim Pinckney’s Ever So Humble at the Hangar Theatre in 2011) as the Steward. We learned things that first time, and more when we viewed it again. We felt as if we had been trusted with
secrets. We knew, even more fervently, and perhaps more seriously, that this was what we wanted to do: tell stories, important ones. We sang the score over and over again, standing at the piano in our best friend’s living room, learning the complex rhythms and melodies of “Steps of the Palace.” We knew we wanted to play characters with flaws and wishes (“I wish!”) and heartbreak and loss and fears. First, because I understood her, I wanted to be Cinderella. But ultimately, the Baker’s Wife—with her endless strength, impatience, love, humor, and courage— was mine.
There are many times we have to let go of old dreams. We have to let go of wishes and accept that things don’t always turn out perfectly, like in a fairy tale. As an actor, sometimes you age out of dream roles, or an opportunity doesn’t present itself at the right time. Or you play a role when you’re too young, before you can truly appreciate or understand it. Sometimes your body seems to betray you and you end up physically different, changed. And then there are other times. Times where you are at the edge of a precipice, but the perfect moment reveals itself and you realize
it’s within your grasp. After a full year of devastating news, unbelievable physical challenges, emotional anguish, and fighting my way back, I am overwhelmed and humbled and grateful for to be in my current position. Michael Barakiva and I finally get to be in the same room together this summer. After some in-depth phone calls and conversations about our experiences as young theatre kids of a certain era, and after holding one another’s vision beside our own, here we are. Baker’s Wife, I see you. I know you. I am honored to tell your story. “But if life were only moments, then you’d never know you had one.” I WISH!
INTO THE WOODS: A TOUCHSTONE OF OUR YOUTH By Aundre Seals For many of us in a particular generation, Into the Woods is a touchstone of our youth. Many of us were introduced to it by PBS; for others, it was a live production at school. For me, it was much more personal; it was the first BIG musical I directed. A group of my friends and I were all seniors at SUNY Fredonia and we wanted to do something big, all on our own, before graduation.
Well - we certainly went big. We produced, directed, cast, designed, and presented it at the Struthers Library Theatre in Warren, PA. I remember the visceral response I had when I heard the Baker’s lyrics: “No more giants Waging war Can’t we just pursue our lives With our children and our wives Till that happier day arrives.”
The relevancy, the power, the commentary, the confusion, and most importantly—how closely those words reside in the opinion of my own heart. I’ll never forget sitting there and thinking: I’m going to play the Baker someday. And, well, here we are. I am fortunate to have found an artistic home where collaborations with Michael
Barakiva are plenty, fruitful, rewarding, and magical. I am fortunate to share the stage for the second time with my lovely friend, Erica, and third time with master of music, Daniel Lincoln. And I am most fortunate to have the opportunity to revisit Sondheim’s woods again, but this time on the Hangar stage. May all of your wishes come true, too.

AN INTERVIEW WITH GERRY MCINTYRE Director & Choreographer of Kinky Boots Broadway veteran Gerry McIntyre brings a unique skill set, amassed after a lifetime in the theatre, to the helm of this summer’s Kinky Boots. He’s a true triple threat, an experienced actor, director, and choreographer who finds each role informs the others. “I feel like I’m a better choreographer/director after I act—I have more insight,” says Gerry. “The well gets fuller, and then I get to direct/choreograph, and have more to draw upon.” Gerry’s long career, both on the stage and behind the scenes, features many productions, including the Broadway companies of Chicago, Once On This Island, Anything Goes and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (he also appeared in the movie of Joseph as Judah). Gerry describes Kinky Boots as a “subtle story about acceptance. If you want to change people’s minds, you have to have joy throughout the journey until whoa— you’re enlightened! The story we want to tell will be fun, but what’s important is the message that we’re all
the same.” Gerry thinks the Hangar Theatre’s intimate space is a perfect setting for sparking that realization. Born in Granada, West Indies, Gerry moved with his family to East Orange, NJ, when he was just four. He remembers watching afternoon movies while his mother was working, and thinking, “Oh my god, I don’t know what that is, but I have to do it for the rest of my life.” He started performing early in life, winning awards for public speaking in grammar school, and discovering the joy of making people laugh in his first high school musical, Hello Dolly. As a senior at Montclair State College, Gerry won the national Irene Ryan scholarship competition for his performance in Pippin. Graduating in 1984, he got his Equity card, but his first Broadway show lasted only two weeks. “So, be very specific about what you wish for,” he said, “I want to be on Broadway…for longer.” That wish came true. In 1990 he was a member of the original company of Once Upon this Island,
By MaryBeth Bunge Managing Director
and became its dance captain, jump-starting his career as a choreographer and director. In 1993 he appeared as Judah in Joseph and the…Dreamcoat, a role he reprised in the 1999 movie. A long run in Chicago on Broadway led to road company tours as Billy Flynn throughout Europe: “I played Billy in Lisbon for five weeks!” Since then he has worked at major theatres throughout the US, including the Connecticut Repertory Theatre, Ogunquit Playhouse, Berkshire Theatre Festival, and many others. For Gerry, theatre is a powerful agent of selfrealization. “I was once miserable, 300 pounds with braces. When I found this place that I could live and learn in, and saw that I could bring to other people the joy, the sadness, I found the power to be a stronger and
better man, and it saved my life.” He also believes in theatre’s power to create community. “I was an altar boy for 12 years, and it’s the same thing—people come and share something,” he said. “My favorite part in church is when we shake hands— we’re all the same. In the theatre, even if not everyone likes it, at least we shared something, and we can’t do that if we were elsewhere. I love that we’re all together.” His first impressions of Ithaca? “I had no idea what to expect, but I love it,” he says. “It’s artsy in a good way—the people, the food. I saw everyone was talking to each other at a happy hour— this is what it’s all about! People communicating in a community; I was surprised and delighted there is so much joy and care in the air.”

LITTLE WOMEN: A TIMELESS MODEL OF GROWING UP
Kate at the Hangar’s 2019 Spring Fundraiser, An Evening With Kate Hamill.
It is so moving to me to have Little Women come to the Hangar, the theater where my career began as a (very!) young actor in the KIDDSTUFF program. This is a play that has deep personal resonance for me; it is, fundamentally, a play about growing up. To have it come to the institution and area where I actually grew up (I’m a Lansing native and an Ithaca College graduate) is… almost inexpressibly meaningful. I am so grateful to everyone at the Hangar for giving me the opportunity to bring this almost-memory play to a place where I developed so many formative memories myself. I am deeply interested in reclaiming the classics; I want to create inclusive stories in which each of us
can see reflections of our experiences. That’s part of why I was so interested in adapting Little Women for the stage. I have a deep personal connection to Little Women. My mother first handed me the novel to read when I was hitting puberty: that time, unfortunately, when societal expectations for women often start colliding with their true self-expression. She felt that Little Women offered a timeless model of how to keep following your own conscience when society is pressuring you to conform. I have spoken to many people who have similar relationships with this novel; countless friends have told me the story of how Little Women was also given to them as a treasured rite of
By Kate Hamill
passage. When I started re-reading this quintessential American novel with an eye towards adaptation, I was particularly interested in the storylines of Jo and Laurie: two characters who don’t feel entirely comfortable within their given gender roles. Despite the challenges this presents—particularly during the Civil War, when the country was fraught with political tension and violence—Jo and Laurie find a way to accept themselves and follow their own paths (even when those paths don’t lead quite where they may have wished). This has particular resonance today, especially for young people caught between childhood and adulthood, who must navigate a world in which expectations are often murky.
While I was writing this play, a family member fell gravely ill. As is so often true, life bled onto the pages. And so Little Women also became, for me, a meditation on the unstoppable passage of time; on the sometimesstrained strength of families; and above all, the struggle of art to celebrate and preserve our loved ones. Life doesn’t always go exactly as we planned when we were children. We don’t always get to choose how the world receives us. But (as Beth reminds us) growing up is a privilege, and when we choose love and inclusivity, even during fraught times, beautiful new paths can open; for ourselves, and for society.
Kate Hamill is an award-winning NYC-based actor/playwright who was named 2017’s Playwright of the Year by the Wall Street Journal. Her recent plays include Sense and Sensibility, Vanity Fair, and Pride and Prejudice. She is currently working on adaptations of The Odyssey and The Scarlet Letter.

Little Women was commissioned and originally produced by The Jungle Theater, Minneapolis, MN (Sarah Rasmussen, Artistic Director). New York City Premiere at Primary Stages (Andrew Leynse, Artistic Director; Shane D. Hudson, Executive Director; Casey Childs, Founder), May 2019. Developed at the Colorado New Play Festival, Steamboat Springs, June 2018.
BIG PLAY FESTIVAL! The ampitheatre at Ephesus, built in third-century BCE, had the capacity to seat 24,000. In spite of the packed house, it’s hard to imagine anyone past the first few thousand audience members could really see what was going on. But I bet they could hear it. In Renaissance England, you didn’t go to see a play. You went to hear one. The spoken word is the fundamental building block of our theatrical tradition. It’s what I love about going to the theatre, and the main reason the Hangar has decided to present our Big Play Festival!: three lightlystaged readings offering different reflections of the American family. The process by which we arrived at this decision, like many such processes, was a winding one. It started two years ago, when I directed a reading of Byron’s Manfred for Red Bull Theatre in New York City. Like many romantic dramas of the 19th century, Manfred was never meant to be produced, just read, like a poem. And, like many cult dramas, it has inspired a devoted
following, all of whom were in attendance that night, having paid what I consider a shocking amount of money (much more than a ticket to the Hangar!). Listening to that reading, allowing my imagination to supply the locations and clothes and special effects, and being part of an audience all doing the same, was one of my most recent transcendent theatre experiences. The lightly-staged reading might be familiar to Ithaca audience members because of the “On the Verge” reading series at Ithaca College. Last year, I attended the reading of Arthur Miller’s All My Sons directed by Claire Gleitman, featuring Greg Bostwick and Kathleen Mulligan (Gleitman and Mulligan serve as the faculty sponsors). Two and a half hours later, weeping from the majesty of the event that had unfolded before me, I pulled myself out of my chair. The only thing that pierced that grand feeling of catharsis was a keen sense of how much I wanted to present masterpieces like this at the Hangar. But these great plays, with their impressive cast sizes and running times,

are challenging for even the largest regional theatres to produce.
Festival!, would grant access to all three readings. Three for the price of one!
That’s when I had an AHA! moment. By presenting these plays as lightly staged readings, we could give our audiences the kind of transcendent experiences I had listening to All My Sons and Manfred. It would also be an opportunity to collaborate with more of the Ithaca-area actors whose work has impressed me so deeply during my time here. Finally, by using a festival model, we would be able to give the Hangar audiences an irresistible deal: a subscription to the Hangar’s summer 2019 season, or a single ticket to the Big Play
But mostly, it allows us to share with you theatre in its most primal, most essential form. The event of the word being spoken on the stage in real time, in real space, is what defines the theatrical experience for me. It’s what grants theatre its vitality, and what casts the spell that connects all of the audience not just to the play, but to each other. This is what we wanted to bring to our audiences with the Big Play Festival! We are thrilled to share these masterpieces with you, our audiences. We hope you like what you hear.

Kathleen “Kathy” Cole passed away on March 21, 2019. Kathy served as Campaign Counsel to the Hangar for All Seasons Campaign, and was instrumental in developing the fully renovated year-round facility which opened in 2010. Her wisdom, vision and insights galvanized the Hangar's leadership to raise $4.6 million to provide a home for the Hangar Theatre Company and its Next Generation School of Theatre, co-productions with DSP Shows, and a vital rental option for community gatherings. We are forever grateful for the hope, commitment and warmth she brought to the campaign and beyond.

Until then, Bayonne takes it one graceful step at a time. And, from here, the story just keeps getting better. Come for a visit and tell us your story. Call
