Festival 56 kicks off fall season
PRINCETON — The Festival 56 fall season at the Grace Performing Arts Center in Princeton opens Nov. 9 with Mark Twain’s “The Diaries of Adam and Eve.” It will run through Nov. 17. “Almost, Maine” will follow from Nov. 23-Dec. 1 and the season will end with the holiday show, “A Tuna Christmas,” Dec. 7-22. Evening shows begin at 7:30 p.m. and matinees at 2 p.m.
Mark Twain’s “The Diaries of Adam and Eve,” adapted for the stage by David Birney, is based on Mark Twain’s ingenious and witty retelling of the dawn of human creation and the relationship issues of Adam and Eve. Mitch Conti (Adam) makes his Festival 56 debut with this production. A graduate of Illinois State University’s College of Fine Arts acting sequence, he has most recently been doing improv and acting in his native Chicago. Actor Georgia Mallory-Guy (Eve) has performed widely (the Milwaukee Repertory Theatre, the Pittsburgh Irish and Classical Theatre) and last year became a Festival 56 favorite when she starred in the festival’s production of “Proof.”
“Almost Maine” was written by John Cariani. With a four-person cast, it tells the story of how, on a cold and moonless winter night, the residents of the town of Almost find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways.
