The talented troupe of barnstormers that comprises GreenRoom Productions enraptures audiences with an emotion-eliciting medley of sidesplitting improv, dulcet musicals, and comedic and dramatic plays. Set in the Bronx in 1964, John Patrick Shanley’s Doubt—the recipient of both the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize for Best Play in 2005—explores the delicate complexities of moral conviction in its incendiary tale of a Catholic priest’s alleged transgressions with a male student. The show runs for approximately two hours, and general-admission seating ensures tardy patrons won’t derail impassioned monologues by crowd surfing over seated audience members.
Postshow, spectators can share their reactions and hastily written sequels as they nosh on comestibles from an on-site concessions counter. Some thematic material may be inappropriate for spectators under the age of 13.
