Two people in a karaoke bar, pondering the perils of modern romance, brooding over the weather, and singing their favorite songs. That's one-half of the hook of Ice Age, an original work from Rising Sun's resident playwright Michael Aguirre. The title serves as the second half of the hook: the play actually takes place in a world frozen over by the second ice age. Both a fable and a candid vivisection of adulthood, Ice Age explores modern relationships in surprising ways. Much like any conversation about the weather, the show is intended for mature audiences only.
Rising Sun Performance Company
Where some theater outfits have a mission, Rising Sun Performance Company has a manifesto. Amongst the many values it champions, the group declares the power of fostering talent, lauds a take-no-prisoners attitude, and reminds members that "no one is too good to sweep and mop the stage." That tongue-in-cheek touch perfectly captures the spirit of the Off-Off Broadway ensemble, which has received accolades for its youthful enthusiasm and camaraderie. Now celebrating "12 years of effervescence," the company's adherence to the ideals of ensemble theater, and smart selections of daring dramas and offbeat comedies, have made them the buttered toast of critics and audiences alike.
