Legendary entertainers Kenan and Kel made theatrical history when they broke down the fourth wall, and then, to the consternation of the set designer, broke down the second and third walls as well. Experience the magic of the stage with today's Groupon: for $10, you get one ticket to see new drama The New Testament at Studio Roanoke, located on Campbell Ave (up to a $20 value). The New Testament runs February 9–20; shows are Wednesday–Saturday at 8 pm., with 2 p.m. matinees on Saturday and Sunday.
In a black-box theater that houses up to 60 theatergoers, Studio Roanoake stages challenging and innovative works that ask audiences to reconsider traditional theatrical conventions. Written and directed by Studio Roanoke founding board member and current artistic director Kenley Smith, The New Testament charts a young researcher's pursuit of the truth behind the mysterious, grainy Internet videos of a charismatic preacher. Preceded by Devil Sedan, which earned a rave review from local journalist Dan Smith, The New Testament will continue the thrilling Bobby Pence saga, promising to nail audience members to their seats no matter how much their disobedient Rottweilers insist otherwise.
Though Studio Roanoke sometimes features discounted prices, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
While the show The New Testament has yet to receive any reviews, the Roanoke Times featured Studio Roanoke:
- (Writer Sandy) Dietrick said Studio Roanoke compares favorably with many theaters she has seen in New York, where she lives. ‘I love this little space,’ she said after the show. ‘They're got office space and rehearsal space and dressing room space. ... It's a dream.’ – Kevin Kitterage
