Larry Rinkel's Play: Invitation to all New Yorkers

Post by karlhenning » Mon Feb 27, 2017 6:29 pm

Larry asked me to extend this invitation here on CMG:

Haven't been frequenting these parts of late, but for everyone in the New York area, I would like to extend an invitation to my new play that will premiere at Manhattan Repertory Theatre (W. 45th St.) on March 7 and 12.

We are now deep in rehearsals and response from cast and crew has been highly gratifying. My playwright friend Yaakov Bressler, who also designed my logo, has written, “Aside from being an intellectually stimulating piece with complex characters, A KREUTZER SONATA is a relevant work questioning how all people and specifically Jews balance their beliefs with participating in the modern world.” And my director Christopher Erlendson writes, “We don't have many full-length plays with these kinds of characters and this kind of spiritual meaning in NYC."

Last, my lead actor has said the following on his Facebook page: “On March 7th and 12th I'm starring in this lovely play at the Manhattan Repertory Theatre! It's been a wonderful experience in character, religion, and creating new works. I'd love to see some familiar faces come out to support me and Long Island playwright Larry Rinkel. Tickets available at http://manhattanrep.com/a-kreutzer-sonata

I assure you I have not paid a dime to any of these fine folk for their reviews! But this has been a very personal play for me and I think it perhaps my best to date. And so I hope anyone on the forum who's interested in the problems of maintaining a religious life while living in the contemporary world can come and enjoy the play.

Congratulations, Larry (a former and valued member here for those who don't know). Sorry I cannot make it. NYC is not just down the block for me, I still play organ on Sundays, and the weather we've been having has been more like a typical January. All the best for your premiere.

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.
-- Johann Sebastian Bach

John know what you mean about the weather-we came back from Florida this past Thursday and got snow the following morning-still the bigger problem is that they're predicting an even bigger amount for this Tues-really fouling up our plans for the Philadelphia Flower Show this coming week. Regards, Len :(
