Florida Repertory Theatre closes out its 25th anniversary season with Lobby Hero by Kenneth Lonergan.
The production runs in the ArtStage Studio Theatre now through May 21.
In Lobby Hero, the foyer of a Manhattan apartment building becomes more than a waiting area for four New Yorkers entangled in a murder investigation. As a young security guard with big ambitions clashes with his stern boss, an intense rookie cop and her unpredictable partner, the setting becomes a testing ground for what happens when personal and professional personas find themselves at odds.
“Playwright Kenneth Lonergan’s emotionally-nuanced play applies heart and wit to address polarizing topics of race, gender, class, and corruption,” said producing artistic director Greg Longenhagen. “It’s a well-balanced piece of theatre that examines the grey areas and multiple perspectives of moral and ethical dilemmas faced by the characters, while providing a healthy dose of comic relief along the way.”
The ensemble cast features New York-based actors Dante Alexander, Matt Monaco, Michael Saguto, and Dana Stern, each making their Florida Rep debuts.
Director Ron Lagomarsino (Broadway: Alfred Uhry’s The Last Night of Ballyhoo; Off-Broadway: original Driving Miss Daisy) is joined by an expert creative team including ensemble set designer Ray Recht (Maytag Virgin), costume designer Stephanie Hawks, lighting designer Joel Zishuk (Freud’s Last Session), sound designer Katie Lowe (Ring of Fire: The Music of Johnny Cash), and ensemble stage manager Janine Wochna (The Importance of Being Earnest).
Single ticket prices for Lobby Hero are $63 for regular performances. Curtain times are Tuesday – Saturday at 7 p.m., Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m. Florida Rep’s parking lot opens 2 hours before each performance and offers guests free parking across the street from the Arcade Theatre.
Tickets may be purchased online at www.floridarep.org or by calling the box office at 239-332-4488 or toll-free at 877-787-8053.
