THE ROYALE by Marco Ramirez
A Tampa Bay Area Premiere
September 20 – October 15, 2017

WE THE PEOPLE…WILL FIGHT FOR OUR RIGHTFUL PLACE
Charismatic African-American boxer Jay “The Sport” Jackson has a burning desire to become the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world. But it’s 1905, and in the racially segregated world of boxing, his chances are as good as being knocked out. When a crooked boxing promoter hatches a plan for “the fight of the century,” “The Sport” just might land a place in the ring with the reigning white heavyweight champion. This stylized and stunning play about the life of an outsider in American culture explores one man’s struggle while reflecting a much broader one.

 

“…(a) breakthrough saga for a new generation.” – Los Angeles Times

“….captures both the beautiful frenzy of boxing and the volatile state of race relations in America.” – The Telegraph

MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING by William Shakespeare
A New American Stage Adaptation
November 8 – December 10, 2017

WE THE PEOPLE…ARE RIDICULOUS IN LOVE

As World War II is drawing to a close, Beatrice rails against the roles expected of women of her era. Benedick has just arrived home from the war and is not ready to be tied down. Who needs marriage?! The two face off in a hilarious battle of wits in this American Stage take on the Bard’s famous romantic comedy about the war between the sexes. Full of live music and dance and set against the backdrop of the bright sunshine of the Florida Keys, this exuberant, philosophical, and festive play reminds us that no one is immune when it comes to matters of the heart.

By | Tartuffe, Uncategorized | No Comments

4-part-series

Pinellas County is a destination for creativity. It can be seen on our stages, in our museums, in our art-galleries and studios, at our film festivals and arts shows. It can be heard in our conversations, at our poetry readings and literary events. Creative Pinellas supports all of this activity and energy.

Recently, Julie Garisto teamed up with American Stage to come out with a 4 part series on our theatre. She went behind the scenes of TARTUFFE, sat down with Producing Artistic Director Stephanie Gularte, and shared with readers what’s to come at American Stage and throughout the Tampa Bay area theatre scene.

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

With the closing of THE PITMEN PAINTERS, we are celebrating and looking back on our 2015-2016 SEASON OF AWAKENINGS. We want to thank you for coming along on this journey with us –

From Esther‘s turn of the century boarding house in New York City to Richard Hannay’s flat in 1930’s London.

A 1940’s Radio Broadcast to a 1970’s Pittsburgh cab station.

Present day Greenwich Village to back in time to Camelot.

And a 1980’s Drag Queen’s shabby digs to a group of 1930’s Coal Miners’ art class in Northern England.

Now, American Stage invites audiences to go on a search with our upcoming season: In Search of… America

Join us this season where each production will leave you asking yourself tough questions. Let’s all go in search together.
