Pier One Theatre on the Spit opens its summer season on Friday, May 23 with, “Let Glow” — a new offering from Inupiaq inter-disciplinary artist Allison Warden that focuses on the process men go through to find love. The show runs through May 25. “Let Glow” depicts the process of preparing to be loved and truly loving the self.
The interactive play transforms the audience into a herd of caribou that migrate into an Alaska Native Village community hall. There, they learn about love, friendly competition and connection between communities. They “glow” at the end, because they are caribou who care and participate.
Second on the schedule is “Red,” by author John Logan. The piece won six Tony awards on Broadway in 2010, including best play and best direction. Marc Oliver and Johnny Hamilton are the two actors in the story about a painter and his assistant. The play will be performed two weekends: May 30, 31, June 1 and then again June 5, 6 and 7.
“The Man From Earth,” a sci-fi classic directed by Peter Sheppard, is Pier One’s third presentation. It also runs for two weekends, and deals with the question, “What if a Paleolithic man just didn’t die? What if he just lived on and on and on?”
The show is slated for June 13-15 and 19-22.
Homer pianist Johnny Bushell takes the stage next at Pier One. Johnny B’s interactive, multi-media performances runs June 17 and 24.
Youth Theatre Skills Camp, a culmination of a three-week theater skills camp, follows. The young thespian hopefuls take the stage June 27 and 28.
All shows begin at 7:30 at the Pier One Theatre on the Homer Spit. Tickets are $14 maximum, with discounts available for members, seniors and children.
