Trinity Repertory Company Announces 2019-2020 Season
The Tony Award-winning Trinity Repertory Company, under the artistic leadership of The Arthur P. Solomon and Sally E. Lapides Artistic Director Curt Columbus, announced the company’s 56th season today. The season kicks off with the world premiere of The Prince of Providence, an adaptation by George Brant of the New York Times best-selling book by Mike Stanton about Providence’s legendary mayor Vincent A. “Buddy” Cianci.
The 2019-20 Season includes the six-play subscription series and the 42nd annual production of A Christmas Carol, which is consistently among the highest selling holiday theater productions in the country. This year’s production of A Christmas Carol will be directed by Kate Bergstrom, a graduate of the Brown/Trinity Rep MFA program in directing.
In addition, prior to the official start of the season in the fall, Trinity Rep and Rhode Island Latino Arts will co-produce the fourth year of the Teatro en El Verano bilingual Shakespeare program, which provides free performances in parks, libraries, and recreation centers throughout the Rhode Island community. This year’s production, Mucho Ruido y Pocas Nueces/Much Ado About Nothing, is adapted by Kufa Castro and directed by Tatyana-Marie Carlo. Dates and details for this year’s production will be announced at a later date. The production is sponsored by The Susan F. Gonsalves Charitable Fund at the Rhode Island Foundation.
Following the opening of The Prince of Providence, the season features work by theatrical legends Stephen Sondheim and August Wilson, Pulitzer Prize-winning Lynn Nottage, up-and-coming Latina playwright Tanya Saracho, and an adaptation of a Charles Dickens classic by Trinity Rep company member Brian McEleney. Throughout the season, these stories will look at the price of success and progress in a variety of different settings and situations.
