The Gap and The Glue: An Apprentice Original Work

“Under the pressure to perform, a greater power struggle emerges.”

LISTEN. OUT LOUD. Four actors face the challenges of censorship when the government issues a mandatory ban on theatrical performance. In the forty minutes before the house opens for a Shakespearean festival, they scramble to make the show go on despite the fact that crucial elements are disappearing. Personalities collide as they fight against the system to maintain hope and keep the theatre from collapsing in on itself.

This production features the 2018/19 apprentice cohort. Returning to the American Stage mainstage as actors are: Kaylie Horowitz (MAMMA MIA!), Dylan Renfrow (MAMMA MIA!), Donovan Whitney (BETWEEN RIVERSIDE AND CRAZY) and Rose Hahn (LONG DAY’S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT). Returning as a Stage Manager is Season Wong (asm for 2018/19 season).

“The American Stage apprentice program culminates each year in this original work that reflects the passionate and powerful voices of the next generation of theatre professionals. This year’s apprentices bring their uniquely talented and insightful perspectives to this fresh work about art, society and the future. I\’m very proud to feature the THE GAP AND THE GLUE on our mainstage as we conclude our LIFE. OUT LOUD. Season.”  — producing artistic director, Stephanie Gularte.
