BUFFALO HEIGHTS stampedes into spring with its first rehearsal

Just got back from our first rehearsal of TIC's new comedy, Buffalo Heights, and I have that same feeling I used to get right before going back to school as a kid: excited to see my friends again, psyched to learn new stuff, all while gleefully clutching my shiny new school supplies and books.

Damn, that's one fine-looking herd of Buffalonians!
Getting back into the rehearsal room with this talented group of actors (see their pretty faces, above), playwright Adam and SM Shelby felt just like walking into home room and seeing your favorite friends and catching up. And we had our thick binders filled with a fresh-off-the-printer script to read (our new text books, if you will!).

The first read through took just over 90 minutes, but flew by.  There were lots of fun surprises in the revised script: two characters' names changed (an earlier version had too many characters with J names), Joe Mullen grew a beard since last we met (looking good, Joe!), not to mention a whole host of new character and plot developments.  I can't wait to really dig in and explore the whole new piece in the coming month of rehearsals. I think May will be here before we even know it -- so get your tickets now!

Buffalo Heights by Adam Harrell runs for 8 shows, May 7-10 and 14-17, 2014 at 8 pm at the Bridge Theater @ Shetler Studios (244 West 54th Street, 12th floor, NYC).
