One-woman Show at Reach Performing Arts Center
July 23 @ 7:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 7:00 pm, repeating until Saturday, July 23, 2022
The Reach Performing Arts Center has announced the presentation of a one-woman show this July. “All She Cares About is the Yankees,” written by John Ford Noonan, will be on the Reach stage Friday, July 22, through Sunday, July 24.
The production is directed by Jonathan Libman, with choreography by Tatyana Kot, and featuring dolls of past Yankee players by Blue Hill’s Carolyn Greene Mor. It stars Amelia Huckel-Bauer as Maureen “Spanky” Oberfeld.
“All She Cares About is the Yankees” invites the audience to spend an exhilarating hour with “Spanky” Oberfeld during a sweltering summer evening in the mid-’80s. Spanky has been unable to leave her home for six weeks, imprisoning herself, yet determined to discover the reason for her fear and self imposed isolation. With the help of some friends on the outside, her passion for baseball and tons of grit and determination, she attempts time and time again to make it out the door, and back to life. Spanky knows deep down that the only way out is through, and if she can find a way, then we all can too!
With the production being born out of a New York City space, the Reach is only going to open up the front section of seating in the theater, creating a more intimate experience. Tickets are limited, but will all be by donation.
Audience members are required to sign up in advance at thereachpac.com so that they can track numbers for each evening.
