At Vanderbilt Carriage House Theater, Opens Friday, February 22


The Arena Players Repertory Theatre will present John Patrick Shanley’s "Danny and the Deep Blue Sea" at the Suffolk County Vanderbilt Museum’s Carriage House Theatre, opening at 8:00 p.m. on Friday, February 22, and running through March 17.


The storyj takes place in a rundown bar in the Bronx, where two of society’s rejects, Danny and Roberta, strike up a conversation over their beers. He is a brooding young man who relies more on violence than reason and she is a divorced guilt-ridden woman. When they come together, the result is a humorous, violent fairy tale about a frightening and fascinating relationship.


Shanley, a playwright and screenwriter, has won a Tony, an Obie, an Academy Award and the Pulitzer Prize. The New York Times said the play is “the equivalent of sitting at ringside watching a prize fight that concludes in a loving embrace.”


Performances are Friday and Saturday at 8:00 p.m., Sunday at 3:00 p.m. Tickets are $20 on Friday and Sunday, and $25 on Saturday. For reservations or more information, call 516-293-0674. Or visit www.ArenaPlayers.org.


The theatre is located at the Vanderbilt Museum, 180 Little Neck Road, Centerport, NY, and is fully accessible to the handicapped.


Arena Players Repertory Theatre is a non-profit company funded in part by the New York State Council on the Arts, the Suffolk County Office of Cultural Affairs, and individual contributions.
