And Away We Go

by
Terrence McNally

Times change, but life in theatre remains the same: chaotic, sometimes brutal, but often euphoric, too. And Away We Go jumps through time from backstage in ancient Athens to a rehearsal at the Globe, from Versailles' Royal Theatre to the first reading of a new play by Chekhov — with an unlikely stop in Coral Gables and the American premiere of Waiting for Godot along the way.

“Terrence McNally plants a big wet kiss on his lifelong love — the theatre... [A] frolicsome valentine to the glorious, maddening, demanding world of footlights, spotlights and ghost lights.”

    —The New York Times

“Theater nerds, rejoice! AND AWAY WE GO delivers the goods. It's not hard to imagine the play being studied alongside Tom Stoppard's Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead and Luigi Pirandello's Six Characters in Search of an Author.”

—TheaterMania.com

“The Tony-winning playwright loosely knits together a series of sketches for a play that’s lovingly made… It’s set at theaters around the world and at various points in history, from ancient Athens to present-day America, as they face challenges ranging from censorship to revolution. A prime opportunity for [an] ensemble to show their range in under two hours, with nary a costume change.”

—Time Out (New York)
