New Repertory Theatre announces the encore staging of THREE VIEWINGS by Jeffrey Hatcher at Lane-Comley Studio 210, Boston University Theatre Complex, May 18 through June 3, 2012.
Nominated for 2012 I.R.N.E. Awards (Independent Reviewers of New England) both for Best Play and Best Actress (Adrianne Krstansky), The Boston Globe Wrote of THREE VIEWINGS: “Under the direction of Jim Petosa, the performances by these exemplary actors cut deep,” of New Rep’s 2011 production in the Black Box Theater at the Arsenal Center for the Arts in Watertown.
“Expanding THREE VIEWINGS to the Lane-Comley Studio 210 Theatre is an exciting opportunity for New Rep,” says Managing Director, Harriet Sheets. “Audience enthusiasm and critical response led us to consider ways of extending.”
“This is the first of many collaborative opportunities between New Rep and BCAP,” Petosa says. “As Artistic Director for both organizations, and director for THREE VIEWINGS, this is a perfect way to explore the synergy between the two institutions. Creating partnerships that insure enhanced viability of our artistic work is common to both our missions and goals. It explores how our home at the Arsenal Center for the Arts in Watertown can also serve as an incubator extending the lives and expand the reaches of successful productions.”
Directed by Jim Petosa, the THREE VIEWINGS reprised cast features Joel Colodner (Emil), Adrianne Krstansky (Virginia), and Christine Power (Mac).

In THREE VIEWINGS, award-winning playwright Jeffrey Hatcher explores love, money, and loss in a trio of mordantly witty narratives. An infatuated man goes to extraordinary lengths in order to win a woman’s heart; a jewelry thief with a hidden secret reclaims a family heirloom; and a widow confronts the repercussions of her late husband’s wheeling and dealing. Hatcher weaves these three poignant tales into an evening of remarkable storytelling sure to entice and captivate you.
