Now that the run is over, I'd be interested in discussing the effect of the age of the cast on the story. I did a little research and the Off Broadway run had a cast in their late 20's-early 30's, rather than 50's. We thought that a younger Annie & Elliot would have had less complex inferred lives: young people still finding out who they are, rather than somewhat neurotic mature people who've never quite figured out how to be comfortable in their skin, in contrast to Don.

The picture of an early 20's Annie giving a speech at a new job standing on a table is quite different than a mature woman doing it. The actor who played Elliot O-B was 28. His obsessive behavior at that age would be more cute than creepy.

I'm definitely not saying I think the older casting was bad, just that it's interesting to contemplate the difference. Romeo & Juliet cast in their 50's might make a great interpretation, but boy would it be different. It's always been something of a problem with casting those young Shakespeare characters as well as Hamlet. Hamlet is often played by men twice the character's age.

Thoughts?

PS: Congratulations to Clay and the rest of the cast and crew. Well done!

Seeing all these complements is great!
The most gratifying thing in the world is to hear that people
like our work - it's why we do it.
We have the best audiences in the world and really work hard
to entertain you.

By the way, some tickets are still available for tonight and
a few for tomorrow too. Our last two shows!

Thanks,
Clay

I was thinking that too, if this is his style he must have swooned when Aaron Sorkin wanted him!

We saw the show Saturday, very enjoyable and professional. Well worth the money anywhere, never mind a short walk away. Was glad to support a local company.

I'd love to discuss the show here, don't want to give anything away though so maybe after it closes.

But fear not - starting this Wednesday, we have four performances left and some tickets are still available for each night. (However - Friday and Saturday typically sell out fast, so if you can make it on Wednesday or Thursday - that might be better!)

As many of you know, J CITY Theater finished their run of Regrets Only - almost one year ago. (It was our most successful show in our history.) Three days later, Hurricane Sandy hit. In the past year, we have faced many challenges - just like many of you. But on Friday, October 11th, we are back!

We are so very proud to announce that we open our 8th Season with Apartment 3A, by Jeff Daniels. We hope to see you there to help celebrate our come back story.

Full details below.

Jersey City, NJ (October 11, 2013) ? J CITY Theater, the professional theater company located in downtown Jersey City is proving that they?re ?Jersey strong? by staging their comeback production on October 11, 2013.? The show runs for three weeks with a scheduled closing of October 26th.
?
J CITY Theater will launch their eighth season by producing ?Apartment 3A,? written by actor and playwright Jeff Daniels, who is currently starring in HBO?s ?The Newsroom? written by Aaron Sorkin. The play is a sardonic romantic comedy that revolves around Annie Wilson, a public television employee who loses her faith in God, men and even PBS. As she goes through romantic trials, she loses her cool on camera during the annual pledge drive ? resulting in further chaos for herself and co-workers.? It's a laugh out loud comedy with some adult themes - so parents might want to consider this rated PG - 13.?

??? ?So much fun!? A great night of theater, full of twists and turns - a Miracle.?
??? ??? ??? ??? ??? ??? NYtheater .com

??? ?A Theatrical Jewel!?
??? ??? ??? ??? ??? Encore Michigan

Apartment 3A will star Sandy Cockrell, Stephen Hope, Randall Marquez and Clay Cockrell.? Our Stage Manager is Jack Vandewark and Tech Director is Nick Probst.? We are also thrilled to be working with Jacquelyn Bird as our choreographer.
