POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. - Looking from the outside at this 5 story office building you may be surprised to find out a play is being produced inside. The Half Moon Theatre, a group from Poughkeepsie, have transformed the first floor of the Oakwood Commons office building on Route 9 in Poughkeepsie, into a theatre.
“This is our first day rehearsing” said Half Moon Theatre Director, Kristy Grimes. “It’s been a lot of work.”
The group is performing a play called 'Love/Sick' that’s written by John Cariani, who you may recognize from numerous shows on Broadway, as well as television shows like Law and Order, and CBS’s Numbers.
“When you grow up and get older you learn that things don’t last and you have to work hard to maintain everything in your life” said writer John Cariani. “This play is a comedy but also about people who are learning about maintaining their relationships.”
The performance features 10 vignettes for the expected 80 seat audience, that are about love and relationships, mixed in with comedy.
“It’s a comic and bittersweet switch that happens, so it’s about people realizing the plan that they made for their lives is not actually what’s happening now” said the play’s director, Christopher Edwards.
The group says they will host 13 performances out of the office building that start November 1st to the 17th.
