ALL ABOUT EVE

As it did in 2020, Carpenter Square Theatre will produce more Old Time Radio shows in its series titled “CST LiveOnline!” At 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, February 4-5, the theatre, in cooperation with RK-1 Studios, will present the radio play of “All About Eve.” Director Rhonda Clark has gathered a cast of Carpenter Square regulars, as well as, newcomers. The cast includes Christine Lanning, Crystal Barby, Terry Veal, Joe DiBello, Lilli Bassett, Craig Musser, Laurie Blankenship, Nora Sea, and C.W. Bardsher. Bardsher will also produce live sound effects during the shows.

Carpenter Square broadcasts their radio-with-video shows live from RK-1 Studios, located near Scissortail Park in downtown Oklahoma City. The shows can be viewed on the Carpenter Square Theatre YouTube channel. Viewing is free, but the theater certainly appreciates donations, as well as donations for RK-1 Studios who are providing their services for free.

“All About Eve” was a six-time Academy Award-winning film in 1950 with a mega-watt cast of Bette Davis, Anne Baxter, George Sanders, Gary Merrill, Celeste Holm, and Thelma Ritter. A young Marilyn Monroe even made a memorable appearance. In 1951, the radio adaptation first aired with many of the original film cast reprising their roles. The story follows Margo Channing, an aging Broadway star. The title role of Eve is a seemingly demure, but secretly ruthless, ingénue who insinuates herself into the lives of the star and her circle of friends. Eve claims to be Margo’s number one fan, but may put Margo’s career and love life in jeopardy.

Carpenter Square’s “CST LiveOnline!” aired for seven months in 2020 while the theater itself was closed during the COVID-19 shutdown. The theater is currently closed due to construction delays at its new venue, caused in part by the pandemic. To tune in to the latest radio broadcast, visit the theater’s website at carpentersquare.com. On the home page, look for the purple box on the right and click on the “All About Eve” link. This takes viewers directly to Carpenter Square Theatre’s YouTube channel. Also, folks may visit YouTube, search for Carpenter Square Theatre, and subscribe to the theater’s channel, which is free. Past radio shows and other CST videos are posted there for the public’s enjoyment. If someone must miss the live-stream performances, an archive video is always posted on the theater’s YouTube channel within a few days after the live event, so the public can tune in at their convenience.

Carpenter Square Theatre is supported in part by the Oklahoma Arts Council, National Endowment for the Arts, Kirkpatrick Family Fund, Inasmuch Foundation, and Allied Arts.

Dates to be announced
PICASSO AT THE LAPIN AGILE
a comedy by Steve Martin

Winner! 1996 Outer Critics Circle Award, Best Off Broadway Play

This long running Off Broadway absurdist comedy places Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso in a Parisian cafe in 1904, just before the renowned scientist transformed physics with his theory of relativity and the celebrated painter set the art world afire with cubism. In his first comedy for the stage, the popular actor and screenwriter plays fast and loose with fact, fame, and fortune as these two geniuses muse (and argue) about the century’s achievements and prospects, as well as other fanciful topics, with infectious dizziness. Bystanders, including Picasso’s agent, the bartender and his mistress, Picasso’s date, an elderly philosopher, and an idiotic inventor introduce additional flourishes of humor. The final surprise patron to join the merriment at the Lapin Agile is a charismatic dark-haired visitor in blue suede shoes time warped in from the 1950s.

(CST first produced “Picasso” in 2000 in Season 16. Audiences loved its quirky humor. There is a 2017 revised version that we will be presenting.)
