1980 (Or Why I'm Voting For John Anderson) Livestream Teaser
Time & Location
About the event
A livestream (Facebook Live and YouTube) event hosted by Storefront Artistic Director Ronan Marra. 1980 cast members Chelsea Anderson, Bridget Haight, Jamaal McCray and Carly Wagers will read the first act of the play as a preview for our upcoming full production, and we will share some of the pre-production work of our design team. The productions new run dates and other information about Storefront will be announced during the broadcast.
Admission is free, but donations are welcome before and during the stream. All proceeds will go towards support the production.
A comedy about class, race and learning to believe that anything is possible, before you learn that it actually isn't. For a sliver of a shining moment in the fall of 1980, it looked as though a little known congressman from Illinois, John Anderson, might actually have a chance to be a contender for President of the United States. At least that's what the campaign staff of John Anderson For President believes. In a bare bones campaign office in Boston, Massachusetts, four very different (and slightly lost) people search for answers and hope that their long shot candidate will change their country and their lives.
