BOCA RATON – The Caldwell Theatre will not be a vacant building this summer.
Caldwell will present “Stuff” from July 6 – 31 –Wednesdays through Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Wednesdays and Sundays at 2 p.m.
Born into a gilded world of opulence and breeding, the Collyer Brothers have it all. What they don’t realize is that their coddled world of privilege has left them completely unable to cope with the realities of the 20th century.
With great humor, insight and pathos, South Florida favorite Michael McKeever charts the comically twisted decline of New York’s most notorious hermits, from the height of their fortune in 1929 to their garbage laden deaths two decades later. With only each other to consol, support, love and loath, the Brothers Collyer shut themselves away from the disappointments of the ever-changing world outside, only to find their greatest horrors lie within the walls of their own home.
Also playing this summer is “Six Years,” from Aug. 10 to Sept. 4 – Wednesdays through Saturdays at 8 p.m., Wednesday and Sunday at 2 p.m.
Phil Granger returns home from the war two years later than expected. His wife, Meredith, asks few questions and comforts him. Off goes the quintessential “Greatest Generation” couple, embarking on the American Dream.
Sharr White’s fascinating tale follows this couple over the course of five separate scenes, each set six years apart, charting their journey through a “Levittown like” real estate development, financial success, “Mad Men like” early 60’s uncertainties, and finally “Vietnam era” complications now as the parents of an enlisted soldier.
‘Six Years” tells the story of America, a riveting homegrown drama reminiscent of the classic American playwrights, Arthur Miller and Eugene O’Neil.
Tickets are $38 to $50; full time students admitted for $10 with ID. The Caldwell Theatre is located at 7901 North Federal Highway, Boca Raton. Call 561-241-7432.
