Capital Repertory Theater 2022-2023 season announced – The Daily Gazette
ALBANY — Capital Repertory Theater’s 2022-23 season will open with a familiar character in a not-so-familiar way with ‘Dracula: A Comedy of Terrors,’ co-written by one of REP’s associate artists, Gordon Greenberg .
The full season was announced Tuesday by Proctors Collaborative on the REP’s Facebook page.
This is the second full year of programming at REP’s new facility at 251 North Pearl St. in Albany.
“With the announcement of our 22-23 season, I feel like we’re really back, with a selection of plays and musicals that span 500 years of great theatre,” said Maggie Mancinelli- Cahill, artistic director producer of the REP.
“It’s exhilarating to be able to offer our audience a full season with depth and variety – including Shakespeare’s audacious tale of identity confusions, a hilarious new adaptation of a classic thriller, a provocative world premiere by a rising woman playwright and a joyous celebration of classic country music.
Each subscription to theREP includes a crossover show at Proctors in Schenectady. This year that show is the Broadway classic “Hairspray” plus other extras.
