If a young man makes a mistake early on in his political career, should he be held accountable for it twenty years later? Oscar Wilde tackles this question with his trademark wit and style in "An Ideal Husband." NorthEast Theatre Ensemble will be bringing Wilde’s delightful 1893 play to live in an immersive site-specific performance at the Ten Broeck Mansion in Albany from April 11-28. This environmental production will take place in various spaces through-out the mansion, so come prepared to move around and enjoy cocktails, a party at the Chiltern’s house, and tea with some formidable (even ruthless) women. The production is ADA accessible, but please notify us in advance so we can make sure you are properly accommodated. "Husband" will be directed by Siena College Producer of Creative Arts Dr. Krysta Dennis, voted the Best Director in the Capital Region in the (sadly departed) Alt newsweekly. The cast includes company members Janet Hurley Kimlicko, Tony Pallone, Suzanna Bornn, Shae Fitzgerald, Travis Fealy, Molly Waters, and affiliated artists Dennis Schebetta, Shawn Barnes, Catherine Seeley, Karen Christina Jones, Patrick Flood, Steve Maggio, James Wild, and Ren Kris.
Janet Hurley Kimlicko and Colleen Lovett will be switching off from night to night on the roles of Gertrude Chiltern and Mrs. Cheveley.
Costume Design is by Charlie Barnett, recipient of the 2018 “Best Costume Design” award in the BroadwayWorld Regional Awards (Berkshires).
