Don’t miss the world premiere adaptation of Julie Schumacher’s scathingly funny, best-selling novel Dear Committee Members. Comprised entirely of hysterically hostile letters of recommendation from the beleaguered and cantankerous Professor Jason T. Fitger, this “flawlessly written highwire act of a book” bursts onto the stage for the very first time. Wendy Wilcox directs David Berkson in this one-man show. From the novel hailed by Kirkus Reviews as “acid satire of the academic doldrums,” this new adaptation is sure to delight both newcomers and the book’s die-hard fans. Join us January, 22, opening night, for a talkback and book signing with the novel’s author Julie Schumacher! As Maureen Corrigan says, “you may well find yourself laughing so hard it hurts.”
