We’re really excited for next month’s production of ENDURANCE, so we’d like to give you a peek with some photos!

Office gymnastics meets daring Antarctic exploration in the unlikely setting of a Hartford insurance office in this inventive and funny piece. Masters of movement, Split Knuckle Theatre, have performed their original, fascinating works internationally and will bring the World Premiere of Endurance to The Tank November 4th, 2010.

Trapped in Antarctica with no hope of rescue, the great British explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton kept 27 men alive for two years in the most inhospitable climate on earth. Ninety-five year later, in the worst economic meltdown since the Great Depression, Hartford insurance man Walter Spivey, struggling to save his employees’ jobs, relives Shackleton’s story. Can one of the greatest leaders in human history inspire him to conquer the corporate world? Two survival stories collide in this inventive and surprising adventure where desks become ship decks and four actors become dozens of characters in a story that spans 95 years and 8000 miles.

Steve Martin joined us for the Steam Powered Hour last month.

The Steam Powered Hour is a monthly variety show in New York City hosted by Matthew Diffee and featuring his favorite contemporary bluegrass musicians and the best of the alternative comedy scene. It’s the kind of show where you might see a comedian doing a little music and a musician doing a little comedy. Next Show is on 2/22/09 at 5:30pm with Fiddler Kenny Kosek and Comedian Brian Kiley.
