Long Beach’s International City Theatre announces five-play season for 2022

Long Beach’s International City Theatre announces five-play season for 2022

International City Theatre’s artistic director, caryn desai, on Friday, Aug. 27, announced four of the company’s five plays for the 2022 season.

Two of the plays, “The Legend of Georgia McBride” and “Lend Me A Tenor,” were slated for the 2020 season but were put on hold due to the pandemic shutdown. A fifth play, scheduled for Aug. 26-Sept. 11, 2022, will be announced later.

A song compilation, “Marry Me A Little,” will start the year Feb. 11-27. Seventeen of Steven Sondheim’s lesser-known songs are used to tell a tale of love and loneliness with two strangers living a floor apart.

Obie Award-winning playwright Lucas Hnath offers up the second play of the season, “A Doll’s House: Part 2.” A takeoff of the classic 1879 Henrick Ibsen play “A Doll’s House,” the Tony-nominated play stands on its own as a bitingly funny exploration of Ibsen’s Nora. It runs April 15 through May 1.

“The Legend of Georgia McBride” starts the summer June 10-26. A music-filled comedy about an Elvis impersonator who loses his bar gig to a drag show, it will be directed by ICT fan favorite Jamie Torcellini.

The classic farce “Lend Me A Tenor” will wait until Oct. 21, 2022, to take the ICT stage. It runs through Nov. 6, 2022.

“We need the arts, now more than ever as we move beyond COVID-19, to provide hope and healing for our community,” desai said in the release.

“We are back to doing what we are meant to do — tell stories that help us better understand our world and our shared humanity,” she added.

International City Theatre performs at the Beverly O’Neill Theatre, part of the Long Beach Performing Arts Center. 2022 season subscriptions and individual tickets are available at 562-436-4610 or
