For 11 performances only, the Davenport Theatre (354 West 45th Street) will play home to the New York premiere of Natalie Margolin’s new play, The Power of Punctuation, produced by Matthew Kagen, Julia Greer and Emma Miller. The show runs from July 15 to August 6.
Directed by Casey Griffin and featuring Elizabeth Gambal (Fran), Rebecca Frisch (Angie), and Natalie Margolin (Jenny), The Power of Punctuation is a play about friendship, sex and commas.
Jenny, Fran, and Angie are best friends. They love each other. They have their own rules…their own language…their own way of surviving. A large white board dominates their living room. A huge clock dictates their every move. Their system is strict and serious. It’s 4 am. If the rules are broken, does the love remain?
“In a generation where technology frays intimacy and perpetuates detachment, Natalie Margolin’s The Power of Punctuation explores the female friendship dynamic with both empathy and humor,” said Kagen, Greer and Miller in a recent press release. Though the lens of text message etiquette, Margolin celebrates that language, even poorly punctuated, still has the power to connect us or rip us apart.
The design team includes Matt Brogan (scenic), Lauren Levin (costumes), and Julia Weinberg (props).
The Power of Punctuation opens Friday, July 15 and plays Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 8:00PM through Saturday, August 6. Tickets are $20 ($15 for anyone under 30), and are available at www.powerofpunctuationplay.com.
