Production Description

Casting "Florence," a new ensemble piece based on the life of Florence Lawrence, the first movie star. The show loosely follows her rise to fame, fall from stardom, and eventual suicide. Florence's story is woven into a larger narrative about contemporary fame, Hollywood, anonymity, and what it means to be "remembered" by the world. Director states: “This show will be daring and unexpected. It’s film noir meets ‘Thriller’ meets Youtube fame meets Kanye West. The show is going to be devised during the rehearsal process, so we're looking for performers who see themselves as creators, not just actors.”

Rehearsal and Production Dates & Locations

Rehearsals will be held evenings, Mon.-Thurs., beginning mid-September. Show premieres late November at the theatre in Austin, TX.

Compensation & Union Contract Details

Performers will receive a profit share of door sales. Note: Bottle Alley's last four shows all sold-out, so profits are expected.
