The Ensemble Theatre of Chattanooga will attempt to set a Guinness Book record for the longest play by performing The Bald Soprano for 30 straight hours, starting Oct. 25 at 7:30 PM, according to the TimesFreePress.com.
Directed by John Thomas Cecil, the six-person cast includes Casey Keelen, Zach DeSutter, Christy Gallo, Megan Hollenbeck, Sanford Knox Jr. and Jeremy Wilkins.
Prior to the record-breaking attempt, The Bald Soprano will also bepresented Oct. 18-20.
Eugene Ionesco's absurdist comedy, which was written when he was learning the English language, was first performed in 1950.
If the cast completes the 30-hour performance, they would break the previous record of 23 hours, 33 minutes, 54 seconds set by the 27 O'Clock Players in Belmar, NJ, in 2010.
You're invited to spend an evening filled with personal tales of difficult choices, bad breaks, worse men and some of the most glorious songs ever written. It's an intimate evening, up close with a legend.
So pull up a chair and order up a drink. Because she's got a life to sing. Tickets as low as $85!
