Shiny Things

By Heather Renken

Directed by Heather Renken

Shiny Things opens in August at Broom Street Theater

ADHD on the "wicked, wicked stage!" The sparkle and shine of vaudeville glimmers once more on the Broom Street Theater stage in Heather Renken's new serio-comic play, Shiny Things. Delight your senses with Dr. Backwards, Mae West, and even a trained seal amid song & dance and a few surprises Mr. Ziegfeld would envy (if only he'd lived to see this show). Shiny Things explores the twists and turns of living and coping with Attention Deficit Disorder. It opens August 8th 2008 and continues its engagement until September 14th.

Presenting only such talent as we know to be worthy of your patronage. Broom Street welcomes back veteran performers Odari McWhorter, Andrew Miller Rhoads, Teresa Anne Rode, Jan Levine Thal, and Erik Weinke, and is proud to present newcomers, Mariah Byrne, Jesse Fey, Melissa Halpin, Tanna Mayer, Jennifer Russ, Tyler Schott, and Lee Zeuner to the boards at 1119 Williamson Street.

Designed by eminent talents Ben Emerick in the firmament (lights), Brian Wild in the surrounds (sound), and Ingrid Kallick for mis-en-scene (set), "Shiny Things" promises to entertain, instruct, and occasionally bemuse and outrage.

Heather Renken is the most esteemed director. Her first play, Oh God, There's Baptists at the Door, premiered at BST two years ago.
