The Phoebe and Otto Premiere Series Honorary Producers: Sharon & Jeff Weiss I Will Not Go Gently Apr. 21—May 15, 2016 Written & Performed by Jennifer Childs Directed by Harriet Power A faded rock icon returns to the spotlight. A suburban mom tries to reclaim her glory days. A '70s TV superhero tries flying without a cape. In the theatrical style of Anna Deavere Smith, Lily Tomlin, and John Leguizamo, Jennifer Childs brings us a cast of characters who are straddling the divide between the past and the future— deadly sincere, impossibly hopeful, and ready to rock. I Will Not Go Gently will be performed at Plays & Players Theatre, 1714 Delancey St.
