nathan_frontPlays by or about Virginia Woolf have been in the news lately. Well, here’s another stage-related tidbit: Randy Gener, author of the documentary play Love Seats for Virginia Woolf,  is the latest recipient of the annual George Jean Nathan Award for Dramatic Criticism.

The Nathan Award is the most recent accolade in Gener’s career as a writer, critic, editor, playwright and visual artist based in New York City.  He is also the senior editor of American Theatre magazine and the author of other plays, as well as scholarly essays, articles and reviews. And he has contributed to the latest edition of the Cambridge Guide to American Theatre.

Something exciting is happening right here in my town: the world premier of a new work about Virginia Woolf.

“Unfinished Dialogues” is the name of the “theater dance piece,” which, according to choreographer and director Lynne Taylor-Corbett, is “a loving portrait” of Woolf’s final day of life, March 28, 1941. Amy Miller, a GroundWorks dancer, will portray Woolf writing and interacting with colleagues on the last day of her life.

”I think in those days, with no access to any kind of help or any options, she was hearing voices,” Taylor-Corbett told the Akron Beacon Journal. “I have taken the liberty of saying she was hearing her characters talk to her and her younger self.”

The performance at the Ice/Coal Factory Complex in Akron, Ohio’s Northside district, kicks off the fall season for the GroundWorks Dancetheater. The complex is located at 129 Summit St.

The Woolf work will be on stage Sept. 12 – 14 and Sept. 19-21. Friday and Saturday shows are at 8 p.m., and Sunday matinees are at 2 p.m. Ticket prices are $18, general admission; $12 for students and seniors. Call 216-691-3180, Ext. 4.
