Walter Cronkite is Dead.

A World Premiere Written & Directed by Joe Calarco

October 26 – December 19, 2010


In a world that seems to be spinning beyond their control, two women find themselves sharing a table, stuck in an airport by a storm. Representing two sides of the culture wars—one red state, the other blue state—Margaret and Patty reluctantly strike up a conversation that encourages them to open up, challenge their preconceived notions, and find common ground.

Joe Calarco, the Helen Hayes Award-winning director of Side Show and Assassins, and a Signature Artistic Associate, has written a charming and intimate new comedy that explores the choices we all make, the regrets with which we burden ourselves, and at the losses we suffer as we age, mature, and stride through an incomprehensible world.

“Joe Calarco is a theater man of imagination and vision.” —The New York Times
