The Pulitzer-Prize winning play, HOW I LEARNED TO DRIVE by Paula Vogel, makes its debut at the Paramount Theatre. This unsettling love story about a teenage girl and a middle-aged man is being performed on Thursday, February 16 through Saturday 18 and again on Thursday, February 23 through Saturday 25. The play is produced/directed by George Adams and is presented at The Paramount Theatre on Film Row.
The award-winning drama is often associated with the wistful by-gone era of American youth. The characters of schoolmates, uncles, aunts, grandparents, and the single mother trying to raise a daughter on her own are a familiar picture. Normal to a point, it is the point that is sharpest. We are invited into and become part of the tapestry until we are locked into it only to escape hurt, vulnerable and yet guilty that we took part in these damaged relationships.
The production stars Oklahoma native CheyAnne Strickler as “Li’l Bit”, John Ashton Randolph as “Peck” with the talented ensemble of Kristi Choplin, Cate Jones, and Derek Kenney playing multiple roles.
The Paramount Theatre is located at 11 N. Lee, OKC, OK 73102. Ticket prices are $20 ($15 for students) available at the door. Please call 405.637.9389 for further info.
