A legendary diva who forgets her lines. The non-famous, sometimes actor paid to remember them.
By popular demand, the hit of Bay Street’s 2018 New Works Festival takes its premiere bow! THE PROMPTER follows veteran actress Irene Young, who, after a forty-year absence, is returning to the Broadway stage. But now, she can’t do it alone; so the production hires a young actor to be her prompter. But, this isn’t her story, it’s his. Based on real events, THE PROMPTER is a funny, heartfelt, untold, behind-the-scenes look at Broadway through the eyes of a young dreamer.
Sundays, Tuesdays through Thursdays at 7 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., Sundays and Wednesdays at 2 p.m.
