PALM BEACH DRAMA WORKS PRESENTS
THE WORLD PREMIERE PRODUCTION OF “BILLY & ME”
Billy and Me, a new play by Terry Teachout, author of the acclaimed “Satchmo at the Waldorf,” received its world premiere at Palm Beach Dramaworks. A work of fiction freely based on fact, the play speculates on the tempestuous friendship between playwrights Tennessee Williams and William Inge.
Billy and Me is a trip down memory lane, narrated by Artistic Director William Hayes who directs the premiere. The first act of the show is set at a bar in Chicago on December 31, 1944, immediately after a pre-Broadway tryout of William’s “The Glass Menagerie." The play continues almost 15 years later in Inge’s Manhattan apartment, a few hours after the Broadway premiere of his first flop, "A Loss of Roses."
It’s a play about love and jealousy. An artist is a person who can’t do anything else with his life. Writing is his fate, it’s that or nothing. But he can’t become an artist until he accepts that fate and acknowledges his true nature. That’s a big part of what this play is about, the struggle of two great American playwrights to come to terms with who they really were. Billy and Me stars Nicholas Richberg, Tom Wahl and Cliff Burgess.
Tickets are now on sale at $75 with specially priced preview tickets at $55 and opening nights at $90. Students $15, and pay your age tickets for those 18 to 40, also group rates for 20 or more. For more information call the box office at 561-514-4042, located at 201 Clematis Street, West Palm Beach, or visit online at www.palmbeachdramaworks.org.
