Spearheaded by Tony Award-winning producer Ken Davenport, the Rave Theater Festival is a platform for emerging artists in the theater. The inaugural Rave Theater Festival will take place at Teatro SEA and Teatro LaTea Theatres at The Clemente Soto Velez Cultural Center (107 Suffolk Street, NYC) with a selection of 20 shows spanning plays, musicals, family-friendly shows, and cross-disciplinary projects.
In Joshua Turchin’s The Perfect Fit, Alexandra, a driven child actor with a powerful voice, grows concerned that she is growing too old to play a child and too young to play an adult. After being cast in a musical, she is sabotaged by a vindictive stage parent who would do anything for her daughter to succeed. Alexandra wants to give up her dreams of being a musical star, but her best friend Jake, a budding composer, and her mother, Annie, teach Alexandra to move forward. It is through the heartbreak and defeat that she faces that allow her to find her real perfect fit.
Training Wheels, from Robin Bradford, is about a long-married Lesbian couple, Penny and Katherine, suffer from a gradual breakdown of their relationship. When Penny discovers Katherine’s infidelity, with a man no less, the couple seek marital counseling. Deeply felt emotions force them to reevaluate their lives and their lifestyles.
Doppelgänger, written by Craig Donnelly, follows social media star Max Henderson, who dies in a prank gone wrong. Now his “team” must convince his doppelgänger to take his place.
