lasso purpleIt took 17 seasons, but Atlanta’s smart, gutsy, bold Synchronicity Theatre finally has its own, permanent home. The Peachtree Street space opens Sept. 26 with Lasso of Truth, the sassy, sexy Wonder Woman origin story by Carson Kreitzer (1:23 at Synchronicity, The Love Song of J. Robert Oppenheimer at Actor’s Express).

Join us online at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday for a chat with Rachel May, Synchronicity’s co-founder and producing artistic director. We’ll talk about the new space and the new season, which includes the comic-book-styled Lasso, a National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere, plus the Family Series shows Lyle the Crocodile and StinkyKids the Musical.

Lasso of Truth, running Sept. 26-Oct. 19, puts Wonder Woman, film noir, Gloria Steinem and Gen X comic book lovers in the blender that is Carson Kreitzer’s imagination. What you get is a smart, seductive and wild romp through generations of sexual politics. Will we ever look at gender roles the same way? May directs a cast featuring Kevin Stillwell, Tenaya Cleveland and Bryn Striepe as the trio at the center of the story, with Matthew Myers and Christin Orr adding contemporary touches as the Guy and the Girl.

This. Will. Be. Fun. We promise. Sign up HERE and use that link to join us for the chat. You’ll be able to watch, follow along and ask your own questions. The conversation will then be archived on YouTube so you can see it again and again.
