- B&B Book Club: A Clockwork Orange
Wednesday, October 9, 2019
Taking a nod from the critically-acclaimed 2017 off-Broadway production, this updated adaptation by Anthony Burgess of his own novel lures audiences into a glass-edged, testosterone-filled underworld of a dystopian future. The explosive story of little Alex and his band of Droogs was a groundbreaking classic teeming with sexuality and “a bit of the old ultra-violence”; the story feels as hauntingly relevant today as when the book was published in 1962, and when Stanley Kubrick’s Oscar-n ominated film caused a stir in 1971. A Clockwork Orange remains an unapologetic celebration of the human condition and individual freedoms, and a timely examination of toxic masculinity and the values of society.

I knew from the audition this show was going to be something special. Coming in on day one for the table read and introduction to the production team kicked my excitement into overdrive. Our director, Cassie Greer, dove straight into a biography of Anthony Burgess, a critical analysis of the…
A real dobby evening to thee and thine! As we near the two week-til-opening mark, that old familiar feeling sets in. It creeps into my every fiber like a quiet, warm, liquid fog. Like some sort of increasing internal voltage. What was once a theatrical eternity now feels like only…
