The Hub is staging a REVOLUTION!

September 21, 2009

Dear Hub friends,

We know that you get a lot of requests for donations, so we wanted to take a moment to tell you a little about some of the artists you are helping us put on stage.  Let’s begin with actress Kristen Egermeier, who is playing Margerite in our upcoming production of We Won’t Pay! We Won’t Pay! by Dario Fo.  It opens October 30th at ArtSpace Falls Church.

We asked Kristen to tell us a little bit about herself!

Read below for the scoop, and we hope you will also help The Hub with a

tax deductible donation.

Let’s Be Serious

The women in this play break the rules big time.  Have you ever broken the rules?  Do tell.

Rules?  What rules?  While I believe laws of safety are important, more often than not, I feel that most laws are imposed because they can be.  This is highly frustrating to me, so one of my favorite rules to break is to sneak  “outside food” into a movie theater.  I always clean up after myself though– you could say that I like to live on the edge…


What are you looking forward to most about We Won’t Pay!

I love physical comedy and strong women who make bold choices, so I can’t wait to fill those shoes and see what comes out of that!

The workers in this play revolt – have you ever started a revolution?

I tried to start a recycling revolution, but alas I just became “that girl who picks up trash as she walks”- It was agood try…and I will continue until it catches on!


Many thanks to Kristen for giving us a peek into what makes her tick.  Be sure to come and see her in We Won’t Pay We Won’t Pay! and help us get this next show on its feet.  Join the revolution!

Season 2 Announcement!

September 9, 2009

Join us beginning this fall!  In Season 2 The Hub is excited to bring Dario Fo’s brilliant commentary on the rising cost of living WE WON’T PAY! WE WON’T PAY! to life.  This hysterical political farce will be directed by Patrick Torres. Then in the spring The Hub will stage it’s first musical, THE BOY IN THE BATHROOM by Michael Lluberes.  This Area Premier will bring back director Jeremy Skidmore, who directed The Hub’s critically acclaimed inaugural production of The Pavilion.

The Hub will continue its partnership with the Greater Reston Arts Center with our STAGED READING SERIES and collaborate on multiple offerings for Virginia Commission for the Arts’ MIND’S WIDE OPEN.  Along with our main stages we are enhancing our outreach arm with master classes, a children’s theatre camp that culminates in a performance of Katherine Schultz Miller’s A THOUSAND CRANES, and COMMUNITY VOICES – an urban storytelling workshop and performance which will see The Hub partnering with The Soundry for the first time.
