2 min read

Starring Michael Nardelli and Jennifer Gouchoe at Hollywood Fringe Festival 2024

Aleksandar Popovic (Starz Power) directs Michael Nardelli (American Crime Story) and Jennifer Gouchoe (Slut Chain) in this revival of Edward Allan Baker’s 1980’s set tragicomedy, North of Providence. The trio met at the Ivana Chubbuck Studio in LA, where Aleksandar is both a teacher and pupil. Jennifer and Michael began workshopping a scene from Providence earlier this Spring in Chubbuck’s master class; their passion and dedication to the material inspired the famed acting coach to urge them to expand their work and put up the show as a one act in the Hollywood Fringe Festival at The Stephanie Feury Theatre, (5636 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90038.)

In North of Providence, author Edward Allan Baker explores the universal complications we face with our “families of origin.” The play details a painful crisis between brother and sister. As the ultimate loss of their father looms, Carol and Bobbie reluctantly coming together in a darkened room as they comb the disarray of their lives to discover what’s torn them apart and finally, the truths that keep them together.

There will be five performances beginning Thursday June 6, 5:30 PM, Saturday June 15, 6:00 PM, Wednesday June 19, 10:00 PM, Sunday June 23, 7:00 PM and Friday June 28, 5:30 PM.

Tickets are $20 and available at the Hollywood Fringe Website HERE.

*North of Providence was first produced by New York’s Ensemble Studio Theatre in New York in 1985. Mel Gussow of the New York Times wrote at the time; “In North of Providence, Edward Allan Baker takes a painful domestic crisis and transforms it into a one act play of emotional depth and conviction. An exemplar of the one act art.”
