Industry Night for LAST CALL by Terri Girvin Mon., April 30

First Step Productions at Empire Stage on Monay, April 30 will be having an industry night performance for their critically acclaimed production of LAST CALL. 

A typical day in a bartender's life is full of snap judgments and snappy comebacks.  On this day her two worlds collide when the needy and quirky customers in this New York bar fight for her attention as she deals with a barrage of desperate phone calls from her self-medicating, about-to-be-homeless mother.

Bill Hirschman (Florida Theatre On Stage) said...
Last Call instantly grabs the audience as Girvin enters the bar to set up for the night. Girvin, a diminutive woman with a faint blue collar air, wins us over with a self-deprecating, world-weary wit, a sharp eye for human foibles... But even more telling is when she reveals she’s really thinking. 

Christine Dolen (Miami Herald) said...
Directed by Michael Leeds, with an absolutely vital and superb sound design by Phil Pallazzolo and David Hart, Last Call keeps tugging the engaging, funny Girvin from present to past, from the bar to the giddy messed-up life of her mother Gwen. Girvin plays herself and sometimes her mom, with other actors supplying the voices of the bar’s customers, Girvin’s remarried dad and her three brothers.

With just one more week of performances (Thurs., Fri., and Sat. @8pm; Sun. at 7pm) this may be your last chance to see Terri Girvin's incredible one woman show. 

Cash at the door for walk-ins or cal the reservation line @ 954-383-1896.
