Over in the pixelated pages of Red Bank oRBit, we dote on the doings of our area’s professional stage troupes Red Bank’s own Two River Theater Company, and NJ Rep in Long Branch. And, every so often, we like to remind our readers that there’s a third group of passionate pros based in the greater Red Bank orbit one that’s been nominally “homeless,” although that’s one of the projects they’re working to address right at this moment.
ReVision Theatre Company of Asbury Park is the energetic group of “hermit crabs” that’s made itself at home in such oddball settings as the roundhouse Carousel building and the Bingo hall of the city’s VFW. While we wait on word of their upcoming summer season of shows, the ReVisionaries have put together a tidy little package to provide storytime thrills during the quiet-time interlude of the Jersey Shore winter/spring.
Entitled Readings from Asbury Park, it’s a free monthly series of staged readings, spotlighting new plays and musicals and allowing the audience to weigh in on what they’ve seen. The event kicks off this coming Monday, with a pair of experienced TV actors featured in the Jeff Hughes script In the Jersey City Moonlight. Best of all, it takes place at The Showroom, the nifty little neighborhood nickelodeon that’s really pushed the envelope on what a movie house could be. We’ve got a newsreel with ReVision’s David Leidholdt (above) and your coming attractions of future offerings, with more weekend picks to come on Friday, ONLY in Red Bank oRBit!
