Aurora sets off 'Sirens,' honors canceled tickets

Posted By on Thu, Jan 13, 2011 at 4:14 PM

Several performing arts events have been canceled for Thursday night due to the persistence of icy conditions, but Aurora Theatre's opening night of Sirens is not one of them. According to Aurora sales & marketing director Al Stilo,

We are pushing ahead with the opening of our new comedy Sirens by Deborah Zoe Laufer. We would like to offer anyone with proof of purchase of a theatre ticket for a canceled performance the chance to come to Aurora Theatre tonight for free. In essence we will honor their canceled ticket. The restaurants on the Lawrenceville Square are all open and ready for pre-show diners. The free City of Lawrenceville parking deck connects directly to the Aurora Theatre lobby.

While sharing the title of a 1994 Hugh Grant film with lots and lots of nudity, this Sirens is a comedy by Deborah Joe Laufer, author of Horizon Theatre's recent, winning End Days. The comedy depicts "Sam and Rose who, after twenty-five years find the passion in their marriage has ebbed. The cure is a romantic cruise to the mythical Greek Isles. That is, until washed-up songwriter Sam hears his siren calling, and chucks himself overboard." Susan Reid directs Mary Lynn Owen, Steve Coulter, Lowrey Brown and Kate Donadio (as the siren). Aurora gives the play "three and a half chili peppers for spicy language and content."
