Adam Samtur, Stage Manager

Our fearless stage manager (middle) is also a playwright and co-founder of Just Ask Productions. I just caught his recent show at the The Red Room. I can't pronounce the title of the show, but luckily if you go to buy tickets, just give the cashier an odd look and you'll get a ticket to What('s) Happen(s)(ed)(ing) in the Elevator...

The title says it all - every scene revolves around events that take place just before or just after a fateful meeting in an elevator. The work plays with time, giving us snippets of life out of sequence, as if we were glimpsing fragments of human life through a telescope on Mars. Indeed, one of the characters in this ensemble cast may actually be from Mars. I liked the range of characters - the play (I can't write out the title) is a document of sorts that catalogs the variety of life on our planet, including the ethnic, glass and gender differences. Most importantly though, the show is fun! You'll see a pornstar cum novelist cum columnist blossom on stage (no pun intended), and a restaurant manager on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Go see What's(s) Happend (ed)('s)... damn, just go see the show!
