NJ Rep Presents "middlemen"

(Long Branch, NJ) -- New Jersey Repertory Company, located at 179 Broadway in Long Branch, is proud to announce the New Jersey Premiere of "middlemen", written by David Jenkins and directed by Marc Geller, on November 7 through December 8, 2013.

Ripped from the headlines, this highly topical play deals with the cynicism and corruption that has come to characterize our financial institutions and Wall Street. Amid the drone of industrial air conditioning and the buzz of fluorescent lights, middle manager Stan (Duncan Rogers) and fiscal analyst Michael (David Friedlander) toil away on an exhaustive annual report in their desolate sixty-floor office tower. One-by-one, their co-workers have mysteriously disappeared, but neither really seems to care about anything, except that no one bought milk for their break-room and one of them may have been responsible for the collapse of Bolivia.

Performances are Thursdays, Fridays at 8:00 pm; Saturdays at 3:00 pm and 8:00 pm; and Sundays at 2:00 pm November 7 - December 8. Special reduced price previews are on Thursday, November 7 and Friday, November 8 at 2:00 pm and 8:00 pm, and Saturday, November 9 at 3:00 pm. Opening night with reception is Saturday, November 9 at 8:00 pm.

Tickets are $40; Previews are $35; Opening night with reception is $50. Discounts are available for seniors (65+), students (full-time 13-25), and groups of 10 or more.

NJ Rep is a year-round, professional, non-profit theater located at 179 Broadway in Long Branch only minutes from the Jersey Shore. Free on-site parking is available and there is easy access from NJ Transit (North Jersey Coast Line) and Academy Buses.
