Terrence McNally’s A PERFECT GANESH coming to @LunaStageCo

Here on Busker Alley, we don’t usually just quote press releases. But in this case, time is of the essence, lest you miss a rare opportunity to see one of Terrence McNally’s classic works:ganesh

Luna Stage begins 2015 with a revival of A Perfect Ganesh, Terrence McNally’s beautiful story of love and redemption. A Perfect Ganesh opens to previews on Thursday January 29, 2015 and runs Thursdays through Sundays through February 22nd. Opening night is Saturday January 31, 2015.  Select performances are followed by Talkbacks with the creative team. Tickets range from $25-$35.  Group sales available. $10 Student Rush tickets available one half-hour before curtain. Individual tickets can be purchased at lunastage.org, or at the box office Tues.-Fri. 10am-3pm (973-395-5551).

A Perfect Ganesh finds two outwardly unremarkable middle-aged women on a quest for meaning  via a rousing tour of India. Each woman having her own secret dreams of what the fabled land of intoxicating opposites will do for the suffering she hides within. Faced with the women’s despair, who but the golden elephant god could intervene? Fluid in his power to assume any guise, at peace with all things, Ganesha is the spiritual center around which the play spins itself, drawing upon the tragic and the comic, the beautiful and the deplorable, until a breathtaking release arrives for both women at his hands.

Luna Stage’s revival of A Perfect Ganesh is directed by James Glossman, and features a cast of four: Segun Akande, Mona Hennessy, James Rana, Linda Setzer. 
Luna Stage, a proud member of Valley Arts, is located at 555 Valley Road, West Orange, NJ 07052. The theatre is handicapped accessible and offers assistive listening devices.
