Spinning Tree Theatre will continue its seventh season with the Kansas City premiere of Mark Hampton and Mary Louise Wilson’s one-woman play FULL GALLOP.
Directed by Doug Weaver, the production features Cheryl Weaver as fashion doyenne Diana Vreeland who stood at the center of American fashion for five decades as editor of Harper’s Bazar, and Vogue Magazine.
The production team for FULL GALLOP includes Stage Manager Taylorrae Burton, Lighting Designer Nicole Jaja, Properties and Scenic Designer De De DeVille, Sound Designer Jeff Eubank, and Assistant Stage Manager Victoria Barbee.
From the press release: Based on the life of Diana Vreeland, FULL GALLOP is a portrait of a remarkable woman at a turning point in her life.
Vreeland has just returned home to New York after four months in Europe—a trip she took after being fired from Vogue magazine. She throws an impromptu dinner party in the hope that a wealthy friend who is invited will bankroll her in starting a magazine of her own. Other friends, however, attempt to persuade her to take a job at the famed Metropolitan Museum of Art. In her distinctive style, once she decides in which direction her life will move, she goes at it “full gallop.”
FULL GALLOP runs January 26th – February 11th at Just Off Broadway Theatre, 3051 Central in Kansas City, Missouri. For more information visit spinningtreetheatre.com.
