Drew Larimore’s Latest Play Gets Rave Reviews in National Media
Streaming February 13-March 13, 2021
The Studios of Key West will present a virtual production of the powerful and timely new play SMITHTOWN, written by Drew Larimore and directed by Stephen Kitsakos, Studios of Key West Artistic Associate. SMITHTOWN is a series of four interconnected but distinct monologues featuring an ensemble of top Broadway and television actors: Michael Urie (Broadway revival of Torch Song, “Ugly Betty”), Ann Harada (Avenue Q and Cinderella on Broadway), Colby Lewis (Chicago’s Hamilton, “Chicago Med”), and Constance Shulman (“Orange is the New Black” on Netflix, The Rose Tattoo on Broadway). The play will be available for a two-week online engagement from February 13 to February 27. Tickets are available at tskw.org/smithtown-2.
Incisively dark and funny, SMITHTOWN shines a spotlight on the ways we communicate, and miscommunicate, in a rapidly evolving digital era, when the rules of conduct change by the minute, and loneliness and isolation seem to be the order of the day. “I wrote Smithtown a few years ago and felt compelled to revisit it in light of the pandemic,” said Larimore, “Technology is at the core of the play, so producing it now in this online format couldn’t be more appropriate.”

“The astonishing thing about Drew Larimore’s play “Smithtown”… is that it is fundamentally a drama of profound disconnection. You might think of “Smithtown” as a kind of techno-twist on “Rashomon,” where a story is revealed in multiple accounts — except that the characters and accounts revealed in “Smithtown” will never confront one another or be adjudicated.” – Louisville’s LEO Weekly reviews “Smithtown”
