November 4-19, 2017: JACK GOES BOATING (play)

Erin Cronican as Director, and playing the role of Connie

I am proud to announce my winter project with The Seeing Place - we're taking on the heartwarming dramaedy, JACK GOES BOATING.

Laced with cooking classes, swimming lessons, and a smorgasbord of illegal drugs, JACK GOES BOATING. is a story of date panic, marital meltdown, betrayal, and the prevailing grace of the human spirit. Written by Bob Glaudini, this revival marks the 10th Anniversary of the play’s premiere, originally produced/directed by Philip Seymour Hoffman at LAByrinth Theater. In JACK GOES BOATING, Jack is a shy and awkward man who drives a limo and lives an unassuming life. His friend and co-worker, Clyde, and his wife Lucy, feel sorry for Jack and set him up on a blind date with Connie. Connie shares Jack's shyness and awkwardness, but through each other they seem to be able to find solace within themselves. Trouble might be brewing in paradise though, as Clyde and Lucy's marriage stumbles just as Jack and Connie's relationship grows.

TSP Main Stage - November 4-19, 2017

October 16-December 30, 2017: THIS ONE'S FOR THE GIRLS (musical)

Erin Cronican as Standby for Samantha, Eden and Rosa

I am excited to announce that I've been cast as the female stand-by for the brand new Off-Broadway musical THIS ONE'S FOR THE GIRLS.

THIS ONE'S FOR THE GIRLS is a high-energy celebration of American women featuring Top-40 songs like…RESPECT, Stand by Your Man, Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, These Boots are Made for Walkin’, I Will Survive, and Greatest Love of All.

Performances are Fridays at 8 PM — Saturdays at 2 PM

St. Luke’s Theater ~ 308 West 46th Street, New York City

Tickets can be purchased here: thisonesforthegirlsthemusical.com

Being a stand-by means that I do not have a principal role in the show, but I "stand-by" t provide coverage for any actor that gets injured, has an illness, or goes on vacation. Many stand-bys never go on, and some go on often. What's certain is that I'll have my hands full preparing three separate roles, ready to go on at any time! The show stars Jana Robbins, Traci Bair, Aneesa Folds, and Haley Swindal.

 

...& The Infinite (album, musical and film)

Erin Cronican as Sylvia

I'm in the studio recording the EP for a brand new musical which is being developed for the stage and screen!

Synopsis: Childhood sweethearts Sylvia and Tristan were in the colossal rock band Death of the General. After fifteen years of marriage, raising a child, infidelities, and being in a band together we tell their story as each of them perform their first solo shows after the divorce, their last couples therapy session, and the last album they’ll ever write together.

September 24, 2017: A Midsummer Night's Moose Story (developmental table read of new screenplay)

Erin Cronican as Judith and others

June 30- July 16, 2017: Cloud 9 (play)

Erin Cronican as Edward/Lin

I am proud to announce my summer project with The Seeing Place -we're taking on the socio-political farce, CLOUD 9, by Caryl Churchill

Caryl Churchill's revolutionary masterwork is an audacious and playful take on sexual politics, which resonates today as much as its startling 1979 debut in its exploration of power and perception. Drawing a line between Colonialism and Feminism, this modern classic bends time, gender, and genre and embraces the confusion and complication of identity: What forces define who we are—and at what cost? 

TSP Main Stage - June 30-July 16, 2017

380 Broadway (4th Fl) NYC

Reviews for the show:

"One of the great plays is being produced at The Seeing Place Theater: Cloud 9, a play of such density and dynamism, a play of such warmth and bitter intelligence, a play of such sobering and poignant import…The Seeing Place Theater ensemble, a company I intend to keep my eye on, does this masterwork more than justice in a very fine production co-directed by Brandon Walker and Erin Cronican. Like a veteran trainer, they take this beast of a play, bursting with energy and opportunity, and produce an intelligible and pointed and very enjoyable production." - Aron Carter, Stage Buddy

"Erin Cronican is also notable as the constantly fidgeting young Edward and the appealingly earthy Lin...Throughout the whole ensemble is a yearning sense toward connection, coupled with the conviction that true connection may not be possible." - Zelda Knapp, A Work Unfinishing

"An edgy, seat-of-the-pants production by the always-risk-taking Seeing Place Theater...the cast embraces its barely tamed wildness with all the gusto they can muster, giving the whole an exhilarating improvisational vibe." - Howard Miller, Upstage Downstage

"The Seeing Place Theatre is getting very well known for their strong ensemble and bold production choices.  This very challenging play unfolds moment by moment due to the company’s skillful approach.  They have a sharp focus on the value of the message in Ms. Churchill’s writing, and make is accessible and relevant to a diverse present day audience.  There are very impressive performances by Jane Kahler, Erin Cronican, Brandon Walker, Bill McAndrews, Sabrina Schlegel-Mejia, Robin Friend Stift, and Ari Veach." - Domenick Danza, More Then The Play

"If you liked last season's Sense and Sensibility you'll love The Seeing Place Theater's production of Cloud 9...The ensemble's acting was terrific all around...everyone was magical." - Arthur Wooten, The Dizzy Traveler

"Under the co-direction of Brandon Walker and Erin Cronican, the company’s enthusiastic production at Tribeca’s Access Theater is at times giddy in its playfulness...The Seeing Place meets the challenges Churchill lays out by emphasizing the at times blinding absurdity of power and oppression." - Patrick Maley, Exeunt Magazine

 

July 10, 2017 (7pm): Our Country's Good (reading)

Erin Cronican as Liz Morden

I'm so excited to be a part of presenting this hilarious and thought-provoking play in tandem with our production of CLOUD NINE.

In Timberlake Wertenbaker's dramatization of a real-life incident and Thomas Keneally's novel The Playmaker, it is 1788, and a Royal Marine lieutenant directs several of the criminals and misfits banished to the new British colony of Australia in the first play the country has produced, gradually winning the skeptical fledgling actors over to the magic of the theatre.

April 26, 2017: On The Blade (developmental table read of new screenplay)

Erin Cronican as Emily

It's wonderful to be asked back by Wilderness Films to be a part of their development of "On The Blade" - a feature length drama (based on a true story) about the dangers of college hazing rituals.

Erin Cronican as Kathy

We just found out that "Play Like A Winner" was named the winner of the 2016 Developmental Reading Series and has been invited to present a full production in the 2017 Festival as a part of the Next Link Project.

I'm thrilled to have been invited back to perform the leading role of Kathy in this hilarious musical about motherly love going a little overboard. I have been a part of the developmental process for the past two years, and it's wonderful to see it take its next step of professional development at the New York Music Theater Festival.
