Vivid Stage presents NJ Premiere of "Kodachrome"

(SUMMIT, NJ) -- Vivid Stage, in residence at Oakes Center (120 Morris Avenue) in Summit, will present the New Jersey premiere of Kodachrome, a play about love, nostalgia, the seasons and how we learn to say goodbye, written by Adam Szymkowicz, from April 18-28, 2024. 

Kodachrome welcomes audiences to Colchester, a small town where everybody knows each other and the pace of life allows the pursuit of love to take up as much space as it needs. Our tour guide is Suzanne, the town photographer, who lets us peek into her neighbors’ lives to catch glimpses of romance in all its stages of development. Broadway World describes the play as: “Tender and poignant and awkward and funny all at the same time – you know, just like life.”

Directed by Betsy True (Montclair), the cast includes Vivid Stage ensemble members Harry Patrick Christian (Montclair), Jason Szamreta (Long Branch), and Harriett Trangucci (Summit). It also features guests Sarah Cuneo (Bloomfield) and J.F. Seary (NYC).

Kodachrome will appear at Vivid Stage at 120 Morris Avenue in Summit from April 18 through 28. Performances are Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights at 8:00pm, and Sundays at 2:00pm. Special dates: Thursday, April 18, is a preview performance; all tickets are $28. Sunday, April 21, is Senior Sunday; seniors age 65+ pay $28. Talkbacks follow the April 21 and April 28 matinée performances. On Saturday, April 27, there will be a Friends and Family event before the performance, with a buffet dinner catered by the Village Trattoria (BYOB) starting at 6:30. The cost is an add-on to the show ticket of $20.

Tickets range from $25 to $42, with special rates for subscribers and groups. For touchless advance ticket purchases, go to their website. For more information, call 908-514-9654. The theatre at Oakes Center is wheelchair accessible. Assisted listening devices are available at all performances. The parking lot is accessible from Ashwood Avenue, behind the theatre.
