Moving Production about Kurt Cobain, Grunge, and Suicide Opens in May
“We are so fortunate to be able to bring Shiner to Reno” states managing director, Christopher Daniels. “This is only the 5th city to ever premiere the production, so our patrons truly are getting a unique experience.”
Also unique to the production of Shiner is the arrival of regional actor Patrick John Kiernan. “Shiner will be this beautiful melding of local and regional talent to generate a distinctive and one-of-a-kind piece of work”. He has performed regionally with the Idaho Shakespeare Festival, Great Lakes Theater, Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival Shadowland Theatre, Northern Stage, and in New York. Offstage, Patrick is a writer and a sound designer. He is a proud graduate of SUNY New Paltz, with a BA in Theatre Arts.
SHINER was listed on the Tracking Board's 2012 Young and Hungry List, a roll of the top 100 best scripts in Hollywood and was listed as one of the top 10 plays in New Orleans for 2014. “This production could not have come to Reno at a more relevant time” relates Daniels. With the music and arts scene booming in Reno and with the recent release of the authorized documentary of musician Kurt Cobain, Shiner arrives at GLM during a perfect point in the season.
Shiner opens May 15th and runs through June 6th. Evening shows begin at 7:30pm and our matinee begins at 2:00pm. Tickets are $15 pre-sale and $18 at the door. Tickets are available online through brown paper tickets.
