Circle Mirror Transformation follows five small town Vermonters as they take a community acting class, each with their own expectations. They soon learn more about each other and themselves than they bargained for. Circle Mirror Transformationpremiered at Playwrights Horizons in New York in October 2009 for a scheduled month long run. Due to its enormous popularity and critical acclaim (The New York Times called it “absorbing, unblinking and sharply funny”), it was extended several times and ran through January 2010.
The cast includes PURE veterans Pam Galle (Sheep’s Clothing), Sullivan Graci Hamilton (Ginger, Speech and Debate), Randy Neale (Yankee Tavern, The Seafarer), Carri Schwab (Ginger), and Paul Whitty (Sheep’s Clothing, Hogs, Faith Hope & Charity)
