SCRANTON — Power and painted ladies. Big money and miners.
Welcome to “The Bristol,” an original play based on real events in the Providence neighborhood of Scranton. Local playwrights Margo L. and Marnie Azzarelli blended history, comedy and drama into the show, offering new insight into the city’s oldest section of town.
Produced by Diva Productions, “The Bristol” is a historical drama/comedy, depicting how the Providence Divorce Bill of 1877 affected local residents at the time. The play, which is based on true events, opened on April 14 at The Olde Brick Theater, 126 W. Market St. The show ran April 14 through 17, and will continue April 22 through 24. Friday and Saturday shows begin at 8 p.m. with Sunday matinees starting at 2 p.m.
Tickets are $12 for general admission and $10 for students and senior citizens. Tickets for the April 24 show are $15 with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the Lackawanna Historical Society. Free parking is available in the lot behind the theater and on the street. For tickets and more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 570-209-7766.
