Our 30th Anniversary Season continues with the WNY Premiere of Joan Didion’s The Year of Magical Thinking

From one of America’s most iconic writers, The Year of Magical Thinking is based on Didion’s stunning book of electric honesty and passion. It explores an intensely personal yet universal experience: a portrait of marriage and parenthood, a life in good times and bad, that will speak to anyone who has ever loved and lost.

A professionally produced, fully staged performance will be filmed at ICTC's home, The Andrews Theatre, and will be available for streaming April 9th-25th, 2021.

Led by award-winning Director Kyle LoConti, performed by Raíces Artistic Director Victoria Pérez, and in partnership with Sea Marks’ collaborators Pan-American Film Division, ICTC brings this modern parable to audiences during a time when it may resonate most.

Kate LoConti Alcocer, ICTC’s Executive Artistic Director, chose the play remarking, “The Year of Magical Thinking offers us an opportunity to ruminate on our own journeys through this most singular time. A time when we are readjusting our thinking on grief, loss, and gratitude.”

Supporting the production are Producer/Production Manager Greg Natale, Production Stage Manager Michelle Eisen, Associate Producer Reneé Radzavich, Film/Technical Advisor Salvatore Natale, Set and Costume Designer Jessica Wegrzyn, Sound Designer Tom Makar, Lighting Designer Jayson Clark, Hair/Make-Up Designer Susan Drozd, and Dramaturg Katie Mallinson.

ICTC continues their partnership with award-winning, Buffalo-based Pan-American Film Division. Travis Carlson will serve as Project Lead and Megan Gonsalves as Project Coordinator.

In addition, ICTC is again proud to partner with Deaf Access Services, an affiliate of People Inc., to provide both American Sign Language (ASL) Interpreted and Closed Captioning options for viewing. Patrons can choose to view:
