The Public Theater's production of Coal Country is returning to the stage for a limited engagement at NYC's Cherry Lane Theatre this month. It was written by husband and wife writing, directing, and acting team Jessica Blank and Erik Jensen, whose credits include The Exonerated and How To Be A Rock Critic (based on the writings of Lester Bangs), and features original music by Steve Earle, who also performs in the show. Here's the description:

Audible Theater is proud to present The Public Theater's critically acclaimed, "gorgeously authentic" (Time Out New York) production of COAL COUNTRY, back by popular demand for a limited engagement.

Jessica Blank and Erik Jensen, the creative minds behind the award-winning docudrama The Exonerated, bring their signature style to this strikingly innovative New York Times Critic’s Pick that delves into the aftermath of the West Virginia mine explosion of 2010, highlighting the indomitable resilience of an American community on a quest for justice.

Featuring the musical talents of three-time Grammy Award® winner Steve Earle, COAL COUNTRY powerfully combines the country/folk legend's "soaring emotional heft and superbly evocative string-picking" (The Hollywood Reporter) with actual first-person accounts from survivors and family members, immortalizing their stories of survival in this soulful yet resolute tribute.

Previews begin on March 4, and tickets are on sale now. You can also get up to 20% off orchestra and side orchestra sets using the code BVEGAN.
