2013 Ivey Award-Winning 2 Sugars, Room for Cream

Returns with a Run at the Jerome Hill Theater in November

No matter how bad things get, there’s always coffee. Sometimes there’s even wine.
And when there’s both, well that’s a good day. 

ST. PAUL, MINN. (October 1, 2013) – Beloved Twin Cities actresses Shanan Custer and Carolyn Pool got a huge surprise last week when 2 Sugars, Room for Cream, the hit comedy they wrote and performed, was presented with a 2013 Ivey Award for Ensemble Acting.

Even more shocking was the fact that Custer, as host of this year’s Ivey Awards, was kept completely in the dark up until the moment it was announced. “I'm still slightly frightened by how the whole Ivey's team managed to keep it from me. I had a doctored script with an entirely made up award in the place of our award! Everyone knew but me, including my co-host Randy Reyes!” she said. This is the second Ivey Award recognition for Carolyn Pool, who was previously recognized in 2008 for Ensemble Acting with the cast of Gremlin Theatre’s production of Orson’s Shadow.

Theatre patrons who missed last year’s Hennepin Theatre Trust remount of 2 Sugars, Room for Cream will have another chance to see it this fall, as The Producing House remounts the show in November at the Jerome Hill Theaterin St. Paul. Alternatively funny and touching, this collection of scenes and original music is an honest and silly look at why we drink coffee and other things.

2 Sugars, Room for Cream performs at the Jerome Hill Theater in St. Paul and opens on Wednesday, Nov. 13, running Wednesday through Sunday weekly through Sunday, Dec. 1. There will be no performance on Thanksgiving. Performances Wednesday throughSaturday begin at 7:30pm; Sunday matinees start at 2:30pm.
