Happening right now (well maybe not at this exact moment depending on when you’re reading this) is In the Blood! Which will be in Open Space on March 1, 2, and 3. Directed by Dave McRee and written by Pulitzer-prize-winning Lori Parks, In the Blood is inspired by Hawthorne’s The Scarlett Letter. We follow the story of a woman sheltered by a bridge underpass, caring for her five children. The set looks sick. You should go.
The following weekend Hero by Hailey Bachrach goes up in the Wright Theater! At 7pm March 8th and 9th, witness the journey of King Admentus as he faces the demands of honor and love when his dead wife comes back to life. Hero is a loose adaptation of Alcestis by Euripides and packs a fantastic cast. Sign ups are in the PAC lobby!
You can also catch Spring Awakening in Reisinger Auditorium. March 8th, 9th, and 10th at 7pm (and a matinee on Saturday). See the award-winning musical produced by Soundstage and directed by none other than Sarah Plotkin. Yes I might be plugging here because yours truly is part of the cast. You should cum though. You’ll get the pun if you see the show.
And that about sums it up theatre-wise! If that isn’t enough to tide you over until spring break, you can also check out the Songwriters Collective showcase on March 15th in Slonim Living room at 8 (yes I’m promoting it, our collective is awesome). Godspeed with your conference work and may the arts be with you.
