“I regard theatre as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being.”
-Oscar Wilde

The Department of Theatre Announces its 2017-2018 Season

Fall 2017

Kimberly Akimbo, by David Lindsay-Abaire 

Directed by Thom Delventhal

This is a sweet, hilarious, and harrowing play by one of our modern American masters, David Lindsay-Abaire (Pulitzer Prize and NY Drama Desk Award recipient; Lindsay-Abaire's mentor was Christopher Durang). Kimberly has a rare disease that causes her to age four and a half times as fast as other children. The average life expectancy for those that are afflicted is sixteen. The play opens on the eve of her sixteenth birthday which is, perhaps, the catalyst in her resolving to make a change. Slowly she manifests a plan, with the aid of her new, nerdy, outcast friend to escape her dysfunctional New Jersey family (which includes an alcohol-binging father, hypochondriac mother, and ex-con homeless aunt).

Welcome to Arroyo’s, by Kristoffer Diaz 

Directed by Azario Mastrangelo

The play tells the story of Alejandro's struggle with the grief of losing his mom. He has shut down his feelings and focuses everything on converting his mom's lower-east side bodega into a bar. He stubbornly insists that if he is persistent he will succeed. His sister Molly handles things differently and exercises with passion and volatility her art, graffiti. Two employees of the lounge, Tripp and Nelson, long to bring their hip-hop gifts to the world and consistently try to convince Alejandro to let them change the character and atmosphere of the bar. This actually forms the frame of the play. Tripp and Nelson sit in a DJ's booth and act as a "Greek" hip-hop chorus to the action. Almost the only customer the bar has is a black cop from Boston named Derek Jeter, who brings a comic, romantic edge to the story when he tries to arrest Molly for vandalism.
