SEE WHAT I WANNA SEE

Words and music by Michael John LaChiusa.  Based on short stories by Ryunosuke Akutagawa, as translated by Takashi Kojima.

Directed by Anne Healy

Music Direction by Vicky Nooe

Movement/Choreography by Donald C. Shorter, Jr.

Michael John LaChiusa’s three-part musical explores the nature of truth and lies, as well as lust, greed, murder, and redemption through the stories of a 1950s murder noir, a priest’s crisis of faith, and the final tryst of two lovers. A lush musical score, combining jazz, pop, classical, and Asian influences, drives the storytelling in this virtuosic piece named by New York magazine as one of the Best Musicals of 2005. “Seductively stylish, sharp thinking person’s musical…as smart and entertaining as it is artistic and serious.” 

Contains adult language and subject matter, violence, sexual assault and murder.

LOVE AND INFORMATION

By Caryl Churchill

Directed by Felicia Bertch

Someone sneezes. Someone can’t get a signal. Someone shares a secret. Someone won’t answer the door. Someone put an elephant on the stairs. Someone’s not ready to talk. Someone is her brother’s mother. Someone hates irrational numbers. Someone told the police. Someone got a message from the traffic light. Someone’s never felt like this before. In this fast-moving kaleidoscope more than a hundred characters try to connect and make sense of what they know. Contains adult language, themes and situations, as well as potentially triggering content about mental and emotional health.

General - $10; Fac/Staff/Students/Seniors - $8

9 to 5 THE MUSICAL

Music and Lyrics by Dolly Parton, Book by Patricia Resnick

Directed and Choreographed by J. Austin Eyer

9 to 5 The Musical, based on the groundbreaking 1980 hit movie, is set in the late 1970s. This story about friendship and revenge is often outrageous and thought-provoking while depicting the systemic power structures of the workplace. Pushed to the boiling point, three women concoct a plan to get even with Franklin Hart Jr., the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy, and Doralee live out their wildest fantasy—giving their boss the boot! While Hart remains “otherwise engaged,” the women transform their workplace, taking control of the company that had always kept them down. Contains firearms, adult themes, and mild language.

General - $12; Fac/Staff/Students/Seniors - $10
