DARK PLAY OR STORIES FOR BOYS


by Carlos Murillo
Directed by Adil Mansoor
Feb. 20-22

Nature, with all its insurmountable obstacles, doesn’t really exist anymore, does it?

A dark play is a certain kind of game. Some of its players know they are playing. Others are completely unaware. In Dark Play Or Stories for Boys reality is caught somewhere between fact and fiction, where digital avatars have power over flesh and blood. Man looks like woman, love looks like hatred, and the truth looks like nothing at all.

CABARET


Book by Joe Masteroff Based on the play by John Van Druten and Stories by Christopher Isherwood Music By John Kander; Lyrics by Fred Ebb
Directed and Choreographed by Tomé Cousin
Music Direction by Rick Edinger
Feb. 21-March 2

There was a cabaret, and there was a master of ceremonies… and there was a city called Berlin, in a country called Germany…and it was the end of the world.”

Cabaret is an award-winning, Kander and Ebb musical that explores what it means to live a life of excess in a world of increasing restraints, and at what point being carefree becomes careless. The unabashed decadence of 1930s Berlin envelops American writer Cliff Bradshaw with the help of a vivacious, seductive, and talented cabaret performer, Sally Bowles. As Hitler’s totalitarian regime looms larger and larger, it becomes clear to Cliff that this lavish lifestyle is just a beautiful distraction.

George: Gracie, coming down to the studio today I saw a big banner saying, “Send Gracie to Washington.” What does this mean?
Gracie: Well, George, I’ll let you in on a secret. I’m running for president.
George: But in the entire history of the United States, there’s never been a woman president.
Gracie: Yeah, isn’t that exciting? I’ll be the first one.

In 1940, a famous comedienne by the name of Gracie led one of the greatest radio pranks of all time: a “run” for president of the United States. It’s in the Bag puts together highlights of Gracie’s prank with the lowlights from the dozens of real campaigns women have run for U.S. President. Old time radio soundstage magic, classic and contemporary misogyny, and a whole lot of campaign pins prick through decades of U.S. political noise to ask: how long will a woman running for president still be just a joke?
