Crimes Of the Heart August 8-23
In this deeply touching Southern Gothic comedy, three young sisters reunite in their Mississippi hometown to await news of their hospitalized grandfather -- and that's just the start of their very bad day. With emotional troubles in the past and immediate troubles with the law, each of the dysfunctional Magrath sisters is forced to face the consequences of her crimes of the heart. Imaginative and hilarious, unpredictable and moving, this play is a contemporary classic, honoring playwright Beth Henley with both a Pulitzer Prize and a New York Drama Critics Circle Award -- and later becoming an Academy Award-nominated film starring Diane Keaton, Jessica Lange and Sissy Spacek. The New York Post noted, "It has heart, wit and a surprisingly zany passion that must carry all before it ... it would certainly be a crime for anyone interested in theater to not see this play.
Jesus Christ Superstar is a 1970 rock opera with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice. The musical is loosely based on the Gospels' accounts of the last week of Jesus' life, beginning with the preparation for the arrival of Jesus and his disciples in Jerusalem and ending with the crucifixion. It highlights political and interpersonal struggles between Judas Iscariot and Jesus, struggles that are not in the Bible narratives. The resurrection is not included. It therefore largely follows the form of a traditional passion play.
