Audition for Heaven*, a new play!

From Michael Steves ’13, who it seems you may or may not consider God:

Come audition for Heaven*, a new play produced by Second Stage! The play is a comedy about a hopelessly average old woman’s journey through an afterlife in which she gets to relive one moment of her life as it was, relive one moment with the ability to change it, and finally must audition to get into Heaven (in a process that resembles a particularly superficial version of American Idol).

Auditions will be held from 2-5pm Saturday and Sunday from 2:30-6pm. No preparation is necessary- just show up ready to read a few scenes.

The show goes up the weekend of October 29th.

  • Date:   Sept. 10
  • Time:   2:00 PM – 5:00 PM
  • Place:  Saturday will be in the CFA Theater and Dance Studios East Room,
  • Date: Sept 11
  • Time: 2:30 PM – 6:00 PM
  • Place: Theater Studio Jones Room

Tonight: Dance Party after Dewey Dell

After tonight’s U.S. premiere performance of à elle vide in the Patricelli ’92 Theater by the young Italian experimental theater company Dewey Dell, there will be a dance party for the audience featuring a live performance by Black Fanfare.

DJ and composer Demetrio Castellucci explores electronic music and tribal sounds, featuring Dewey Dell soundtracks and other original selections.

à elle vide is a twenty-minute work that focuses on the void between two characters, the red Rooster and the white Scorpion, featuring rhythmic movement set to haunting electronic music. Watch a clip on YouTube past the jump.
