Mary Moody Northen Theatre to Open 2013-14 Season With MUSEUM, 9/26-10/6
Mary Moody Northen Theatre, the award-winning producing arm of the St. Edward's University professional theatre training program, kicks off its 41st anniversary season in fine comedic style with Museum, by Tina Howe, running September 26 - October 6, 2013.
Obie award winner Tina Howe sets her effervescent comedy on closing day at a contemporary art exhibition called "The Broken Silence." And break silence she does, with glorious irreverence. All makes and models of people weave in and out of the exhibit hall, offering us a hilarious and heartfelt glimpse at the intersection of life and art. Inspired by actual comments overheard at the Whitney Museum biennial art exhibition, this play promises to engage everyone who has visited a mind-bending art exhibit, created contemporary artwork, or tried to find meaning in abstraction. Featuring Equity guests Babs George, Jarrett King and David Stahl.
Recommended for ages 12 and up.
