Princeton Summer Theater's 48th Season Opens with Schwartz's PIPPIN
This summer's season explores the interplay between the past and the present. The characters in each play demonstrate vastly different ways of dealing with their individual histories. All are made stronger through the struggle of facing this adversity. These wonderfully diverse works are reflective of the challenges posed to us today by a society divided over whether it is better to look to the past for inspiration or move in the direction of future progress.
Performances for Pippin run June 22-25, June 29-July 2 and July 6-9, with shows at 8pm Thursday through Saturday, and 2pm on Saturdays and Sundays. Performances are at the Hamilton Murray Theater located on Princeton University's campus.
A talkback will occur after Friday, June 23rd's evening performance with the director, cast, creative team, and Professor Brian Herrera, Assistant Professor of Theater at the Lewis Center for the Arts. There will also be a talkback on Friday, June 30th and July 7th.
