Photo Flash: First Look at SU Drama's LIPS TOGETHER, TEETH APARTPhoto Flash: First Look at SU Drama's LIPS TOGETHER, TEETH APART
by BWW News Desk - Feb 19, 2015

Playwright Terrence McNally excels at making wild and witty comedy out of very serious and thoughtful matters. In this 1991 off-Broadway triumph, two couples grapple with the mundane (burgers and kites) and the momentous (illness and infidelity) as they try (very hard) to celebrate the Fourth of July at a beach house. Lips Together, Teeth Apart includes a touch of Chekhov with the sly wickedness of McNally. Presented by the Department of Drama in Syracuse University's College of Visual and Performing Arts (SU Drama), Lips Together, Teeth Apart performs February 20 through March 1 in the Storch Theater at the Syracuse Stage/Drama Complex, 820 East Genesee Street. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below! (more...)
