Azuka Theatre Extends DUTCH MASTERS Through 9/29
Azuka Theatre is pleased to announce that it is extending its Philadelphia Fringe Arts show, Dutch Masters, by one week. Dutch Masters, originally set to close September 22, will now run through September 29, 2013. Tickets cost $25 and are available through www.azukatheatre.org or by calling (215) 563-1100. All shows are performed at the Off-Broad Street Theater at 1636 Sansom Street. Subscriptions and more information are available at www.azukatheatre.org.
Directed by Azuka Theatre's Producing Artistic Director Kevin Glaccum, this sharp new piece of theater takes an arresting and deeply human look at race relations and class issues in the United States. Set in 1992, a chance encounter on a Bronx-bound D train between a young white man and a young black man leads to events neither could expect.
The two-person cast consists of Brendan Dalton and Brandon Pierce. Dalton was last seen as John N. Fail in Azuka's critically acclaimed Failure: A Love Story. Pierce delighted audiences this summer as Valentine in Two Gentleman of Verona at the Delaware Shakespeare Festival; this will be his Azuka Theatre debut.
The schedule for the extended run is:
September 23, 8:00 p.m. (Industry Night)
September 25, 6:30 p.m.
September 26, 8:00 p.m.
September 27, 8:00 p.m.
September 28, 8:00 p.m.
September 29, 2:00 p.m. (Closing Night)
