DUTCHMAN Opens 7/24 At Celebration Arts Theatre In Sacramento
Celebration Arts presents Dutchman, a drama by LeRoi Jones/Amiri Baraka. Directed by Vada Russel, Dutchman will open on July 24, and show Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. through August 29, 2009. There will be no performance on July 26. Celebration Arts Theatre is located at 4469 D Street, Sacramento.
Set in 1964, this is the first of Jones' successes, and the cause of his critical acclaim. A vivacious young white woman tries every vulgar way she knows to pick up and seduce a decent black youth in a subway car. Failing, she resorts to humiliating him. This breaks the façade of his decency as he descends to her level for a spitfire fight.
Ticket price: $15 general and $13 students and seniors. On Thursday night all seats are $8. Call (916) 455-2787 for information and reservations. Tickets may be purchased on-line at www.mycommunitytickets.com.
