Pielmeier's The Classics Professor Runs at CAP21, 6/1-6/17

Agnes of God playwright John Pielmeier's The Classics Professor will receive a fully staged developmental production at CAP21's The Shop (18 W. 18th St.) from June 1st through 17th.

"Into Professor Alexander's class 'Comedy in Greek Tragedy' steps Daemon, a beautiful young man who turns the good professor's life upside-down. Alexander, who is translating and directing a college production of The Bacchae, suddenly finds that his own life mirrors Euripides' play about losing one's sanity in the throws of passion. This is a comedy about love, lust, madness, death, incest, infidelity and bubblegum," state press notes on the show, which will feature Pielmeier in the title role. Clayton Phillips will direct The Classics Professor.

Elaine Anderson, Peggy Cosgrave, Bram Heidinger, Steve Liebman, and Christina Morrell will star in the show, which will feature costumes by Lynn Bowling and lighting by Kirk Bookman.

"CAP21 (Collaborative Arts Project 21, Inc.), a not-for-profit organization, dedicates itself to the creation of new work, the development of new talent and the building of new audiences.  These three critical and distinct artistic components will drive the entertainment industry in the 21st century," state notes on CAP21 website.
