WELL Plays At Theater Hopkins Thru 3/1

Theatre Hopkins is currently presenting Lisa Kron's "Well," at the Swirnow Theater in the Mattin Arts Center on the Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus,

Actress and playwright Lisa Kron was nominated for a Tony Award for her work in this innovative comedy. Kron has penned an autobiographical comedy in a theatrical style suggesting Thornton Wilder.

Edward Albee praised the play: "Lisa Kron's 'Well' is a splendid play - very funny and deeply serious. If an audience will give itself to it without preconceptions of how a play should behave, then they will have a deeply satisfying time."

Theatre Hopkins' cast is led by Lisa Hodsoll and Gail Anderson also features John D'Amato, Laura Gifford, Tawana Kane and Archie Williams.

The production will run three weekends through Sunday, March 1. Curtain time for Friday and Saturday performances is 8 p.m.; Sunday matinees begin at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $15 for Saturday evenings and Sunday matinees. Student rush tickets for $5 are available at curtain time, if space allows.
A limited number of free tickets will be available at the door on Fridays, Feb, 20 and Feb. 27.

In addition Theatre Hopkins will present two Saturday matinee staged-reading performances of "Ancestral Voices" by A. R. Gurney on Feb. 21 and 28, at 2 p.m. at the Swirnow Theater in the Mattin Arts Center. Tickets are $10.

For reservations or information regarding either production, contact Theater Hopkins at (410) 516-7159, or by e-mail to thehop@jhu.edu.

Founded in 1921, Theatre Hopkins is the second-oldest theater group in Baltimore. Originally an extension of the English Department at the Johns Hopkins University, within 10 years it became a community-based, semi-professional theater housed by the university, performing for the Johns Hopkins community, alumni and the general public. Collaborating with an informal ensemble of adult actors and professional technical craftsmen, the mission of Theatre Hopkins remains consistent with the purpose established at its inception in 1921: to showcase distinguished pieces of dramatic literature, drawn from both the classic and contemporary repertoire.
