New Play THE NICETIES Lights Up Newly Opened Second Stage The Studio At Shadowland Stages

SHADOWLAND STAGES today announced that THE NICETIES - a firecracker of a play currently lighting up the organization's newly completed black box theatre, The Studio at SHADOWLAND STAGES, has been EXTENDED by one week due to overwhelmingly positive critical and popular response.

In THE NICETIES, by Eleanor Burgess, A black student visits her white professor during office hours to discuss her paper on the American Revolution. But the polite review of her thesis soon explodes into a high-stakes debate over race, history, power, and revolution. And when it goes public, what's been said can't be unsaid, and both women face the consequences.

Artistic Director Brendan Burke said "We're thrilled how this timely play is sparking such robust and profound discussions among our audience. We're excited to extend the opportunity for people to experience both the production and this amazing new venue."

Critics and audiences alike have been unanimous in their praise for both the production and the new performance space.
