DISGRACED in Broadway DISGRACED
San Jose Stage Company
2/1-2/26/2017
2013 Pulitzer Prize-Winning Drama DISGRACED By Ayad Akhtar Directed by William Ontiveros February 1 – 26, 2017 Get Tix: https://sjstage.vbotickets.com/event/Disgraced/14623 "Terrific, turbulent, with fresh currents of dramatic electricity. Disgraced comes roaring to life on Broadway." -The New York Times "...breathtaking, raw and blistering" - Associated Press “A sparkling and combustible contemporary drama” - Bloomberg News Can anyone ever truly escape their past? Amir Kapoor is living the American Dream and quickly climbing the corporate ladder at his powerful Manhattan law firm. But when Amir and his wife Emily, an artist inspired by Islamic painting, host a dinner party for friends and colleagues, the pleasant evening quickly erupts into a volatile cultural debate over race, religion, and class in the modern world. This combustible drama is the “emotionally shattering” (Newsday) tale of the stories we tell our friends, the secrets we tell our lovers, and the lies we tell ourselves to find our place in the American Dream. Fearlessly examining the state of Islamic faith combined with the American Ideal, Ayad Akhtar probes at faith mixed with cultural assimilation in the modern world. Disgraced has become the most produced play in contemporary theatre. This Pulitzer Prize-winning and Tony-nominated play provokes audiences with powerful societal commentary. Featuring Salim Razawi, Allison F. Rich*, Damien Seperi, Kathryn Smith-McGlynn*, Jonathan Rhys Williams*. Directed by William Ontiveros, Scenic Design by Guilio Cesare Perrone, Costume Design by Abra Berman, Light Design by Maurice Vercoutere, Sound Design by Steve Schoenbeck, Stage Manager Jamie D. Mann*. *Actors appear courtesy of Actors’ Equity Association.
