SUNY Broome’s Theater Department will perform “Curtains Up on Broadway: A Selection of Stage and Film Masterpieces” from 7:30 to 9 p.m., this Thursday and Friday, Nov. 21 and 22.
Included in the evening will be scenes from “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” by Edward Albee, “Fences” by August Wilson, “West Side Story” by Arthur Laurents, Leonard Bernstein & Stephen Sondheim, “Doubt, A Parable” by John Patrick Shanley, “Lost in Yonkers” by Neil Simon, and “Look Homeward, Angel” by Ketti Frings, based on the famous novel by Thomas Wolfe. Four of the plays won Pulitzer Prizes for Drama as well as numerous Oscars and Tony Awards. All were originally plays that were made into films.
“All the actors are not only honing their skills for future stage or camera work, but they are also gaining in confidence, creativity, problem-solving ability, dedication, accountability, focus and collaboration,” said Associate Professor and Director Katherine Bacon. Katherine is not pictured, but will be appearing in the production in one role.
Don’t miss this entertaining and educational evening of scenes from award-winning dramatic works with live music!
