SUNY Broome’s theater production, “Curtains Up on Broadway: A Selection of Stage and Film Masterpieces” performed to more than 200 cheering audience members over two performances on Nov. 21 and 22.
The show included live music throughout with two musical works from “West Side Story,” two very dramatic scenes from August Wilson’s “Fences” and John Patrick Shanley’s “Doubt, A Parable,” a romantic scene from “Look Homeward, Angel,” and entertaining and compelling extracts from Edward Albee’s “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf” and Neil Simon’s “Lost in Yonkers.”
All the scenes were from works that won multiple awards including Pulitzers, Oscars and Tony’s. . . . and all were notable plays that were then made into first-rate films.
Pictured are moments from the actual performances from West Side Story’s “America,” “Doubt, A Parable” with director Katherine Bacon in the role of Sister Aloysius and “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf.”
