ABOUT THE MUSICAL: Pippin is a young prince who longs to find passion and adventure in his quest to live an extraordinary life. His journey is encouraged by the seductive, yet sinister Leading Player, a Mephistophelean figure who lures the naïve prince into a variety of "extraordinary" experiences, to the final "One Perfect Act." Full of soaring songs from the composer of Wicked and Godspell, this unforgettable show is the winner of four 2013 Tony Awards, including Best Musical Revival.
Winter 2015: The Last Days of Judas Iscariot by Stephen Adley Guirgis
PERFORMANCES: March 13-22, 2015
ABOUT THE PLAY: Set in a time-bending, darkly comic world between heaven and hell, The Last Days of Judas Iscariot reexamines the plight and fate of the New Testament's most infamous and unexplained sinner.
The place is Hope, in a corner of Purgatory, and the cosmic court is in session when a defense attorney, outraged that Judas remains condemned for eternity, obtains a writ from God to force a retrial. Both the defense and prosecuting attorney (who, comically, has arrived from hell for the trial) bring in a number of colorful witnesses, including some street-talking saints, some disciples, Sigmund Freud, Mother Teresa, and even a jaded Satan. The play explores the conflict between divine mercy and human free will, despair, age-old questions about sin and mercy, and, ultimately, forgiveness.
TECHNICAL POSITIONS: Positions for Light and Sound Board Operators, Stage Manager, backstage crew, and construction crew are available.
