Shakin’ Shakespeare Up

We’ve been talking about it for a few months and the time has finally come. The Capulets and the Montagues have it on in the streets like the Greasers and the Socs in The Acting Company’s modern-day production of Romeo & Juliet, part of our huge Shakespeare at Pace Festival this weekend! >>Read More

Romeo, oh Romeo, where R U? Ready to see the newest interpretation of this classic tale of love, hate, and more than a little swordplay?

 This Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, Tony Award winning theater company The Acting Company previews their national tour of Romeo and Juliet at the Schimmel. This modern production is part of the Shakespeare for a New Generation Initiative and has been described by the New York Times as “a play of enormous, reckless passions.” So move over Leo and Claire, there are new troubled teens in town, and you can be the first to see them this weekend.

Dear “Friend”

Pen pals fall hard for each other. What they don’t know is that they already know and can’t stand each other. What happens next?

In this head-over-heels in love with love musical, Amalia and Georg are pen pals completely in love with each other. Neither knows they are fellow clerks in the same Budapest parfumerie who hate each other. Confusing? Think Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan in You’ve Got Mail but with snail mail instead of email. In fact, You’ve Got Mail is an adaptation of She Loves Me, which is set in the 1930s. It’s charming and nostalgic, relevant and romantic, and the Performing Arts department is bringing it to you on October 27-31 at the Schaeberle Studio Theater in NYC.

So for all you NY152s and Shopgirls out there, email theater@pace.edu or call (212) 346-1954 for reservations and more information.

The Goat

This is a play about an architect at the height of his career whose life crumbles when he falls in love with a goat. And we’re sure it’s going to be anything but mehhhhh.

On September 29–October 3, things get controversial on the NYC Campus as the Performing Arts department presents their production of Tony Award-winning The Goat  or, Who is Sylvia? in the Schaeberle Studio Theatre.

Written by Edward Albee (of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? fame), The Goat follows Martin, an extremely successful architect who’s just won the prestigious Pritzker Architecture Prize and a contract to design a billion dollar dream city; he’s about to turn 50, and has been happily married for more than 22 years. That is, until the truth comes out that Martin is having an affair with Sylvia…a goat.

For information or tickets, call (212) 346-1954 or email theater@pace.edu.

If The Goat isn’t your cup of tea, then maybe it’s time you took matters into your own hands with the Pace New Musicals call for submissions. Have a complete score or script you’d like to see performed by musical theater students in January? Get your submission in by October 8!
