In this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning drama set in the Bronx in 1964, Sister Aloysius, the principal of a Catholic school in the borough, takes matters into her own hands when she suspects that young newcomer Father Flynn has sexually abused the school's only black student. As she wrestles with her doubts, she questions an idealistic young nun and the mother of the alleged victim, perhaps changing them forever. The 2008 film adaptation, starring Meryl Streep, Amy Adams, Viola Davis and Philip Seymour Hoffman, earned Oscar nominations for all four actors. This gripping drama about suspicion, scandal and the elusiveness of moral certainty stars Karen MacDonald. Learn More

A nice performance of a Shakespeare play I've never seen or read before. It was geared towards a high school class-trip audience (there were two classes there when I attended; there was a discussion with the actors after the play which I didn't stick around for). The actors over-emoted/acted to make sure the audience understood the meaning behind Shakespeare's words. Still, they did a good job. The theater was nice, newly remodeled and very intimate; the actors used the whole space, including the balcony.

Antony and Cleopatra brings us close to great leaders and iconic lovers in the tumult of a changing world. This beautiful and tragic play allows us to experience, in one intimate evening, the heights what we want but cannot have, and take us on a personal journey into greatness, celebrity, sacrifice, love and loss.
