We parked on Ave deLafayette, in the garage. $18. Not outrageous, and less than a block away.

The weather was inclement, starting to snow. I wore nice jeans and a sweater. The temperature in the theater was perfect. Most people were dressed semi-casually. Probably more to do with the weather, but being a more modern show, would not be out of place any other time..

Quotes & Highlights

“The temperature never stops rising … There is more erotic heat generated by the two central characters … seamlessly blends the visual poetry into the naturalistic” —The New York Times

Description

South African-born and internationally acclaimed director Yael Farber sets her explosive new adaptation of Strindberg’s classic Miss Julie in the smoldering kitchen of a remote estate 18 years after the end of apartheid. In a brutal and tender single night we witness the shifting dynamics between a black farm laborer, his “master’s” daughter and the woman who has raised them both. The visceral struggles of contemporary South Africa are revealed in a fierce battle over power, sexuality, memory, mothers and land. Haunting and violent, intimate and heartbreaking, the struggles take place among the characters and with their ancestors, laying bare questions of what restitution and freedom can really mean and what losses can and cannot ever be recovered. An international success, Mies Julie is the recipient of seven awards (including a Fringe First) and has received nearly 30 five-star reviews.
