More Information


The Center of the Universe, a compelling play about prejudice, tolerance, and the root of violence in our society, is more relevant than ever in the atmosphere of recent events.

Featuring a cast of ethnically diverse actors ranging between the ages of 15-21, Universe centers on a high school couple torn apart by a senseless act of violence and weaves recent events with scenes inspired by historical stories of slavery and the Holocaust to create an unforgettable message about the value of human life. The performance will conclude with an open-forum, audience interactive discussion about the role of today’s youth in combating racism and other tragic acts of intolerance.

Written well before the World Trade Center attacks and the school shootings in Columbine, Colorado, Universe became a heavily sought after production shortly after those events.

The Center of the Universe is written by Bruce Gevirtzman and directed by Steve Cisneros.
