Speak The Speech Theatre presents "The Elephant Man" by Bernard Pomerance and directed by Dan Reichel


The Elephant Man tells the story of a 19th-century British man John Merrick (Ken Bieder) whose severe disfigurement made him a star of the traveling freak show circuit. When the renowned Dr. Treves (Anthony Auriemma) takes Merrick under his care at the London Hospital, he discovers that beneath this shocking exterior lies a brilliant mind and an unshakable faith. Soon all of Victorian high society becomes fascinated by Merrick, especially the beautiful actress Mrs. Kendal (Monica Wolfkill). But with his new life comes new complexity… and as Merrick's condition grows more severe, a 'normal' life begins to seem impossible.

UA's Arizona Repertory Theatre presents CABARET


From: Pierce, Lisa Ann - (lisapierce) []
Sent: Friday, October 9, 2015 3:39 PM
Importance: High


This production is unforgettable. 


Expect to be entertained by a multiple Tony Award-winning musical, but also expect to leave with a lot to think about. As the cloak of darkness slowly enfolds the outside of the Kit Kat Klub in early 1930's Berlin, the inside of the Kit Kat Klub is rife with narcissism, decadence & selective obliviousness. 


Arizona Repertory Theatre's production of Cabaret is directed by Broadway star Danny Gurwin, also a UA Musical Theatre professor for four years now. It is choreographed by guest artist & Broadway Choreographer, Mark Esposito. The theatre is 260 seats - very intimate. You will be engaged. You will be enthralled. You will leave with some interesting observations & feelings. I doubt you'll keep quiet about all of them. 


See you soon…

UA’s Arizona Repertory Theatre presents CABARET

Book by Joe Masteroff | Based on the play by John Van Druten
& Stories by Christopher Isherwood | Music by John Kander | Lyrics by Fred Ebb

directed by Danny Gurwin | choreographed by Mark Esposito

TUCSON, AZ - Willkommen to the Kit Kat Klub! Berlin is the cultural center of the Weimar Republic, Germany, where creativity, excess, narcissism and political worlds collide. For British singer, Sally Bowles, and a young American journalist, moments of love and the seeds of hate are intertwined with the glitz and tarnish of the cabaret. Created by the genius of John Kander and Fred Ebb, Cabaret captured eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Score. Filled with powerful music and dance, Cabaret challenges us to choose between living with oblivious optimism, or facing the stark realities of life.

when: November 12-22, Thu.-Sat. at 7:30 p.m., Sun. at 2 p.m., ASL interpreters available Nov. 19. A free performance for veterans of STICKS AND BONES on Veterans' Day, Nov. 11 at 7:30 p.m. Seating is limited.

information: Contains mature themes and language. Box office hours: Tue.-Fri., noon-5 p.m. and one hour prior to each performance. 520-206-6986,


Tucson, Arizona--Pima Community College Theatre Arts presents David Rabe's starkly written and award-winning play about a family pulled apart by the return of an injured and emotionally damaged son from the Vietnam War. Using the quintessential model of the American family from the popular radio and television sitcom "The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet" (1952-1966), he offers up an insight that is both counter to that image and shocking to behold. STICKS AND BONES is directed by Todd Poelstra.


David comes back from the war blinded and unable to come to terms with his actions on the battlefield. Ozzie and his wife Harriet are overjoyed to see their eldest son, but David is tortured and broken by his experiences. He is no longer the same young man that went off to serve his country. Younger brother Ricky joins his parents in pretending that everything is normal, but soon the family is overwhelmed, forcing Ozzie to make a stand for the values he can't bear to let go.


Rabe's experience as an Army draftee in Vietnam is evident in the authenticity of the script. In describing the intent of the play Poelstra explains that even though we, as a country, are dealing with returning veterans better than in the Vietnam era, it's still an enormously difficult transition from the life-altering experience of military life to civilian life. As a culture, we tend to let the media define what we should believe, but it is rarely the entire reality. Rabe gives us a drastically alternative view of the ideal family that is tragic yet darkly humorous. Poelstra comments, "The script's style lifts the hard political edge of Arthur Miller with the poetic dialogue of Tennessee Williams and the absurdity of Edward Albee. Rabe gives us an introspection of what it is to be human, a parent and part of the larger community. This production invites us to reassess how we've gotten to where we are." STICKS AND BONES won the 1972 Tony Award for Best Play.


In addition to STICKS AND BONES, Rabe also won Tony Awards for THE BASIC TRAINING OF PAVLO HUMMEL (1971), IN THE BOOM-BOOM ROOM (1974), STREAMERS (1977) and HURLYBURLY (1985). He also wrote screenplays for CAUALTIES OF WAR and John Grisham's THE FIRM. Overall he wrote 15 plays, seven screenplays and six fictions.


A free performance of the play is offered for veterans on Veterans Day, Nov. 11 at 7:30 p.m. Seating is limited. For information contact the box office 206-6986. 


A photo call for the media is scheduled for Tuesday, October 27 at 6 p.m. in the Center for the Arts Black Box Theatre. Director Todd Poelstra is available for and encourages interviews: call 520-206-6815 or e-mail:

ATC Regional Premiere: Pulitzer-Prize Winning "Disgraced", Oct. 17 through Nov. 7



Sent: Thursday, October 8, 2015 4:53 AM
Subject: Pulitzer-Prize Winning "Disgraced" Blisters Racial, Identity Prejudices in ATC Regional Premiere






            TUCSON, Ariz. (Oct. 8, 2015):  Disgraced, Ayad Akhtar's edge-of-your-seat Pulitzer Prize- winning play about a successful Muslim-American lawyer whose dinner guests' discussion of race and identity explodes to reveal racial prejudices and personal secrets plays at the Temple of Music and Art from Oct. 17 through Nov. 7.  I. Michael and Beth Kasser are Arizona Theatre Company's 2015-16 Season Sponsors. 

            The New York Times described the Tony Award-nominee for Best Play as a play that "bristles with wit and intelligence.  Mr. Akhtar, a novelist and screenwriter, puts contemporary attitudes toward religion under a microscope, revealing how tenuous self-image can be for people born into one way of being who have embraced another. Terrific, turbulent, Disgraced comes roaring to life."

            In Disgraced, American-born, Muslim-raised corporate lawyer Amir Kapoor is happy, in love, and about to land the biggest career promotion of his life.  But beneath the veneer, his success has come at a price.  When Amir and his WASP up-and-coming-artist wife, Emily, host an intimate dinner party at their Upper East Side apartment, what starts out as a friendly celebration soon escalates into something far more damaging. Joined by Amir's African-American work colleague, Jory, and her Jewish husband, Isaac, all the elements for fireworks are in place at a party that swiftly turns towards chaos and violence.

"Disgraced will be the most-produced play in the nation this year and it is no mystery why," said ATC Artistic Director David Ira Goldstein, who will be directing the production. "Ayad Akhtar's masterful play seems to be more current every day. Written with the taut, brute force which comes from vital issues of racial identity, religious belief and international power politics, the play has much of the power of a great classic tragedy."

            Tickets for Disgraced are $23-$63 and can be purchased at, by calling (520) 622-2823 or at the Temple of Music and Art Box Office at 333 S. Scott Ave.

Disgraced  will be followed by Stephen Schwartz's new musical, Snapshots (Nov. 29-Dec. 19), brings some of his favorite songs into a new context wrapped in a story filled with humanity and family. Two great American classics follow with August Wilson's masterpiece Fences (Jan. 16, 2016-Feb. 2) featuring favorite ATC artists, and John Steinbeck's classic tale of friendship in hard circumstances, Of Mice and Men (March 5-26). In between, is a special presentation of the recent off-Broadway hit Sex With Strangers (Feb. 11-21) in a unique collaboration with ATC and popular Phoenix-based theatre company Stray Cat Theatre.

ATC's 2015-16 season comes to a sparkling close with the witty Arizona premiere of Scott Carter's new play, The Gospel According to Thomas Jefferson, Charles Dickens and Count Leo Tolstoy: Discord (April 9-30).

This Grammy Award winning Mexican-born comedian is as famous for his work as a comedic actor especially for his TV sitcom 'George Lopez' as he is for his blisteringly funny stand up gigs. Drawing on his difficult early upbringing by his strict but distant grandmother, much of his material comes from observations of this painful experience, and his life as a Mexican-American.

His fanbase is most noticeable amongst the Hispanic community, as they can relate well to his experiences. Lopez manages to tread a fine line between satire and political incorrectness when making uncompromising observations about Hispanic culture, which can make some new audiences occasionally uncomfortable. But more often than not, his fans enjoy his uncanny storytelling simply because of his huge ability to relate to them.


As well as hitting the heady heights of fame in mainstream comedy, he is is highly regarded by the Latino community for his achievements and for his extensive charity work, and was honored with the 2003 Latino Spirit Award for Excellence in Television. He was also named one of "The Top 25 Hispanics in America" by Time magazine in 2005.
