Off-Broadway show My Life in Sports
runs this weekend and next!
My Life in Sports, the one-person play from UA Professor Emeritus of English Bill Epstein, opened in our intimate Studio Theater tonight! Tonight's performance was sold out, but tickets are available for all other performances.
The 8-show run spans January 17-27. Tickets start at $15 and are available here, or by calling box office 520-448-330.
"It isn't about sports. Well, there are some sports moments in it, but My Life in Sports is really about life. ... The stage set is very spare. Mostly it is Epstein ... telling stories. The empty spaces are filled in with your own experiences from your own life, your own loves ... and the times when you were a kid, riding your bike around the neighborhood, with a ball glove hanging from the handlebars."
CHUCK GRAHAM, TUCSON STAGE
Don't miss Epstein's "achingly good" performance, with projections by lighting designer Josh Hemmo and original compositions by University of Arizona sound designer Tyler Berg. Bryan Rafael Falcón directs.
