Continuing to explore “some of the wildest territory yet in its Fall 2000 lineup,” the Yale Cabaret in New Haven, Conn. will open Stephen Belber’s Tape on Nov. 9.
Running Nov. 9-11, Stephen Belber’s Tape will be directed by Ilana Brownstein. Production notes indicate that the show is about “three former high school friends must come face-to-face with what may have been a crime as they navigate the murky boundaries of truth, intent, loyalty and justice.”

Described as “the infinitely superior inspiration for ‘12 Monkeys,’” “La Jetée” is French director Chris Marker's classic film. Members of Cabeza de Vaca, 33.3 and Arcaro will be performing an original score.
Nov. 30 - Dec. 2: “Request Concert,” by Franz Xavier Kroetz and directed by Tamilla Woodard Dec.7-9: The Eiffel Tower Wedding Party by Jean Cocteau and directed by Heather Violanti
