15 Nov 2012
The Eastern Region Equal Employment Opportunity Committee and ReImagined World Entertainment will present Christine Toy Johnson's EYE D, which is billed as "a documentary style theatre piece," Dec. 3 at 7 PM at the Leonard Nimoy Thalia Theatre at Symphony Space.
Combining dramatized interviews (conducted with over 50 Asian-American, Latin and African-American women), song and spoken word, EYE D, according to press notes, "takes a look at real stories about race, ethnicity and the beauty of Michelle Obama."
The piece is directed by Mino Lora with musical direction by Amanda Morton and features songs by Kirsten Childs, Gloria Estefan and Julie Gold. The cast comprises Sarita Covington, Maria-Jose Fajardo, Deidre Goodwin, Jaygee Macapugay, Suni Reyes and Dawn Akemi Saito.
There will be a post-show discussion with the creative team plus NY-1 journalist Vivian Lee and Hunter College Community Health Professor Lynn Roberts.
Admission is free, but seating is limited. RSVP to email@example.com. Leonard Nimoy Thalia Theatre at Symphony Space is located at 2537 Broadway (at 95th Street).
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
