INTAR Will Present "Cat and Mouse Struggle" Teach, Teacher, Teachest
25 Aug 2014
INTAR Theatre will kick off its 2014 season with Teach, Teacher, Teachest, a play inspired by Eugene Ionesco's The Lesson.
Performances will begin Sept. 12 prior to an official opening Sept. 18. The production will continue through Oct. 5.
Directed by Daniel Irizarry, the cast includes Michael Leonard as The Maid, Laura Butler Rivera as The Student and Irizarry as The Professor.
"Teach, Teacher, Teachest tells the story of a pupil who arrives at the apartment of a new tutor for a lesson," press notes state. "What happens to her is as unexpected and random as life itself. Loosely based on Eugene Ionesco's modern classic The Lesson, Teach, Teacher, Teachest is a cat and mouse struggle that questions what is happening and what is not. Daniel Irizarry directs this look at controlling influences, expectations, and the abuse of authority in the contemporary world."
Teach, Teacher, Teachest will have scenic design by Susan Zeeman Rogers, lighting design by Lucrecia Briceno, costume design by Aris Mejías and sound design by Marcelo Añez.
Performances will take place at INTAR's theatre space at 500 West 52nd St. Tickets and more information are available by calling (212) 352-3101 or visiting intartheatre.org.
Featuring the Broadway classics “To Life (L’Chaim!),” “If I Were A Rich Man,” “Sunrise Sunset,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” and “Tradition,” Fiddler on the Roof will introduce a new generation to this uplifting celebration that raises its cup to joy! To love! To life!
