Cabaret - RIC Mainstage Theatre's Spring Musical

  • event_note -
  • schedule Various times
  • room The Forman Theatre in the Nazarian Center

In a Berlin nightclub, as the 1920's draw to a close, a garish Master of Ceremonies welcomes the audience and assures them they will forget all their troubles at the Cabaret. With the Emcee's bawdy songs as wry commentary, Cabaret explores the dark, heady, and tumultuous life of Berlin's natives and expatriates as Germany slowly yields to the emerging Third Reich. Cliff, a young American writer newly arrived in Berlin, is immediately taken with English singer Sally Bowles. Meanwhile, Fräulein Schneider, proprietor of Cliff and Sally's boarding house, tentatively begins a romance with Herr Schultz, a mild-mannered fruit seller who happens to be Jewish.

The House of Bernarda Alba - RIC Growing Stage

  • schedule Various times
  • room The Forman Theatre in the Nazarian Center

The House of Bernarda Alba, written in 1936 shortly before Federico García Lorca’s death in the Spanish Civil War, presents a bleak glimpse of rural Spanish life. The wealthy, such as Bernarda Alba, maintain stingy control of everything and everyone around them, while the poor argue over scraps from the table. Often grouped with the plays Blood Wedding and Yerma as a “rural” trilogy, The House of Bernarda Alba examines a world without men that demands conformity, repression, and sacrifice from the women who desperately want hope for their futures.
