Tonight through October 28th, you have the chance to see Our Town in the JKB’s Black Box theater. Now, you might be thinking to yourself one of two things:
1) “OH OUR TOWN, SO GLAD TO SEE THE THEATER DEPARTMENT JOINING LITERALLY EVERY OTHER THEATER EVER/MY HIGH SCHOOL IN PUTTING ON A SHOW THAT EVERYBODY WHO HAS BEEN TO SEE A PLAY BEFORE HAS ALREADY SEEN.”
2) “Bro, what the FUCK is Our Town?”
Regardless of where you are on this spectrum, check it out because it means a lot to a lot of people and it’s being directed by a straight-up MADMAN (avant-guarde director Phil Soltanoff) who the last time he was at Skidmore made a group of puppets actors mime the whole Death of a Salesman movie (you know, that one you probably watched in high school) on stage for two hours with the movie playing in the background. And if that’s not theater, I don’t know what i–wait, is that theater? Fuck it, the show is two hours and there’s still time to go out drinking after.
“Our Town” runs from October 22nd through October 28th. Performances are at 8pm except the Sunday matinee (2pm). To reserve seats, call the Skidmore Theater Box Office at (518) 580-5439, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or go to their Facebook page.
