THE DRUNKEN CITY
By Adam Bock
Directed by Kenneth Prestininzi
Tickets; students $6.00, general $8.00
Four New Jersey best friends have their life trajectories tested when one uses her New York City engagement party to veer off the agreed upon path of romance and marriage. A bar-hopping, celebratory and desperate-for-fun night of freedom brings unexpected reckonings and transformations as the question of marriage causes their lives, and the lives of the jilted and yearning men around them, to go topsy-turvy. Adam Bock's ultimately optimistic play is a wildly theatrical take on the ever-shifting nature of love and identity among those of us truly opening our hearts for the very first time.

AS YOU LIKE IT
By William Shakespeare
Directed by David Jaffe
tickets; students $6.00, general $8.00
Life is truly confusing sometimes. Our hearts get so full, we pursue and pursue, we write dumb poems (or statuses or tweets or tumblrs or whatevers). We try to figure out who we are in relationship to others, and to ourselves. Sometimes we figure stuff out for a moment, only to be utterly flummoxed the next. We behave according to certain norms or expectations, and yet feel so unsatisfied, so unlike our true selves. As we age, we see life and its ridiculousness.
Some of us don't dance anymore.
Shakespeare speaks to all of this and more in his celebratory masterpiece, As You Like It.
