The College of Arts and Sciences and the Department of Performing Arts invite you to our upcoming performances of Sophocles' Antigone. Directed by Gail Humphries Mardirosian and featuring artist-in-residence Paul Morella as Kreon, this production links the classical to the contemporary, interweaving theatre, music, dance, and sign language.
FIRST FRIDAY: Please join us for a special First Friday panel discussion following the opening night performance on February 4th. Valerie French (American University, history), Frank Hildy (University of Maryland, theatre), Zoe Kosmidou (Cultural Counselor, Embassy of Greece) and Spyros Payiatakis (Vice President of the State Theater of Northern Greece) will lead a discussion on theatre as an agent of social change through the lens of Antigone.
TICKETS: $15 general admission; $8 AU community, students, and seniors. Purchase tickets online now at http://american.tix.com, or by calling the Greenberg Theatre Box Office at 202-885-2587.
